Insanely Low Calorie Parmesan Chicken & Zucchini Fingers

Serves 4

I love this recipe for so many reasons. First, it’s a low cal version of two traditionally deep-fried menu items. Second, it’s so-o-o easy. Third, the kids lo-o-ove it! And fourth, I get to sneak in an extra two servings of veggies and nobody complains – at least not yet. Wait until they read this and realize the hoax I’ve been pulling.

Place 2 four ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts between 2 sheets of waxed paper or saran wrap. Pound with a mallet or heavy pan until each breast is approximately 1/4 inch thick. Cut chicken into 1 inch wide strips, then cut in half horizontally. Pat dry.

Trim 1 medium zucchini and slice lengthwise 1/4 inch thick, then trim to roughly the same size as the chicken fingers.

Arrange 3 shallow dishes or pie plates side by side. Place 1 cup soy flour that has been seasoned with salt and pepper in one dish, 4 egg whites or 1/2 cup egg substitute in the one next to it and 1/2 cup grated low fat Parmesan cheese in the last dish.

Stack one slice of zucchini on one slice of chicken. Dip each 2 layer finger in flour, egg and then cheese, pressing into cheese so that it adheres well. Use toothpicks to secure if needed.

Oil the grill, then spray both sides of each chicken finger with oil. Grill over medium heat 6 minutes per side.

Serve as is or with bottled pasta sauce or try this mildly spicy and deeply flavored dipping sauce.

Roasted Red Pepper Dipping Sauce

Place in blender jar:
1 sixteen-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 sixteen-ounce can fire-roasted tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper to taste

Calories per serving:
100 without dipping sauce. Add 7 calories for every tablespoon of dipping sauce that you use.

Taco Chicken

Spray 2 four ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts with an olive oil spray. Place contents of 2 taco seasoning packets in shallow dish or plate. Coat chicken with taco seasoning pressing chicken into seasoning so that it adheres well. Let chicken sit for 15 minutes.

Grill on lightly oiled grill over medium heat until cooked through, turning once, about 6 minutes per side.

Allow the chicken to rest for at least 10 minutes. Using 2 forks shred the chicken and place in a bowl.

Set up a selection of toppings for the chicken. This recipe assumes that each person will be using 1/2 a chicken breast or 1 cup of shredded meat for 2 or more tacos. Those who are interested in a low calorie meal should stick to the salsa and lettuce. Everybody else can indulge in their fave toppings.

Suggestions for Taco Toppings:

fresh salsa or chopped tomatoes
shredded lettuce
sliced olives (12/tablespoon)
guacamole (22/tablespoon) or small avocado cut into 6 slices (40/slice)
shredded low fat cheddar cheese (14/tablespoon)
low fat sour cream (20/tablespoon) or fat-free yogurt (9/tablespoon)
chopped cilantro
6″ soft corn tortillas (45/tortilla)
lettuce leaves for bunny style tacos

Calories per serving: 231 if using 1 cup shredded chicken bunny style with salsa only. Add to your calorie count from the list above if you’ll be adding items to your taco.

Stovetop Style

Any of the above recipes can be easily prepared using a lightly oiled saute pan instead of a barbecue grill or-r-r, wait for it …

Oven “Fried”

Spray one side of chicken with oil and place oiled side down on a bakers cooling rack resting inside a larger pan. Spray top of chicken with oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn chicken and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

How Alkaline Energized Water Can Help You Lose Weight Faster

Published by:

I’m always looking for little tips and tricks and when I heard about alkalinized water I started doing some research. I want to reiterate that there are many things that you can do to speed your weight loss or jump start you off a plateau and I don’t advocate adopting every single tip and trick that we give you here at the UnDiet, but I do want to pass valid information along and address as many of the fads that we see out there so that you can make a reasonable decision that works for your lifestyle, budget and goals.

Thank you to Spirit of Alkaline for their detailed explanation below to my queries about using alkaline ionized water to boost weight loss.

You can take your weight loss regimen to a whole new level by drinking some fresh from your tap Alkaline Energized Water. Alkaline Energized Water has a high PH balance (ph of 8.5 to 9.5 – which is also extremely beneficial as an antioxidant) on top of being super hydrating and beneficial when you’re working to lose weight. Alkaline ionized water has been shown to be up to 6 times more hydrating than bottled water. So drinking specialized waters, in addition to a good diet, such as the alkaline structured waters can help flush acidic wastes as they accumulate in the body.

Fat helps protect the body by buffering it against toxins that get trapped in fat cells. When you lose weight your fat cells release entrapped toxins. This is perfectly normal in most people and should never be cause for alarm. Straight from your tap Alkaline Energized Water is a great solution because it provides better oxygenation directly to the blood stream – this is good news as it does help to optimize cleansing and detoxification during the weight loss period, and beyond.

Drinking the right kind of water may benefit you by helping you lose weight safely and quickly – and because of its incredible ability to hydrate your body up to 6 times more than regular bottled water, your exercise regimen will be supercharged. Alkaline Energized Water hydrates on a cellular level.

We recommend straight from the tap alkaline energized water because of its potency; this is fresh structured water (not bottled). The structuring process the water must go through is what makes this water so deliciously hydrating, and effective for exercise recovery, weight loss, flushing lactic acid build-up.


All About Lipodissolve Injections

Published by:

More and more people are now becoming more curious about lipodissolve injections. Lipodissolve has several other names such as Lipostabil, Flab-Jab, Lipojection, Lipotherapy and many others. For the benefit of those who don’t know, lipodissolve is used to remove fat deposits through the use of injection. This is considered to be an alternative for liposuction. However, before you decide to undergo this process, there are some important things you have to be aware about.

This process makes use of compounds. The main compounds used for lipodissolve are phosphatidylcholine (PC), and Deoxycholate (DC), also known as PCDC. However, this chemical solution has not yet been approved by the FDA to be used for injections. Some doctors also add other chemicals, vitamins or herbs but these two compounds are the main ingredient. But you have to be aware that according to experts, there are issues concerning the quality and sterility of these compounded drugs.

Lipodissolve can be applied to many areas in the body such as the chin, abdomen, thighs, etc. however, keep in mind that this is not FDA approved. It also involves 2-4 treatment sessions to achieve the best results. Is this really effective for weight loss? You have to understand that lipodissolve only eliminates localized fat deposits, so if you are expecting a major weight loss, you may just get disappointed.

Now, the important question you may have in mind is if this process is safe. Until now, there is still an ongoing research concerning lipodissolve injection, so until no definite findings have been stated, it will be best if you consider every aspect and research more about this before you go through the procedure. Though there are a lot of people who may have found this procedure to be effective, it will be wise to seek advice from experts before you make your decision.

HCG Drops as a Means to Lose Weight

Published by:

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HGC drops are a homeopathic weight loss and detoxification aid. HGC is a hormone that is released by a female’s placenta during pregnancy, and is primarily used by the body to give “instructions” to the hypothalamus gland. This is where HCG’s potential to create weight loss conditions within the body take place, as the hypothalamus is responsible for controlling thyroid functions, metabolic rates, and the storage of fat. By “turning down” thyroid functions, increasing the metabolic rate, and burning fat stored within the body, HCG helps to create an ideal environment for decreased fat stores and increased energy – in other words, weight loss.

When released during pregnancy, HCG helps the mother’s body create an ideal environment for a human baby. Such an environment doesn’t store fat, instead it uses, or “burns,” existing stores of fat in order to properly nourish both the mother and her baby. In addition, it turns the fuel, or food, that the mother consumes into the extra energy that her body needs during pregnancy. However, when HCG is introduced in a human body that is not pregnant, by means of HCG drops, it essentially “fools” the hypothalamus into creating the same conditions within the body as if it really were pregnant. Thus, the non-pregnant body ramps down the thyroid and starts burning up fat cells and using food that the person eats for energy instead of performing its natural function of turning extra fuel into stored fat.

All of this means that the ingestion of HCG drops, and HCG subsequent introduction into the hypothalamus, will work to help you burn fat stores, increase your energy, and ultimately lose weight. Since HCG is a naturally occurring hormone in the human body, it is a completely safe and effective way to achieve your weight loss goals. Not only that, it will also help you keep the weight off by continually burning all of the food you eat, instead of storing extra food as fat. This hormone is entirely legal, and is not currently subject to any negative legislation like some other weight loss aids. If you want to get rid of your extra fat and stay slim and slender afterwards, you’ll want to give this one a try.
