Slim Down with Resistant Starch

Resistant Starchbe Resistant or Eat resistant

According to recent studies, resistant starch foods will make you thin. This is another example of Round foods naturally working on your side to keep you looking and feeling healthy – for resistant foods also happen to have a Round shape.

What is Resistant Starch?

Resistant starch can be described as a nutrient found in certain carbohydrate-rich foods that mimic fiber during digestion — while still providing similar health benefits.

Health Benefits

  • Aids weight loss and digestive health
  • Helps prevent constipation
  • Helps to maintain blood sugar levels
  • Reduces the risk of developing diabetes and heart disease
  • Boosts immunity
  • Reduces the risk of colon cancer
  • Increases mineral absorption

While resistant starch is found naturally in certain foods, the cooling period of the cooking process can create higher levels of resistant starch. When starchy foods are cooked, starch absorbs water and then swells. During cooling of cooked foods, some of the starch crystallizes into resistant starch. Cooling foods in the refrigerator or at room temperature will cause resistant starch levels to rise.

Winner of the Healthiest Breakfast

Simple to Make and Tasty To Eat

A new study discovered that the healthiest breakfast is a simple bowl of cereal with milk.

By starting your day with cereal and milk, you will be less likely to stuff your face with fatty, sugary food during the course of the day. Plus, cereal nutrients your body with calcium and a variety of other key nutrients, such as fiber and protein.

Feed yourself and your loved ones a whole grain cereal with milk, and for an even more nutritious, delicious, energy-boosting breakfast, add berries or a sliced banana to the mix. Of course, the choice is always yours!

Recipe

Ingredients
2 cubes of butter
1 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 to 1 1/4 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 swirl of light Karo syrup
Up to 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

In a large pan, add the butter, sugar, almonds and Karo syrup. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and browns into toffee. (See the video for the exact color.) Pour the molten hot toffee mixture onto a large rimmed cookie sheet and spread evenly with a spatula. Pour the desired amount of chocolate chips onto the hot toffee, wait a few minutes and spread evenly. Sprinkle the desired amount of chopped walnuts over the chocolate, shake the pan, and sprinkle more over less nutty spots.

Let the candy cool at room temperature for at least 3 hours, or until it is not sticky to the touch. If you are in a hurry, place the pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then break the hardened candy with the tip of a knife or just use your hands. It is then ready to eat and can be stored without refrigeration.

You can also break it up into tiny pieces and top a bowl of vanilla ice-cream with it. Wrap some candy in a holiday container and then give it as a gift to friends or the host at a holiday party. Everyone will love it!

Food Thoughts Help You Eat Less

Think FOOD, Eat less

Some of our smartest scientists at Carnegie Mellon University discovered that continuous thinking about eating a particular food, such as candy or cheese, resulted in the study dieters to eat less of those foods they craved when it was offered to them.

This goes along with the already well-known idea that thinking about a food can make your mouth water. These savvy researchers extended this idea to find that you can also think your way into being satisfied without actually eating the food.

The study used M&Ms and cheese cubes and learned that imagining eating a lot of a food caused the mind to subconsciously restrict how much of that food the dieters actually later ate.

In a nutshell, the study conclusion found that people who imagined eating more food ate less of that same food when it was set before them later on.
