Take advantage of bright sunny days by enjoying a healthy, lean grilled meal that will help you keep shedding the pounds. Grilling foods is a great way to prepare a tasty low-fat, low-calorie meal. Foods naturally lose fat as they cook on a grill.  You can begin by selecting lean cuts of meat allowed in your Diet Center program such as beef tenderloin or sirloin, pork loin chops, salmon fillets, or skinless chicken breast. Try them marinated in fat-free salad dressing for added flavor. You can also season with vinegar, herbs, lemon juice, or vegetable oil. 

Remember to keep portion sizes in mind. Four ounces of raw meat is about equivalent to 3 ounces of cooked meat.  Lean meats cook fast, so you can prepare meals quickly. Just remember to keep an eye on them while grilling. Fish is usually done when it flakes easily or if the temperature is 160 degrees or above.  You can also grill your veggies and potatoes to complete your tasty lean meal!  They can be seasoned with fat-free salad dressing as well, or any other appropriate seasoning you desire. So enjoy a tasty lean meal to help you lose weight while you enjoy the weather!
