Who doesn’t love french fries? French fries are bad for those trying to lose weight. However, you can have your french fries and still not sabotage your diet by baking instead of frying. After slicing potatoes into 1/2″ strips, place in a bowl along with 1T of canola oil. Sprinkle with pepper, salt and other seasonings of your choice. Arrange the fries on a roaster pan or cookie sheet in just one layer and bake at 400 degrees in your oven for 30 minutes. Use a spatula to turn it and then continue baking for ten more minutes. These fries are great with catsup and contain far fewer calories than their deep-fried counterparts. This great “French Bakes” recipe is courtesy of Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.

Focus on establishing good habits that will help you lose weight rather than focusing on eliminating all your bad habits. Making positive changes in your diet is a great way to make sure the diet sticks. Replace your habit of stopping at the doughnut shop in the morning with a visit to the fruit stand. Replacing an existing habit with a new one is easier than breaking the habit altogether.
