Sicilian food is one of the most delightful branches of Mediterranean cuisine that has become popular across the world. It is characterized by light, low fat dishes that will be a great way for anyone wishing to lose weight to get into their desired shape. If it is further combined with Herbalife products, the results that you are eager for can be just around the corner. But what is the best way to combine a healthy Sicilian meal plan with the Herbalife products that you are planning to pick out?
Firstly, we need to state that Sicilian cuisine is an extremely healthy way of eating, and has relatively little to do with the standard Italian fare of Pizza and pasta. These are of course eaten, but the emphasis is placed on fish, fresh seafood and fresh salads and vegetables. The relatively low-carb content of the diet makes it a perfect complement to a Herbalife weight loss plan. Here is how to best combine them.
To start with, the basics will remain the same – the Herbalife shake for breakfast and one other meal. Take the tablets three times a day as instructed, and drink the tea throughout the day and throw in a glass of aloe now and then to maintain optimum levels of hydration. The real fun comes for lunch (or dinner, depending on your plan) where you get to experiment a bit with Mediterranean goodness. Let us take a look at some of the staple parts of the Sicilian way of eating:
- Fruits and vegetables, in large quantities
- Bread and other carbohydrates in small quantities
- Fish, large amounts and varied sorts
- Beans, peas, potatoes and other starchy vegetables
- Milk and cheese are always a good option
- Fruits and nuts
- Natural olive oil is a primary source of unsaturated fats
Some foods that are eaten less are:
- Eggs – only one or two a week
- Red meat
You can make plenty of healthy combinations from the above list. For example, if you take the shake for breakfast and dinner, you can have a delicious lunch from ocean fish, peas and cheese. If you are having dinner as your main meal, a light seafood pasta can be a great way to seal a successful day. Have some small snacks between meals, such as a few pieces of fruit and a small salad, and you will be good to go!
As for alcohol, the Sicilians love their wine, and it is almost omnipresent at their meals. For us who are trying to lose weight, this might not be the a go-to drink and you would be wise to instead take a glass of Thermojetics or Aloe. Of course, feel free to let yourself go from time to time and have a glass of white or red wine. Read more about Herbalife on this page.
