Healthy lunch ideas can overcome a major weight loss obstacle. Most people don't just abuse lunch. They plunder it.

You may ask, "Why bother with lunch?" Just skip it and save the time, calories, hassle and money? Right? See how a low calorie fast food strategy and smart brown bag lunches can save mega calories, and your sanity, everyday. Here's proof…

Why A Low Calorie Fast Food Strategy Is Critical For Weight Loss Success

Significant research proves the fewer meals a person eats, the greater the likelyhood of obesity. My experience validates this research. It's true.

Scientists speculate when you skip breakfast and lunch, your blood sugar becomes unstable causing cravings and hunger which leads to overeating. Worse, evidence exists that if you eat one large meal a day of 1,500 calories -- rather than several meals totaling the same amount of calories -- you are more prone to gaining weight.

Eating large meals frequently, can interfere with metabolic efficiency, promotes high cholesterol and insulin resistance. A steady diet of large meals will sap your energy and make you feel like a lump. A prescription for weight gain.

Fast Food Strategies To Shrink Your Stomach

Smart lunch ideas include eating smaller, more frequent meals and snacks. Over time the smaller meals cause your stomach to shrink. Which should result in you feeling full and satisfied eating less. People who eat several meals a day are less prone to craving and gorge-fests.

Skipping lunch is not effective for weight loss and usually results in more calories consumed rather than less.

If time is a problem for you, I recommend the multiple options included in this section. It doesn't matter if you're a brown bagger or a fast food luncher. This list offers workable solutions for any hurried person wanting to transform lunch from weight gain liability to a weight loss asset.

Low Calorie Lunch Solutions

Low calorie foods are not necessarily diet food. Nor does all low calorie food taste like styrofoam. For instance, your basic McDonald's hamburger has only 250 calories. Which qualifies it as one of many low calorie sandwiches.
