Explore the menu that helps you lose weight by substituting cinnamon sugar and sweetener

 

Several studies suggest that cinnamon has a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes. In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells. It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.

Breakfast:

  • 2 slices of light bread with grains
  • 1 tbsp (tablespoon) of light cream cheese
  • 1 slice of turkey breast
  • 200 ml of skimmed milk with sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon (dessert), cinnamon

Nutritionist Tip: Eliminate the sweetener. Cinnamon already does this role. You can replace a slice of bread with a serving of fruit.

Morning Snack 1: 

  • 500 ml of green tea with lemon grass and cinnamon

Morning snack 2:

  • 1 piece of fruit

Lunch:

  • 2 spoons of rice
  • 1 spoon (soup) beans
  •  a saucer of lettuce salad
  • a roasted eggplant with ricotta cheese
  • 1 spoon of steamed cabbage and carrots
  • 1 small fillet of grilled chicken
  • 1 apple

Nutritionist Tip: Season the salad with a dash of extra virgin olive oil to add a source of good fats to the menu.

Afternoon snack :

  • 1 plum yogurt zero fat

Nutritionist Tip: Add a little oatmeal to yogurt to give it more fullness.

Dinner:

  • 1 saucer of tomato salad with steamed broccoli and spinach
  • 2 tablespoons of lean ground beef simmered with crushed 1 orange
  • 1 fruit baked with cinnamon
