A Foodie’s Guide to a Fat-Burning Super Bowl

Are you ready for Super Bowl 50 this weekend? We can help keep you in the fat-burning zone without skipping the buffet!  Yup! With the big game coming up we all want to sit in front of the telle and eat especially if we are wondering if Payton will win and there is only a short time left before the final buzzer goes off.  You get nervous and start eating.  Below are a couple of wing recipes that you can enjoy during the game along with some of those wonderful fresh veggies we all love.  I have to say wings are a favorite of mine so I do plan to eat a few and the hotter the better.  Personal Trainer Food generously sent me the recipes for all to enjoy.  Thanks Personal Trainer Food!

Super Bowl Wings

Ingredients:
1/2 C Vegetable Oil
1/4 C Fresh-squeezed lemon juice

1 t Garlic powder

Close the bag and shake to combine. Season to taste with pepper.

  1. Put the chicken in the bag with the marinade. Seal it, eliminating the air, then turn turn to coat the wings evenly. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. Prep BBQ grill or oven grill for medium heat. Oil your BBQ grill or the pan you are using to grill in the oven so the wings don’t stick.

YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE  Can You Have a Cheat Day and Still Lose Weight?

That is a loaded question and the answer is basically NO.  If you are wanting to stick with the program and lose the unwanted weight you need to follow the program.  Sure you can have a cheat day but you will pay for it in the long run.  You could gain weight which comes back on much quicker the cheating way than normally, you forget your purpose for trying to lose weight in the first place.  So if you don’t even consider cheating and it won’t be an issue and you will continue to reach your goal weight.  But you might want to read what the trainers are saying about it.
