Diet with SushiAre you looking for a new way to lose weight while enjoying sushi? here are five tips:
1. Go slow. Sushi is a highly delectable dish, but it may take some getting used to. If you are not yet used to eating sushi, then you might want to eat moderately. Start with a piece or two every day before trying a batch of them for your meals.

2. Opt for variety. There are numerous types of sushi, sashimi, and maki you can choose from. To make your meals healthy, enjoyable, and even exciting, mix-matching your ingredients and toppings is recommended. You can go with vegetarian sushi made with eggs and fruits in the morning, heavy meat sushi for lunch, and light tofu maki for dinner.

3. Don’t forget your side dish and condiments. Side dishes like ginger, soy sauce, and wasabi are eaten with sushi not just to add flavor but also to balance the raw fish.

4. Count your calories. Although sushi is generally healthy and can help for losing weight, some come with naturally fattening ingredients. If you wish to lose weight with a sushi diet, you have to avoid those that contain high amounts of fats such as avocado, mayonnaise, cream cheese, and deep fried rolls.

5. Choose brown rice. All types of sushi comes with rice. Rice comes with significant amount of carbohydrates which can fuel our body, however regular white rice, if taken excessively, can make you gain weight instead. That said, decrease your white rice intake, and, if available, choose brown rice.

I'm a fitness nut. I know what you're thinking, one of these people who has never been fat a day in her life, and can eat whatever she wants. The truth is I struggled with my weight growing up and lived in a household where everything seemed to be fried. Once I got away from home I realized I had the choice to eat and exercise how I wanted. I've gained a lot of insight into working as a personal trainer, and feel I can relate to others that were in my situation. I think if I can do it then you can to, and if you want to start kicking butt then hop on board and lets get started.
