French fries are a very addictive snack to have during the day. They can be a problem for anyone trying to lose weight. However, it is possible to create "fries" that are good for you and won't create havoc on your scales. Cut these fries into half the size, add some salt and bake them on a single layer sheet for about half an hour. Loosen these potatoes using a spatula, and then turn them and bake for about ten minutes. They are wonderful with ketchup, and they are also much lower in calories of fat. You will not miss the fried version. Thanks to the cookbook by Laurel's Kitchen for these great tips.
If you are trying to lose weight, make sure you are getting enough sleep. When you are chronically sleep-deprived, your body will produce excess cortisol, and that can lead to weight gain. Be sure to get a good 7 or 8 hours of restful sleep every night in order to be more successful in your weight loss efforts.
