Knowing the caloric value of your foods is a crucial factor to control your  weight loss.Even when you cut down your carbs to the minimum level,your liver still stores fat because of the high calories you take.

To be clearer,taking 100g of stewed+100g of  grapes+100g of boiled brocoli equals 261Kcal;as compared with 100g of lamb fried without oil+100g strawberries +100 of Brussels Sprouts boiled which gives 297Kcal ,these 36 kcals  mean an extra 4lb of weight a year .

Here are some great metabolic recipes from the Metabolic Cookbook with less caloric content and  high nutritional value.We wish you enjoy them.
