Spray, Don’t Pour!


When Rosie was 300 pounds, dinners were automatically prepared in puddles of oil, with each measly tablespoon tacking on an additional 120 calories to her already fattening meal. To lighten up her recipes when she embarked on a healthier eating plan, Rosie switched from pouring on the oil to spraying on the oil. Now, when she sautés veggies, pan-fries meats, and scrambles eggs, she coats the pan with cooking spray — a simple change that dramatically cuts down on the fat and saves thousands of calories per week. Tweaking her cooking technique helped Rosie knock off over 100 pounds — and maintain her loss for nine years and counting!
