There are two paths of weight loss

This is where you exercise and get rid of the fat in your body.

Easy way: Baking soda[edit | edit source]

If you want to eat good, not exercise but still not gain a few extra pounds, put baking soda in your oilly foods and sweets when you cook it. Baking soda has the property of "killing hunger", thus you won't be able to eat as much as you would otherwise. It is suspected, this is the secret to all those fast weight loss plans where they supply the food.

Preparation Suggestions[1]:

* Tenderize meat Got a tough cut of meat on your hands? Soften it up by giving it a rubdown in baking soda. Let it sit (in the refrigerator, of course) for three to five hours, then rinse it off well before cooking.* Soak out fish smells Get rid of that fishy smell from your store-bought flounder filets and fish steaks by soaking the raw fish for about an hour (inside your refrigerator) in 1 quart (1 liter) water with 2 tablespoons baking soda. Rinse the fish well and pat dry before cooking.* Reduce acids in recipes If you or someone in your family is sensitive to the high-acid content of tomato-based sauces or coffee, you can lower the overall acidity by sprinkling in a pinch of baking soda while cooking (or, in the case of coffee, before brewing). A bit of baking soda can also counteract the taste of vinegar if you happen to pour in a bit too much. Be careful not to overdo it with the soda, though -- if you add too much, the vinegar-baking soda combination will start foaming.* Bake better beans Do you love baked beans but not their aftereffects? Adding a pinch of baking soda to baked beans as they're cooking will significantly reduce their gas-producing properties.* Fluff up your omelets Want to know the secret to making fluffier omelets? For every three eggs used, add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.* Use as yeast substitute Need a stand-in for yeast when making dough? If you have some powdered vitamin C (or citric acid) and baking soda on hand, you can use a mixture of the two instead. Just mix in equal parts to equal the quantity of yeast required. What's more, the dough you add it to won't have to rise before baking.
