Ingredients and Preparation
Ingredients Measures
Pork tenderloin 10 ounces
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Cooking spray
Garlic, chopped 4 cloves
Fresh rosemary 1 sprig

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  5. Take pork out of oven, transfer to platter, and let rest 10 minutes before serving.

Water Before Meals May Promote Weight Loss
August 2015

A randomized trial found that drinking water before main meals led to higher weight loss than those who were asked to imagine a full stomach before main meals. Water preloading is believed to help create a feeling of fullness or satiety during the meal, which may help curb overeating.
