I know what you’re thinking. Let me just share this one thing with you. One of the reasons I was on so many YOYO diets was because food was bland and tasted like crap. Sorry. Not sorry! There are just certain things that must be incorporated into my life in order to maintain my 65 lb. weight loss results. All while completely avoiding that awful feeling of deprivation. That is taste + flavor of my food 100%! You feel me? There is nothing like the flavor of amazing spices with meat that is cooked in its own juices, including the fat! That’s where all of the nutrients are making it super satisfying with ZERO guilt!

I was on this same journey myself … 65 lbs. overweight on a fat free diet. The food cravings were agonizing and legit ran (and ruined!) my daily focus. I was unsatisfied after a meal and pretty much hungry all day long. I was afraid of fat. Yet so freaking tired of chicken breasts, broccoli and brown rice, I didn’t know what to do. To top it off, I had tons of hormone issues and digestive problems as well.
Enter “eat fat burn fat” before it was even a thing. This was over 11 years ago prior to becoming certified in all things holistic nutrition and functional medicine – getting to the root cause to achieve true weight loss, fat loss, energy, focus and more. I was finally able to balance my Macros in the correct way for my body and metabolism. I was no longer starving all day long. It was a serious time for celebration. Lol
Aside from the customized fat loss coaching I do in my holistic nutrition practice, that’s where my amazing recipes come in. Be sure to check out some of the others here on my blog! In the meantime, here is the recipe for these Weight Loss Duck Legs that will have you eating more + weight less in no time!
Weight Loss Duck Legs
- Mary’s Duck Legs… up to 5 lbs. for ideal batch cooking!
- Organic Italian Seasoning (use all organic spices!)
- Garlic Powder
- Sea Salt
- large pan to accommodate the amount of meat that works for you!
- Oven temp: 325 degrees
1. Preheat oven to 325.
2. Clean duck legs and place in pan.
3. Use a sharp knife to “score” the skin creating small lines in the skin to help the fat drip into the pan.
4. Season meat with sea salt to desired amount. (this tends to be different for everyone… I like to do a light amount and then add more if needed during meal time)
5. Then, season meat in the following order with GENEROUS amounts: garlic powder, Italian seasoning, paprika… heaviest on the Italian seasoning.
6. Bake uncovered for 50-90 minutes depending on how quickly your oven cooks + how many lbs. of duck legs you’re cooking. Ideally use a meat thermometer to be sure they’re done. Ideal internal temp= 170 degrees.
Save drippings for future use… cooking veggies or shrimp in duck fat are both amazing! Feel free to contact me if you have questions ~
