Lose Weight While Eating Yummy Food

I don't believe that you have to eat boring food when you are trying to lose weight. Life is too short to eat things you don't enjoy. For example, if you have to ask, 'how can I make this tuna in springwater taste better?', perhaps what you should really be asking yourself is, 'why am I eating tuna in springwater if I don't like it? What can I eat instead?'

How long can you maintain a 'diet' where you eat food you don't like?

I hope that by posting my menus, recipes and food pics I can show that it's possible to lose weight while eating yummy food.

I felt a bit 'flat' this morning at the gym, so I trained back (it needs the least amount of work of all my body parts) and did an easy cycle.

Food so far:
Breakfast: oats cooked with milk and topped with peaches in mango & banana puree and yoghurt
Lunch: egg and lettuce sandwich on Burgen bread; yoghurt, pear

To come:
Snack: almonds, apple gluten-free chocolate, raspberry and hazelnut cake
Dinner: salmon, veggies

After dieting to compete in 2007 and struggling with diets for another two years, I swore that I'd NEVER eat tuna in springwater again. IMO: its cat food.

I do enjoy my food – I just don’t love it. Which is good, because it stops me from eating too much. I agree – this is impossible to sustain forever – which is why I regularly institute Free Days so that I can eat the stuff I ‘love’ and get it ‘out of my system’ before going back on my rigorous plan. Doesn’t seem like deprivation so much when you know you will be able to enjoy whatever you want in the near future. I’ve never been one of those people who can have ‘just one bite’. Or ‘yeah, allow yourself to have chocolate – but just one square of dark chocolate every day.’ If I could stop at one square, then I would never have had a weight problem in the first place. LOL I don’t even like dark chocolate – I like the ‘unhealthy’ milk chocolate.

Hi Kathleen, it hard to stop at just one bite isn't it!
