Just had to create this blog...
Just finished reading a delightful blog from THE SLOWEST LOSER team: How to lose 8 pounds in 13 hours. It was so funny.
The gem in it was some tips about never eating when you're not hungry, eating slowly, not overestimating your calories burned, AND... ENJOY WHATEVER YOU DECIDE TO EAT!
That last bit really hit home. I read all these fantastic diets...most of them filled with things I would never eat, or recipes with more than 3 ingredients which I would never cook. If I could just find a diet based on French & Italian bread, butter, raspberry jam, 1/2 & 1/2, Reeses pb cups, I would be in diet heaven. But alas, I have to eat these in moderation, balanced by protein, veg and fruit in larger quantities. Okay, Okay. Reality sucks!
