I am really struggling right now with this weight loss thing!! Found a book I have had for a long time - "Gentle Eating", a different approach to weight loss. The author is a favorite of mine - Stephen Arterburn -
His first premise:
We live in a society that wants instant satisfaction - he begins with the suggestion of changing the environment where you eat. Instead of the fast-food mentality, choose a pleasant, stress-free atmosphere. When we take time to enjoy a meal, we - I - find that I feel full and satisfied.
An example for me is when I fix fish - now becoming a favorite. Dinner is fish, brown rice, and a veggie. I find myself savoring each bit - eating less - and being very satisfied after dinner.
