eating to live, not living to eat

Friday, November 13, 2009

Dr. Oz, my favorite doctor says in his diet book to find some favorites for breakfast and lunch and to stick to them. He says that a lot of variety tends to stimulate your appetite. I have tried this, and it works!

So I am in the process of figuring out what I can have each day for breakfast and lunch that is healthy, easy and good! then at dinner I can have more variety.

Somebody else said on these pages that you should eat until you are no longer hungry instead of eating until you are full. That has stuck with me and I am going to follow that too. Thanks, whoever you are.

    Hi Marti. How are you doing so far? I'm a newbie here at SP. I hope to see that you are losing. I am going to give this my best shot. Lord knows I've tried everything else. Keep me posted. Rebekah

    I, too, am a fan of Dr. Oz. I think what you are right. I try to have the same breakfast and lunch each day with little variation. I think it helps me feel full when I know that is all I have for the meal. I haven't been able to start that process with dinner, though. That's harder, but I agree with you. If I follow that plan for the early meals, I'll have a little flexibility in the evening. It's hard not eating till I'm full, but I'm trying wait time. After I eat my initial serving, I wait for a little while before going back for more. Sometimes I realize I've had enough...not always.

    Dr. Oz is one of my favorites also. Sounds like good advice. I also have something to suggest that has been working for me. Instead of finishing everything on your plate, I have started to leave a bite here and there, so you aren't eating as many calories. Seems to work. Sounds like you're on the right track, so keep on chugging. emoticon
