I've come to the conclusion that for me all food is relevant but in moderation. I heard a talk about cheese and which ones to avoid if on a calorie & fat reducing diet. A certain low fat hard cheese was recommended. People complained about the low fat hard cheese they'd tried and I figured if we ate 2oz of full-fat when eating cheese meals plus small portions of other foods there'd be no harm done. Not unless people are allergic to certain foods like being wheat, dairy, nut intolerant or whatever else then those should be foods to be avoided. Unfortunately I overeat bread and with that put on huge amounts of weight. I'm almost addicted to carbs and find myself reaching out for them & not even noticing when I've had enough. I've wondered if this is famine mode but whatever it is I'd like to stop that for good. I've continued to buy and buy slimming magazines and it has just dawned on me that I don't really need to do that apart from getting inspired by the success stories of good people who've succeeded on their programmes. I'm convinced that even small amounts of fat is necessary in the diet my reason being I've noticed if I forgo fat my skin goes dry and awful. I will continue to measure my food with my scoops and scales but I think my days of cluttering up the house with slimming mags are numbered. I need exercise and the classes I attend are good and have helped me shed pounds even though due to the number of people the trainer doesn't correct people's moves or stances. It's wierd but I have constantly read that diets don't work and now I'm begiing 2 see the light where that's concerned. A wholesome varied diet in correct portions is what works for most people I know.
