Secrets of Success

Eat What You Want, But Eat Everything/anyt
In Moderation.



For all my weight loss (and moreover, maintenance), I have not been super concerned with how many carbs vs proteins vs fats, or good vs bad carbs, etc... I know I need a reasonable mix, and I know not to overdo anything. So yeah, I pretty much ignore the so-called nutritional advice, other than ..

  • That has worked for me in the past but now I am diabetic I am struggling to stay in balance with prescribed diet. - by JEWELS2355
    I love to read / hear this. Yet, fear of overdoing is strong. A person must have great self-control to allow any and everything whenever. You have done an excellent job of controlling yourself. I have had to stop going to my fav Mexican Resturant because I eat too many chips before the meal. I hope to be able to handle this better. - by MAY21IWILLDOIT
  • This is so true. I used restrict myself to the point of insanity and when I allowed myself to eat a "banned" food, I would go overboard. Now I have my dark chocolate when I want it and knowing that I can have it makes me crave it less. Great advice!! - by MEEBELO
