Dieters : Put MORE Focus on Food
If you're always on a diet you probably spend half your lifethinking about food - what you can eat and what you can't,what you'd like to eat if only it was allowed, what you'llhave for your next meal, what you shouldn't have eaten atthe last one...
The last thing you think you need is to spend more timethinking about the seductive addictive substance that liesat the root cause of your weight problems...
But I'd like to offer an alternative viewpoint.
What if you focused on the quality of your food as well asthe quantity? What if you decided that you would only eatthe very finest, most delicious and nutritious foodavailable - food that was good for your body as well as yourtaste buds? And enough of it at every meal to feelpleasantly satisfied. Wouldn't dieting get a lot easier tostomach then?
Now you may doubt that such food exists but you only have tolook at the myriad of available low-fat low-calorie recipebooks to see that delicious and nutritious real food isavailable to anyone who is willing to make the effort toseek it out and cook it.
The secret of losing weight without losing heart after aweek is to look for those recipes that you will personallyenjoy. Build up your own collection of winners that you canenjoy for the rest of your life.
Of course you can overeat on healthy delicious food as wellas you can on junk but it's a lot easier to stick withmodest portions when you cook and serve yourself just theright amount - you don't have to fill your plate like theydo in a restaurant. And because you know you can cook thesame delicious dish again at any time and that you haveplanned something just as delightful for your very nextmeal, it's hard to feel deprived by stopping at the pointwhere you are satisfied rather than stuffed.
My own personal collection of recipes has stood me in goodstead over the years and I am forever experimenting andlooking for new ones to make meals even more exciting. Doesyour food match up? Why not add a few recipes to yourrepertoire this week and for the next few weeks. Keep itsimple if you're not used to cooking. Some of the bestrecipes I have take just 10 minutes - faster than you canorder in a pizza.
Weight loss has never tasted so good.
