This looks like such a great group - I love food. Food is good. Food is one of the great joys of life. I also want to lose weight, but not so much that I want to diet. Dieting mostly doesn't work, anyway. Most people who lose weight when they diet put it straight back on when they stop dieting. Two friends of mine (who are married to each other, and he diets when she diets), have done the yo-yo thing at least twice now. I was putting on weight until about a year ago, when I changed my daily eating habits. I eat multi-grain bread now instead of white bread and lots more vegetables, and stopped eating danish pastries everyday for morning tea, but I don't feel deprived. I cook yummy food, and I eat until I'm not hungry anymore. I haven't lost any weight, but I'm not putting on any either, and that's okay at the moment for me.
My favourite junk food is Arnott's chocolate mint slice biscuits (don't know if you get this brand in the US, I am an Aussie). I also like chilli flavoured chips, the Kettles brand is the hottest and the best.
Yesterday I ate:
b/fast - muesli, orange juice, a pear
lunch - heaped large plate of BBQ pork, sweet and sour pork, braised chicken with vegetables, with fried rice and singapore noodles at a serve-yourself Chinese fast food place.
dinner - can of coke, 2 large bowls of lemon sorbet, four open sandwiches on home-made grain bread (cheese, roast pork, lettuce and tomato). Half a packet of chocolate mint slice biscuits.
Lots of water during the day.
So far today (it is lunch-time), I have had:
2 cans of coke
4 open sandwiches on home-made grain bread (1 cheese, 2 tomato, 1 salmon)
I haven't eaten any biscuits because I don't have any in the fridge. If I'd have had some, I would have eaten them already today. I have little will-power when faced with chocolate mint slice biscuits. My will-power extends only to buying the normal size biscuit packet instead of the double-size one.
