The question for the day is :
How often do you go back for seconds?
How did you know that? Have you seen my hourglass figure or what? I am forever trying to lose weight and never managing it. I am tired of making resolutions and I am not going to make them anymore. Period.
I have noticed that three things are helping me control my diet. Frequent small meals, using a small plate, and not going back for seconds. More or less, I have tried to incorporate this in to my daily routine. But sometimes it does become difficult to follow. I skip a few meals and then I end up taking a huge meal at an odd time. This is the sole reason for my not being able to lose weight.
I haven’t gone for walks for more than a month now. ( Ahem…. The reason is purely medical…something to do with Uric Acid and all). When I do go for those walks, I feel more peaceful at meal times, I feel as though I have earned the meal and relish it with love. When I don’t go for walks, I feel guilty about it and then I stress eat more than I can chew.
So the key is to go for regular walks, use small plates, eat frequent small meals and not go for seconds. Oh My, this looks like a list of resolutions for the New Year. And we all know how resolutions work out. 😀
We also need to drink plenty of water, have fresh fruits and vegetables, reduce the quantity of meat and carbohydrates and concentrate on more natural protein sources. These can be easily done.
We also need to stop having potato chips, chocolates and fizzy drinks completely. Fast food is an obvious health hazard. These cannot be easily done. At least not for me. I love junk food too much!
It is said that if you chew your food for a longer period of time, you will not put on more weight. I am guessing this is because we get too tired from chewing to eat more. 😀
So, what is your diet like? Do you skinny people eat anything cooked at all? (Grrr…)
