I think when we use portion control, it helps to keep us satisfied.
When I go to lunch at a health food store and they like me so give me a lot of food. Lately I have cut the portions in half and have taken that home.
I eat at this health food store/cafe almost every day. So it is healthy!

Have to avoid all the cues in the environment to overeat. And the freebies...cookies and free cheese samples at the grocery store add up.

Portions as served to us make us think huge portions are okay. But when you start to calorie count you can see how many calories are in things. A serving is usually l/2 cup of something. Dieting is all about reading labels, too.

One has to "earn" a weight loss of two pounds a week. It won't happen from wishful thinking.

I have had a week of binge-free eating. Just eating low calories. No snacks but I do have some zero calorie small hard candies on hand. Don't want to chew gum.


Gone are bags of popcorn and/or chips with hummus!


Have a "tea tray" set up to make matcha tea or green tea at any time.


Happy with the weight loss this week. Think I have made big strides in behavioral changes. I am still eating Christmas cookies but limiting to one a day with decaf coffee after dinner...which is fine.

I was starving and now I am not. What happened? I took away refined carbohydrates and added more protein in the form of nonfat yogurt and nonfat cottage cheese. This was on the advice of a dietician who recommended this because I complained of hunger and am on a vegetarian diet. I don't eat nuts but I do eat pumpkin seeds. Anyway...I think I resolved the hunger issues.


Now the challenge is just to avoid temptation which I have done okay with this week.



For now eliminated rice and beans and substituted home made zucchini noodles with fresh tomato and parmesan cheese...my favorite dinner.



Anyway....if seems I have reduced hunger pangs. The key seems to be to cut out all junk food and junk snacks ENTIRELY.


One cookie a day isn't going to break the diet. I don't drink eggnog or alcohol. Those can really mess up a diet.


I cut out the vegetarian half subs at Subway because of the bread.

Am going to eliminate the cookies. I don't like the idea of "reward" food and would rather come up with non-food rewards.

A close relative sent me food as a Christmas gift. This was the fourth time in a row they sent me gourmet food items as a gift. I complained to them and of course we ended up having a big fight. I was really displeased because I am vegetarian and they sent me bacon salad dressing. This is a close family member. I was really disappointed.


I was going to send the stuff back to them and even boxed it up then I realized it would be rude.


I ate some of the chocolates and some of the horrible gourmet popcorn. After eating healthy for days with salads and fresh fruit.


I hate, hate, hate processed "gourmet" food items. This whole thing ruined my holiday.


Now I have all this chocolate candy around. I guess I will stash it in the back of the freezer.


As for the bacon dressing...it looks so gross. I should throw it away. It's not something I would give to anyone.


There's also some kind of pumpkin butter spread which I will never use. I don't even eat toast.


Who knew it would be so hard to steer clear of crap food at the holiday?


Trying to get back on track.

I ate more of the chocolates someone sent me. This isn't even the way I want to eat. I don't have a thing about chocolates. It is just that someone sent me TONS of bad food.


Tonight I am gathering up what remains and throwing it away.


I loved having a simple diet of salads, low fat dairy, fruits, and vegetables. I feel good eating that way.


I feel like processed food poisons me. I may be a bit orthorexic, but I don't care. I was losing weight and feeling good, and now the holidays ruined everything.


There is so much crappy food around during the holidays.


Tomorrow I am starting afresh and happily going back to my plain vegetarian fare.
