Are you having trouble sticking to your diet plan? Do all these low cal foods just start to taste the same and you’re not sure if you can cram one more salad with low fat dressing down your throat again? If so, I’ve been in your shoes. I’ve eaten what I was “supposed” to eat day after day while everyone at work was having brownies and ice cream. But, I stuck to my plan. Sometimes, though, it’s hard to keep moving forward when nothing really seems to taste good and the results are so slow in coming. It’s not like saying no the brownies one day will give me 5 automatic pounds off the scale. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
But, before you give up and just throw caution to the wind and start stuffing your face with every rich, delicious food you can find, I have an idea. There are some foods that are pretty low in calories, but taste like high calorie foods. The trick is to figure out which ones you love and add them to your meal plans, so you’re not feeling so deprived all the time. A must have for every kitchen is the “Eating for Life” cookbook by Bill Phillips. This book is awesome and includes lots of delicious recipes that taste like cheat meals, but they’ll fit right into your healthy eating plan. My favorite recipe in that book is the Enchiladas. They are so delicious and definitely taste like high calorie, high fat food. But, they’re not really. The portion size feels right and I feel satisfied both by taste and amount that I ate after eating them. That’s just one example of a great recipe in that book, so I really recommend that.
Here’s a dessert that you might not expect to fit in with your meal plan. It’s Jello. It hardly has any calories and tastes delicious. It’s just what you need when you’re feeling like cheating. It’s great with fruit and you can even add some whipped cream which only has about 10 calories per tablespoon.
The truth is, if you’re careful about your portion sizes you can probably eat almost anything and still feel good about your diet.Kuliner kota Malang…
