Is it the punishment for loving food, that at some point in your life you look into the mirror and you realize that … well… you could do with losing a few kilo’s? More then a few would be a better description..:)
Ofcourse you can punish yourself even more and start a crashdiet. Bad for your temper, bad for your health and in the end, possibly bad for your weight as well… O what are we to do??!!
I figured that not eating is simply not an option. I’ve tried the famous “Sonja Bakker-diet” but trust me that is just sooooooo boring. It’s easy and it works, simply because you get to eat roughly 1000 kcal a day, which to me is just too little for any healthy human being. It probably works for people who don’t like to cook and don’t like to think about it either, but for me I can survive for one week but then I have to have some real food.
Anyway…. to make a long story short; something has to be done or else…
On the positive side; I spend a great deal of my time already going through cooking magazines and books, so the only difference now being that I also watch what the calorie-count is saying below each recipe. And voila, homemade “diet”, which is really just healthy and sensibly eating, doing enough exercise and not eating too much!
So for lunch today I decided I was gonna try a vietnamese carrot salad which is low in calories (only 147 kcal, so you get to eat something else for lunch as well..) and you can tell that it is very healthy.
