Dieters : Put MORE Focus on Food

read ( words)

If you're always on a diet you probably spend half your life thinking about food ? what you can eat and what you can't, what you'd like to eat if only it was allowed, what you'll have for your next meal, what you shouldn't have eaten at the last one...

The last thing you think you need is to spend more time thinking about the seductive addictive substance that lies at the root cause of your weight problems...

But I'd like to offer an alternative viewpoint.

What if you focused on the quality of your food as well as the quantity? What if you decided that you would only eat the very finest, most delicious and nutritious food available ? food that was good for your body as well as your taste buds? And enough of it at every meal to feel pleasantly satisfied. Wouldn't dieting get a lot easier to stomach then?

Now you may doubt that such food exists but you only have to look at the myriad of available low-fat low-calorie recipe books to see that delicious and nutritious real food is available to anyone who is willing to make the effort to seek it out and cook it.

The secret of losing weight without losing heart after a week is to look for those recipes that you will personally enjoy. Build up your own collection of winners that you can enjoy for the rest of your life.

Of course you can overeat on healthy delicious food as well as you can on junk but it's a lot easier to stick with modest portions when you cook and serve yourself just the right amount - you don't have to fill your plate like they do in a restaurant. And because you know you can cook the same delicious dish again at any time and that you have planned something just as delightful for your very next meal, it's hard to feel deprived by stopping at the point where you are satisfied rather than stuffed.

My own personal collection of recipes has stood me in good stead over the years and I am forever experimenting and looking for new ones to make meals even more exciting. Does your food match up? Why not add a few recipes to your repertoire this week and for the next few weeks. Keep it simple if you're not used to cooking. Some of the best recipes I have take just 10 minutes ? faster than you can order in a pizza.

Weight loss has never tasted so good.
