Zero Deprivation Diet

I’ve been on this ‘diet’ for quite some time now – and I have to say that there is really ZERO DEPRIVATION involved. I have eaten EVERYTHING – butter, cream, chocolate, cheese, breads, pizza, beef, fried foods….and the list goes on.

This really is not a diet for me anymore – it is a way of life and eating 400 calorie portions just means eating things in moderation. I crave nothing because I get it all. I don’t make every meal a heavier one. But with some of them, I pack the 400 calories with ingredients that are just going to make it TASTE rich and decadent. Other meals I get more bang for my calorie buck by serving lots of veggies, fruits, fish, grilled chicken – all the things you expect to see when eating healthy. It’s a balancing act – but well worth the effort because I can eat things like you see here on my blog…

And so can you – and you can lose weight while doing it !
