Sometimes I like to blog about things other than cross stitch and this is one of those times. My DW and I are starting a new diet supplement and I am starting a new eating plan. My DW has actually been using this supplement for a month and I have seen her lose weight and have lots of energy so I am trying it.
Today I wanted to share my eating plan. I call it cupa, cupa, cupa. You'll see why in a minute. At each meal I eat up to 3 cups of food.
Here are the rules...
1. Each cup has to be a different food.
2. Foods combined together into a dish count as one food. In other words I can't have 3 cups of spaghetti just because it has pasta, sauce and meat.
3. If I am going to have 3 cups, one has to be a fruit, veggie or green salad.
That's all the rules!
Wait a minute.. How can that be all the rules?
I know what your saying... That won't work... You could eat anything in those other two cups.
True. I can eat one cup of potato chips, one cup of ice cream and one cup broccoli. I can go to a fast food place and eat a cheeseburger, fries and a small salad.
The point of this eating plan is to have portion control and variety. Diets that restrict what kind of foods I can eat, don't work for me because I "cheat" and then feel defeated.
If a cup is too much for you then you could use 3/4 cup but I wouldn't go smaller than that. I need to feel full (not stuffed)... Full after each meal or I will be eating again in an hour.
This works for me but it may not work for you...take it or leave it.
