I am working out no less than 5 days a week. Am I losing weight? Not so you'd notice. This weight loss fail has lead me to believe that I will have to change my diet. In that spirit I thought I'd write them down in the hopes that it will lead me to be more thoughtful
about my food choices.
#5 Avocados - I know that these have that good fat but really it is still fat. I love these so much that I will eat them daily preferably with #4 on my list. If I could just eat them with a little salt and lime (sounds like what I do with my tequilla except that I don't lose apparel with avocados) it would make them a little healthier.
#4 Tortilla chips - What is it about these salty crunchy bits of love that make it so I can't put them down? Are all the manufacturers in collusion to putting an addictive substance into chips to make me crave them? I spend a lot of time telling myself that used as a delivery device for more healthy treats they are okay. They are not okay. They are evil.
#3 Olives - They are a fruit damn it! Why can't I eat as many of them as I want? IT's that good fat thing again.
#2 Cheese/dairy - I put dairy in or on almost everything I cook. I love cheese and truly feel that everything is better with it. My food is better and my life is better. Or so I thought. Turns out cheese has a lot of fat. Who knew? So, it is not that cheese is bad for me it is the amount that I consume that is the problem. I think I have a problem with moderation.
And the #1 thing that I will need to give up in order to lose weight
WINE - the horror! I can't even talk about it.
Excuse me. I need to go cut up some avocados, crack open a bag of tortilla chips, cover them in cheese and olives and pour a glass of wine. Then go huddle in the corner with my bounty while my scale mocks me.
