eKatherine's own diet


 Summary:

This is my diet. While I eat simply and prefer natural foods, the key to the diet is not following my exact intake. It is learning to eat when you are hungry and stopping when you are no longer hungry. You should choose foods that are satisfying to you, and avoid artificial restrictions that make it difficult for you to stick to any plan.

You are making a commitment to stick to the plan for life. There are no exceptions. Everything can be made to fit within your plan.

The goal is to reach the point where you are able to eat like a normal, slender person: eating only when hungry, stopping when you are not hungry, and choosing what you really want to eat, what you will find satisfying.

 How To Follow eKatherine's own diet:

Eat meals. No snacking. No high calorie beverages. All exceptions must fit in your target calorie intake. Everything in moderation. Exercise as you have more energy, when you lose weight, if appropriate for you. Keep an eye on the scale. If you are not losing weight, you need to reduce your calorie intake.

eKatherine's top tips

1.Eat regular meals. Plan to eat them on time.
2.No snacking. Plan to eat enough so you will not get crazy with hunger before your next meal.
3.Expect to experience hunger during the weight loss phase. Hunger is the sign you are burning fat.
4.At least occasionally, keep track of what you are eating and analyze calorie intake with a food journal.
5.The scale is not an accurate measure of any day's weight. Use it to spot trends. If a week's trend is not downward during the weight loss phase, do several food journal days.
6.Eat simply. Simple foods are easier to fit into a diet plan.

About / History

I have never been able to lose weight in my life. I am losing weight now, and the longer I stick with this the easier it gets, as I have become used to eating modest portions. I have become less obsessed with food, a good thing.
