A Great Discovery today!!

Monday, January 09, 2012

At last!! After all these years of yo yo dieting, I have finally discovered who/what is my enemy. It is my taste buds!! Now I would not go so far as to say I wish I didn't have taste buds. They do give me a lot of enjoyment. But therein lies the problem.
Take for instance today at lunch. I had fixed myself a ham and cheese sandwich. Made with 2 slices of 45 calorie Sara Lee wheat bread, mustard, a 30 calorie slice of ham, a 70 calorie slice of cheese, some chopped onion, some sugar free pickle relish and lots of lettuce. Believe me, it is very yummy. I could eat it every day and do indeed do so a good bit of the time. As I was chewing on the last bite I found myself saying, "hey, that's not so full of calories; you could maybe have a second one." But before I allowed myself to listen to my taste buds, I quickly dished up my sugar free Jell-O with a dab of Cool Whip.
That nipped the taste buds in the bud (no pun intended). I remember going to a fancy restaurant once and after the salad bar, they brought us some sherbet ~~~~ I guess to cleanse our palate. So you see, it does work. Get those yummy tastes away from the taste buds and introduce something that is good but low in calorie. By the time you finish that you discover you are really quite satisfied.
