Looking back over my food diary for the last few weeks I have decided that we can really eat a lot of food and not put on weight, as long as it is the right food. I am almost never hungry. I snack a lot and I eat sensible, but certainly not tiny, portions at meal times. Of course the difference is that now I am eating low fat, lower carbohydrate and healthier foods. But they are still mostly delicious. I really don't feel that I am missing out on anything. I am still craving chocolate, but after my 2 weeks are up I have decided to eat small amounts of chocolate each day if I feel like it. You know the saying "French women don't get fat" and that is because they don't deprive themselves of any food they really desire, they just eat small amounts of good quality and tasty foods such as chocolate and cheese and fresh crusty breads, fresh fruit, vegetables and lean meats, fish and nuts. Sounds good to me!
I knew my Mother must have given me a French name (Suzanne) for a reason!
