Thats easy... eat them at lunch on a side plate!

I found it easier, I am a huge dieting disaster! don't get me wrong I slip up when it comes to soup or stew try fitting that on a sideplate and not in a bowl! you'd starve lol but you know what I don't have to give up anything at all if I want a desert I'll have one on weekends or I'll serve it in a martini glass. the trick is telling your mind you've eaten enough so make it tall but small lol

That's good advice Anna. Weighed myself this morning and good news I've lost a couple of pounds but it is hard work! To make matters worse I have 2 social events this weekend and it is so difficult to keep on track....the worse thing, I find, is telling people you are ...on a diet....or not drinking so much. Some people make it a point of telling you "you don't need to lose weight, go on..have a dessert or another glass of wine wont hurt" best to say nothing and side step the debate!

When I'm out I just ask for my serving to be put on a sideplate. Resterants are more than happy. I'm not on a diet! When anyone has commented (usually a family member) i just say "you choose to eat how much you like and i dont comment please show me the same courtousy" I've learned all to well diet means deprivision I crave for all I shouldn't and wouldn't normally touch. I'm just choosing to eat smaller portions and over filling a side plate instead of a dinner plate... I was brought up with a no waste mentality one which I never press on the children foodwise. If they leave their meal it'll go in the dog

I was the same..if you put it on your plate or had seconds you had to eat it. My mum couldn't stand waste. Must have been very dufficult going through the war, those sort of things stay with you I guess.
Lucky for me I was a right guts! Skinny as anything and ate what I liked when I was younger....then middle age crept up and all my past sins decided to heap theirselves round my tum and b um!

Try it at home first, use your dinner plate as a charger, set a large wine glass full of water and if you like wine with a meal have a small glass of wine.. Put an extra plate out cover in cling and pop it in the fridge or freezer for a ready meal. I find nice suroundings (a dressed table) helped me feel good about my choice. I also served a barefoots breakfast fruit crunch in a martini glass for desert using fat free Greek yogurt.

You like Ina too! I love her food and her house...swoon! Her hubby is so sweet, is he really that niave though? She has some lovely male friends..Lol!
It's important to set the table, I agree, I love pretty dishes and flowers ( couldn't eat a whole bunch!) It makes the whole eating experience so much nicer.

Okay, I know it's lunch and not dinner, but...

Pan-fried smoked salmon with mustard and chive dressing, new potatos and squeaky beans.
Then lemon cheesecake with raspberry sauce.

You thought that was aimed at you?

I was just posting on a food-type forum.

?squeaky beans?

In reply to an earlier post on 7 Jul 2012 14:59:46 BDT
French beans. They squeak when you eat then, hence...
