New things

I read this article yesterday that said that when you start a new diet, don't try a bunch of new things right away because if you don't like them, you won't stick to your diet. Is that true for you?

See for me, the opposite is true. I love taking the opportunity of a new diet to try all the new things that this diet includes. I changed to Core. Core limits some things like rice, pasta, and potatoes to one serving a day before counting the rest towards your 35 Weekly Allotted Points. However there are a lot of things you can eat to satisfaction. So I am having so much fun experimenting and trying new things. I tried polenta last night. I still have a few kinks to work out but it was actually really good.

Yesterday, I was really craving something sweet and starchy like cookies or peanut butter and jelly bread. I knew I could use my WAP to get some, but I decided to see what I could do that would be on my list. So, I experimented. I made a kind of oatcake in my frying pan that was really really good. Again, I will change a few things next time to perfect the recipe but with a little splenda in the recipe, it was exactly what I wanted. It satisfied me. I love the feeling of discovering new healthy and interesting foods to eat. It is fun for me. It makes this whole weightloss journey more fun for me.

I'm all for trying new things too. If I don't like something, I won't eat it again.
Once you get that receipe worked out you'll have to share it.


**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
