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.
