My mother-in-law has just told me that when she comes back from their holiday, she's starting on the No-carbs diet. Lots of meat, veggies, fruit....no starches like Pasta, rice, bread, or potatoes. No cakes cookies or sweets.
Honestly, I think it's a GREAT idea- IF she will stick with it and both of us not MAKE any of them. And not just have a "Just a little bit". (That's cheating...I don't care what you say- it IS cheating.) I will, of course, still be making my special occasion cakes.
When I diet- it's an ALL OR NOTHING kinda thing. If I'm serious about it- I do it right. I don't do it halfway. Yeah- it'll be hard, but I can STICK with it. I've been wanting to cut back on the bread and starches, and WAYYYYYY back on portions, but it's not MY house- and I just don't feel comfortable putting dietary restrictions on the family when I'm not contributing except for housework. You know? But since she's wanting to do this- I'm well behind her in her decision. We just gotta stay away from the food programs on the Telly. They are my downfall.........As a matter of fact- I'm gonna have to stay away from TV pretty much ALL the time. Damn food commercials.
Honestly, I think TV is da debil, Bobby Buchet!!!
