I will apologize in advance for the length of this. I have a new (to me) strategy for trying to loose weight. At one point I was fasting in the evening and lost a good 20 lbs. I would have no solid food after 3:00pm and would instead drink things that satisfied my craving. v-8 for pizza, beef broth for a steak or juice for something sweet. The thing is, that isn't sustainable. So what I've been trying to do lately is take smaller portions of meat and starches and cut my food up very small. What I've found is that it gives me the sensation of eating a-lot. I get the ongoing flavor while allowing my brain to realize i'm full. I still believe in the old saying eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper, but it's nice not to feel deprived. Unfortunately people will look at you strangely when they see you pick up one pea or piece of corn, but the complements that other people make about your weight loose will more than make up for it. So far It's about 10 lbs. The other nice thing is it helps you to slow down. Part of the reason for my current weight is that I could and did wolf stuff down. I hope this might be a help to someone else and please share any of your methods for loosing weight.
