I've pretty much realized that in order to drop weight I have to change the amount I eat. I generally eat well. I don't eat junk food - having a pizza is a rare event and I get guilt trips over it anyway. My problem is I eat a lot of what I do eat. I eat rice and wheat pasta until it comes out my ears and vegetables and chicken by the ton. I probably eat too much canned food too - baked beans over rice with hot sauce is a favourite! I don't eat too much red meat and when I do it is extra lean. I eat these foods primarily because I prefer the taste - I'm not obsessed about fat per se; I genuinely don't like fatty foods. The problem is that I can eat a pound of pasta in one sitting without too much trouble. I weigh 177 pounds and need to drop 15 for race season. No matter how hard I try, I just can't seem to reduce my portion size.
Is it simply a case of slowly reducing what I eat, or should I fill up on other foods instead? I just don't seem to be dropping any weight no matter how much I ride the trainer. I'm not a big drinker either.
