With so many fad diets going - me, a hungry consumer (pun intended) - is left confused and frustrated. Us fat people are meant to be jolly you know, and it is precisely us that need to lose weight - it just goes against the principles! One diet vouches for 30 pounds in 30 days with some water based diet while the other cuts off every good thing and vouches for 50 pound loss. But what's the point? Depriving myself so will only pave way for my going back to all the favorite foods with a vengeance and get me back exactly to square one.. oh well except a lighter wallet may be not so much the lighter me. Instead, I think we should be able to enjoy the good foods sensibly. That way I won't feel deprived and end up attacking the French fries as if I have not eaten for 3 months like a hungry caveman (or woman!) from the Ice Age. Few miniscule changes here and there and voila - welcome to the utopia - guilt free, good eats. The important trick - cheat your mind into believing that you just ate all those calorie rich and appetizing food while in reality you haven't. So what are the cheat codes which have worked for me? Here goes: 1.Cut out oil in the skillet Did you know that whenever you need to saute onions in a skillet, you actually don't need oil to do so? Heat the skillet, when hot, add the onions and little bit of salt and give it a quick stir. The salt will bring out the moisture in the onions and will also help it to cook. You can add rest of the vegetables to this mixture and continue cooking as if nothing happened! You just cut out 1 tablespoon of oil (or more) which amounts to approximately 120 calories in one go. There is no loss as such to the good taste. 2.Say NO to yellow (no, I am not talking about lemons) Any recipe that calls for eggs, you could benefit from a little deviation from the recipe. Instead of a whole egg, just add the egg whites. Have you tried making omelets with just egg whites? Or how about your favorite buttermilk pancakes? Or maybe the all time favorite, good old fashioned corn muffins? There is no reducing the flavor and at the same time you get to enjoy your favorite, dayto-day foods without all that fat and cholesterol from egg yolks. 3.Include lots of protein and fiber in your diet Not only is it healthy, but it will also fill you up faster - so naturally, you would end up eating less. Lean meats, legumes, tofu, yogurt are some fill-me-up-fast foods. A simple baked Falafel burger for lunch is not only delicious but also immensely healthy. You won't miss your hamburger.

4.DON'T eat healthy - just sneak in healthy Why do New-Year resolutions never work for me? I set such a lofty goal, I know I am never going to reach it - ever! So in the same vein, don't go all out and decide on eating all healthy things that your mind revolts against, and eventually breaks you. Instead, when you find yourself reaching out for the buttery dinner rolls next time, why don't you reach out for these Quinoa dinner rolls? They taste very buttery though they have no butter! Or go for these mixed bean and quinoa croquettes along with your salad. 5.No need to give up that dessert Now I would expect the obvious question - what about dessert? Do we cut that out? Not in a million years- I can't think of foregoing my desserts. So how in good God's name are we cutting out calories then? Strawberry and lavender sorbet and Orange givrees make excellent desserts and they have the nutrition from fruits. Baked ricotta berry cakes are my personal favorite - " healthy and lip-smacking good. These are just few ways of making minor changes without actually having to cut down anything. It's not about depriving fries and ice creams - it's about making these minor changes in day to day eating habits so that eating our favorite foods occasionally don't make us feel guilty or leave us wanting. So what about you? Do you have any tricks up your sleeve that you use?
