My name is Richard and I am a foodaholic. I can't quit this addiction. I can't go to rehab and say, "I'm cured!! I don't eat anymore!" It is something I must deal with everyday.
The best way for me to deal with my addiction is to constantly work at eating healthy and regularly. I read nutritional labels. I use calorie counters and guides to total everything that goes in my mouth.
I use my measuring cups, spoons, and scales to make sure I am getting the proper serving sizes. (It still amazes me how much food I used to- and will - eat if I don't measure.) I use Sparkpeople.com to track my calories and fitness EVERY day. It's amazing how fast fat, and calories will add up if I don't track them constantly!
I also plan ahead as much as possible. If I plan the day before what I am going to eat the next day, I will usually stick to it. (It also helps me in the time department!) If I don't plan ahead, it usually ends in overeating and heavy snacking while trying to figure it all out!
It is a constant battle, but I am succeeding. I have lost over 50 lbs in the last two years and 25 of that has been in the last 3 1/2 months. (update- it's now up to 80 lbs!!)
This blog is to help myself and any others to cook and enjoy healthy foods. I hope some of this will help you.
