Keeping the weight off

by Khushboo on March 29, 2010

Because I lost weight gradually, my eating habits aren’t so much ‘diet’ now but instead a regular lifestyle.  I also love exercising (especially running) and work out 4-5 times a week, which helps a lot in keeping the weight off.  People always ask me if I have ‘cheat’ days but I can genuinely say that I don’t feel the need to as I enjoy ‘healthy’ foods, and actually crave them (I don’t think I can go through a day without at least 1 apple).  That’s not to say I’m some kind of self-confessed martyr.  Like any other female (excluding the few abnormal ones  😀 ), I absolutely love desserts and chocolate.  However I just don’t have the urge to indulge in them on a daily basis. 

As of now, rather than following any particular diet, I eat whatever I feel like (fortunately these foods tend to be nutrient-rich).  However I do make a conscious effort to eat a balanced diet by basing my meals on: ½ vegetables, ¼ carbohydrates, ¼ proteins (more about this later). I tend to stick to:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch 
  • Afternoon snack
  • Dinner
  • After-dinner snack/ ‘dessert’

My only 2 rules per say are to run a minimum of 16 miles a week and to write everything I consume down.  My beloved Blackberry could not have made the latter any easier: I just have a weekly memo and add to it daily/throughout each day.  Writing it down makes me more aware of what I am eating and also think twice.
