Hi friends, All of us, have some weakness, when it comes to food items. Some would be profound sweet lovers, would have difficult times in controlling their sweet eating urges. Some would be samosa lovers, tempting often to samosa eating urge. Some would be ice cream lovers, some would be chocolate lovers. All of you/us, have one thing in common.............that is............a food item, you love most. That remains as a challenge in your weight loss. In the weight loss process, I am working hard......, my two threads are already in this section. They are: http://www.indusladies.com/forums/k...140889-monday-determination-how-helps-me.html http://www.indusladies.com/forums/keep-fit-and-maintain-shape/126120-lost-four-kg-four-months.html Now coming to the point being discussed here, for me, the food I love most is Biriyani, both chicken and mutton biriyani. There were days, when I have eaten biriyani almost every day (in the past). Now , I am on a weight loss journey. So, I curtail my biriyani intake in the following way. Twice in a week, we go out to eat in restaurants. I have made a rule, that no biriyani should be prepared in home. (out of the fear that if it is made in food, I would eat a lot). The two restaurant outings, in a week, I take biriyani. Before taking biriyani, I order 'green salad' and butter milk. I start with green salad. For every one morsel of biriyani, I take one morsel of green salad also. With maximum restriction , I have curtailed my biriyani intake to twice in a week. I am not able to curtail it beyond this limit.!! Friends.............you must have designed an individual unique way to curtail the intake of the food you love most, in the process of weight loss journey. Share that process of curtailing with us here in this thread.
