Eat Right: A Healthy Diet Doesn't Have To Taste Bad

Probably not eating right!
But tastes great!
What a great night with Cheryl for Valentine's Day! We enjoyed our first trip ever to The Melting Pot. Had a great time. Enjoyed the meal. Good thing I budgeted my calories. Only went over my daily goal by a little. Even with two lobster tails. And chocolate. It is true - you can eat good while eating right. Must be why some folks ask me what diet I went on to lose 157 pounds in 15 months. My answer is still the same. I did not go on a diet. I changed my approach to food. Eat right size portions that match the daily calorie use. Simple math. Calories in minus calories out. If you fear that eating right means giving up good taste then read what Portland born mom, wife and attorney, Robin Descamp, says about it. She writes a blog (journey gym 70-day Challenge: A healthy diet doesn't have to taste bad) to chronicle her (and other's) 70 Day Journey Gym Challenge. She writes:
The thing is, if you want to find good recipes that won't make you large, you just need to do a little looking around.  Oh, how I love the Internet.  I have made several dishes from many different websites over the past two weeks, and you would never know they are not bad for you.  These include Thai chicken curry, panko and pistachio-crusted salmon, Moroccan chicken, and rack of lamb with fresh mint and fruit chutney.
Robin, here is a glimpse of what Cheryl and I ate last night.
Dipping Sauce Fondue Pot Hmmm. Chocolate
Because of last night, I missed working out, but no worry. These days I am more active during the day, and tonight I made up for it with a double length JourneyGym routine that wore me out before settling down with a light dinner and then my keyboard. Remember: Eat Right. Exercise. It's that simple. Did not say it was easy. Now it's time for me to hit the shower, and then cuddle up with a new book from Buy.Com.
