In consciously cutting back on fats and oils, since the fat you eat is the fat you wear, not carbs! I changed over to rice milk original. It's so good, and adds just enough sweetness, for me anyway, to cereals. I still use unsweetened organic soy milk for my soups and cooking.
I had been eating TOO MUCH vegannaise since it is so good, and was fearful of stepping up on that scale... but it didn't make a difference! I still hadn't gained any weight back...I haven't lost another pound, but as I said I am eating too much fat.
On occasion I have oreida onion rings, the gourmet ones, they are HIGH FAT! even though I bake them, but still no animal products, just fat fat fat...
so I am on a roll excluding fat from my diet to see how much more weight I can lose, and still eat how I enjoy eating. I also realize that eating such bulks of foods in order to keep satiated seems to have stretched my stomach and I seem to eat more than I ever ate before. I can see this as a potential for problems if I continue to eat too much fat as I am getting plenty of calories from my veggies and starches. So if you feel the same way, just watch out and keep track of your fat intake.
DON'T get discouraged, just pay attention, it's not that hard when your health depends on it! AND Kudos to you for taking the steps to being healthier and living happier longer for yourself and your loved ones.
