Meatball Pasta Soup; Diets – the only one that works, guaranteed! — 11 Comments

  1. You are right on spot, diets don’t work in the long run! It’s all about portion size, moderation and moving. My best friend was very successful doing that and that is what I am striving to do.

  2. Yes – portion control is the answer. I eat my food from bowls as opposed to plates now to keep serving size down.

  3. Pam, it’s not perfect, but it does work over the long term… Just tiny changes can do wonders.
    Betty, I’ve been exercising and watching my weight my whole life…. usually, successfully. Just can’t seem to forget my hummingbird metabolism of my youth LOL
    Zoomie, I have a chocolate in front of me as I type 😉
    TikiPundit – okay, now I have to Google TED…Wow! Thanks!
    Val, thanks…
    Kate, small plates work great – And that’s what they use in the Senior Apartments my mother is in. The food fills the plate, the seniors can eat it all yet they don’t get too much!

  4. This is such a great post, Katie! I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life, and the only thing that works is making changes that fit in with the way I like to live my life. I love to cook–that won’t ever change, so even if I try to eat “diet food” for awhile, eventually I’ll stop. It’s eye-opening to see all of the little things you can do for your health!

  5. Ruth, the thought is simple; the execution can be more challenging LOL
    Thanks, Food Hunter!
    emiglia, I’ve had to watch me weight ever since I left university and didn’t notice my metabolism changing (desk job). Diet food does not work for me. skipping a pat of butter does.
