I have struggled with my weight for years, at my largest I was 260 lbs, extremely unhappy and confused as to why I could not get the weight off. I tried everything, fasting, the big name diets that provide you with food or make you go to weekly meetings like you are in food AA, counting calories, workout diet plans... everything. Not until I came across a wonderful cookbook by Candice Kumai called Pretty Delicious did I learn where I was going wrong, I was eating processed foods, stuff w/ preservatives or chemicals that claimed to be "low fat" or "low calorie" and yes they were, but so is tree bark and I don't see anyone eating that!
So I stopped eating anything w/ chemicals or preservatives, started drinking more water and slightly cut down my portion size and dropped 135 lbs. I am not a workout fanatic, I try to move my body as much as I can (I have a two year old so that is not difficult) but truly my weight loss came from a healthy diet.
So here are my favorite recipes, this is what I cook and what I eat: tonetiki.wordpress.com
