Diet is Die With a T
Have you ever noticed that the minute you decide to go on a diet you instantly feel as though you are starving to death? I know I do. I even start dreaming about food at night. Visions of ice cream sundaes, cakes, pies, and French fries start dancing in my head.
f you are anything like me you start salivating at the idea of a piece of pizza or even a plate of spaghetti. You are sure you will dwindle down to nothing by the time you get off this infernal diet.
A few months ago my doctor told me I would have to go on a very restrictive diet. Yep, no salt, no sugar, carbs went the way of the wind, and don't even talk to me about eating anything with fat in it. That's right, instant depression. What in the world was I going to eat? Everything that taste good has at least one of those things included in it.
Anyway, I finally decided that since I had to go on this diet I would try to make it as tasty as I could. Once I picked myself up off the floor and started perusing the internet I found out that dieting really isn't as bad as it once was. I mean, people actually were able to get some good meals out of the allowed food.
I actually like some of the food I am now eating. The Mediterranean diet is a really tasty diet. All you have to do is google Mediterranean diet and you will have access to oodles of recipes.
One of the recipes that I especially like is a spinach shrimp dish. You take about a pound of fresh spinach add a couple of tsp. minced garlic and sauté in olive oil until the spinach begins to wilt. Add the shrimp to it and sauté for a couple of minutes (until the shrimp turns pink). Take my word for it, it is delicious.
I also found that the Whole30 diet has some pretty good recipes. They are certainly worth a try. If you have to diet you might as well enjoy it.
Give it a try. I wouldn't steer you wrong.
