    Default Diets that cause guilt

    So. Im avoiding any major parties/get togethers that have huge spreads of food. I have a bit of trouble over eating, so I fix that with proper portioning. When I cook at home, I do really well.. but..

    ...When the UFC fight comes up and my sister makes fajitas and queso, and I don't want to go and stay home to eat spaghetti and stay on track, she doesn't quite understand.. and its hard to explain. "So just dont eat! come on over!" It's never so simple is it?

    This might sound weird but can you take a divided plate with you? Or a bento box or something to control the portions? I also have some of those trays with little areas for things, like kids use in a cafeteria. They work great for a buffet.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    One of the great advantages of a high-fat, low-carb, moderate protein diet relative to the popular low-fat diets is the ease with which one stays on it primarily due to the dramatic reduction in hunger/cravings one experiences. LF diets seem almost perversely designed to induce addictive and compulsive behaviors wrt to food...

    These are all good suggestions. I do have several bento boxes, but they're in storage still since all my kitchen stuff is tucked away when I moved back home.. Maybe I'll have to set some time digging them out and keep a set boxes in the car.

    Eating out is another thing I have a problem with.. @-@.. I just <3 food so much.. And its funny because I honestly don't have a large appetite. I can cook a small portion meal and be satisfied entirely.. but then I just end up eating more than that from the loving-food end of the chart.

    +1 ketogenic/low carb is healthy and easy to make into a lifestyle. Its as easy as eggs and bacon for breakfast (if im on the go, I do cheese), meat and vegetables for dinner. Lunch is tough due to the propensity for everyone to want sandwiches. You can still enjoy the benefits even with 100g carbs a day though. Plenty to have a sandwich at lunch. Just ask yourself (goes to anyone) one question, where would have paleolithic man been able to forage the hundreds of grams of carbs a day that modern nutritionist recommend?

    I straight up laughed out loud. Since when is spaghetti healthy? Even in the world of the high carb US food pyramid, it takes like a 1000 kcals of spaghetti to fill me up (+ a nap)

    Whole wheat spaghetti with eggplant, onion, spices, some cooked turkey meat, and proper portioning is definitely healthy.

    I just don't eat a bulldozer's worth the way you do apparently.
