15. I follow my own souped-up version of the Dukan/Atkins diets -

One day per week, I get to splurge on whatever I want - NOTHING is off-limits.

But the rest of the week, I'm eating low-carb - just for example - omelettes, chicken sausage, salads, chicken dumpling soup (I eat LOTS of chicken), sauteed spinach/creamed spinach, steamed broccoli, sauteed cabbage, and snacking on baby carrots or celery/peanut butter, stuffed olives, cheese cubes.

White wine with meals, water, coffee or tea are okay.

In sum, I can eat most things except white bread, potatoes, pasta, rice or whole milk, and no sugar. Personally, I've never been obese, even when I've let my diet go, but nonetheless, I find I can eat just about whatever anyone else is eating, I just have to pick out the simple carbs.

It's possibly boring, I suppose, if you don't have time to cook or prepare meals - because that really does limit you. Thank God for crockpots and George Foreman! lol
