Have your cake and eat it...

This morning I had a boiled egg for breakfast with rye bread and some cheese.  Thinking ahead to lunch, we may have sandwich or salad depending on what's in the fridge.  Last night I couldn't be bothered to cook, so had beans on toast.

When we go out, we try to eat something about an hour before we go, perhaps a bacon sandwich.  From experience we know it's better to eat something before going out.  As I have a cooker with a timer, I may put the oven on and cook a couple of jacket potatoes - ready for when we get back. That way we have something to eat if we want to - which generally we do.  Alternatively, we may make a sandwich for later, or have something we can put in the microwave.  All this preparation stops us taking the easy option - dialling a takeaway.  But, if we really want a takeaway, we'll have one.

Because we control our intake based upon what we want to eat, and not what someone is telling us we should be eating, we don't feel deprived.  It's all positive stuff.  I think back to the failed diets I followed and realise that negativity starts at the beginning: don't eat this, can't have that, this or that is not allowed.  Our 4/3 eating philosophy allows everything.  Our method of eating has helped sustain our weightloss, educate us about food, and more importantly, we can have our cake and eat it.
