It's hard to believe, but I'm finishing week three out of five of my Start Fresh kosher weight loss diet. I hope to get to my neighbor today to see how much weight I've lost. My skirts feel looser, really.
I do eat well on this diet. I have cooked vegetables almost every meal along with fresh salad. Some meals are only salads, and sometimes I feel that I've had enough salads, so there are cooked vegetables. Generally the protein is either eggs, fish, tofu or white (hard or soft) cheese. I stopped eating yellow cheese a few years ago. There are just too many ingredients. Read the fine print on the package. Also my cooking has a minimum of ingredients.
Like this baked vegetable dish. You can see everything; just sprinkle on some oil and any spices you want. It's no more difficult than making a sandwich. You just need the cooking time. If you like to microwave, which I don't, it really takes a couple of minutes.
If you want to cut out the oil, bake it on the special paper or in a cooking bag. No, you don't have to burn it like I did.
The Start Fresh kosher weight loss diet recommends a lot of tofu, but I think the amount they like is too much for me. Not everyone digests tofu easily, so next time I'm reducing the portion.
Fish is great, and it's filling. I found some individually-wrapped in the freezer section of our local supermarket.
