    A pasta diet?

    Can you lose weight eating pasta? I'm not sure its in any way proven but since I've been eating pasta I have lost weight. I used to rarely eat it on the assumption it was calorific, but recently I've been experimenting with eating smaller portions. Instead of the packet recommended amount (dry...

    Does bread dominate your diet?

    Some cultures are more reliant on bread than others. Here in the UK it is common to eat toasted bread for breakfast, and a sandwich for lunch. Decades ago it was even common to have buttered bread as a side to an evening meal. During the winter months I find it difficult not to gravitate...

    Considering going the vegetarian route!

    Hello to all fellow Cooking Bites members! It's been a while and it feels good to be back. I hope everyone is well! I have been thinking about eliminating meat products from my diet (for the last year, roughly), for a number of reasons. The animal-cruelty aspect of things, the health side of...

    Recipe Low Calorie Cauliflower Soup

    Don't throw away the trimmings from that cauliflower - the leaves and stalks make a fantastic low calorie soup. My guess is that the calories are approximately 40 cals per small bowl. I should have weighed the trimmings. Ingredients (makes 2 small bowls of soup) Leaves and stalks from a...

    How many meals do you eat each day?

    How many meals and snacks do you eat each day and which ones are most important to you? I write here as someone who eats very oddly - I eat one very late meal per day which is not usually very calorific. Tasting the food I cook happens all day and usually I have some sort of snack like a small...

    Why Your Diet May Not Be Working

    I've just finished reading quite possibly the best article I've ever read about weight loss: http://time.com/4793832/the-weight-loss-trap/ No, this isn't a fad diet...quite the opposite. Rather, the article examines why some diets work for some people and not other people, while also...

    South Beach Diet

    Hi all, @morning glory suggested I begin a thread on the South Beach diet that my husband and I are currently following. This is less about being on a diet and more of a way of life. The 'diet' is in three phases - the first being the most difficult and lasting two weeks - eating only lean...

    I'm trying to continue with my diet that I started back in January when I still lived in the UK and had access to my bathroom scales at home. Now I'm in Australia, my scales are in transit, I don't want to buy another set, but dieting without them is rather hard, actually it's hell. I can't...

    Diet Soda

    For years I was so hooked on Diet Mountain Dew. I was under the impression that it was perfectly fine for a diabetic like me to drink all the diet soda I wanted. I learned that the artificial sweeteners in diet soda actually cause you to crave the soda more so you end up drinking a lot more than...

    Low Carb Diet

    I really shouldn't call it a "diet." It's more like a new style of eating for me. I have been reducing the amount of carbs, especially sugars, in my eating plan. I still eat good carbs (fiber), and I have upped my protein intake. I feel fuller longer, I never feel like I'm starving or...
