Dieting again: the aftermath of holidays

Every time I go out, I come back with some extra kilos. I love to cook (and to eat) and holidays are special times to show my abilities or taste my relations or friends´ cooking. Yesterday my aunt bid me goodbye with a wonderful corn pie. It is similar to a shepherd´s pie but instead of mashed potatoes it has a corn paste with a bit of basil. She gave me a generous helping and then insisted on seconds. What could I say? Today I checked my freezer and I´ll have a homemade burger for lunch. The kale is big enough to collect some leaves, so I will boil some leaves to go with it. Leticia welcomed me with some delicious fried pastries, but today Leticia doesn´t come so I´ll give a great part of it to my youngest daughter who is coming this evening. And it goes without saying that I will not check my weight until next week. Pity, I will have to behave in Sunday as there is a barbecue at my daughter´s to celebrate her birthday and my eldest daughter´s birthday. Any sugestions about diets?

There is only a way to lose weight and it's eat a little less of everything, avoid sugar and fats. This works.

I have been thinking about eating a small amount of fats and carbs for a long time.

How do you cook your kale a have some for over the weekend, and I want it soft enough to chew but flavorful ?

I cook the kale in a small amount of water. The best part of my kale is that it is homegrown so I pick it when it is very tender.

Just water ? What about a chicken stock with rice or noodles added 1/2 way through the cooking ? @marguicha

Hi I added the beef stock instead and simmered with garlic and onions till tender then poured browned ground turkey and it was fantastic @marguicha

I've adopted the habit of eating what I like but smaller portions. This way I don't feel deprived, enjoy what I eat and the scale has been my friend
