I'm currently on a low fat diet

I have a site on this, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post it :S (it is a record of EVERYTHING that I have eaten, and done for exercise since I started it last tuesday - including my whopping 101 grams of fat intake last monday - eating what I thought was moderate meals)

I started off at 235 lbs this weekend. With plenty of exercise and sticking to a low fat diet (no cheating!) it is now Thursday and I'm 232!! (awesome :D)

[B]Breakfast[/B]: Bowl of fruit

[B]Lunch[/B]: 1 peanut butter sandwich (1 tbsp pb) and Grape jam on whole wheat (Sobey's High Fibre/Low fat - tastes GREAT!!) - 1 "Cup-a-Soup": (Lipton, beef noodle) - 18 baked corn chips with salsa - 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese

[B]Dinner[/B]: 1 chicken breast - 2 skewers of shrimp (both grilled on bbq) - 1/2 cup cottage cheese & small salad with 1/2calorie dressing (1 tbsp French Kraft Dressing)

Believe it or not, your body burns between 30 - 40 grams of fat naturally during the day (with moderate exercise - walking...)

My entire daily fat intake was less that 15 grams of fat.

It seems like a LOT of food, it's high in protein and low in fat. If you feel you're hungry in between, munch on some fruit and drink PLENTY of water. (I drink 2000ml a day - 8 cups).

[B]It took about 2 weeks for my body to get used to this diet...[/B] If you feel EXTREMELY hungry, try drinking tea sweetened with honey, nibble on fruit. Your body is going to HATE you for the first week. If you STILL don't like the feeling: Start with 30 grams of fat a day and work your way down.

When I first started I was eating ALL DAY LONG... tons of fruit/veggies.

(sorry if I've posted this in a few threads, I just figured it was worthy of a new thread by itself... might be able to inspire some ppl)

[B]Is exercise your enemy? [/B] Start walking around the block after dinner? Even just that much can help. Once you're used to the one block... go two. :D

My entire family is now taking part with me. :D

[B]Watch for those Fatty culprits!![/B] Like those little "low in fat" snacks, condements, treats... [B]
(e.g.) [/B] Read the Nutritional label! Just because it says low in fat doesn't mean you can gobble down a whole bag of Crispy Mini's... an entire bag contains approximagely 10 grams of fat!! The Nutritional value says that for 8 chips, you're getting 1.5 grams of fat. Eat 8 chips... if you're still hungry go hunt down some fruit/veggies.

Treats are a treat for a reason... they're to reward yourself for doign well, not to consume as a meal. :D

Low Fat Mayonaise (Hellmans). Just because it's low fat doesn't mean it's not going to hurt you if you GLOB it onto your sandwiches... 1 tbsp of Low Fat Hellmans Mayonaise is 5.1 grams of fat. :D Like Mayo with your Chicken; don't want the fat but all the taste? Try Salsa!You could eat an entire jar of salsa and not gain weight!

Fish: Fish fats are hard to count, because this kind of fat is actually good for you. Stick with 1 fillet.. add some grilled or boiled shrimp (fat free... GRILLED not fried)

[B]Substitute Fried foods for grilled[/B]. Grilled Chicken breast is excellent! Don't have a bbq? Try saving up for a George Forman grill, I even have a George Forman Rotissary! (Can be any kind of grill that will allow the fat to drip out when cooking). Grilled fish is good, Grilled shrimp is AWESOME!

[B]BBQ'ed Garlic and Herb Shrimp [/B] ... peel 1 lb of raw shrimp. Rinse it out in cold water and blot dry with paper towel. Now put it into a sealable dish, add 1 tbsp olive oil, and sprinkle some garlic and herb seasoning on it... seal and shake. Let it sit covered for 30minutes to an hour on the counter... if longer than keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. Put them on skewers *soak wooden skewers for at least 30 min prior* and bbq). NO FAT!!! NONE! you can eat as much of this as you like!! Olive oil has GOOD fat. :D
