Yes!!! I feel the same way. Who woulda thunk?!? Just last night I was telling my DH (as he was heating up canned chicken noodle soup for dinner) how he could have much better food that was low in calories and would taste much better than condensed soup! He is stuck in the rut of not wanting to count calories on a bunch of stuff. So, he goes with pre-packaged stuff like lean cuisines and what not cause he can easily see how many calories are in it. I'm working on him though. I was adding up calories for a yummy piece of chicken with some steamed/roasted veggies on the side....I think it really got him thinking as he was staring down into his bowl of plain, boring chicken noodle soup...ha ha
I eat WAY better than my DH!!! He doesn't want to hop on the SBD wagon with me quite yet..maybe soon though, once he really realizes how yummy my food is compared to his

I'm Italian, I love cooking and I love food. I love this plan. I know it's not for everyone but it is perfect for me. Once you learn how to adapt recipes the sky is the limit. the more creative you are the more great recipes you will find. And yes, I do love a plate full of food. I've done the deprivation diets and they just aren't for me.
It's great to hear from other people who love it too
Baby steps, getting back on track 2015. Moving the next 10 lbs by the end of the summer.
Maintaining 48 lb loss since 2008, working off regain to a sensible maintenance level. 60 lbs and counting!
Cyndi I so love to cook too! I can't imagine anyone choosing a lean cuisine over a fresh cooked delicious meal. My DH will eat anything, so I guess I'm lucky.
@ Boriqua the milkshake recipe sounds strange, but trust me it is soooo good!
1 cup milk (I used Almond Breeze)
1/2 teaspoon crystal light powder(trust me! i had fruit punch)
1 cup of ice
Sweetner of your choice if needed
Blend until thick and frothy.
I too thought it sounded strange but I really enjoyed it!
There are also plenty of shake recipes in the recipe forum. Many of them call for Ricotta, I'm not much of a Ricotta fan though.
