I have found that I am not good at it. I can maintain on a mixed diet but can't lose weight so have to resort to a little more extreme method to lose.
I gave the wrong idea about how I'm eating. I was just throwing stuff out for ideas in a restaurant, not how to eat all of the time. My food is very tasty. For example, one of my favorite current meals is to take rice, diced chicken breast, and peas and sprinkle with Golden Mountain sauce and a little fish sauce. It's quick and easy and tastes like something from a Thai restaurant. There are also a ton of things you can do with rice, potatoes, chicken/shrimp and curry powders. It's definitely not boring.
I realize that but obviously I want to keep an eye on my nutrients as well.
I'm not very good at portion control either. I grew up in a clean your plate household and restaurant portions are never really what I should be eating for a meal.
I'll need to find some better recipes for when I am home though.
