    For my Wife......

    Although I already have a very strong opinion on this, I ask that you all please give your input.

    What do you think of "diet" dinners such as those found in the freezer section of your local grocery store? (y'know the ones...Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice, Lean Pockets...etc.)

    I think they are crap and I never touch them - but I didn't always think that.

    Something to consider...some people don't care if they are healthy or good for you. I have friends who live on these b/c they are super convenient and calorie controlled. All they care about is how much they weigh. Can you eat these breakfast, lunch and dinner and lose weight - yep. Should you? They don't even ask the question because they don't care.

    (not saying that's your wife - but this does exist especially with woment.)

    an extreme but true example - I had a friend in high school who "dieted" to lose weight on 4 Snickers a day. She did lose weight. that was her only concern - not health/body composition etc. just being smaller and candy got her there. sigh

    CRAP.



    For one thing, check the sodium content of one of those things.

    I'm sure she'll appreciate the compliment. No, seriously folks, my wife thinks that these types of dinners are just fine. I have argued and argued, and taken the checkbook away from her......Okay, I've just argued.
    I have tried and tried to stress the point that this sort of food is JUNK! But she is convinced that it is the way to go......"You'll see" she says, as if we're in a fitness race.....which she is going to lose, I'm afraid.

    Have your fitness race based on BF............

    Have you tried to find some things for her to read on diet and fitness? There is a lot more to being healthy than being slim.

    I tried to find some good articles for you but most of them were pretty weak. In a nutshell they said: Don't eat every night. Read the Nutrition Label (DUH), Watch the Sodium and add a serving of veg or fruit.

    Too bad, I can't believe I couldn't find one that absolutely gave them a thumbs down.
