Every time I read about food, I find another thing I

shouldn't be eating.

Isn't it beholden upon the FDA and Canada's equivalent to publish a list of foods that are safe to eat? Granted it would probably be the size of a credit card, which would add to its convenience.

The other thing is: why, despite eating less, do I not lose weight. I know part of it is insufficient exercise, but you'd think that my hunger response would at least settle down a bit. It's very annoying.

It's not that difficult

if you eat the right stuff. Here's one day's fare for me taken from my meals log. Avoid all fat and most added sugar, syrups, softdrinks other than diet, etc. Eat things like dried beans you cooked, with cornbread or rice on the side but no added butter, use molly mcbutter or tomato sauce instead, or mix into the beans at eating time. There's over 10 different types of dried beans in grocery stores in one or two pound bags. Soak overnight and cook in crockpot the next day after changing water. Boil kidney beans 10 minutes before crockpot to reduce a toxin. Eggplants are very low calorie. Spray pan with PAM and dip slices of eggplant into whipped egg and fry. Minimal fat added and an egg is about 80 calories, which when boiled don't add fat. Hebrew National no fat hotdogs are only 45 calories each. Avoid mayonaisse, but use yellow mustard, honey dijon mustard (great on carrots!). Tomato sauce on green beans is flavorful and low cal. This should give you some ideas. Cornbread can be as simple as cup flour, cup corn meal, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt optional, 1-2 tbsp yogurt optional, water into batter, pour into two 8" round cake pans sprayed with PAM. Bake 35-40 minutes in 375 F. Each quarter is 115 calories. If cornbread slices dry out hard before eating, then let one soak in 1/4 cup of milk in bowl for 153 calorie snack, or use extra water from cooked beans to flavor and soften. Low fat yogurt can make a decent dip (add soy sauce, onion/garlic powder, black pepper, etc) for raw low cal veggies like baby carrots, celery, lettuce, broccoli. Dill pickles are a no calorie snack. You might still have cravings for certain foods, but it won't be because you are hungry. If you cut out all fatty foods (sour cream, cheeses, meat grease, chicken skins, potato chips in bag, fried stuff, etc) and keep sugar consumption to a minimum, you can't help but lose weight.
