I tried. I really, really tried to hang tight with the Biggest Loser home-delivery meal plan but they’ve forced my hand…or tummy…to look for another solution. Remember the vinegar-y taste I mentioned in a previous post? Well, it sent me over the edge…of the toilet.
Every time there was a vegetable in a meal it had a sour, vinegar-like taste. Now, I do like sour things like pickles – I loves me some pickles now! – but the constant repetition of that flavor would make me nauseous and I found myself avoiding the veggies. (Now thats one way to lose weight! Only eat half the meal…) One thing I noticed is they don’t include the ingredients on the package – isn’t that a law?
So it is here that the BLM and I part ways. After spending the better part of two days feeling sick to my stomach I backed off and ate regular food (portion-controlled of course) and felt better on the third day. It seems to me that if they could get rid of that weird taste that pervades their meals they could have a gold-mine on their hands. If the low-cal frozen food lines (Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine etc) can do it, then the BLM plan can to.
Life is too short for flat, tasteless, sour foods and there has to be a better way and I only have to find it.
Do you have a favorite low-cal recipe you’d like to share? Either post it here or email me directly and I’ll post it for you!
