    My dear sweet wife is helping me diet. I was 218 lbs around Christmas, and today, I'm 200.5 lbs.! We're eating stir-fried veggies, more chicken and fish, and less beef, and pratically no pork. It's been hard, but the gradual weight loss has been my encouragement to stick to the diet. I have basically cut out ice cream and cookies.....my big weakness. Now my goal is around 185 lbs. .

    Mayonaise: My wife just picked up some low fat mayonaise, and this is really making it tough with my sandwiches. Regular mayonaise was my little treat in a sandwich.

    Question: Why can't they make low fat stuff taste like it's rich with fat, just so a guy/gal can have a little fun!

    This low fat mayonaise doesn't even spread like the regular stuff.

    What's a guy to do? :bangheads

    I was losing weight on the regular mayonaise. I'm 57 years old, a little under 6'1", and have a medium frame.

    Hey, they sent people to the moon over 30 years ago.

    Can't they make low fat stuff taste like it's got fat in it??? :bangheads :bangheads :bangheads

    You get used to it, then regular stuff tastes weird when it is served to you.

    I don't think I'd want to get used to it.

    That's like someone trying to teach you another way to fart...

    I use lowfat Best Foods mayo. Love it. Funny thing is, I recently tried the regular and found it too oily. You can buy a little jar to test.

    Good luck.

    Use Miracle Whip, it tastes better then Mayonnaise and has about a third the fat. Don't get the fat-free Miracle Whip though, it ain't all that bad but it isn't the real deal.

    Hey, you all give me hope.

    So if I can just get used to it.......I'll like it?

    So if the common good is greater than the common bad, I'll learn to appreciate it? ;)
