Whipped cream in a can is my diet secret

No I don't mean put the nozzle in the mouth and let er rip... but since you fish longer when you're not dead I thought this has a little to do with flyfishing and well here it is, my diet secret... the can of whipped cream.

Sounds crazy but while crafting my new dietary strategy I noticed that 2 tbsp of whipped cream is only like 15 calories and 1.5g carb. Huh? That's all I ever use anyway.

I put about half that onto a handful of fresh blueberries for dessert and it feels like I am breaking the rules while getting a high dose of antioxidants and have something so I don't miss the ice cream at all. Negligible carbs and calories and delicious!

When I drink a low carb (3g) high-protein diet shake for lunch a dollop makes that chalk-olate shake taste damn good - like dessert. Especially that last gulp. Total of less than 5g carb and as much protein as a steak. Less calories than I can burn in one stint on the rowing machine.

My point is that if you want to live long and fish long, you have to maintain health when you get over the hill. For me the hill was the mid-forties and I don't want to fall shy of my golden days on the flats - I earned it damn it!

The key is to defeat the mental desires that are the ruin of most diets, and sometimes they are not the intuitive ones - like a bit of whipped cream. Making the healthy foods seem like they are indulgent eliminates the mental deprivation thing that is the healthy lifestyles worst enemy.

It's about setting up a regimen of eating that creates a nutrient rich diet low in carbs, saturated fats and calories that will keep you alive long enough to reap what you have sown into an angling lifetime. It's a cruel fate we face - by the time we reach the venerable status of wise old timer our time is running out. Beat that rap!

I have found more foods than I can even cycle through my meal plan since I started this dietary quest. It's kind of like the flybox when you've had enough time to tie - it runneth over with varieties you might never even have time to fish.

Spend a little time tuning your eating habits - you'll be amazed at the results!

(remember only a dollop!!!!)
