Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Learn How to Cook Low Cal!

Eventually you will need to learn how to cook low calorie meals, even if you are currently on a prepackaged diet. You can’t eat prepackaged food forever! When I first started cooking low calorie I would use my current recipes but make substitutions that would lower the calories (i.e. Use PAM instead of regular cooking oil or use equal instead of sugar or volumize by adding lots of steamed vegetables to the meal I was cooking). 

Eventually I wanted to increase my repertoire of healthy recipes so I began to search for recipes on the web that were already healthy and did not need modifying. Below are the URL's for some of my favorite low calorie recipe sites.
