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.

Just Might be the Lowest Calorie Store Bought Marinara Around!
I have been looking for a low cal marinara to use with my Shirataki noodles and in recipes that call for marinara. The lowest I was able to find in local supermarkets (various brands) was 70 calories for 1/2 a cup. That was until I visited Trader Joe's and found their Organic Marinara Sauce. It taste amazing: it has chopped tomatoes, parmesan cheese, garlic, basil, oregano and onions in it! It is lowfat (2g of fat ) and has only 50 calories for 1/2 a cup! So if you haven't tasted Trader Joe's Organic Marinara stop by the store a buy a bottle!
