Did you resolve to lose weight this year? Take a page out of Sara Rue’s food diary and watch the calories melt away!

Sara Rue has a new year’s resolution: she’s going to follow her diet! The new Jenny Craig spokesperson explains that the biggest problem with losing weight is actually making a commitment and sticking to a set diet. “I desperately want to stick to Jenny Craig, and I’ve been doing very well,” Sara tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. She adds, “You need to get into a committed state. You need to stay in that health and fitness groove.”

But staying in the groove doesn’t mean denying yourself. Admits the 30-year-old actress, “The thing I was missing most was being able to have a glass of wine with dinner. I figured I couldn’t drink, so why bother asking? But I finally told my consultant, ‘I really want a glass of wine!’ and she taught me how to manage my diet accordingly. Instead of having dessert I’ll have a glass of wine. Both have the same amount of calories and wine converts to sugar anyway, so I never feel deprived of not having what I want.” Laughs Sara, “It’s not like I drink every day, but when I want to have a glass of wine with my honey [fiancé Kevin Price] I can feel like I’m not cheating. It’s nice to know that every option is available as long as I know how to manage it.”

With the menu Sara is offering up – that shouldn’t be hard! And best yet – everything below maxes out at 1300 calories. Um, sign us up!

Breakfast

“Today I had Jenny Craig maple nut hot cereal – it’s oatmeal with nuts and grains and takes less than five minutes to make,” Sara says. “I added ¾ of a cup of mixed berries, but sometimes I’ll add a banana and sometimes I’ll sprinkle cinnamon on top for extra flavor.”

Snack

“I’ll have a Jenny Craig Anytime bar or a cup of cottage cheese with a cup of berries to tide me over until lunchtime.”

Lunch

“My favorite Jenny Craig meal is the enchiladas. It takes four minutes to microwave, so while that’s’ happening I’ll chop up a ton of romaine lettuce and add two tablespoons of salsa as a kind of salad dressing. Then I’ll chop up the enchiladas – the rice, cheese and beans – and toss in with the lettuce, which makes a great warm taco salad.”

Snack

“I’ll have a piece of fruit, like an apple.”

Dinner

“I’ll have one of the JC dinners – I’ve been eating a lot of macaroni and cheese lately. I know it doesn’t sound super healthy, but they make it with low-fat cheese and lots of whole grains and steamed asparagus.”

Dessert

“I usually have the cheesecake or popcorn.”
