Some of you have been asking what exactly I'm doing, and also for recipes. Since I'm sitting in the hospital with my hubby I don't have my recipes with me, but I can definitely share my weight loss plan.
I'm basically following Dr. Oz's Rule of 5 Foods to Avoid -- Sugar, Syrup (corn, high fructose corn, etc), no white/refined carbs, no trans fat, no saturated fat. I'm also eating lots of satiating foods - almonds, whole grains, tons of veggies. In addition to that I'm also "counting calories" so to speak, but not in a crazy obsessive way. :) I generally strive for between 1200-1400 calories a day.
I have a 200 calorie breakfast (my egg white wrap),
a 100-150 calorie snack (usually a fruit),
a 300-400 calorie dinner (usually my lentil soup),
another 100-150 calorie snack (usually Kashi Go Lean Crunch - high fiber, high protein), a 300-400 calorie dinner (usually a lean protein and a huge portion of veggies)
and finally I have a 100 calorie snack as long as it's not after 8pm.
I'll be posting my recipes soon. Most of them I've gotten from Nancy and I love them!!! :)
My secret weapon -- calorie free olive oil spray, fresh crushed/minced garlic and crushed red pepper flakes! They make any meal delicious! :)
