For breakfast I eat yogurt, a piece of fruit, and an english muffin with peanut butter. Lunch is usually a wrap of some sort (tofu or salmon with lots of veggies), some crackers and a piece of fruit. For dinner we usually have pasta with veggies, fish and quinoa and veggies, tofu stirfry, etc. I get good ideas on Cooking Light’s website. You may want to try using a slow cooker too so you can prep the night before and just turn it on in the morning and have dinner waiting for you! Cut out the fast food ASAP!!!

Veggies and hummus, multigrain cheerios, greek yogurt, celery with peanut butter, an apple or banana for snack, having dinner as the lightest meal and at least 2 hours before you sleep, lots and lots of water/tea makes you feel full!

I have a really crazy work schedule and have to eat on the go or scarf food in between appointments.  Annnd I don’t like to spend a lot of money on food.  I do lots of yogurt, fruit, instant oatmeal, carrots with hummus, protein bars, healthy wraps using tortillas with lean meat and lots of spinach, and leftovers from any meals we do have time to make.  You can do it! Just plan a little ahead of time.

And, like runnerbride13 said, get a crockpot if you don’t already have one.  Throw some rice, salsa, chicken, black beans and seasonings in there in the morning on low, and by the time you get home you have a full meal.

 

Oh and hello date twin!!

I am a big fan of the frozen steamer vegetables, but I don’t know what the nutritional information is other than calories, so I just keep track of them that way. I buy the store brand of the veggies I like, mostly the green beans, and have servings of chicken cut up in the fridge to throw on the George Foreman. That meal is usually my supper and around 150 calories. If I don’t eat chicken, I eat fish – mainly swai. It tastes the same as tilapia to me but is 68 calories per serving compared to 150 for the tilapia. Yes, it’s pre frozen, but honestly, I feel that there are worse foods out there, so I stick with it.

And definitely check out the Cooking Light website as another bee mentioned, it’s a great resource!

@thisorderistall:  How fun! Where did you live? I am in SW Missouri now, though I grew up in St. Louis.

I did 2 months of Nutrisystem – not full out, just paid for the food – in October and November and STILL have the food. You can do ala carte meals. So I do like a partial Nutrisystem and partial 17 Day Diet partial whatever I want to eat in moderation diet and I am down 15 lbs so far.

It’s perfect because on my on-the-go days, I can just grab nutrisystem and eat that, but then I can eat 17 day diet food when I have the motivation/time and whatever I want when I don’t.

I use my fitness pal to make sure I’m under a certain amount of calories every day no matter what. Facing the facts of WHAT you are putting in your mouth is a key part of weight loss!
