My weight loss has slowed down, maybe too much salt or just portions or servings too big, I don't do too well measuring my portions. Got to do better!
Anyway, I thought I'd go back to the first menu plans I got off the Belly Fat Cure website about April 1, 2010. That's when we first started thinking about doing this diet/life-style.
It works IF we do it right.
Breakfast- 2-3 eggs any style with 1 slice of whole grain toast with a pat of butter or cream cheese. You may also have a cup of coffee with cream or half and half, but not milk.
Snack- 1/4 cup of walnuts
Lunch- Tuna or turkey with cheese and lettuce wrapped in a medium whole grain tortilla.
Drink either a large glass of water or unsweetened iced tea with lemon.
Snack- 1 serving of string cheese.
Dinner-Salad with baby spinach, grilled chicken, pepper, olive oil dressing with a side of either broccoli or zucchini, sauteed in butter and topped with melted mozzarella.
Drink a large glass of water.
Dessert- 2 squares of 85% dark chocolate
I have lost between 25-29 pounds (depends on who's scales I use, mine or my doctors), but at a stand still because I push the limits of what a serving is!! That's one of my biggest problems in dieting and always has been and always will be unless I change my wicked ways.
Someone asked me one time, just out of the blue....:
"What are you doing about your weight?"
I thought...how can you ask me that?
none of your business...kiss my butt..
but that has stuck in my head for 20 years, and here I am , still big, even bigger now than I was then when my friend ask me that question!!
WOW.. denial is a long long river.....
