I am following the calorie counter method of weight loss, tracking on fitday.com. So far I really really like this-- I even enjoy journaling (LOL now that is saying something, coming from a lifetime WW menber). It really helps me to see in black and white what food groups are coming up at what time of day (i.e. carbs, protein, etc) and how I can adjust things. whomever suggesting upping my proteins was right on-- I have done that, and will have a protein snack in the evening (lately it's been an apple & cheese) and I'm very satisfied.
I must say-- even though I'm not "into" cooking that much, I will say I had an awesome dinner tonight (LOL made by ME!)
marinated boneless pork chops on the george foreman grill
whole wheat couscous
asparagus (total yum!! it was $1.99 at the grocery today, OMG!)
and spinach salad with strawberries, mandarin oranges, a few sunflower seeds, reduced fat feta and a piece of red onion. with poppy seed dressing.
Seriously, even my 10 year old daughter loved it!
I also whipped up a batch of hummus (for any of you who love it but buy it-- it is soo easy to make!!), and a "chocolate raspberry tartlet" from the biggest loser cookbook -- (4 servings) - take 1/2 c. of grapenuts with 2T + 2t allfruit raspberry (or orange marmalde) -- whirl that together for a crust, and then make up a box of SF/FF instant chocolate pudding!~
Yay me! I'm really proud of myself.
