Munchy - I see your predicament, Have you seen a doctor? Not losing while you are eating that low amount of calories is just not right. Are you exercising? I retired from the US Navy and for a while was enrolled in the VA weight loss program. They called it the MOVE program. Basic idea was to eat less and move more. You can't eat less and before you start any exercise program that you are not already doing I would see a doctor.

I am continually experimenting with Volumetrics. This evening I took 6 oz of Dreamfields Elbow pasta and added a can of Del Monte no salt added Stewed Tomatoes, a can of Giorgio no salt added mushrooms, 4 fresh jalapeno peppers chopped, Alsosalt salt substitute and pepper - a 2 cup serving was 247 calories. It tasted good but can be improved, next time I will add garlic powder, oregano and Italian seasonings. It was quite spicy as I do not remove the seeds from the jalapeno peppers and I do not cook them as I like the crunch. (I use Dreamfields pasta because it only has 5g digestible carbs per serving)
