A question to all you ladies who are eating oatmeal or hot cereal for breakfast, how much of it do you eat? I'm thinking about adding this into my plan but it's so calorie dense I don't want to end up eating too much and stalling my weight loss. Do you think 1 cup oatmeal with 1/2 cup 2% milk is reasonable?

Today:
B - blueberries and lf cott cs, coffee with 2% milk
L - chef salad with 2 hard boiled eggs and sliced ham
S - sugar free latte w/ skim milk
D - Salmon tacos! YUM :)

wish - I use one half cup of oatmeal, one cup of water and five minutes in the microwave. I then top it with Spenda, cinnamon and fruit and that keeps me until my morning snack.

Could some one tell me what are shirataki noodles??? Are they low carb? What section of the grocery store would they be?
Thank you,
JoAnn in TEXAS

Joanna - shirataki noodles are made from tofu and soybean. A 4oz serving has 3g. of carbs, no fat, no sugar and 20 cals. according to my package. They are packed in water and I simply rinse them in hot water. They are very bland and need doctoring up to eat. I get them at an asian store but perhaps someone else can tell you where to get them in the states.

Supper tonight is a white egg omlette (had to use up egg whites left over from baking) with lots of vegetables and grated cheese. Will have a glass of wine while watching Slumdog Millionaire.

B: Leftover black beans, 1 egg, lf cheddar
S- Apple
L- Greek salad with grilled shrimp
S- Coffee
D- Salad, shrimp fra diavalo with WW pasta
S- Strawberry smoothie

So DBF and I are friday night regulars, along with some friends, at a great little italian place by our apartment. I've been passing on going there since starting SBD, but BF still sometimes goes with friends. Well, the waitress took notice, and asked where I was. When BF mentioned I was avoiding due to SB, she personally told the chef that they needed to start stocking WW pasta... and they have!!! I love little neighborhood places where they'll do that for you. There portions are so huge that I can only eat about a quarter of the pasta on my plate, but that's fine... BF benefits from the leftovers :)

liemypoo - forgive the question if I missed an earlier explanation, but are you following South Beach? I'm curious because I didn't notice any beans or dairy and not a lot of veggies in your menus. I have missed a few days though, so might have missed this already.

S - hummus & Greek yogurt (makes the hummus go further), sugar snap peas & baby carrots
L - veggie & bean cassoulet with veggie grnd chicken
