I have decided to do what always worked for me in the past. I'm using the Carbohydrate Addicts Diet... CAD. It fits my lifestyle and while I don't really have to I am counting the calories with it so I know how much I'm eating. I'm also setting a goal. I would like to go to TX to visit family sometime next year and would like to weigh a lot less and be healthier... able to get around better. So I'm setting that as my goal.

B - 1 c coffee w/Stevia and H & H

RM - 2 c salad w/1T Ranch Drsg., 2 home fried chicken legs, 1/2 c beets, 8 oz FF milk and 1/2 grapefruit

CM - Tuna salad

CM snack - 1 Atkins shake

965 calories today... I'm sure it will be more on other days so not worrying about it being so low.

For those of you enjoying your spaghetti squash, here is a recipe I got from a cookbook but haven't tried yet. Sounds good, and you could probably use turkey bacon and low fat cheese.

Spaghetti Squash Cheese Bake

1 small to med spaghetti squash
2 slices bacon
8 oz cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Place skin side up in a baking dish and add about 1 inch of water. Bake until the skin begins to give, about 40 min. Carefully pour out the water. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a large skillet over medium heat, fry the bacon until crisp, turning several times 8 to 10 min. Drain on paper towel. Crumble

Using a large fork, scoop the squash out of its skin, pulling it into long strands. Place in a large mixing bowl. Combine with the bacon, cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

Return the mixture to the baking dish and bake until the cheese melts. about 5 min.

Serve hot.
