Hi everyone,

Well I am doing pretty good. I am combining weight watchers with MUFA's. So far it is working for me. I usually count calories but I decided to give ww a try again. So Trish it seems we are following the same plan. I am also working on getting enough of fiber in my diet.

Looks like we all got a good start. I like your idea Bobbi of the snack of fiber one. Bev interesting we ended up doing the same. I see food in pts and it just makes it easier for me. I mark on foods that I can how many pts per serving so it kind of became a habit. m2nd2none I started using my measuring tape for those times my scales didn't move and I learned that even though the scale didn't move there was something going on because I would still lose inches.

I had the best breakfast. I call it Chocalate Walnut Oatmeal. I used 1 serving of oatmeal (I like old fashioned and make it in microwave using amount of water & timing for consistency I prefer). I added 1/2 T each of walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate morsels. Total 4 pts and delicious. MUFA breakfast. I had mine with WW Amaretto yogurt and a cup of coffee.

For dinner I had a eally good pizza made with 1 WW tortilla, 1/4 c pizza sauce, 1/3 c lowfat shredded mozzarella cheese topped with 8 large black olive slices (MUFA). 5 pts.

I read today on a newsletter I get by e-mail and they said that brown rice is the best way to build our bones ladies. So I am going to have to learn to eat at least 1/2 c a day. I thought that maybe on days when I don't plan a meal with it like today, I can make a 0 pt soup and add 1/2 c of the brown rice to it for a meal or snack.

Yum, chocolate Walnut oatmeal! Don't ya love the MUFA's on this plan. One of my favorite concoctions is a flatout toasted until crisp, topped with applesauce, splenda, cinnamon and walnuts.
We've been eating brown rice for years (unless we have Chinese take-out). I think white rice has no flavor compared to brown and that's good to know about our bones. At my age I just don't have the bone density that I had when younger.
I think we've lost quite a few FBD people, I think many are waiting to see what happens.

Bobbi, That flatout recipe sounds really good. I am going to have to try it. I am always looking for new things to eat. What is your favorite flavor flatout to eat? I have only had the original light ones.

I've never had a flatout. What is it and where do I find it? What part of the store? Recipe sounds good. I'd like to try it. I forgot to measure today, but was my WI. I ended up with a total 5.5 lb loss this week.

I buy my flat out bread at super walmart. I find mine either by the tortillas or by the deli. To me it looks like a weird shape tortilla. The are called flatout wraps.

How do I sign up for the online version? I went to the website (the one I found in google) but I don't see where you can sign up for anything online.

TIA

I use the original Light Flat outs the most. The Italian Flat outs make great pizza's. I have a countertop toaster oven that I toast the wraps in, then spread with pizza sauce, turkey pepperoni, cheese, then I pop them back in the oven to melt cheese. I love these! You can go to the Flat Out web site for lots of recipes and creative ideas for using them.

Greetings Everyone:

The scale is still moving very slow, but my body is really starting to shape up.

I love pizza made w/Flat Out. The Chocolate walnut oatmeal sounds wonderful. I will give that a try. My latest new food was a asian shrimp and spinach salad. I used sesame oil, rice wine vineger and ginger for the dressing.

Hey Bobbi and everyone else. I kind of went MIA for a few weeks. Work has been insanely busy!!!

I have been on Flat Belly Diet since Jan 21. I have lost 24.9 pounds. I plan on canceling my online subscription.

But actually I should say I am on Flat Belly Calorie Counting Superfoods Supervised by my Doctor and Dietician plan.

I am using the MUFA principal. I have been eating Superfoods everyday. I had metabolic testing and doctor determined I needed more than the 1600 calories a day that are on the Flat Belly Diet. He recomends 1800 to 1900 a day for me. My dietician also wants me to have more protien than FBD recommends. I track my calories on The Daily Plate. My dietician loves that it has Cal, carb, fat, protien, sodium and all the other stuff it tracks.

I have been exercising nearly every day. 60 minutes of cardio and 30-45 minutes of weight training. I love the way I feel!!! I have lost 7" inches off my waist and 4" off my "front butt"!!! I no longer huff and puff like the big bad wolf when I climb a flight of stairs!!! Best of all my blood pressure is in the "normal" range!!!

I am trying to lose 50% of my orginal body weight. I don't want to do surgery unless it is the ABSOLUTE last resort...and if this doesn't work then it WILL BE my last resort. I am doing it smart this time and trying to make changes that I can keep up for a lifetime!!!

Wink Flat belly diet questions

I have read about the diet and am curious how strict the 4 day jump start and then the diet is. Most diets I have tried all have things that I don't like - yogurt being one of the main ones. What kind of foods are on the diet? I want to know if I will find enough to eat to make it work.
Thanks
