Thanks and sure but this may take me a while LOL ..... So I think most of my weight loss or at least some of it had to do with the fact that I stopped drinking pop, I used to drink 2 cans of pepsi a day, pasta...and basically I would skip breakfast like most people do and eat large quantities of non nutritional foods!
So here are examples of what I eat (I will give several examples for each meal time) :
Lots of water, 4-5 591 ml bottles a day
Breakfast: -almond butter with ezekiel toast
-oatmeal (non sugary packaged stuff)
**sometimes I will change it up, you have to or else you will get bored. So I will have a slice of ezekiel toast with one egg etc...***
Snack: -1 cup of berries
Lunch: -Tuna sandwich, low fat mayonnaise, ezekiel bread
-2 oz of chicken (skinless, boneless) in multi grain moon wrap
-Salad with 2 oz. of chicken, just a glaze of italian dressing or
** I try to incorporate lots of lettuce in with my sandwiches etc..***
Snack: -Large salad with cucumbers, glaze of dressing * as mentioned above
-2 tblsp Hummus with multigrain crackers
-120 gr of crab meat
-Small serving Greek Yogurt (I refrain from overly sugary yogurts)
-22 gr of mixed nuts (almonds, pecans, hazelnuts)
-Carrots or celery
-Large spinach salad
Dinner: ***Always consist of 3-4 oz. of meat, 1/2 cup of grain, 2-3 cups of veggies, depending on the veggie***
-Pork, hamburger, chicken, fish..**all meats are lean**
-Quiona, bulgur wheat, brown rice, sweet potatoes
-Asparagus, broccoli, frozen kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, spagetti
Half my plate is all veggies, and the other "quarter's" are the meat and grain.
I think I covered it all. I dont really eat spaghetti anymore because there is no point! 8 points for 1/4 cup of pasta! Really not worth it! I drink lots of water, and decaffeinated green tea. My sugar intake has been cut back way more than half. I only have about 3 tblsp of sugar a day! Which I find is alot but its hard to completely give it up!
All I can really say is that its all about portions, as Im sure you guys already know!!!! Logically you can have 1 cup of rice if you wanted, but that is 2 extra points you can be dispersing elsewhere, like snacks during the day!
Im a little more strict on myself, I cut most of my carbs out, but not completely because that will just make you want to eat more of them. I will have spaghetti sometimes, very rare!!!
Hope I helped some of you with some insight and maybe you can share what your diet plan is like as well! For me and others
