A friend of mine had gall bladder surgery this week. She has to go fat free for three months and then still may not be able to tolerate it well. That's got me to thinking about what it would mean to go fat free. No pat of butter on the toast. Trimming *all* excess fat from meats prior to cooking. No baked goodies. And the fat free stuff they have on the market? It's usually loaded with something else, more sugar, more additives, more something to get it to taste OK.
So far this week, I have thought more about low fat/fat free things to eat and came up with egg whites and cottage cheese- two protein power houses. I have been neglecting these for some reason. The egg whites primarily for the preparation, I think. But I got this handy dandy omelet maker thing from Dollar Tree and today I found the perfect amount of time for approximately 3 egg whites. Delicious with toast and fat free pepper jack cheese. *mmm*
I have also loaded up on the salads this week, too. I hope to have a great week. Last week was kind of meh with 1.8 lbs. To meet my 4 lb/week goal, I would need to lose 2.2 lbs. from last week. I think I have already surpassed that, but we shall see.
We're heading out tonight to get supplies for camping. Fun fun fun. Or something. We'll see after the fact. :D
