my sister lost 93 pounds walking 10,000 steps a day.
may be a little extra work but i make hubbys food then i make my food.
find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.
i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .
i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.
it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.
i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.
you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.
I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.
one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth
i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.
How do you feel about oatmeal? It made a big difference with my cholesterol. I did get burned out on it but I was eating it by itself. Oatmeal is versatile enough to where you could 'hide' the plain version in just about anything and not know it was there.
Everything we do in life is a choice...I choose to get fit & healthy.

Cheese is overused when people aren't familiar with a vegetarian diet. Have you searched online for vegetarian cookbooks? That's a better way to start because they don't concentrate on substituting cheese for protein all the time.
