I think it’s just a matter of consistency. You have to stay the course with cutting calories and eating the right things, even if it seems like that’s what you have been doing with no results. Believe me, eating that way is preparing your body for losing weight even if you can’t see it now.
Yes it is really difficult sometimes. I am losing steady right now but I went a long time when I did not lose anything. I just stuck with my plan and didn’t stop. Even when the scale didn’t move, I still hung in there. I presume you are getting plenty of cardio and drinking at least eight glasses of water everyday. Getting plenty of water and exercise is crucial to your losing weight.
You asked about menus? Here is today’s menu for me and it fairly typical. I drink water all day long. The veggies, the fruit and the grain changes from one day to the next, but this is a good sample of how I eat everyday:
Breakfast: Oatmeal, orange slices, serving of steamed cabbage, cup of hot tea
Mid Morning Snack: slice of bread with some peanut butter
Lunch: Tofurky sandwich on whole wheat bread w/ mustard and some lettuce, tomato, and slice of onion, bean salad
Mid afternoon snack: apple sauce, handful of raisins and mixed nuts.
Dinner: Salad, mixed vegetables, Boca burger patty and brown rice
Evening Snack: serving of dried cranberries and applesauce.
