Eat frequently and don't get hungry!

Eating a small snack or meal every two to three hours helps me feel full on a low calorie diet (@1200 kcal). Every snack and meal includes protein. This works for me, and I have dropped 13 pounds in five weeks.

Wheat and Gluten Free Eating

I removed wheat from my diet two weeks ago and am eating very low carb, checking all foods on the Glycemic Index before they are allowed in my menu planning. I do not try to limit healthful fats such as olive oil, avocados, nuts, but I do keep my total calories under 1500, and under 400 per meal.

Fat Free vs Full Fat

Full fat wins! Natural fats from foraging, pastured, or wild animals and tropical oils (all non-hydrogenated) are the healthiest there is. It is what our bodies were designed to eat!

Best Bread to eat for weightloss

I'm a carbaholic and have recently switched from doing Atkins to a low-cal, low fat diet, but we still need to watch the carbs.
TWO pieces of Betty Light Whole Wheat Bread has:
Calories Fat Carbs Protein Sodium
90 1g 16g 5g 220mg

PLUS if you are carb counting, there are 5grams of fiber, so a total of 11g net carbs.

Enjoy!

Cut Your Pasta servings in HALF with NO ONE missing the extra calories!

Make your sauce CHUNKY with LOTS of veggies( tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, spinach, squash etc) It should be like a stew..Don't let it get "runny" . Boil 1oz whole grain pasta per person and when done- use kitchen shears to snip into small pieces. Mix into sauce and divide into servings. The veggies make up for the lower amount of pasta. And because it isn't a mound under the sauce- no one can gage how much( or little) pasta they actually have.!

Atkins

I've cut back and or eliminated bad carbs - sugar, grains, rice, potatoes. Increased good carbs - leafy green veggies, and some fruits.

Great dessert

For a sweet treat without all the remorse, take a handful of raw almonds and mix with 1/8 teaspoon sugar-free protein drink mix, put them in a covered container and shake. Really good, especially with chocolate-flavored drink mix.

Low carb pizza crust using cauliflower

This pizza crust uses cauliflower as the base ingredient, rather than flour. It is surprisingly good - definitely worth a try. Just make sure you really spray the pan before spreading the dough mixture!

Protein Shakes

I keep a few low-carb protein shakes on hand (15-20 g protein; no more than 150 calories) -- and the whey protein powder to mix in the blender (cheaper). I use these when I know I'm about to get hungry and have to grab something quick.
