Boredom is a real pitfall for me. Good article for me.
Thank you! Great advice!
OME on Sparks! This article is 15 YEARS OLD.
Thanks, great article!
Good advice! Thanks
Good to know how to handle being bored.
I ,usually have a protein shake every morning with berries,mixed greens and Chia seeds.
I'm much happier eating 100-200 calories every 2 hours, with a larger dinner, than 3 meals a day. It works for me.
I much prefer a work environment where I can choose how to do my job, including eating at my workspace, than being micro-managed, You must eat now in the breakroom, how ridiculous.
I am actually fairly happy about eating the same food every day. Takes the guesswork out of it.
Some great points in this article. I question the suggestion about smaller meals, 5-6 per day. A recent study has shown that subjects eating multiple, smaller meals have no greater success in losing weight than those eating three full size meals. I hope sparkpeople continues to base their content on proven or widely accepted research and steers clear of taking sides on debatable subjects.
Like Jshare this came at a good time for me. I have lost 28 kilos and have 2 more to lose to reach my goal. I am finding it a real struggle to shift the last of the weight and really feel like I have been doing this diet forever. I am following the Dukan plan which is very restrictive. I think it's time for a change whilst not returning to my old eating habits.
Articles like this help keep me focused on the lifestyle issue, not the diet route. Thanks Liz!!!
