awesome, glad to hear it!
1 scoop of protein shake
1 cup of skim milk
2 small apricots
all good except I would recommend cutting out the milk. Try soy, almond or rice milk. Almond is sweeter - but get the plain with less sugar or none if you can.
Small chicken breast
2 Rice Cakes
again good except more dairy and rice cakes really don't give you any value except fill you up - they have no nutritive value. Think in terms of quality in = energy and fat burning out. go for a higher quality snack that has fibre and more nutrients. Check the recipes section for snack ideas.viewtopic.php?f=17&t=90
Tall Latte made with Non Fat Milk
the hamburder is not so bad it's what you put on it. was there cheese and mayo? instead choose a light ketchup, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles - NO butter, NO white bun. if the bread is white - just eat the meat patty no bun. veggies - with what on them? skip the butter. Yes latte - ask for soy milk or none - or better yet skip the coffee.
Natchos and Salsa.
get the baked nachos not fried, watch for saturated fats in them. watch for salt in the salsa - see my recipe here viewtopic.php?f=17&t=87
Ok, let's look at it. I will try to cut out milk. It's hard! I love milk, cheese and feta! Dinner was out of control, its what they were serving. The hamburger was 350 calories! I didn't have Ice Cream after dinner . That is my last coffee. Today it is herbal tea. Natchos and Salsa. I crave crunch! What time should I stop eating? Can I eat something else besides natcho chips to go with salsa? Yes, baby steps....
okay how to get rid of dairy - think about long term goals. Yes you love the milk, cheese, etc when you are eating it - but do you love what they do to and in your body? Would you prefer less mucus in your body? That's what they do - big time! would you prefer less acid, less toxins that are stored in FAT? that's also what they do. Do you like the hormones, antibiotics and steroids in dairy and what they do in your body? I choose not to even look at milk without it turning my stomach now. I see the fat swimming in it - even in skim (skim is still 30% fat you realize? and not good fat either)
if you want crunch - get some almonds and carrots and celery. stop eating 3 hours before bed time.
to go with salsa? whole wheat pita chips. ryvita crackers. dig veggies in it.
