So do you eat egg salad for lunch? What about breakfast? Where did you buy carbsmart fudge bars?  

Hi! I'm finding I have a basic successful menu of what I can eat & still lose. I stick to it nearly everyday.

2 or 3 eggs made into egg salad
2 carbsmart fudge bars
Chicken or steak with steamed mixed veggies

What is your super basic menu that works for daily [url=][url=]weight loss[/url][/url]??? :-)

OHHHHH!!!! Yay! So how do I get it free - do I ask Doug or what?

Not yet....I plan to buy one soon. 

Emmitt do you have the Fat to Skinny Bakery book? You can get one free with 50 posts. ;)

Hi Audra! :)

I'm not sure you understood Umpa... You can get one FREE for the asking with 50 posts.
Since you have 70 right now, you've got more than enough.

Of course, you may purchase one if that's your desire.

General Discussion / Applebee resturant
« on: August 28, 2012, 08:56:09 PM »
Tonight, I went to Applebee resturant.  I ordered 9 oz of sirloin steak and shrimp - parmesean cheese on it.  I asked the waitress how many carb was the parmesen cheese.  She was kind enough to ask her manager and showed me the paper that had list of labels.  It was only 4 gram.  I requested her to removed mashed potatoe or baked potatoe - substitue with salad.  She was happy to do it.  The salad was like one cup size.  I didn't eat the whole steak - I cut in half.  And also I requested for broccoli.  I ate broccoli like 1/2 cup size.  I brought my own salad dressing with me for salad.  I have some left over.  The dinner was great!  ;D

Hope that I [url=]lose weight[/url] tmw - wait and see.

Tell me what do you think??  I experiment myself and thought it's pretty good - not so bad. 

Chocolate Dip:

Splenda - 2 carb - 1/2 tsp
Virgin Coconut Oil - 0 carb - 1 Tbsp
Almond Butter - 3 carb - 2 Tbsp
Baker's Unsweetened Baking Choc Squares- 2 carb - 1 square

I dip it with strawberry (only ate three strawberries with choc dip)

That's awesome! I will certainly try Jennie-O turkey sausages - hopefully they have it at Walmart.  I hate to keep shopping around.  lol 

I love the turkey burgers, I also eat a lot of the hot Jennie-O turkey sausages. What I love about the turkey is it takes the flavors from what you cook it with. My husband cooks them then sautes onions and peppers with them and we scoop it all up into a low carb pita. Four carbs for the whole meal and it is AMAZING!

I have a question for you Doug.

The first ingredient is listed first because it has the highest amount and it get lower from left to right. It's not OK to eat a lot of tic tacs because sugar is listed first but it's OK to eat a lot of turkey burger because sugar is listed almost last, right?

I bought Jennie-O Turkey Burgers before I joine this program.  The other day, I was reading the label.  It says 0 Carb - serving size is 1 burger.  It has 4 oz.  Anyway, I ate cheese turkey burger and hard boiled egg for lunch without bread or anything else.  It was good!  Has anyone tried these?  Btw, I bought it at Walmart. :D

Good one Owensmath!  I will try that! :D

I took my kids through the drive through at BK the other morning. I ordered a sausage, egg, and cheese croissant AND a fork and knife. They thought I was nuts, but I didn't care. I threw away the bread and ate the sausage, egg, and cheese with the knife and fork! : )

I thought we had to give up on all resturants.  Now, I feel better that I can go out to eat. lol  Thanks Doug!! :D

I hear it all the food is making this country FAT....not so my friends. french fries, sesame seed buns, ketchup, apple pies and full sugar soda from fast food joints.....Ah...that's what's making us FAT. But can you still eat at your favorite fast food place. You bet! When I'm on the road and need a quick meal it's as simple as 1 2 3

1- Buy a whopper or double whopper without Ketchup and a side salad from Burger King. Ask for Ranch dressing

2- Remove the bread and place all the meat and veggies on the salad, top with ranch dressing

3- Enjoy your meal  ;)

General Discussion / I overcame temptation!
« on: August 25, 2012, 04:41:26 PM »
Today, I've been working all day from 9am to 3:30pm.  I usually work all day on Saturdays which is hard because of late lunch.  Anyway, I ate breakfast before I went to work.  I brought snack with me during lunch time - very light snack.  So in between those hours (my free time) I went to flea market and bought broccoli and I was drooling over concord grapes which is my f a v o r i t e!  I couldn't resist to buy it.  I hope concord grape is allowed to eat???? 

Anyway....I'm proud of me is that I was so tempting to stop by at subway to eat because I was so exhausted and wasn't in the mood to cook at home.  The more I thought about it....I thought....whether I'm tired, I am going home and make me chicken salad!!!!!  Glad that I overcame the temptation!  ;D ;D ;D
