What do you guys eat when to make yourself feel better when you don’t want all those calories? I’m really trying to lose weight and get back to the way I was before I gained the freshman 15 at uni. Is there anything special you guys eat or do everyday in your routine that helps you stay the right size? I’m hopelessly yearning for the waify figure I actually had back in high school and want it back! the curves are KILLING me!

Oatmeal is always a good option (not too tasty) and DONT skip breakfast.

When you get tired of that fruits (like blueberries) are great to snack on too.

Good luck! :)

I eat oatmeal and fruit every morning. hehe. and for lunch I usually have a veggie burger on a whole wheat bun, and for dinner something like baked chicken. I snack on low-calorie yogurt. But is there anything you can eat with lower calories that isn’t sweet? sometimes i get such a sugar rush from all the yogurt and fruit! hehe

Sounds like u got the right idea Reybeltane :) for me, my fav healthy snack is veggies and lowfat ranch dip or hummus. Just make sensible choices and limit dairy, meat and white flour products. Load up on legumes they’re high in protein and fibre and low in Cals. Also mushroom dishes make a yummy “meaty” main for meals.

Plain Yogurt with maybe some granola, applesauce, I just ate a pound of bing cherries… the other day a pint of blueberries. Oh and of course the best is sitting outside eating a ripe peach or watermelon…. yum.

hummus can be high in calories sometimes.

I’ve been very into learning what to eat the anthropological way. I don’t eat meat everyday, usually 2-3 times a week. I eat prunes instead of bananas. I eat a lot of soup, right now it’s all about cabbage soup. I try to think about how people would eat centuries ago. Mainly foods straight from the ground or easy to make, fruits veggie soup. Then very little of the food that would’ve been harder to find/make, meat, pasta, and bread. If you think about it that way it keeps you from eating all the processed food that have too many ingredients.

My boyfriend and I joke that we try to eat like the dark ages.

Try 0% fat greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt and make sure you actually eat raw veggies and fruit. Be sure to get fiber into your diet and DO NOT try a liquid diet. It’s one of the worst things you can do to your body. Your body needs carbs and protein too. If you’re going for the meat-free diet, then look at Morningstar Farm’s “chicken” patties. They’re meat-free and delicious!

nuts, carrots, vegetables, vegetables, vegetables!
eat so much fruit and veggies you can’t handle it anymore because your body flushes it right out and makes me feel more energetic
eat some meat and protein – you need to nourish yourself
drink a LOT of tea. no sugar!

Go to a nutritionist (sp?) they give you a list with all the things you should eat and recipes if you want a healthy diet ;)

Snacking on raw almonds and fruit with nonfat cottage cheese always makes me full. Homemade protein shakes with whey protein powder, nonfat milk, ice, and half a banana make a great snack for in between meals. My new favorite healthy habit is eating carrots, celery, and apples with sunflower seed butter (fewer calories than any nut butter)!

fruits have a lot of sugar and too much of it will not result in weight loss.

my advice is to eat a boiled egg (without the yolk) and a banana for breakfast every morning. take in more lean protein and do strength training with 5-7 lbs weights. really tones you up.

LOTS of fruit (especially grapefruit which is my fav.) Also if I am trying to eat healthy I will try to snack on almonds or cashews instead of less healthy options.

Wow! I am a Dietician and I’m so proud of you guys! Fruit, veggies, nuts, yoghurt, granola, oatmeal! These are all great foods to eat instead of junk! They fill you up and provide many other benefits too!
Kudos to the ones you said greek yoghurt! Low-fat or no-fat yoghurt is packed with sugar, you’ll stay fuller for longer with a higher fat content (and you won’t need to eat as much of it!)

Breakfast is key, it revs up your metabolism for the day. Contrary to myth, snacking before bed isn’t bad! It just depends. If it’s putting you over your calorie needs for the day, that’s not so great. I like to have some cottage cheese and apple slices before bed. Helps my muscles heal from that day’s workout.

Keep it up! :)

Boil up a giant pot of fat-free veggie/cabbage soup and have a bowl before every meal (i guess except breakfast….that just sounds gross). It has minimal calories and tons of fiber so you’re gonna end up taking in less fat, carbs, and calories overall. Just don’t go on the cabbage soup diet cuz its a fad that will make you fatter in the long run.

I went on a 7-day detox diet lately and it gave me the best and most dramatic results out of all the diet regimens I have tried, so far. I lost a total of 5 kilograms in a week with the detox diet! But the regime is very intense and it is not recommended if your schedule is a bit hectic and you are always on the go.

On the other hand, it is best to eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and ots of fresh fruits (except for banana since it is very starchy). Have a glass of freshly squeezed grapejuice in the morning and in the evening. Taking green tea at least 2 or 3 times a day helps your digestion, too. And I recommend taking a bag of herbal laxative tea once in the morning and in the evening but stay hydrated with water, and lots of it.

I also substituted honey and sugar with maple syrup (grade B) and molasses. I only consume fish, chicken, egg and tofu for my protein needs. And I make sure that my plate consists of 10% meat, 60% vegetables and 30% sliced raw fruits, and 2 pieces of wheat bread (or one baked potato). Make it a rule to yourself not to have seconds. Drink at least 2 glasses of water before eating and then a glass after.

I have stayed very far away from junk food but I try to indulge on my favorite treats at least once a week. I am still working on eliminating coffee from my daily liquids (8 cups a day reduced to 2 cups is acceptable, no?)

Excluding the detox diet I had, I lost over 15 kilograms in a span of 4 months after deciding to stick with these diet modifications.

Stay motivated and keep yourself disciplined. I am still a few kgs away from my target weight but I am proud of how much weight I have lost and how healthy, strong and refreshed I feel at the moment.

Good luck and update us with your progress!

try going to an asian market or whole foods to look for shirataki noodles. They’re zero calories! seriously!! Its a great substitute for ramen, just throw in a flavor packet and it tastes just like ramen. So good and best of all, Zero calorie snack/meal
