Spent a lot of time on Sunday doing meal prep for.the week. I think I am going to make things simpler for myself. In the evening when I make dinner (usually a protein and a veg) I think I am going to make a little extra, full my meal prep containers and just toss them in the freezer. I just will label the containers with masking tape so I know what I am.grabbing.

Next week I want to make some.homemade hummus,hardboil some eggs and I have nuts for snacks. Having the containers done for during the week.seems to make things so much easier. Especially during the work week!!!

I was reading your site about the South beach diet.
Hope this site keeps going and you all post often. Even on days when we have slips.{And we all do at some point.
I may do this with you. I have sliped and I need to get back and do something, Before I really fall of plan.
We do need veggies and leaner meats{I think and watch those bad carbs.
I think instead of low fat or non, That we need {limits like good healthy fats. Like 1/4 of a avaco.~1T. good oils. Berries are great also and lower sugar.
Yourt is good to. But read on them too and get good one. and add your own stuff.Beans,1/2c go great in salads and adds protien.
Rise and get the salts out anddrain.
Eggsare filling also.
Nuts{1/4 c. are good too.
Play with want works for you.
I also detox in sauna and steam room. and 1f is good too.
I just need to stay on track and get back to exercising and detoxing.
.

watch and measure those salad dressing too.
I think also{Green smoothiesare great too.
Read lables.I also eat veggies bugars . If you do go out or want a reg. bugar wrap in lettuce leaves.
They are so many plans out there. They all work. just have to keep going.
Posting helps too.
And move that body. You have to work those muscle and build them.
walk.Do something.
Calaries also count and so do protions.
Green bananas have less sugar also.
. Keep posting.

Hi janet! Glad you are here! It's wonderful to read your posts and have another person posting with me !!
I really appreciate your suggestions. I think you have gotten the wheels turning in my head lol!!

Thank you for mentioning veggie bugers! I love them and have them on my shopping list for next week! Which ones do you prefer? I like the Boca or the Morningstar farms burgers.
You are also right about the beans. I am thinking of cooking up some lean ground turkey with seasonings and throwing a drained can of black beans in it. I could then make a taco salad with lowfat cheddar and lettuce. I don't mind eating that every day!

Dressings i limit to a tablespoon of south beach friendly dressing but maybe instead I could try olive and vinegar instead? thinking that would be a good way to get healthier oils in!

Thank you for the great suggestions and welcome!

Hi,
It is hard to lose weight and harder at times to stay with it.
And the scale.can play with your head. Just have to reset mind and just keep going.Fine what works for you. You may have to do 2 diets together but as long as you are looseing and feeling good.ok
The other key is to move that body.And weights also to build and keep muscle
You seem to be doing good.
On veggie bugarsI like Morning star. I like humus also on rice cakes. Soups are good also.
Just know that the way to health is slow and you have to really want to do it.
Health and being well is so much better then the bad foods that have gotten all us fat.
Are bodies do well with healthy carbs. greens veggies fruit. healthy fast and yes exerscese.
The more you get fit the more you want and one day u also will say I did it. But then the hard road comes and you have to fight not to regain. Read lables. Read health books. get surport.
cook as healthy as you can. and when u do go out there are choices.,
Good luck.
Hope we get more to post as it helps.
I also have to keep reseting and get back on track.
So looks like if reading right you have come far already. great job.

Today was another good day! I noticed that I really wasn't hungry. I didn't really do food prep today as I am working on eating the bean less chilli and the taco cauliflower rice i made. It just seems easier to pack leftovers than to spend the afternoon doing meal prep. I just have to hardboil some eggs for snacks. I finish 14 days on phase one saturday. I am thinking of doing another round of phase one after I finish this one.
