How and the heck are all you people succeeding with your weight loss or maintaining when you are eating all of that food. I look at all that food and I now know how I got into the situation to begin with.

Because when you cook at home, with fresh raw ingredients, you are in control of exactly how much you consume and how many calories go into it.

My seared lemon herb chicken breast with roasted veggies is going to be half the calories of that at any restaurant, and likely less then half the fat and you get to eat more. My chocolate covered strawberries are only about 30 calories each.. compare that to store bought ones. My beef stew is under 200 calories a serving and it's twice the amount you get from progresso and next to no sodium in comparison.

Hidden calories and fat and salt go away when you cook.

Is that all one meal for you or are you sharing that. it seems like an awful lot for just one person to eat.

What??????? I have never been a good food eater and it has cost me dearly now that I am in my 40's. I have no idea what food are carbs, what are good foods for protein and that sort of thing. I am learning slowly and I think as we proceed with this dietary change, I will understand more. My initial goal was to just lose the weight to be lighter on my feet. As I get close to finishing my second month, I am beginnning to rethink this to get a body more like the one I one, cut but not ripped. Maybe not quite like yours but one that walking a beach without my shirt on will no longer be uncomfortable.

You should start with learning the basics of what foods contain what macros so you have some idea. Stick to calorie target and get enough protein and fat and do some resistance training. Do that consistently and you'll be on the right track.

Also, a few of us are intermittent fasters meaning that we will fast for a bit and then eat a large meal. Therefore, it is much easier to stick to calorie targets because of fewer meals consumed.

It was a really good combo. I did more carrots while I had the mandolin out and put them in the pickle, to have today, it'll be interesting to see how they come out, they might be too pickled.

Well, it's somehow all a bit colourless, but it was still good.

Roasted cabbage (with bran flakes for extra crunch), cheeseburger on homemade bread and a teeny bit of brown rice. I was pretty pleased with my homemade bread until I saw that bacon cheddar beer bread, which I did not know was a thing, but now that I do I feel I have been missing it ALL MY LIFE.

And for dessert, Greek yogurt, half a banana, almond butter and white (cookie dough-flavoured) tea

In the spirit of honesty and full disclosure, a meal made up entirely of convenience foods. Sometimes this really is the best I can do. Before adding a glass of wine, it's 400 calories.

Store bought chicken tenders and french fries, and frozen broccoli.

Crustless spinach quiche (207 calories for a piece, which was a 6th of a 9x13 pan) turkey bacon

Image not displayed

This was my spin on Steak N Shakes 3D grilled cheese steakburgers. Turkey burgers with 3 fat free cheeses, and homemade fat free thousand isalnd dressing. Originals are 770 calories and 52g of fat. Mine are 343 calories and 3g fat. I served them with Hungry Girls bloomin onion and salads. :) These are hubbies 2 burgers laugh

Image not displayed

These are gems! Devils food cake mix with 15oz canned pumpkin instead off the eggs/oil. Throw on some fat free cool whip and youve got around 195 calories total instead of 280 for the cupcake minus icing. And theyre yummy!
