Recipe: Stuffed Chicken Breast - 150 cal!

Hope everyone is having a good Easter! I don't celebrate, but respect it nonetheless. Also, I know how much of a challenge holiday eating can be.. So I decided to share one low calorie meal option I choose quite often :)I'm no chef, but I can hold my own in the kitchen.Hope you enjoy! Any questions can be left in the comments below!!


What you'll need:

2 Tyson® BS Chicken Breast Tenders

1/3 cup Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes 

1/8 whole red onion - sliced

Garlic Salt, Pepper, Oregano

Parmesan Cheese


Begin by setting your stove to medium-high heat. Place 2 chicken tenders on the skillet and cook thorougly, adding garlic salt and pepper to taste. 3/4 of the way through, on the same skillet but not touching, add onion and tomato - be sure to leave some of the natural juices from the tomato for a flavorful sweat of the onion. You'll need to toss and add spice to taste. When the chicken is cooked thoroughly and you've got a nice sweat to your veggies, cut a slit in the 2 chicken tenders. Add the onion tomato mixture to the chicken, lower to low-medium heat and let sit while the chicken begins to golden and the flavors sink in. After appx 2 minutes, transfer to a plate. Lightly sprinkle with parmesan cheese and oregano.

I like to add a small leafy salad with fat free Italian dressing, and today I paired it with a raspberry yogurt. My favorite. :)

Developing an Eating Disorder?!

One thing that I have going for me is the fact that I have amazing motivation and willpower.. but on the otherside of that, I'm lazy. I'm a gamer (obviously) and will literally sit at my computer for hours on end playing MMOs and RPGs, RTSs and MOBAs. I signed up for a no-contract gym in case I lose the motivation, but I know I need to go and I'm just always too preoccupied. The problem with my desire to lose weight is that I often beat myself up after I've cheated.  I make myself feel horrible, and I can't stop. 

I was eating only 850 calories per day. 8 when I didn't go to the gym, 850 when I did. While there, I would burn 300-400 calories.. leaving my after workout intake of ~400. I started to get incessant headaches, eventually my appetite just went away (I saw it as a good sign.. it was NOT), I wasn't thirsty anymore, I was losing about a pound per day but I felt terrible. My boyfriend sat me down and told me that this wasn't dieting.. it was starvation. Unfortunately I did this for about 11 weeks, which formed a habit and I was afraid that I was developing an eating disorder. He helps to make sure that I'm eating 1200 calories (at least) per day, and exercising 3-4 days per week, but I haven't been doing it long enough to see any results from it. In my head, I'm thinking 'how the hell am I going to lose weight eating THIS much? I'm not even hungry!'

I know a lot about losing weight the healthy way, but I was so tired of being stuck in this body, and fell into (what I think is) the mildest form of anorexia. What's interesting about this, is that I think my mom and sister suffer from it too. Is this hereditary?

When I hear someone call me an 'anorexic', my immediate response is 'Do I look like an anorexic to you?' But I feel like I'm developing something.. and the depression isn't helping.

Ugh.. needed this rant.

1st Post

Hi everyone! Totally new to this, just crossed over from Dailyburn.. which I love! The social aspect isn't as huge over there, and it's a great app for keeping track. To those of us lacking motivation, I'm here to help! Feel free to add me, and have your friends add me. I may be new to MFP, but losing weight is nothing new to me.

Let's start out with a few facts. I live a sedentary life. I'm a huge gamer, and Reddit enthusiast. Also - I've tried everything, or so it seems. I'm 22 years old, and 183 lbs. At the beginning of 2011 I lost 26 lbs using Dailyburn, with the help of my ex boyfriend. After ending the 3 year relationship, I put almost all of it back on. Now that I'm in a new relationship and almost to the 'comfortable' phase, I need all the willpower I can get to stay focused!

I work the night shift at a desk job, and work out at Maximum Fitness 24/7 in WDSM. Feel free to join :)

Love, jaimrlx.
