  • Cheese - a good sharp cheddar like Tillamook - no brakes. Lays Potato Chips and Heluva Dip - horrors. Tortilla chips and salsa -- eat until I'm sick. Then add cheese to that and oh my.... Nachos!! Just one serving? Have you actually seen what 1 serving of tortilla chips and 1 oz of cheese looks like? Nope - stay away.
  • As so many have said - go, enjoy the time. Eat light for the rest of the day or get the fruit cup. I look back fondly on the many times I had to take my father-in-law (who was in full dementia) and mother-in-law to a well known buffet that would literally make me sick to eat their food. Didn't know why at the time, but it…
  • A big plate of extra cheesy nachos - then on to the tamales, tacos, enchiladas, chimi's, and wash down with a few Patron Margaritas and on to the Flan......
  • #1 - cheese #2 - chips/tortilla; which makes nachos and Vodka which leads to more nachos... Oreos - stop at just 2? Hard to do.
  • Have to admit right up front, I've only read 1/2 of the comments - however, I urge the OP to talk directly to the teacher and then, if not satisfied, the principal. There are policies in place to help these types of issues. Now, then, please take this from an old woman that has worked 30+ years in Education, "If you will…
  • OP - no need to defend yourself in your WOE -- you keep on doing what makes you feel good! I, also, cut gluten, (hypothroid/Hashimoto) limit added sugars (I eat a lot of fruit/veggies), cut way back on dairy (but CHEESE? Do not wish to cut it totally - Never!) We started eating loads of veggies (roasted, salads, raw) and…
  • What we used to eat in creamy pasta (yum!) and the massive quantity we would eat, we now eat in roasted veggies. For a very large plate of whatever kind of veggies you like - we do red/yellow/orange peppers, onion, asparagus, mushrooms, sweet potato (1 of those), butternut squash, zucchini all chopped up - spray an olive…
  • Taco Bell -- my husband and I have not eaten Taco Bell tacos in almost 4 years - fresh homemade tacos are So much better! We were traveling and stopped and got tacos and looked at each other and said, did they always taste like this?! blehhhhhh - they were awful and gave us horrible bellyaches. Used to eat there at least…
  • Corn tortillas - usually because they are smaller and made with corn instead of refined white flour. Which is fine if you wish to use calories on that. I have always like corn tortillas better anyway. Depending on the maker, the corn tortillas I get are 2 tortillas = 100 calories. Have tried the "skinny" ones - and nope,…
  • I will run for Tacos! I can and do many times eat "mexican" 3 times a day - a good salsa on my eggs with some homemade guac (avocado/lime/salt); a bean/cheese taco for lunch (corn tortilla) and home baked fajitas for supper. Salsa/chips is my go to snack - count/weigh those puppies out and crunch away! A super tasty good…
  • I yo-yo'd for more than 30 years. I have done them all... crash diet, all the fad diets, all the commercial plans -- I wish I had back all the $$$$ I spent over the years on books, plans, and foods. It truly is a mindset - not a; I will only eat 1 lettuce leaf until I reach my goal weight - then I will Know how to keep it…
  • ^^This. I have learned the hard way - people don't "really" want to know how you have gotten healthier. When my husband and I reached our goal - people (relatives, friends & even just acquaintances) asked constantly, how did you do it? And then make fun of our WOE. Why did you do it? Are you sick? And then would try their…
  • I'm a Hellman's (it's Best Food mayo, just East of the Mississippi) mayonnaise kind of person - and no low-fat, fat-free stuff. Would rather eat none at all..... Was a Best Foods person and thought I would Die when we moved East and there wasn't any Best Foods; but, hey that Hellman's mayo label looks familiar ;-) I then…
  • I understand completely what you are saying..... do you have a sensitivity to all grains? For whatever reason, oatmeal (porridge) makes me super gassy and bloated by mid-morning. And I love oatmeal, especially with blueberries or peanut butter, etc in it. I've tried it "overnight" oats - I've tried it with almond milk,…
  • Narrow down to 3? Oh my, then I'll make it a broad 3 Veggies - lots of green, zucchini, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, ...... Fruits - mainly apples, bananas, all kinds of berries that are a reasonable price and of course, avocados Proteins - lots of chicken, 2 dozen eggs, Fage 0%
  • ^^DITTO This^^

  • I need to get better, too!! Sweetned coffee creamer is my giant oops! Well not really oops since that makes it sound like an accident. No accident there! I'm going to give that one up and then move on from there. I haven't had any kind of artificial sweetener in years since it makes me puke. Good way to give something up!…
  • ^^^nicely said. I also like a "green smoothie" for breakfast. Seems to set my day up really well. Perhaps "reboot" my brain to be on a good track. My favorite (right now) is 1 cup of coconut water, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 cup spinach, 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder. Boy, does that make an ugly…
  • +2!! I could eat one everyday - just fairly hard to come by very good avocados in the Midwest that don't cost an arm and a leg! In addition to just splitting it open and digging in with a spoon - I love guac (of course), and on my salads, on my eggs, in my smoothies, on my baked fajitas, on cottage cheese, even on my…
  • Good luck to you! You will feel amazing!! Pay close attention to how your body reacts when reintroducing any foods and you will be astounded by finding out that either somethings you thought made you feel bad, don't; and also finding out things you didn't even think about make you feel like pooh. I concur wholeheartedly to…
  • Ah yes, this happens. I think sometimes we have built up in our minds how wonderful something would taste, and scrimp and save calories to splurge on that item and *boom* - not so great after all! Disappointed for sure - log it, learn from it, move on from it. My husband and I had a hankering for Taco Bell. Now, we don't…
  • Have gone both routes. In the very beginning (Jan 2013) I had no friends and just got on with life by me, myself, and I. Lost 70#. Fast forward another year and I was struggling to maintain -left MFP - came back and thought, hey I'll try it differently this time. Requested/Accepted friends that seemed in a similar place -…
  • My husband and I hit the "moderate" cost according to the chart. We are empty nesters and have totally revamped our eating - hence, the weight loss. I believe our costs have stayed pretty much the same since we have cut out buying groceries AND eating out pretty much everyday. Now we only eat out occasionally but buy…
  • crock pot is my friend for easy lunches. I'll do a sweet potato/quinoa/black bean/chicken type of chili and use it all week for lunches. So easy. There are so many things you can do. This time of year, it is usually a soup/chili of some kind with as much spice and flavor as possible. Doing the gluten thing (non-celiac…
  • Broken record here -- I boil a dozen eggs on Sunday and grab one along with a banana, peanut butter, clementines. Won't go into how most Sundays I do prep our breakfasts, lunches and all veggies and such for the week. Such a life/time saver for the week.
  • You will feel so much better in about a week. Depending on the amount of caffeine you ingested everyday. The caffeine withdrawal headache usually goes away after a few days and you will start to sleep better in a couple weeks. The added sugars - again - depending on how much you took in everyday. But, when I fall and eat…
  • I'm okay with AZ, but prefer Halo Top.... Fairly simple person with my favorite being Halo Top Vanilla Bean with a nuked cinnamon apple on top. Yum.
  • Interested in the Insta-Pot next. I am on my 3rd or 4th, I forget, slow cooker. My favorite so far has been the one I use now (was a "gift" to my husband) and it is a 7 QT Cuisinart programmable multi-cooker - love it. Use it at least 1 time a week if not 2 or 3. Waiting for this one to die before going on to the next…
  • It is great to read that other folks suffer from wheat - wait, I don't mean I'm happy y'all suffer - I just mean I don't feel so alone! When I went GF 4 years ago, my husband came along with me. Really though he didn't have much choice, did he? We just basically have eaten Whole Foods that are naturally GF without trying…
