  • I had an EAS Get Lean and Toned Strawberry Shake and 1/2 of a Morningstar Sausage patty
  • Originally Wisconsin, but have lived in Montana and California, currently in Arizona
  • As long as I eat every 3-4 hours and include protein in every meal, I've been able to get rid of all my after dinner cravings. I aim to have between 60-80 g of protein each day.
  • I just moved from Montana back to Arizona 2 years ago... I miss it there so much!!! What part of Montana are you in?
  • Try and get between 60-80 g of Protein and 20-30 g of Fiber everyday... It should help you. You might want to relook at your calorie goal and adjust your %'s for protein, fats, and carbs.
  • Quest Bars - 170 calories, 20g Protein, 6 g Sugar (includes sugar alcohols) Pure Protein - 180 calories, 21 g Protein, 3 g Sugar (includes sugar alcohols) Think Thin - 240 calories, 20 g Protein, 12 g Sugar (includes sugar alcohols) Simple Truth - 190 calories, 21 g Protein, 7 g Sugar Zone Perfect - 200 calories, 14 g…
  • I use the Atkins Strawberry Shakes in the morning for breakfast. Only 150 calories and 15 g Protein. I combine it with a Morningstar Sausage Patty (80 Calories/ 10 g Protein).

  • I only eat between 1200-1300 that are given to me... I don't eat back the calories that are added because of my exercise. It defeats the purpose when you're trying to lose weight unless you're running a marathon or doing an extreme workout like that when you do need to actually eat more calories.
  • It depends on what your end goal is? Are you trying to get lean and toned or just lose weight? I always add in some circuit training, interval training, and weight lifting into my workouts each day so I don't lose all my muscle.
  • I've been there with you. I've lost, gained, lost, gained, and lost again. I've tried Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and Nutri-system. I always seemed to do well on their food, but once I went onto maintenance to eat "normal" food again, I started gaining it all back. I started seeing a dietitian a week and a half ago and…
  • My goals each day are to have between 1200-1300 Calories, 60-80 g Protein, and 20-30 g Fiber. Obviously the protein and fiber increases with my exercise. Breakfast: Atkins Strawberry Shake or EAS Strawberry Get Lean and Toned Shake 1 Morningstar Sausage Patty AM Snack: 100-150 calories 1/2 Pear or 1/2 apple Blueberry…
  • It could be from foods you were eating before. I had a similar thing happen last year. I love chocolate. I have/had a huge sweet tooth. Last year, I had gone to my doctor to get a topical cream (thinking it was acne issues). I used the cream for about 2-3 weeks and then Lent started. I had given up everything chocolate…
