Your breakfast salad sounds like a good idea! Please pass along when you perfect
My new fave is a breakfast sandwich: wheat toast or flaxseed flat bread toasted. Spread with hummus and top with a tomato, raw spinach leaves and strips of red pepper. Easy to eat on the go, which is key for me.
Hi integrity - You just took the first step by posting here - I know you can find a way to get healthy and lose weight!
As usual, Kim has some great suggestions to get your started! Here is a direct link to the planner she mentioned: WebMD Food & Fitness Planner .
We had a post about weight loss and truck driving a few months ago. Our expert, Dr. Pam Peeke, had some great suggestions for eating on the road here: Healthy Foods for Truck Drivers .
A new analysis just published has some troubling information for all of us who sit to work: Sitting Too Much May Lead to Diabetes, Heart Disease I know you can't drive a truck standing up! Are you able to get in some walking or other exercise to get you moving a few times a day?
Please keep coming back for information and motivation - I know you can do it!
Check out the great photo of Dr. Peeke on the Katie promoting her new book, The Hunger Fix: The Three-Stage Detox and Recovery Plan for Overeating and Food Addiction, on the Katie Couric show. Nice arms Dr. Peeke! I'm going to have to go back and read your blog post Bye Bye Batwings to work on my upper limbs!
Dr. Peeke writes "Food addiction is real". Do you agree? What food addiction challenges have you faced?
Thank you for continuing to share your journey towards health with us. My friends and I have a saying when it comes to exercise/weight loss - we are either "in the zone" or not. It sounds like you are "in the zone" and embracing it
I love talking about eating veggies with you - I'm looking for a story WebMD just put up about cooking with greens and I'll post soon - would love to have your comments on it.
Halloween is a temptation for me as well. Especially the day after - kids are back at school, husband goes to work and I'm in my home office with the snack sizes yelling at me. This year, I told husband he takes the candy with him or I donate it
