Keep eating the eggs. Eggs are nutritious. Good nutrition is a key to your goal. Eggs are not the "cause". It's other "stuff" you're eating that's the "cause"...
The keys to weight loss are three things:
(1.) Excellent nutrition, and (2.) Continuous movement (3.) The intelligence and ingenuity to insert (1.) and (2.) into an already full and busy schedule (especially, when kids are in the picture).
If you study these three things, you will slowly realize this is not an easy. Particularly, if you're barely making ends meet. In other words, without some serious smarts and resourcefulness, if you don't have either the time or money, most will fail...and, most do (fail), do they not? The tip is, "Take it slow, take it easy". Start with the easiest meal of the day and, imo, the most critical...
Try and eat breakfast as clean, as cheaply & with the least amount of cooking as possible. Like I said, weight loss is tough without serious thought and intention. While you cement this habit, get a pedometer and slowly add steps into your daily routine. Once you've firmly etched these two "routines" into your psyche, you've laid a solid foundation for your weight loss program. From there, then, build from the ground, up. It will work. Good luck!View Thread
This is a very smart question. 99% of the folks, here, ask the same dumb questions. You, on the other hand, ask a question about an essential component of weight loss, eating plants. This is how true problem solvers overcome challenges...breaking down complex problems into bite-size pieces.
OK, I'll give you several suggestions. First, guacamole and salsa. You can go on youtube or google and find a million recipes on how to make it. Homemade Guac and Salsa are two of the healthiest things you can possibly eat. If you just ate a little bit, everyday, you'd be eating healthier than the majority of people in this country. The store bought crud is junk, btw; wouldn't feed it to my dogs. Second suggestion is burritos. Homemade bean burritos are delicious and super healthy. I use a can of black beans (rinsed), taco seasonings, green onions, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced avocados, sour cream, asiago cheese, homemade hot sauce, homemade guac. It's more mind altering than magic mushrooms . Third suggestion, get a crock pot. Youtube and google have a million recipes, literally, on how to make homemade vegetable soups, casseroles, etc. Fourth suggestion: Pasta salads. Another million recipes. Rotelle or medium shell pasta, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, red onions, black olives, fresh diced tomatoes, chopped crimini mushrooms, parmesan cheese. 15 minutes to make. Crazy delicious. Also, baked red potatoes. Red potatoes, skin on, are excellent for you. I cook em in the microwave. After they cool a bit, add some fresh minced garlic, fresh green onions, a little italian parsley, sour cream, parmesan cheese and small amount of olive oil or melted butter.
The last suggestion: Take whatever rot-gut favorite you normally eat, say frozen pasta dinners or kraft mac-n-cheese and slowly add a few vegetables to cook (microwave) along with it. Start off frozen peas and carrots. Graduate to frozen broccoli or green beans. Then, brave new worlds with frozen cauliflower. Just add a tiny bit more each time so you build a tolerance, yet, don't heave all over yourself in the process.
There, you go. My best stuff. You deserve it because you asked a smart question. Kudos and good luck.View Thread
Because...You didn't do anything different. You methodically destroy your health without sufficient movement and consistently eating a proper diet. The only way to lose weight long term is to heal your body through healthy lifestyle. You can also lose weight by surgically reducing the size of your stomach to 1/8 (12%) its original size. But, by eating so little you will eventually die from starvation and malnutrition. Your body will not allow this, so, it makes a new stomach. By not doing "anything different", you've regained the weight, again. Many people in your predicament suggest getting the surgery done a second time. Now that you know what has happened, what do you think about that idea?View Thread
Each person is different so any advice you get from anyone else is only a guess. I don't guess when it comes to my safety. So, I test.
You have a meter; use it. Get a notebook and take readings. Fasting blood glucose, 2 hr post prandials, just prior to exercise, after exercise. Experiment with different foods. My preferred choices since I exercise, everyday...sweet potatoes, steel cut oats, quinoa, high quality japanese "gen-mai" (brown rice), pumpkin, black and kidney beans...Find the "fuel" that releases just the right amounts of glucose to keep you safe and steady throughout your workout.
Several people at your gym should be apprised of your condition and what to do if you go down. Carry glucose tabs at all times. Your body is intuitive and adapts to all demands provided nutrition is maintained at a high level and movement is consistent. I never set foot in a gym; all of my intense workouts are outdoors at 4am so I can't afford any "mistakes". So, this is how I roll.View Thread
