Welcome Jenn! We are proud you have chosen us as your first community at WebMD. 10 lbs by January is definitely do-able. Watch those calories (don't let the holidays sneak too much merry making goodies in) and get moving any way that works for you.
What you can do is just get one granola bar at a time--not have access to more than one package.
I think giving yourself permission to have more complex carbs including the ones in bread, might just help you NOT too many.
Your trainer and his burn fat by not eating bread maybe sends the wrong message. Nope, you won't lose weight eating half a loaf of cheese bread. Exercise and calorie intake are the key to burning fat--not ruling out entire foods. Maybe he knows you have a problem with od'ing on the breads and cookies so thinks the ban will help?View Thread
I want to add that if you are craving bread and meat, if that craving can be met with a lean meat serving and a whole grain bread that also is a reasonable serving, then you should just give it a go in my opinion.
If what you are craving is a double cheeseburger on a large bun, then that is an emotional type of craving--and you might want to think about why it is that you crave those foods. Is it a childhood thing? Comfort food?View Thread
Carbs except for the ones in fruit help with serotonin especially when not combined with a fat according to our guest expert on Diet. That could be behind your cravings...if none of your carbs is not combined with fat.
I am a bread person myself. The honey oat bread at Subway (unless they have changed it) is the highest calorie bread they have and the highest carb bread even if you subtract the fiber.View Thread
I had another rough weekend. Where does self control go over the weekend? It wasn't horrid on Saturday, but yesterday, I think I ate nonstop. I also felt like a slug, despite a good night's sleep the night before.
Anyone else have this experience?
Or did you have some non-scale or scale victories over the weekend?View Thread
