So, i need to drop a few pounds (about 40 to be exact LOL) and i have already made a few changes, but i need a little more advice. I have always ate pretty much junk and i am very picky.
But i am extremely picky, so i pretty much force myself to eat the healthy things. I eat salads with grilled chicken quite a lot and that is getting pretty old.
I keep going back and forth between watching calories, and watching cards instead of sticking with just one, so i think that my have something to do with the weight stall.
I need some ideas on snack ideas, that can be grabed and ate quickly at a desk and be eaten quickly(my boss cant stand it when we eat at our desk). So i have mainly been eating beef jerky. The turkey one has 30 calories. Or cheese.
Is calorie counting or doing low carb better. I know people who do low carb and they loose, but when it comes down to it, i am like " geez, what do i want to eat." LOL
What are some good food ideas? and snack ideas?
Oh, and i love squash, and the ones our supermarket has had latley have been terrible. and they are the only supermarket within 40 miles. So pickins are slim. And i ususlly have to buy a salad from a food place cuase the lettuce is always going bad.
Sorry so long.

Do you like fish? Fish is high protein and lower fat and has healthy oils as well. Not everyone likes it and even a lot of people that like it don't like to cook it. It's all about experimenting.
As for a snack, how about carrot or celery? You could probably have those at your desk without much notice and you get rid of the sodium that you are getting with the jerky which can cause water retention.
As for low carb / low calorie, I had more luck with low carb. It was easier to break the white starch / sugars habits than with a plain low calorie diet.
