My husband and I decided we want to get serious about getting fit and healthy (and I have a LOT of weight to lose). We have two small children and we need something that will work for the whole family since I don't have time to make two different menus and cook seperate meals. We want to have another baby and I don't want to get pregnant until I lose weight. I don't know where to start, and I don't have the extra money to spend on programs such as Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers.Answer Question

Well, I wanted to lose weight this summer so I started using my mom's diabetic diet as a model. She lost a good deal of weight in a few months by making a few diet changes. Mostly I tried to reduce fat as much as I could, eat more lean meats like chicken and fewer processed foods. Also, I watched carbs. For Mom's diet she was allowed 5 carb choices per meal (3 meals a day). Each carb choice was 15 grams of total carbs minus fiber. I split my breakfast and lunch carbs up 4 & 1 so I could have a couple snacks too. After that it is reading labels and making choices. Some foods are free foods (lettuce, green beans, meats) because they have no or very few grams of carbs. I would love to say this has helped and I've lost a lot of weight but 1 month after I started I got pregnant so. . . You may want to consult your doctor or a dietitian though.
