  • I'm over weight but have an active job (walk dogs, wrestle large dogs, carry heavy boxed/animals)
    Yesterday was:
    Coffee an english muffin with PB & J
    10 chicken nuggets and about 6 fries with coke
    3 triskits with juice
    2 wheat tortilla's half a chicken breast about a 1/2 cup of Spanish rice and about 1/4 of an avocado with water
    Lots of water in between
    Thursdays was:
    A small bowl of Honey Bunches of oats w/ milk
    1 hash brown w/ lemonade
    Skipped lunch
    4-5 small butter cookies (murry's) w/ water
    1 center cut pork chop, 1/2 a zucchini in EVO, about a cup of prepackaged fettuccine (like pasta roni) with frozen spinach in it w/tea.

    I think my biggest problem is I need to walk or something when I'm not a work...skipping meals may not be best either...

  • I actually have a list of what I ate in the last few days because I am trying to lose a few pounds and am currently restricting calories. Yesterday I had:
    breakfast: oatmeal and a banana
    lunch: oatmeal and watermelon
    dinner: turkey sandwich on whole grain bread and a handful of almonds

    breakfast: oatmeal and a banana, lunch: watermelon, almonds, pretzels, dinner: thin crust pizza and a greek salad
