I'm trying to lose weight. I also don't eat meat. My dad, youngest brother, DH and DS do so all recipies are welcome. I'm at a loss of what to try. I know I need to at least cut down on my junk food. Also have to convince my grandma and DH into not buying junk food. I'm also very picky. Please any help or advice is welcome. Also, how should I go about telling my grandma and DH not to buy junk anymore without coming off as b****y?

What you don't buy you can't eat. So thats the first thing. Then a supply of foods that are good for you that you like! Siomething to grab when your hungry. Pickles SF jello! Stock the fridge with that and fruit and vegies you'll eat!

I don't have my own place or a job right now.I live with my parents, grandma, 2 younger brothers, DH and 2 DS's. My grandma buys most of the groceries and DH buys some for him and DS#1 when he has $. they both tend to buy a bunch of junk.

Its all self control, once you got that down its cake! What you eat shouldn't matter, its how much! I eat 3 meals a day, that's it!!! And it doesn't matter what it is, I just eat small portions. Also, drink water! Cold water burns a lot of calories!

I'm partially concerned because my mom tried dieting once and developed an eating disorder. Clinical depression runs in my family and I guess I'm just worried. On top of everything else in this post.

Honestly, I don't think you can tell them to not buy junk food just because you don't want it. If you don't want to eat junk food, don't. I know that takes a lot of will power, but you will feel better about yourself when you go to bed at night. I crave sweets right before bed, so I will have one pop tart and a small glass of milk. I love the site, allrecipes.com, they have great ideas on there.
