Reader's Digest has some books that are very helpful..."Reverse Diabetes." Lots of good info. I would check with the American Diabetes Assoc. Site for info. Truthfully, I don't do much on the computer but the above books got me on track. Plus The CalorieKing Calorie Fat & Carbohydrate Counter. That is a great book! It also has good general info. I haven't counted a calorie but watched carbs and followed the No White (bread made with enriched flour, rice, potatoes) rule. I eat quite a bit of food and am not hungry.

Thanks, I am not computer savvy either, I honestly don't know how anyone finds anything, all I get into is ads.
Thanks again.

Now that I'm back on the wagon after going away (took me a few days to break the eat everything in sight habit again) I went to the grocery store and I'm quite pleased! Love grocery store deals. Just got 8 cans of soup, six bags of microwavable steamed veggies and ww frozen yogurt. Total before store savings $37... Total after $20! I wish I had the storage and money to more then that! The only thing better for me then losing weight is saving money!

Another thing worth trying. Cut out all gluten and white grains. Also avoid anything diet, the aspertame is horrid for you.

I'm back on the wagon and busting my butt at the gym. I am more focused on weights then cardio as I want to gain muscle and strength. I am still doing cardio but I am more set on turning fat into muscle and I know as I go it will burn off what is hanging around my stomach. As it stands I am holding all the weight in my stomach so I look like i'm 8 months pregnant. Which is brutal when I have people asking me when i'm due.

I skipped weigh in this week since I was sick. Now i'm back at it though I will weigh in next week.

Also if you need to up your protein intake and are sick of meat and fish I eat Fage Greek yogurt. It's high in protein and low in calories and sugar. You can use it as a base for fruit dips, other dips, and the Fage website actually has a recipe book of delicious and healthy things you can make with the yogurt. My favorite is Fage 0% with a little honey mixed in and than I eat it as a fruit dip. It is DELICIOUS! And on the up side, you get a pretty darn big serving for the few calories and the amount of protein.
My favorite recipe is as follows:
1 serving of Fage Total 0% (1 cup)
A little honey to taste (I use about 2 tsp)
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup raspberries
1 tbsp of slivered almonds
This is probably one of my favorite snacks and it takes away the sweets craving while staying healthy.

Also my recent find is high protein cottage cheese. I noticed that you also get a fairly large serving with this while not overdoing calories. I mix mine with fresh cut peaches to add a little flavor and if you want even more flavor put a little cinnamon in there with it. It's pretty darn good :) I eat the Land'O Lakes I do believe it is..

My plan to do the JUDDD diet did not work...I kept going over calories on my down days. :/
So now I am just doing Atkins till I get into ketosis then I will proceed w/JUDDD.
(Ketosis equals no hunger) Today is my second day on atkins..

I called about a local boot camp workout in town. I get to go to the first workout free.
I am trying to talk myself into going tonight. It is just so hard to go that first time!

Instead of forcing your body into ketosis try eating a balanced diet by counting your calories EVERY DAY. When you are trying to be healthy there is no such thing as an off day-every day is a day to be healthy. Try changing your mindset. You can still eat things if you have them in the proper caloric portions.

I'm not a fan of Atkins. Once you try to eat bread again you gain all the weight back. I tried a ketogenic diet once and it did little for me. However once I counted my calories and ate a balanced diet that was high in protein and healthy carbs and lower in sugar the fat melted off and my muscles became chiseled and I was defined.

Try the MyFitness Pal app to count calories and exercise. It's free and has a huge database of foods and exercises.

Also use spices and naturally flavored foods to satisfy your cravings. You can also make most recipes healthy by substitution of ingredients. For instance when I make enchiladas I use only turkey or chicken and I make sure it's fresh with no preservatives. Use low fat everything and go easy on the cheese and hot sauce. You can make a dish that is traditionally packed with calories surprisingly filling and low cal while staying high protein.

cowgirl - I know that's my problem...Ive been on atkins for years and lost the weight but gained it all back and then some! I am very sensitive to breads, noodles, and rice now..Carbs bloat me..
That's the only problem w/atkins is it don't allow for practical "cheat days" you will pay for it.
I have to give it a try because I am at a heavy weight now and the weight wont budge unless I kick my body into gear w/a plan.
Your enchiladas sound yummo!
