So, I'm no longer the 179 pounds I was 2 years ago when Josiah was born, so yay for that. This morning, I weighed 135.4 pounds. Before baby, I'm normally 125. I gave up soda last week, which should help, because that alone was about 4-600 calories a day, depending on how much I drank. Do any of you have ideas, websites, any easy meal suggestions to help me get rid of these 10 pounds? That may not sound like a lot, but I'm 5'4, and wear a size 4 ring. My bones are tiny, I'm short-waisted and every extra pound shows up on my belly and my back. I end up looking like a wooden barrel with nice legs. :0) I work full-time (still a government drone,) and I'm in week 8 of being back in the swing of working out again. It feels great to see some muscles again, but I am really, really tired of these pounds hanging around. I need stuff I can eat at work, and I don't mind simple, and I don't mind repetitious. I could seriously eat a pack of tuna for lunch every day for two weeks straight, or a turkey sandwich every day. I'm pretty easy. I hate, hate, hate eggs. Most things I see, like BFL meals or tosca Reno meals, incorporate lots of eggs. I love rice, love noodles, turkey, chicken, fish, and we grow fruits and veggies in our garden, so have plenty of frozen and canned beans, corn, potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, sweet potatoes, etc. I don't do artificial sweeteners. I've used real sugar my entire life, and have never had a weight issue. It's always the time after I have a baby that screws things up for a while. Now that I'm older, it's not as easy to get back to my normal set point of around 125. Any ideas?

Daisy - Can you try and take gluten and dairy out of your diet for a month and see what happens?

Daisy, I'd try what Dee said, AND take sugar off the table (ha) for this next month.  Can you use stevia?  I use Stevia Glycerite, by NOW foods, it doesn't have any bitter aftertaste and is very sweet. It's the only stevia I've found that is worth switching to.

Stick with meats, veggies, and healthy fats.  That should help.  Good job quitting the sodas, that should help a lot too. 




I need a new tag line.

I bet you could do it 6 days a week and one day add it in. Nicole started GF the beginning of March and has lost 3 lbs.

I sware by a paleo diet to get rid of the extra lbs. Meat, friut, veggies and nuts. No bread, rice, pasta or anything with an ingredient list. And, no peanuts or peanut butter... they are considered a legume.


Proudly representing the fattest state in the Nation!!!

My son suggests: First add fish oil 3000 mg a day 3 1000 mg capsules 3x daily (enteric coated) which will help break down adipose tissue around organs/core... don't worry about calories worry about macronutrient ratios... decrease carbo intake to 100 a day on training days and 50 on off days... whole grain sources w/ low glycemic index like brown rice/oats. Most of your carbs should be consumed post workout as they will be utilized to replenish glycogen stores at that time. Up protein and fat intake, protein should be about 1 to 1.5 gram per lb of lean mass per day so probably 120 to 150 for you... use whey pre and post workout and before bed. The more dietary fat you take in the more efficient your body becomes at utilizing fat as an energy source. Eat real butter and mayo, no hydrogenated/vegetable oils etc... i also have a paper ill bring u tomorrow I wrote on biochemistry of fat metabolism that will help.

Then:

Levi Garrett Yup just enough to keep glycogen replenished... tuna w/ mayo will get you shredded quick Two or three weeks and you'll be good to go Fish oil for sure, you might wanna run conjugated linoleic acid too (CLA), good natural cutting agent... and im assuming you already take a multi every day?? If not do so

Tracy Annette Clark I do, I take two Flintstones every day! Ok, cla, lots of tuna, fish oil. I can do that. I hate eggs, but don't mind repetition. I can eat the same thing every day, just have got to get these last few pounds off me. Away, satanic fat! I need a fat exorcism.....

Finally, Levi said: Eggs are good for you lol... if you get enteric coated fish oil capsules it cuts down on the aftertaste a lot Almonds, avocados, butter, mayo for your fats... probably 60 to 80 grams a day for you would suffice Good for your lipid profile too contrary to popular belief... my lipids are perfect with high fat diet vs bad with high sugar/carbo diet. Sugar contributes to elevated levels of type A low density lipoprotein (bad)

I've gotten good advice,just not what the 2-year old inside of me wants to hear. I wanted a pixi stix and pancake meal plan, lol......

M1: 2 Hard boiled eggs M2: Banana with almond butter M3: Chicken breast with veggies M4: Apple M5: Steak with veggies M6: Hand full of almonds
