    ALso consider protein shakes as meal supplements. Try Muscle Milk light, very filling.

      I am right there with you Mel. I have some more weight to lose and 33 days to do it in.

      I thought I would try today to not eat carbs, but I can't do it. Its not possible for me. lol

      I ate pretty well today though, so I am working on it. I have boot camp tonight and I am going to really push myself. I am thinking that the salad I just ate will not keep me full for long though. SO, I need a very low cal snack with some protein in it that I can eat when I get home from boot camp. Any suggestions?

          I got home late from work and didn't have time to cook, so I ate a bowl of multi-grain Cheerios with low-fat milk and added some raisins.
          Letting it digest before I go work out.
          It has 100% of several vitamins and minerals, so that's good.
          I don't eat it every day, but good for times like this.

          Good luck ladies!!!

            Yay!! So glad you started this thread!!!

            I worked out this morning for 1 hour 15 minutes total, I was supposed to take one of the dogs for a walk/jog this afternoon, but my afternoon got kind of screwed up and it was almost dark when I got home, so I'll try for the double workout tomorrow.

            I ate a light yogurt, a banana, a lean cuisine, and a pork chop, and lots of water. Not my ideal menu, I usually have salad, but I'm not that hungry tonight so I just ate the porkchop.

            We can all do this!

            Ummm I love carrots or cucumbers, don't know if that's good prior to a workout. You should treat yourself to a protein shake after bootcamp. I put in protein powder, OJ, a banana, some vanilla yogurt and 3 strawberries. Oh and ice too. Blend it up, it's soo yummy.

That's super jill! Wow, with your double workouts I kow you'll see results. I'm so proud of you. I don't like working up a sweat.

            We can all do this!

            You're right we can do this. Gotta keep saying that to myself. It's so hard.

            Thanks Kash about the shredded wheat tip and recipes. I'm going to try the salad tomorrow. I love balsamic.

            We ended up having chicken and corn on the cob tonite (I know carbs). I added a side of steamed brocolli while FH added some potatoes which looked so good.

              It was hard Jill! But I'm proud of myself for doing it. Now I have to go work out and I'm not wanting to. I'd rather have a nice relaxing bubble bath.

                If you want to drop pounds fast, stick to a 1300 calorie per day diet. A good way to make sure you are getting enough protein is to follow this ratio: 22% protein (71.5g), 22% Fat (31.7g - yes, you need good fats) and 56% Carbs (182g).

                Keep doing your strength training (weights) AND do 1 hour of cardio 6 days per week (target 228 calories burned each session). The equipment at the gym is usually off by 65%, so if the treadmill says you've burned 100 calories, it's really only 35. No one ever tells you that and it's a bummer.

                I got this regime from my (expensive) trainer. I am so happy to share it and hope it helps!

                Good luck!

                  Muscle Milk light is great. Put is in the blender with 1 cup of frozen berries and you have a terrific meal.
