Re: In need of some advice.
first thing- do not diet. It's all about balanced, healthy eating. Break your daily eating routine into 5 to 6 smaller meals incorporating all major food groups. Make sure you know how to read food labels and look into calorie counting for the first few weeks to get an idea of how many calories are in particular food items. Most of your daily volume should come from fruits and vegetables. I like frozen better in that you get the same nutrition and it lasts longer- just make sure they don't throw in tons of preservatives in the products you are buying(although they won't add calories). Great food items to use for snacks and meals include greek yogurt, peanut butter (1 serving a day), Quinoa, all legumes, egg beater/egg white subsitute; whole grain tortillas, reduced fat and fat free cheese; cottage cheese; protein powder, ground turkey- extra lean and tuna fish. Limit red meat intake to one day a week and try to get fish two to 3 times. If you find yourself eating more later in the day you need to recognize this is your body's attempt to compensate for the calories it did not get earlier in the day. Make sure you are eating enough food on a regular basis and drink a glass of water with each meal.
For those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings as eagles..
