    This.
    There's a reason why the diet industry is a billion dollar industry...

Yogurt is like mainlining sugar -- you may as well eat ice cream. Tortilla chips and pepperjack, more carbs, a little protein. Read the thread.
    Carrots, cheese, and even snap peas are not sugary, they are vegetables and have no complex carbs. I don't know what kind of yogurt she's eating, I often eat plain yogurt so I didn't presume it had sugar in it...still no complex carbohydrates. Greek yogurt in fact is high in protein.

    If the tortilla chips are made out of corn or whole wheat, it's better than white flour.

    I did read the thread, just interpreted it differently than you.

    This is me three months ago. I don't think it looks manly.




    I have always had core dominant strength. It is my legs and arms that could use work.

    Diet Log:

    I know I need to keep improving on the design of my diet, but it is hard when you feel like one step is better than the last, and want to just get used to that first.

    I had my coffee this morning, snack pack at lunch, skipped the yogurt. Oddly enough I didn't get as cranky today, though that is probably because I took an advil when I felt the symptoms kicking in.

    On my lunch break I walked again. This time my calves weren't killing me, and I sort of got into a rhythm. I was feeling good, so it was almost unfortunate that my work out was over.

    I did my sit ups when I got home.

    Today was the first day I put on my old scrubs without them leaving hicky marks on my thighs from trying to pull them up....

    I have more cheek bone definition, and my skin is looking better too.

    I will eat the same old, tortilla chips and tapatio tonight if I get hungry, and will try to work in a yogurt.

    I am planning to swim for my work out tomorrow.

    So you're taking advil to take away hunger pains?

    This isn't helping your metabolism. Small, frequent meals are what speed up your metabolism.

    No, I took the advil to counter the migraine.

    If you would eat small meals throughout the day of things like - oatmeal with no sugar, a boiled egg or two, pieces of cheese with raw vegetables, plain rather than sweetened yogurt - it would help to maintain your blood sugar and your metabolism, keep you from getting cranky.

    I'd like to mention again that things like nuts, beans, non-creamy soups, and whole grains are always good, especially if you're seeing too much dairy in the above suggestions.

    Do you like tuna or sardines? Lentil and spinach soup? Stuff like that?

    No I hate beans, and have a legit fear of fish, even though I know I probably crave it often.

    I most often crave something lean, fresh, substantial, and light and fast.

    Eggs, meat, beans, all seem "heavy" to me.

    I like lean, light, and energetic foods.

    Nothing you eat is substantial. Beans are both substantial and light and fresh, one of the best things you can eat. So are lean cuts of fish and poultry. Eggs are actually very good for you eaten in moderation boiled or poached.

    "Lean, fresh, light, and substantial" also doesn't describe your beloved ramen, ftr.

    I don't think you know how to eat properly. I don't mean that as an insult, I just think you don't.

    What about hummus with your vegetables?

    Unsweetened peanut butter or almond butter with fruit?

    Salads with vinagrette or oil/vinegar and chicken or fish or boiled eggs?

    Tofu with brown rice.

    Quinoa with beans or meat.

    Homemade soups! Man, borscht is freaking wonderful. I have the best recipe for it - it's full of vegetables, and you can put any kind of meat you want in it, and skip the sour cream if you want. It also lasts.
