Good recipes
« on: November 15, 2008, 02:23:03 PM »

Enough is enough, Darla and I are going to lose weight. We are starting off with eating better. No longer are we doing the pre-made stuff for lunch, eating out so much, heavy mexican & italian dishes we always have.

We are getting smarter about our meals and snacks. More fruit and veggies.

So for ideas what are your good recipes you have for these kind of meals? I don't have a problem pre cooking them on the weekend and freezing for lunch.

Grill a boneless/skinless chicken breast marinated with salt and pepper. Slice it, and throw it on top of a some greens for a substantial salad.

But my favorite is Thai Beef Salad. If you use lean flank steak, it's very low in fat since the dressing uses no oil.

In my experience, the issue isn't the fat content nearly as much as the caloric intake.

Many fatty foods can be very calorie dense and unfullfilling, while also offering high glycemic index.

From my experience I agree. When I got serious two years ago and got back into running I didn't change my diet too much. Added more fruit and cut out regular soda and a couple other minor adjustments.

Lost 20 pounds. I am a BIG proponent of eating in moderation and exercise.

And drink more water. Most people don't drink enough.

Echo Clive and Fuzzy. It's a simple math equation of expending more than you bring in. One of the things that helped me was (and 9 out of 10 dentist agree) keeping a daily log of what I ate and when I ate it, a lot of us don't realize how much in between eating we do. You also have to be a diligent label reader at the store, the food industry doesn't want us to eat healthy, you'll find a lot of hidden sugars, high fructose, sucrose etc. Don't be tricked by the low fat signs either, as they are usually high in calories.

And walk, best thing you can do if you can do it.

Having said all that, I'm the one who gained 25 pounds after the lay off. But it was not exercising and too much caloric intake versus calorie burnage, my portion control is terrible. But I'm getting better, down 5 since I started on the island, I walk a lot.

So, Spanky, sorry I can't give you any specific recipes.  My wife cooks pretty healthy dinners, but we're not militant about "NO FAT!" or anything like that.  We believe, for example, that butter is healthier for us than margarine, so we don't feel guilty when we spread some butter on a slice of bread.  But we don't slather it on, and we don't have five slices with dinner, either.

I tried to "loose" some weight in early 2006, and again in 2008.  As Fuzzy said, just adding some fruit and veggie snacks/sides (e.g. spring the $0.55 extra for the fruit cup instead of waffle potatoes at Chik-Fil-A) and portion control was very effective.

Although attention to food content is good, I don't think it's worth going overboard.  Limiting your HFCS intake isn't a diet thing, it's an overall health thing.  Most non-diet sources say fat, in and of itself, isn't evil and that you should have 10%-20% of your calories coming from fat.  Don't go nuts trying to cut fat from your diet -- eating less and moving your body more will be significantly more effective than food-type juggling.

Again, IMFO.

I have started with no more Dr. Peppers, considering I was drinking the non diet variety. I can't stand the aspartane after taste, I will drop weight just from eliminating that from diet. Now Spanky needs to do the same!

 Thumbs Up

I don't drink a lot of soda anymore but when I do I like diet Mountain Dew for some reason. I quit the regular stuff 2 years ago.

One thing to consider about diet sodas is that there are studies that indicate artificial sweeteners confuse body causing it to release insulin the same as it would had you consumed actual sugar. This can make the body feel like it's been calorie deprived, making you crave additional calorie-heavy foods. I have all but cut diet soda from my diet, in favor of unsweetened ice tea. I find myself feeling less "snacky" as a result. Perhaps it's just mental.
