I just signed up at the gym yesterday and I've been taking zumba 3 times a week. Starting my diet today. I'm having a protein shake for breakfast. It doesn't taste great but I'm choking it down. Only 300 calories. Headed to the gym soon.Smile

Why not just eat normal healthy food that you like than a horrible shake you have to choke down?

what kind of shake are you making? There are some great tasting protein powders. Right now, before my workout, I have 8oz coffee, 4oz Almond/Coconut milk 1 scoop Chocolate Carnivor powder, and 5g Creatine. It taste awesome.

I was making a really tasty shake, but the owner of my gym told me that it had too much sugar because of all the fruit. He gave me a recipe which consists of... plain Greek yogurt, 1 cup of berries, half a banana, unsweetened almond milk, and 2 scoops of protein powder (I use the GNC brand, Lean Diet, French vanilla) The problem is that it's too thick and the taste of the protein powder is really strong.

Doc. said to eat more Fruits and Vegetables, so I tried Corn Chips with Peach salsa. He's never happy with my visits.

food diary techie question
Go to your weigh-in page, on the right you click on "restart" Diet. Then you can choose to hide the history before the restart. I think that will remove the old stuff.

Diverticulosis
I find that if I nuke the pumpkin seeds a bit (say 15-20 seconds) that they soften up a bit and make eating them easier.
