Calorie Bargain when hungry
Hi I realize these are old posts but thought I'd respond anyway, in case other newbies come here to this forum. I don't care for broth by itself ... reminds me of when I would get sick. haha. But, I do like it if I use reduced sodium vegetable broth, with a handful or two of my fave frozen veggies. Like frozen broccoli, kale, peppers, onions etc. Great filling power and for negligible cals.

What I did related to a lifestyle change, is change ea. meal one at a time. Like breakfast first, and adding in a protein and removing sugar and excess fat. Then I did the same for lunch, dinner, and snacks. If you'd like some info. on my 3-Day Diet with 2 days off, email me and I'll be happy to give it to you. Blessings, Pam

Veggies For Breakfast
I love a healthy fruit salad with my faves incl. apples, drained crushed pineapple, carrots, celery, a bit of red onion; toss apples in lemon juice. I make a big bowl for the week, so I can have some whenever I want. I dish up a bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon, add a nonfat flavored yogurt--my fave is Lemon--add whatever leftover protein you have from the night before and you are good to go. This type of salad doesn't upset my stomach in the a.m. I also make a huge pan of roasted veggies, and eat throughout the week, these would go well with a protein and a bit of starch, for breakfast. Hope all these ideas help.

big belly
I think just the fact you are so small, any protrusion would look bigger to you--probably not to anyone else, or not as much as you think. I once read that "great abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym." Try eating veggies and lean protein; concentrate on eating a portion of diuretic veggies ea. day, such as asparagus; eliminate all bread and extra fats like butter; continue to drink lots of water. This should help the bloating, which may be all your "pot" is. People that are getting ready for body building pics. do the above to eliminate as much water as possible by limiting carbs. Carbs. like bread and grains, hold water to process. When you drop these foods for awhile, you will drop the extra water and esp. from your belly. Later you can add back some but not all of these carbs. and see what happens. Also relax and be kind to yourself for your great accomplishment. Sometimes, your body takes time to adjust to the weight loss and it takes awhile for the body to recomposition the fat and water and muscles.

Low Calorie "filler foods"?
I love all the tips for filling meal and snacks. Thanks all for sharing with this returning "newbie". I recently learned about finely grated cauliflower (raw) and use it as you would rice; or put it in a mixed vegetable salad, it looks like small bits of cheese--yet the taste is neutral and the fiber is filling.
