Soup for a cold day
I'm going to try this one tonight: Mexican Style Soup http://fatsecret.com/recipes/mexican-style-soup/Default.aspx

Also, I really like this one from Linda's Low Carb site: Texas Chili http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/texas_chili.html. I know it says "chili" but it's more of a tomato broth base than a thick chili.

And: "Split Pea" Soup (It's bizarre in that instead of split peas it's made with frozen cauliflower and green beans but you really can't taste the difference!) http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/split_pea_soup.html

Snack Ideas
Here's a few:

Microwaved canned diced tomatoes with Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon. (Make sure you check carbs and serving size! For example, Del Monte has much more than Hunts and the organic brand in my local store is ridiculously high. Each can has 3.5 servings.)

Deviled eggs

Beef jerky

Lunch meat

Cheese sticks wrapped in lunch meat

Sliced avocado with ranch dressing

Sliced cucumbers and onions in italian dressing refrigerated overnight

Oscar Meyer hard salami and cream cheese rollups (not at work Very Happy )

Sliced cucumbers spread with cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon. I use Chicken of the Sea smoked salmon in the pouches. (Pat the cucumber slices dry with a paper towel before spreading the cream cheese on it.)

Tuna fish and mayo

Olives (10 for induction)

Any kind of vegetable you can cut up and dip in Ranch sour cream mix

What is better for losing weight: weightlifting or jogging?
Hi Snow833,
It's almost a trick question. Cardio is always the best fat burner BUT weightlifting builds muscle and a pound of muscle burns more calories than a pound of fat even while you're just sitting on the couch. Also, weightlifting helps to combat osteoporosis as well has having lots of other benefits. Cardio obviously is great for your heart and lungs, etc. Sooo...you should do some of both if you can. I lift weights before work and then go for a walk on my lunch hour. I walked very slow initially but am now up to a pretty brisk pace and I find that's enough for me for now.

iPhone Passcode
Is there a way to set a passcode on the mobile phone apps? I have an iPhone that lots of people borrow and, right now, anyone can launch the app and see all my information. Embarassed Thanks.

Site recipe search for induction??

Looking at them closer, I thought they were net carbs but they weren't. I set my food tracker up for net carbs so missed that. :"Wink
I actually can't do sugar alcohols or I stall darn the luck.

But it's odd since potatoes, rice, corn, biscuits and such aren't allowed. Ah well. Thanks for the response!
