I'm 32, married, have a 2 year old boy, and working as an accounting specialist. I was a good weight until after high school when I started getting depo shots and gained about 50 lbs. I've been yo-yoing ever since. I started at 213 lbs on March 27, 2015, and I'd like to eventually get down to 165 lbs if possible in my lifetime. I spend most my time on my computer, watching TV, or reading. I go to the gym at least once a week, but I'd like to do more. I'm on Atkins and plan to stick with it, because I feel like it's the most successful diet, and in some ways the easiest to stick to (except during the holidays, imo).

That recipe sounds delicious and something my family might like. I've been meaning to start making more family meals because I have stopped cooking for my husband and son since I started the diet and I think they miss my cooking. I'll also have to look into Atkins smoothies. I'm afraid to use any Atkins powdered smoothie mixes...I wonder if I can make something like a green smoothie. Thanks for the tips!!

Thank you for the advice of eating more of a variety of vegetables. Maybe I will try to switch it up this week with some green beans and zucchini. I regularly eat cucumbers, celery, and broccoli. I buy spinach/lettuce in hopes of making a salad to go with a meal, but the bags usually go bad before I get to making one. Salads just seem so unfulfilling.

So you think you're eating PALEO do you?
Really interesting article. I never thought about it that way, but now I will laugh when I hear about my friends and/or family going on the paleo diet, I'll have to let them in on the joke. Thanks for posting Smile

Restaurants Without Nutritional Information
I know it's not helpful, but that's why I don't eat out. If I can't find nutritional info, I won't go. You might be able to estimate some of the stuff, but I'd rather just make the food myself and know exactly what's going into it. I find eating simple meals much easier (and most likely healthier) than complex meals served at restaurants.

Tuna! How much is too much?

ceecelia, by convenient do you mean packaged food? I tend to eat simply, in my opinion. lol

Here are a few time saving things I have done:

* Roast a bunch of chicken breasts (or your favorite parts) in the oven. Then you can quickly make chicken soup, a salad with chicken, lettuce wrap, etc. (or eat it plain). lol

* Buy a roasted chicken & do the same as the above.

* Make an egg bake for quick breakfasts all week. I usually throw in some saute veggies (red pepper, onion & zucchini). Top with cheese; Parmesan cheese & cheddar are my favorites. Don't forget to spice things up Wink

* Hamburgers are pretty quick, unless you want a bunch of additions, like I do. My favorite additions: cheddar cheese, bacon, tomato, red onion. Sometimes I add avocado and/or mushrooms. I cut the burger into strips and wrap up all the goodies in romaine lettuce leaves. Yum Very Happy

* Cook extra dinner so you have leftovers for lunch.

Thank you for all the good ideas, LambiePi! I just took about 40 minutes and prepared all my snacks and some of my meals (including seasoned chicken breasts) for the entire week and I think this will help immensely. I find turkey to be cheaper than hamburger, so I just bought a bunch of that (ground), cook it, and eat it with cheese and spices straight out of a bowl. I think you probably get better tasting food than I do from the sound of it, but all those extra toppings mean extra time, and I'm so impatient, haha. I could put the turkey on some lettuce or spinach...I don't know why I don't...it just doesn't end up happening.
