Okay, did I just say the regular three meals + two additional equals six?

Oh well, you get the idea. Try six, not five.

I'm blaming it on the cat!

I understand the concept.

When I eat pizza, I cut it into six pieces, not eight. I don't think it's wise to eat eight pieces of pizza...

BTW, I did one one hour and seven minutes today on the steps. Yikes, I had housewives dodging me by more than twenty feet when I got off. The day after a garlic meal, I can make the men dodge me, as well...

You know - if you cut that into just 4 pieces it would be better!

You've got the idea - you know what to do - I can't make myself do it either! Just start with healthier choices and more balance.

Off subject, but that dang Stairmaster is torture to my legs. I do a bunch of lower body exercise, including squats, but that thing kills me. It's reason enough to use an elevator!

I'm with kitchenelf on the advice -
REALLY important to eat good protein before your workout - you'll be amazed at the amount of energy you will have from it.

Combining really is important. Good example: When I make a big salad for lunch, I'll put in a few different lettuces, either sliced egg or grilled chicken pieces, pumpkin seeds, suflower seeds, tomatoes, cucumber, celery, carrots, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. It's so easy, since I have all the necessary ingreds already chopped up in the fridge. It's like having a salad bar at home.

Oh! and don't forget to drink milk! It's so good for you!

BTW - great photo - thanks for posting :)

My husband is a complete carnivore. He will eat other things, but if I didn't keep after him, he would live off meat and bread.

Eating nuts, cheese or beans as snacks may help tame your beast.

It is not impossible...just setting goals

Fruits, Veggies....you heard it a thousand and more times. EXERCISE...enjoy it. Make it part of your life. Just don't do it because you MUST. Simple movements...every day.

Check out Dr. Oz on oprah.com he has a lot of ideas. He also published several books. ...check oprah's site. Worth the effort to check it.

And to make it real simple: Dr. Gott...eat all foods (controlled portions).EXCEPT...........

Elimiate all white flour foods and sugar. (this eliminates a lot of food).

YOU DO WANT TO BE HEALTHY AND LIVE BETTER AND LONGER. Aria

aria, you shouldn't eliminate from your diet like that. that's abnormal & would be kinda obsessive.

Ya' know, if added cheese and baked beans (and a tad of bacon for those cheeseburgers) it would be a diet for me to be a happy camper.
