While it is hard to eat right when there are so many fast food chains that keep popping up. There is still hope!! I love to cook and bake healthy and I always get my recipes from lightandtasty.com and cookinglight.com. They have delicious, healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh yea, and my favorite dessert. The key is to eat healthy and exercise. Good luck to all of you!!

I'm exactly in the same boat as you.

I've been eating a salad before every meal to help control my portion size of the main dish (which for me, tends to be the most calorie dense). I cut up a whole head of romaine with a ceramic knife, then soak it in ice cold water and about a 1/4 cup lemon juice for a few min. I drain it but don't rinse the lemon water off, then store it in a tupperware produce container (it is actually rubbermaid brand). It keeps for over a week before it starts to brown, and stays very, very crisp. Having the lettuce cut up already has really helped me keep to my goal of eating more salad

I usually drink a cup of water before any meal which is working very well with me. But I've read an article may be 2 years ago about the benifits of drinking green tea after dinner. I think it said that green tea does not allow the body to store fat. Does anyone know anything about that?

I drink green tea regularly and have found that it helps maintain my current weight. Drinking green tea alone will not shed the pounds. I still need to watch what I eat and exercise regularly. But it certainly does help in keeping the weight off...and looking young!

I have lost 17 pounds in 35 days. I still have a long ways to go but at least the scale is going down.
