Thanks, PF. I haven't been wearing jeans lately--too hot, so I was a bit surprised. Don't know what I'm going to wear when the weather cools off!

I read s/where recently that one needs to add whole grains to greens to get the full nutritional benefit of the greens.
We did an experiment in high school chemistry, where we held a couple different types of burning food under a dish of water, and measured the rise in temp to determine the number of calories. The only two I remember we're the peanut and the cheeto. The calories were roughly the same, but the cheeto flared up and burned hot and fast, and the peanut smoldered the whole time and took much longer. Definitely a good thing to remember when you are reluctant to eat something like nuts just because they are high calorie. In moderation, they are a good snack to keep you full longer.

+1 exactly. Carbs fill you up, but take less time to digest. It helps (for me) that I'm a protein addict. I love protein. Most folks eat the smallest meal in the morning, largest in the evening. Then people go to bed. I've been trying to change the paradigm--get most of my energy foods on board in the a.m., and then have something light (small) for supper, so a smaller meal for supper. For snacks, I've been drinking veggie juice for snack.

I am bad. That's exactly how I eat. Small or no breakfast, small lunch, and then I eat like I've been saving up calories all day (which I have!!) I love my big dinners... Plus I can't stand going to bed hungry!! I can be mildly hungry all day and it doesn't bother me, but come evening, all I want to do it eat. I just crave food at night. Doesn't seem to make a difference if I eat a lot during the day or not, so I just don't, usually.

For example, it's 6:30 and I've only had around 550 calories today... I did eat it in pretty small amounts throughout the day tho, so that's at least something, right?

I wasn't really trying to lose weight--I really wanted to get some energy back (and, if I did get back into my skinny jeans--bonus or I could give them away). What I wasn't anticipating was that my "bloomers" would turn into bloomers that almost reach my armpits (I know, TMI). If I jumped up and down, PF, they'd be around my ankles. Suspenders? Now I have to go lingerie shopping (or go without--the weather is HOT)...I don't have any skinny lingerie I was hoping to squeeze into again...I see the color purple...

There isn't a kid in New England that hasn't had a Whoopie pie. It was a staple of our lunch bag as a kid. While the rest of the world was eating Twinkies, we had the Whoopie Pie! We also had the half moon cakes/cookies. We used to go around the corner to the Quality Bakery on the way to school and for a nickel, we would buy a day old halfmoon and eat it on the way to school. That or a piece of pizza from the corner store. But we had to have that Whoopie Pie in our lunch bag.

I love whoopie pies, I'm on the hunt for the ultimate recipe. I know that the filling will involve crisco, and I'm just going to have to be OK with that, it may be that one recipe where I break the "no hydrogenated fat" rule, they just aren't the same with butter, tasty yes, but not the same!
