Here's a good link from MSN I found awhile ago - offers some good portion controlled meals. I don't follow them exactly but when I'm staring at a fridge full (or not so full!) of food it helps me whip something up. I'm not that creative

be careful - that's not enough calories for ME to live on much less a man of (i'm guessing) more substantial size...don't cut back too much!

Sometimes size matters, sometimes it don't ;\) I'm always really, really hot and he's always really, really distracted by it.

We buy the variety pack Popsicles/Fudgcicles/Creamsicles for killing the after dinner sweet tooth for 60 calories or less! I try to snack on fruits and veggies but if I desperately need to feel like I'm being bad, an English muffin pizza usually does the trick (I used diced, canned tomatoes instead of sauce). Also, frozen fruit (1/4-1/2 c.) with 1/2 c. low-fat vanilla yogurt.

Thanks for the ideas everyone...and good job....I've lost about 10lbs so far and am looking to shed about 20 more...The key really is plenty of exercise and eating right...

I eat a lot of cereal...Not the sugar loaded kind..It seems to work for me....

I have a tendency to eat a lot of cup-o-soup at work too and I'm wondering if I should quit that because of the sodium....

Soup is tricky because it's light and filling, but full of sodium. You can look for reduced sodium soups and increase the amount of water you drink. And I make a lot of soup - a bunch of frozen veggies, a couple of cans of beans, and some low-sodium chicken broth is soup for the week! I love soup and cereal for meals and snacks. The organics section at our grocery store has lots of great boxed organic soups - Pacific Naturals, I think is the brand, and I love them.

Thanks PT...I've just started to get interested in the organic section at the store...and Della, I will look for the low sodium soup...

I think one of the hardest foods for me to give up is going to be cheese....I could live on it...Although, I have been doing pretty good "saying no"......

I have one day a week and that is usually Sundays.. I will allow myself to eat anything I want...It just makes me want to push harder at Monday's exercise session...

Me too. Cheese and bread. So hard to give up!

I hear ya sista!!!!! I've been trying to go with the hard cheeses...Like extra sharp white cheddar or even a good quality ghouda...I miss the jack and colby but it will be there when I want a treat...

I also used to drink wine with my cheese especially this time of year and the wine is no good when your trying to diet either...

Lately, I have been very careful with the portions of cheese I do eat...(a little here and a little there)..I also stepped away from the wine which was hard...

Now, I'll either drink coffee in the evening, my home brewed fennel/anice tea or if I do want to have a drink, I'll usually have a vodka and diet 7 up...

I definitely recommend the organics section and getting into the stuff there, trying new things. I love, love, love Silk Soy creamer in my coffee (nice alternative to the soy lattes that eat 120-200 calories per to-go serving). I think all of the Kashi cereals are incredible, especially Autumn Harvest. We use Muir Glen fire-roasted tomatoes instead of regular canned tomatoes a lot of times when we want a little more flavor, and I also love the Annie's mac n' cheese instead of Kraft.

We almost always have a bowl of tomato/cucumber/onion salad w/ low-fat italian dressing in the fridge - good for snacking. Sometimes I throw in a few croutons too. Another great veggie snack is asparagus sprinkled w/ bread crumbs and coated w/ just a bit of olive oil, baked at 400 for about 15 minutes. Nice as a side dish or to grab out of the fridge and re-heat or eat cold.

Bite-size shredded wheat in a baggie with a little Splenda. Just give a shake and satisfies carb and sweet cravings without salt or sugar. Pre-portion what you take with you for snack at work.
