So, to explain why I seem to have little time. Husband deployed. I have a toddler, and 4 month old. And I work from home. Eggs seem to be my go to. They are quick, and easy to add things too. The problem is. I am sooooo over eggs now! What are your super quick meal go to's? This weekend I plan on meal prepping and planning. But am looking for inspiration in case I forget to pull out the prepped freezer meal.
I'm kicking off my first Whole30 November 1st, and I know that work will be a minefield. I'm a creative at an advertising agency and typically work long, erratic hours. We have loads of cheese, bread and fruit in the kitchen at all times, but obviously that's out of bounds. I'm already in the habit of bringing lunch to work - typically leftovers from dinner. What I'm after are well-balanced, make ahead snacks/mini meals to keep on hand for when hanger strikes. As an aside I can see avoiding snacking being a major, major issue because I am hungry all. The. Goddamn. Time. Seriously, my fiance jokes that I have a bottomless stomach. This wasn't such an issue when I was younger and my weight hovered around 50-52kg at all times, but now I'm 30 and my weight has crept up to 61. Still a 'technically' healthy BMI, but a totally unacceptable weight gain regardless. I'm actually super anxious about dealing with my endless hunger during the Whole30.
Hi All, I'm technically not on a whole 30 right now, but living by whole 9 rules. I am at this point debating to start eating a mini meal. Here's the problem: I have been pretty much eating the same amounts of food for the last year and I haven't had a huge problem with hunger in the afternoon. But for the last 2 - 3 weeks come 4 o'clock I am famished! I have tried to add more onto my meal 1 and 2 but I'm generally already stuffed. But come 4 pm I am hungry again! I'm not terribly active, I do try and do something active twice a week. Sometimes it's more intense than others. I have a desk job. And although I wasn't doing this initially for weight loss, the weight loss success I did have has stalled. I have chalked that up to possibly needing to add some more intense excersise. But now I'm wondering..... Do I need to eat more in order to start losing again? I am a 5' 9", 225lb (down from 255), 37 yo woman. I have a pretty large bone structure (example: I lost 30lbs and am only down 1 dress size) Here's and example of what I eat: Yesterday Meal 1: 2 eggs cooked omelete style in CO, 1 cup and a half of steamed broccoli drizzled with EVOO. Strawberries Kept me full until 11:30 Meal 2: Mixed Green Salad with canned tuna in oil, Tessemae's dressing, baby carrots dipped in almond butter/mayo/coconut amino mix. Apple. a couple of date rolls (I know - sugar bombs) Super Hungry at 4 pm. Didn't eat until 7:45. Meal 3: 3" Lamb Kefta meat ball, marinara sauce, spaghetti squash, grapes evening snack: Peach Today Meal 1: 2 eggs + 3/4 cup of shredded sweet potato cooked in CO. (This was a little on the light side. I could have eaten more I think) Strawberries Meal 2: 3" Lamb Kefta meat ball, marinara sauce, spaghetti squash, peach, 2 date rolls (they're finished now thank goodness.) It's 5 pm now and I'm absolutely famished. So because I would like to continue to loose weight I'm kind of scared of adding more food in. Especially since I did so well this past year. I have started drinking more as well, knowing that I wasn't drinking enough previously. But still hasn't helped. Ideas?
