So I'm going to say it

...I need to say it.  On this blog.  So I will do it.  Plan for March?  Lose these pesky 5lbs before races start in April. 

Ok.  I said it.  And now I have to really watch what I eat.  Any pointers?

I've had luck lately with eating chia seeds. Two tablespoons followed by a large glass of water first thing in the AM and then couple times a day Keeps me full longer than just water. and my friends and I joke about the ambien diet, going to bed hungry and taking an ambien so you can sleep through the night. But really we just joke about it.

Eat whatever you want for breakfast, but not refined carbs. Potatoes and eggs are cool...then eat a big salad filled with olives, avocado, and nuts for lunch. @ dinner eat grilled lean meat and one heaping green veggie serving (steamed or grilled). Yeah, dinner will be boring, but adding olives and avocado adds some flavor.

Drink 100 oz of water every day. For me, this was gauranteed weight loss. I dropped 8 pounds rather quickly doing this.

Oh, and I found that by dropping all refined carbs made my body suddenly shed 3 lbs of water weight. I think its the inflamation is causes?

Big J isn't allowed to cook fried seafood (refer to picture in your last post, LOL!) until after tri season is over.

Up the lean protein, drop the starchy carbs, always works wonders for me.

Lean protein and green veggies that are high in fiber

I just wrote a post about what I've learned about healthy eating from working at a weight management center. Might be helpful:

greek yogurt, fruit, and joseph wraps (substitute for bread)

Lots of water and spinach/fruit smoothies in the AM help me. Although I am probably not the best person to comment becuase i am sitting at my desk eating twizzlers and peanut m&ms

Katie said...

guh. i'm no good at this, but protein-heavy minimeals early in the day seems to help me. ditto the midafternoon munchies.

Well, I need to loose 10, we should have a blogger biggest loser. ha

I like the suggestions thusfar!

Of course, I have a thousand! Where do you want to start :) A few quick ones - um...you probably won't like it, but it so works! More fruits and veggies. Make sure you have breakfast (include some protein and fiber so you stay full). Have a salad or broth soup before a big meal to cut calories! Watch your portion sizes.. um.. where to stop!! You can do it!! We believe in you!

Right there w ya! I just started trying to get rid of the 7 that creeped up since September... I started off w a detox of basically no wheat, no dairy, no meat, no alcohol no caffeine - it's not bad and usually gets me jump started w at least 3 lbs for the week and then alter it from there adding stuff in slowly...

Fiber, lean protein and water. If you don't drink enough water your liver ends up doing the work the kidneys are suppose to do so then it can't be king of the metabolism. :-) You'll be great. Can't wait to see you race this yr!!!
