    yes i typically eat like Julie does... it takes awhile to get used to it but he body does.. and i found one.. It really helps keep the blood sugar on an even keel.. which keeps my temperment on an even keep BECAUSE there are no dips in blodd sugar.. It really does help irradicate cravings...

    I also went back over your food tracker.. and i know you've mentioned before that your husband comes home on the weekends and you lose track of portion control.. During the week are you sure you're not portioning yourself the amount you'd give the kids? o rule of thumb with portion sizes are the size of your palm for meats... i know they have a guide here on spark people.. but if you compare your children's palm size to that of your's... you could be short changing yourself... I also recommend for the next month.. actually using measuring cups so you can see literally how much you're eating.. you could be over or undereating on lots of things...

    other suggestions for salads.. i know the spark recommend serving size is 1.5 cups... i've added chick peas or butter beans(rinsed alot) on top, i have a fav trail mix that i've added on top, drained canned tuna is a good source of protein...

    Like Julie...feel free to look at my food an exercise tracker at any time.. I find looking at others really does help give ideas on what to eat to help balance out during the day. Good luck! emoticon

    After looking at your food tracker for yesterday, here are some thoughts to increase your caloric intake...

    Breakfast: Add in some fruit and/or lean protein...maybe make a smoothie with some Greek yogurt (with the oatmeal) or make an omelet with lots of veggies and whole wheat toast (instead of the oatmeal)

    Lunch: Have a bigger salad, 1C is really not that much and add on lots of extra veggies (peppers and tomatoes are some of my favs) or even some fruit. You could also add some beans to fill it out a bit.

    Dinner: 2 oz of ground beef is slim, even for me-I usually have 4-5. Also, I didn't see any veggies at dinner except for some salsa. emoticon They really do make a difference.

    You could also try to add in another snack...maybe a Kashi bar or some other easy, dense (but healthy food).

    I generally eat 5 times/day (7,10, 12, 4, 7 ish). Feel free to browse my trackers and check out where I get my calories from, you might get some fun new ideas. I probably require less calories than you though, so do keep that in mind, but I eat right in the middle of my range most days and I have been pretty successful.

    Good Luck!

    yes i've totally agree with that... you need to eat within those ranges to help make sure your body has the proper fuel...and instead of a cupcake.. try some whole grain breads and pasta...they're really help.

    I do know that if you eat under your recommended range - it can stall your weight loss. Seems like a backward concept - but it is true.
