I made a change to my way of eating in early October 2017. I was skeptical but I had read an article in a magazine about a woman who had lost 100+ pounds by using protein shakes. I had some protein powder on hand and thought I would give It a go. I really liked the taste of the powder and it really filled me up. The article included a menu plan and I have been following it about 95% of the time. We travel a lot on the weekends and I take as many snacks as I can along with us. The menu plan is a protein smoothie for breakfast, 100 calorie snack, protein shake for lunch, 100 calorie snack and a sensible dinner. I eat around 1,200 calories a day. When I started out on this WOE, I didn't think I would stay on this plan for long. Lose a bit and then transition to healthy meals again. But the ease of the smoothies/shakes and snacks and the meals are addictive! I don't have to spend a lot of time planning for 3 meals a day and I love that.
About a month ago, I started reading about the Keto diet. I have incorporated those meals into our diet and rarely get over 20 carbs a day. I think this is helping us lose the weight. Even my 7 year old is in LOVE with "taco" salad. It's a lettuce salad with hamburger, cheese, ranch and a few tortilla chips broken up on top. He thinks it's "DELICIOUS"!
Just thought I would share this in case someone was interested in how I am losing.
I am down 46 pounds in 5 months and the first of March started doing Walk Away the Pounds 5 days a week.
It's working for me!!
