7.2 lbs GONE!!!!!

At least the digital scale worked in my
favor this AM 162.8 12.8 more to
my goal.

Got some tahini yesterday-interesting in that the fat
content was a high as it was. I'm assuming it's the
seed/nut kind of fat - the good kind? I used less than
a teaspoon of it on the brussel spouts and it's tasty!!
I can totally taste it on cauliflower -that would be yummy.
What else could it be used on?

Also saw Dr Oz is endorsing chia seeds and I saw someone
post a recipe with them in it. Any thoughts? I also have
some Quinoa at home and haven't used it yet. Should I
think of that instead of rice? Does it have the same slow
digestion like oatmeal or should I be watching the time of
day that I would eat it?

Sorry, lot's of questions today. Just looking for more
variety to keep moving forward

BOSS!!!

Quinoa is an awesome grain. I cook it when I make salmon and greens. You can eat it for dinner for sure. As far as chia seeds... never used them, and don't know a terrible amount about them.

Great news Becky. I take it you've been keeping your cals and macro's in check.

Sesami tahini is very high in cals and it's almost all fat cals but, yes, they are good fats. It also has protein, calcium, vitamin's E and B. Because of the high fat and cals you must only use small amounts, just add it in to your macro counts and you will be fine. It can be used on many different veggies and is the main ingredient in Humus, that is why Humus is considered healthy. As I mentioned before you can try this, get a liitle garlic salt or mashed garlic, lemon juice and a tiny bit of olive oil(a little water if you want to thin it out) and it's quite tasty. You can also get some Joseph's oat bran, flax seed and wheat pita bread(very low carb and healthy) sepearate the loaf and spread a small amount of the tahini mixture above on it, I usually put it in the oven so it gets crunchy, it is kinda like garlic bread. Just don't go crazy with it but it is quite flavorful so you don't need much anyways.

Dr Oz doesn't actually endorse to many products, if it's on a web site it is not an endorsment by him. Anyways don't waste your time, many of these miracle foods are bull, they usually do contain small amounts of useful nutrients but not near enough to be of any benefit.

Quinoa is an excellent substitute for rice. It is the only non animal protein that is a complete protein. It is a good source of fiber as well. It is high in carbs so again fit it into your daily allowance and your good.

Thanks for the info. I forgot about the "garlic bread". Is there a decent pasta that's good for a healty diet? When I think of garlic toast I always think of spaghetti- can that be made to work into the diet without blowing
everything?

There are whole wheat pasta's that can be used, again portion size is important and as always, as long as you don't exceed your macro's you're ok. I often have previously prepared meals that are 1 cup whole wheat pasta and three of the high protein meatballs I posted the recipie for. Again starchy complex carbs should be somewhat likited and best eaten earlier in the day, for example lunch.

Previously prepared spaghetti is one of my very favorites!
I'll look for the meatballs and use that instead of ground
beef and that will help

Turkey meatballs or the recipe I posted for turkey and chicken meatballs are a much better choice than beef much lower in saturated fat you can also find whole wheat pasta in a lower glycemic version which is beste

Thought I'd give an update. I'm now down 3.5 lbs and keeping calories around 1500. After the snow storm yesterday I still had 1000 calories allowed after punching in 4 hours of snow shovelling lol, but I was satisfied with the 1500 total I had taken in.
My poor Camaro got buried after I got to work yesterday lol not post related but thought I'd share where some of my burned calories went lol
