Hey Tom. Thanks!
I was (am) shocked by this because I didn't realize how many carbs I was really eating. My diet used to look like this:
Breakfast: cereal or eggs with toast and jelly
Lunch: Sandwich and soup with maybe some chips.
Dinner: Spaghetti with bread / butter or some kind of fake soy meat with veggies.
(of course there were also the random doughnuts, cakes, and other sugary items thrown in there)
Now it's more like:
Breakfast: veggie omlette with cheese
Lunch: Salad with veggies and cheese
Snack: Yogurt with berries or a protein smoothie
Dinner: Mahi Mahi, side of roasted veggies with a loaded baked potato
Those changes alone have made a huge difference. I'm cautiously optomistic that the weight loss will continue on this path but I know eventually it will slow. ...Although, it has given me quite a boost in motivation!
