Sample day

Thanks for all the kudos, everyone!

Well, Beth asked me to post a sample day, so I'll go ahead and do that. But first, a disclaimer: I am pretty early in my weight loss journey. I have a lot to lose still, so I am still seeing a loss even though I probably don't eat as well as most of you. To put it into perspective, I am still well over 200lbs and have probably 70lbs + to go. That being said, here's a typical day for me on the BFC:

Breakfast: English muffin (buttered), 1 egg scrambled
Snack: 1 carb's worth of something (with 1g max of sugar), a few sunflower seeds or peanuts.
Lunch: Leftovers from last night's dinner (1 carb, meat and veggies)
Dinner: 1 carb, meat and veggies. We do things like meat and potatoes, tostadas, etc. I just make sure to eat a little carb. I generally cook low fat (Thanks for the good habits, Mom!), and I never have added sweeteners to sauces or anything.
Dessert: Dark chocolate and Reddi Whip-- YUM!

So, that's about it! It's not fancy, but it's doable for us.

Anyway, I hope you're all having a great weekend! Keep BFC'in!

Sounds like a great sample day! I'd have good results on that menu, too. ;)

Barb, thank you for posting a food sample! And Wow, i think you are eating pretty darn good! No wonder you are losing so well!! I had something for breakfast the last couple days that you might like, it was french toast made out of the Ezekiel bread. I dipped two pieces in some egg mixed with cream and fried it in a little bit of butter. St. Joseph's syrup on top and some sausage on the side and it was really good!
