Good Job RK! my doc says I need to do something also. My problem is I love cooking.... and eating.
THE OLD WAY:
I'd cook a tray of baked chicken breasts in the oven -
eat one and put the rest in the frig for the following meals.
Having the food in the frig left me open for snacking on it,
Usually eating more than one.
I de-bone one breast, I take a med/large yellow/brown onion
cook the onion first, cook until brown and candied - gooey -
Add the de-boned and cubed chicken breast into the pan with the onion
cook until all the meat turns a nice white, careful not to overcook - it gets rubbery.
I only eat what I prepare making one meal at a time keeps me from eating more/too much.
During the loosing cycle you stay away from all carbs,
During the maintenance cycle you can add a small amount of rice -what ever your pref.
You love to cook, think of ways you can get the NATURAL PROTEIN in meats into your diet.
Keep the fat content low to loose wt.
I use olive oil exclusively to cook, except a small pat of butter to cook my eggs.
I had steak and eggs for dinner last night, with a second steak because I missed actual dinner.
no rice, no veggies, no nonsense. High protein little to no fat, no carbs.
You eat like this for a couple weeks - you'll be 10-20 pounds lighter.
I eat 4 times a day all high protein meals.
The old saying: "You are what you eat" could not be more true.
Low fat high protein, think of a LION - mean and lean, meat eater!!
