New cooking ideas, im running out

Well I know its been a long time since I posted a blog, but I have been really busy and just really didn't know what to blog about in recent times.  But Friday I ordered a new cookbook to help me with some more low calorie healthy recipes.  (still staying on the low sugar side or subbing a BFC sugar approved sub in place of real sugar)  I ordered the Betty Crocker 300 Calorie Cookbook that I saw in a Women's Day magazine last month.  Its has some really yummy ideas that I wanted to try.

I wanted to share this idea with everyone.  And I thought it might be fun if everyone else shared some ideas for coming up with new things to eat so this diet doesn't get to boring.  

What is everyone's most common three meals they eat?  I heard its good to eat basically the same sorta of things for breakfast and lunch everyday and then toss up a difference with dinner.  Anyone else heard this?  Like for example if you eat eggs each day that should be your breakfast, and if you like tuna salad each day that should be your basic lunch....I mean I know you can toss it up a bit, but it just helps your body stay stable or something I guess.  I am no expert that is why I ask this question.

Please share your food ideas.  We can all help one another by sharing. :)

Thank you and everyone keep up the good work!!

Hungry Girl Recipes


Anyone heard of Hungry Girl?  She has some great recipes listed on her site.  Like swap this for something you like and she shows you exactly what to substitute.  I know most of my fellow bloggers are following the BFC, but you can use several of her recipes on this particular diet as well because we know what ingredients we can have and not have.  But I thought it was pretty interesting when I came across this site looking for new recipes to try and thought I would share with everyone.

Tried the Dukan Diet but back to BFC

Okay everyone, its been a while since I blogged but I didn't have much to write about because I wasn't following my diet to well so I didn't want to share my downfalls and cheats with everyone to make them feel down.  But anyways I tried again to go back on a diet and did the Dukan Diet for a day or two and I just have to say even though it claims that you will lose weight fast in the attack phase....its quite hard to keep on because it took away all of my energy.  I thought I could just do the attack phase for 10 days like it stated to jump start my weight lose and lose the 10lbs. but after a day or two I was so weak, tired, and had a major headache from just eating fat free diary and high amounts of protein.  So my mind has been made up, that BFC is by far the best diet overall because its healthy and its learning a healthy way of eating for life not all these different phases.  I am going to stop trying all these diets and just put my foot down and know that this is beneficial for my over all health.
