Welcome to fitday!

Diet tips:

Get a food scale and weigh your portions. Use measuring cups/spoons for everything.

Including protein or fat at every meal/snack will make it much more satisfying to your hunger.

Drink water and green tea instead of soda and coffee (even if its diet.)

And a meal suggestion: I will share with you my favorite breakfast, this one keeps me full for hours and it puts egg mcmuffins to shame.

1 whole grain english muffin
1 large egg scrambled (with water)
2 oz sliced ham (I get the maple flavored, its tremendous)
1 american cheese single

*Combine these ingredients to make a sandwich

I eat this scrambled egg, ham, and cheese muffin with a whole orange and one cup of skim milk.

You could use bread but the english muffins have significantly lower carb/cal totals

It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself. ~Muhammad Ali

You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. ~Charles C. Noble
