When I first started my diet (almost 3 months now), I was eating mostly salads with chicken and lite dressing. I was wondering how would I be able to stay on this diet if I don't eat more than just that. Then I found Lean Cuisine (also Lean Cafe by Walmart). There are pizzas, dips and pita bread, comfort foods, steamers, paninis, and lots of them. Wish they would make a dessert also. So to make sure I get the calories I need (1200-1500), I make sure I eat one of the higher calorie ones during the day. Most Lean Cuisine is about 250 calories but the Paninis and pizzas are 350. So now I have a large assortment to choose from and won't get bored with the food. Since I started my diet I am now off my diabetes and blood pressure meds. The doctors say I'm doing well and put me on vitamins with iron to make sure I get all the nutrients I need.
The main thing is DO NOT GET STRESSED! If you make a mistake let it go and learn from it. Don't beat yourself up over it, learn from it. Remember STRESSED SPELLED BACKWARDS IS DESSERTS.
