I understand the fear of trying new things. You cannot dump on meats though. They might not agree with you but you can only dump on sugar, and even then, not everyone does.
I am not a huge yogurt fan either, but after having it for so long after surgery (i eat about one a day, doctored up of course), i don't mind them now. Just took a bit of getting used to. I still don't like regular yogurt, but don't mind the greek.
if you don't mind doing shakes of any kind, you could try putting in a fraction of the protein powder. I do green smoothies every morning and put in 1/4 scoop of protein powder. it's not a lot of extra, but every little bit helps.
i also use the syntrax matrix cookies and cream. it's a bit higher in calories and isn't pure isolate, but i enjoy it.
plain fat free greek yogurt - i mix with a packet of crystal light. big bang for buck protein wise
canned chicken or tuna (went down easier for me)
400-500 calories doesn't seem like enough at 4 months out though.
nemo came through here yesterday, and made driving home from work awful. we aren't getting hit as hard as other areas and we didn't lose power this time. just lots of snow. it's still snowing now, but it's light. i'm trying to decide if i want to head out anywhere today or not.
i love bacon, but the thought of drinking bacon just doesn't appeal to me at all. i wouldn't want to drink french toast either. i would have to use it in a baked dish of some kind. now maybe in a baked oatmeal.
i've done a meat crust, i've done cauliflower crust (my fav!). But I think what you are talking about is where you take a non stick pan (i still spray it a bit with pam), add an ounce or so of cheese and let it melt and cook. you filp it when it's crusty and then cook the other side. then you top with sauce and whatever other toppings you want.
This is my take on it too. The 140 pounds of extra fat I had was clearly seen to everyone. I do have some saggy skin on my arms and stomach and I do want plastics, but if I never got it, it wouldn't be an issue, it's not saggy enough to cause rashes or anything, I just want to feel comfortable wearing a tank top in the summer.
I had similar problems when I first went to buy clothes after dropping a bunch of weight. The whole process was just overwhelming. Now that I have had time to settle into my new body and I'm losing at a much slower rate, I know what size I wear and what I like. But it took some time to get there.
i eat a small banana almost every day. i would eat them plain and not use brown sugar. they do tend to be higher in sugar, but it's natural and not added. i don't really eat any foods with added sugar in it.
depending on what sorts of proteins you are eating, there can be hidden gluten. I know that many brands of hot dogs, etc are not gluten free. Not that hot dogs are awesome, but most wouldn't think to look there for gluten.
I'm also curious though why he recommends gluten free. I can understand trying to not have baked products, but they aren't the same.
we were warned that it can take up to a month for things to be finalized from the psych. We had a list we had to choose from on who to go too, and some were longer then others. I was lucky, mine only took a few days.
the computers, video games, 100's of tv channels, etc, really are a more recent development, and I totally think that plays a big role. However, the reason my kids don't go and play outside all day long like I did when I was a kid has more to do with safety then technology. We live in a safe neighborhood, but I still won't let her ride around unsupervised all the time like I grew up doing, it's just a different world. I think that has a larger impact. It's tougher to keep them more active as a result.
Very adorable picture!
i use almond milk all the time, regular milk has always bothered me. i do use the unsweetened vanilla. it's way less calories and since i'm making it in a shake, the difference with protein isn't really that huge. you could always add just a bit more powder.
mine required the use of it for compliance prior to surgery. and i needed to bring it to the hospital or they wouldn't operate. something about the risks of being under for surgery are increased if you have untreated apnea
