now i eat u know small meals or wha eva thoughout the day i just need ideas on wha i can put here that is quick and easy 2 put.. sum of my meals arnt so bad...like the cereal... sandwhiches...its after gym and the rest of the day where it dont look good... i am losing weight lol cuz my pants keep fallin lol so thats good...and im a 5X shirt now lol yay! lol (use to be 8 then 6 so...its exciting lol).. and im weaing a size 48 pants...

I would increase the amount of protein and maybe go with oats instead of cereal, or at least choose a cereal that is a little lower in cals. You could also throw in some fat with this meal.



.go to class workout then 2nd class then at 10 have either couple turkey sandwhiches...


Might try throwing in a protein shake and some carbs (banana maybe?) somewhere around your workout, so as to get a few carbs and protein in your system. The turkey sandwiches sound fine.



but and i had quit it but latly after gym i have ben drinkin coke again :(... or when i get home i get a coke on the way home......

This is probably just a mental thing, and it is something that you will have to work on. Once you get used to having something you will get cravings for that particular food. I would just try switching to diet, and soon you will become used to it. There are many choices, as far as diet sodas, so I feel sure that you can find something you like.



after that around 12 or 1 i have normally like a plate of rice and a steak and sum skim milk or water... then before work ill have double cheese burger with small fries and i ben tryn to get small diet coke but sumtimes its reg. coke..thats around 3 to 3:30...

What about making up some more sandwiches instead of going out and getting fries and a burger? Maybe make up some peanut butter sandwiches and have a glass of milk, which should also help keep your appetite down.



then go to work... have a break at 6...drink a coke ... have dinner at 8 which i bring 2 of those lil ravioli cups u can heat up... and maybe a bread roll and coke or water depends on how i feel... then thats about it... if i dont have the coke at 6 ill have it at 11(anoither break) or just get home and have sumthing or not...depends if im sleepy or not


Cut out the coke:)

I think with a little more planning you could improve upon your food choices. Whenever you are cooking your steak and rice meal just cook a little extra and throw it in a tupperware container so that you have a healthy meal at work.



i was not drinking coke but i just started so i dont think it should be a prob...but im worried if bradley or doc or sumone can tell me if its cuz i need more foods at diff times or sumthing thats makin me want sugar(coke)? if i had quit it...

You might also consider increasing your fat and fiber intake which can also curb appetite, and make sure you are drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

I think the coke dilemma is more mental than physical, and get easier to drink diet after you make the initial transition.

No problem, now quit drinking the coke.;)

A bowl of whole grain cereal and a shake would be fine or a sandwich, and you might try different foods so you can judge what helps keep your appetite down the best.

Keep us informed on the progress.:)
