I'm 68 years old; never had a weight problem, and figured I'd put some of the methods I've used right here to help others. I love to exercise to music which is why you've got some 'upbeat' (and free) music to work out with. Recipes are sprinkled here and there; most of them are at the bottom of this blog - easy; economical, and healthy. Enjoy. Diane
Roast a chicken. When done, pull apart and divide
into 2 ounce portions (remove skin). Saute 1 cup of cut-up tomatoes (or
slit and saute one cup of cherry tomatoes) with garlic (crushed) to taste.
Add fresh basil; a small amount of oregano (to taste), then add the chicken and
Boil two ounces of your favorite pasta; add 1 T. of
olive oil to the water and plenty of salt to flavor. Drain cooked pasta;
toss with the chicken, tomatoes and basil. Sprinkle lightlly with Parmesan
or Asiago cheese. Not costly; about 400 calories per serving.
If you're 200 pounds (x) 8 = 1600 calories/day = lose safely.
