I take a chewable iron tablet and 2 Marlyn Formula 50 (for hair and nails) before bed, but I swallow it whole because the iron stains my teeth. In the morning I take 2 Marlyn Formula 50, centrum silver multi, sublingual B12, D3 5000 IU, calcium 500 mg, and then another 4 calcium per day separated by 2 hours, so I am done with the calcium by 2pm as my iron will not absorb with the calcium I have to save the iron for bedtime. Then I have cottage cheese and a small apple, banana, or some mango for breakfast every day. Every day for lunch I have an omelet made with egg whites, laughing cow low fat cheese, onions, bell peppers, and turkey bacon or turkey sausage, sometimes I supplement my omelet with a salad of spring mix and whatever veggies I have time to cut up, sunflower seeds sprinkled on top with balsamic vinegar. Dinner is usually a high protein almond mocha smoothie. This rarely varies during the week. On the weekend I get off track and rarely eat anything until I am hungry. For me, eating the same thing everyday simplifies my life and keeps my diet in check. I so try to eat tuna or salmon on the weekend, and might even grill a nice new York strip. My diet consumes a lot of my thought because I have always had to struggle to maintain a healthy weight. I have no metabolism. I took a good jog with my dog this morning, it felt great after being sick for 3 weeks with bronchitis. Wow, this is a long post.

Yesterday I had a scrambled egg with pieces of sharp cheese melted in, and cantaloupe chunks; for lunch a leftover kidney bean burger open face sandwich; for supper green bean and ham stew with potatoes, carrots and onions; for dessert a vanilla cookie with milk chocolate icing. During the day weak ice tea to drink.

Valerie - I love cottage cheese, it is so tasty and good for you. Omelets are great too! And the fish on weekends is awesome, for those omega-3 oils.

I am a firm believer in healthy routine. If you get a healthy routine, you're less likely to go for unhealthy things because they're "easy". I have my EAS protein shake every morning, my very veggie salad most lunches, and then a random protein-veggie combo for dinner depending on what Bob is making.

You are doing awesome!

Valerie - it's OK if you don't want to answer this, but were you heavy as a child? Studies are now showing that your body creates a "set point" at your heaviest level. It assumes that is your normal final state and, if you then lose weight, it assumes you're sick and tries to get you back to that point.

That is, if you were always slender, your body assumes being slender is great and it doesn't push you to change.

If at one point you were heavy, and you then became slender, your body assumes being slender is "awful" and it tries its best to gain weight.

This is actual results of studies they are doing. So it sucks, but it's good to be aware of it.

I still have no ranch dressing so lunch is a spinach-artichoke dip. Sort of like eating saag. Tasty!

Bob just came home so I might get something else too.

What are you guys eating?
