25 lbs in 3 months…. Here is what I am eating-

I shop at WinCo (makes a difference what you find at which stores)…. and I have had a few people asking me what I am eating (since dropping 25 lbs in 3 months!).  I also exercise 5 days a week for 40-50 minutes.


Here is my top 10 list in each category:

Supplements: (once daily)
1 multi-vitamin/mineral supplement prescribed by my dr.
2 flax seed Omega 3 oil capsules

Veggies: (4 servings a day- a serving is 1/2 cooked, 1 c raw)
Broccoli
Green beans
Baby Spinach leaves
Bell Peppers
Cucumbers
Tomatoes (incl. Salsa)
Mixed Salads
Carrots
Peas
Artichokes/hearts

Fruits: (3 servings a day- a serving is a small piece, 1/2 c cooked/processed, or 1 cup raw)
Apples/applesauce
Oranges
Watermelon/Cantaloupe
Strawberries
Kiwi
Pineapple
Bananas
Grapes
Pears
Peaches

Grains: (5-8 servings a day- a serving is 1/2-1 c. cooked or 1-2 oz dry weight, 1 slice bread)

Whole Grains: Wheat bran and Quinoa are very high in protein

Treats: 
Yes, despite what the MD says, I still have treats! Usually once a week I have a small prepared treat (like a candy, cookie, cake, etc)- but almost daily I have a few mini m&ms or semi-sweet chocolate chips.

What to drink???
WATER- 70 oz a day
