I've been on a diet since the end of February and have lost 45 lbs so far. I'm super psyched about it and could keep going how I've been for longer I'm sure.
I've been eating about 1200 calories a day with my secret weapon being oatmeal, eating 100 calorie servings several times a day.
Other foods that have been a staple in this 'diet' are:
Fiber One bars and cereal.
Dannon Light and Fit yogurt.
Low-sodium turkey lunch meat.
Obviously fruits and vegetables and tons of water (and crystal light)
I never 'gave up' any particular foods, I just keep a food journal and count up to 1200 calories every day. So if I splurge it just counts against my days calories. Therefore, I generally don't eat splurge-y foods.
So I'm wondering, for the low-calorie diet followers out there... what do you suggest in order to make the most out of my 1200 calories a day. Any personal favorites or 'secret weapons'?
