    Hello everyone

    i found this site on a random search for omelete recipes and liked the look of it so thought i would register :)

    decided i got to alter what i eat if i ever want to feel better and lose weight so thought signing up somewhere would help cause i can get advice and suggestions :)

    my current goal is so lose 100 lbs, big goal i know but i will get there with strength and hard work :)

    joining the gym tomorrow and im going to be going every day, even the days i dont feel like it i will make myself go. no more take aways or fast food on the way home from work or bacon sandwiches for my lunch, will be using my steamer more and also making pasta to take to work with me :)

    if anyone out there has any good ideas on meals for just 1 person i can make for myself that is healthy to eat at home and take to work with me (has to be cold since there is no microwave or anything there) i will love you forever :) i have a steamer, slow cooker, an oven and a microwave at home. my deep fat fryer had a little 'accident' and fell into the garbage so no more of that teehee

    Hello nixxy. I am impressed with your good intentions to lose extra weight. Actually I find your plan rather restrictive. Of course this is my personal view. Your thoughts, feelings and actions will define the end result. I wish you the best!
    There is something I'd like to ask: how would you describe your relationship with food all these years?

    Hi nixxy,

    Good on you for getting into a great state of mind! I lived on my own for a bit and found that turkey breast/steaks was a life saver, its lean and really good for you. You can use it just like chicken in most dishes or just have it with healthy fry-light chips. Its great with a couple laughing cow extra light cheese triangles, sliced peppers, some fresh cracked black pepper and mixed with pasta. Its also great for leftovers and have it for lunch!

    I love cooking and creating healthy recipes or testing them out from recipe books :)

    Hey Nixxy sounds like a great plan you have there. My problem is take aways and coke so planning to give them up but I'm not that much into cooking (even though I worked as a chef once!) which maybe a problem sadly but I'll give it a whirl :)

    How did you get on at the gym. I think that's something I'll have to do eventually but I think I want to get the good side up and running first.

    Good luck with it all

    Zechti's point with chicken and turkey is fine and well tested. Another one is Salmon. Salmon is an excellent source of lean protein and a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which may helpaid weight loss by improving glucose sensitivity, reducing insulinresistance, reducing inflammation, and speeding up the oxidation offat. For a more satiating meal, serve the fish alongside roastedvegetables (artichokes, spinach, or broccoli, which all provide extra fiber). Just my 2 cents!
