On Sunday, I restarted my diet plan that worked so well for me in 2011. From January through August that year, I lost 28 pounds by cutting carbohydrate foods, other than beans, for six days a week. That means, no pasta, no rice, no bread, no fruit, no dairy products other than cottage cheese. I ate lots of eggs, veggies, and meat, as well as beans in moderation. And I drank lots of and lots of water.
And then one day a week, I ate whatever I wanted.
So I'll be back on that... which means I have to menu plan even more! No making a pot of spaghetti on a day when I haven't had much time to think, much less cook.
Here's the plan:
Monday - New Year's Eve dinner: Balsamic Chicken, pasta for the kids, salad
Tuesday - baked salmon over salad greens
Wednesday - Chicken with Snow Peas
Thursday - 3 Can Veggie Chili (with pasta for the kids)
Friday - roasted chicken, salad, challah
Saturday - Carbs time! Pasta alfredo, Caesar salad, garlic bread
Sunday - take out salads
