You need to have protein for breakfast. Real protein - not protein bars or protein powders.
If you're not capable of boiling an egg by yourself, ask your mother to prepare a half-dozen boiled eggs for you every 2 or 3 days. You can have a hard-boiled egg and a small piece of fruit for breakfast. One of the other hard-boiled eggs can be a snack at some other time in the day.
I'm surprised that you're as old as you are and completely unable to cook for yourself.
Perhaps you should look into taking a healthy cooking class over the summer.
no mac n cheese unless you're making it from scratch with real cheese and milk and whole grain pasta
how many hours a day are you exercising?
I'm glad somebody besides me is onto the commerical breakfast cereals.
As far as granola and other bars are concerned, South Beach may not be great, but they're head and shoulders above the others.
You're 15 and your parents don't let you cook? Not even an omelet? I've been cooking omelets since I was 10. Why do your parents treat you like a baby? Are you irresponsible or do you have other issues that keep you from behaving more grown-up?
By the way, I said you should be tested for hypoglycemia and that means you should not
eat sugar because it makes you hungry. You also should also not
eat Mac&Cheese if you want to lose weight. Like I said, go for a long walk everyday for exercise and stop eating processed food.
I don't have a pool or any close... I'm just going to lose the weight so eventually I can lose weight.
Good for her!!~~ My parents are strict about cooking home alone so I'm better off sticking with simple, easy stuff.
I NEVER SAID I HAVE BEEN MAKING MAC N CHEESE FOR MYSELF NOW THAT I STARTED A DIETING... I was telling you my parents wouldnt even let me make mac n cheese because they didnt want the house burnt down in general. I was showing how strict they are about it.
Can I have something else besides an egg? ... I liked cereal because its big and fills me up somewhat, like its not a small meal. Could I have waffles or something?? Or can I just stick to raisin bran
Well 20 mins of jump roping in the morning, and 20 in the afternoon/evening. Then cleaning my house which is like an hour the most I would say, maybe more. I do things here and there, like laundry too...
When you think you parents will let you learn an important life skill like cooking? Part of the reason you are overweight is because you are eating processed foods. If you could cook you could make yourself healthy, filling foods that will not leave you hungry. Things like Special K and Raisin Bran spike hunger in many people.
Processed carbohydrates make people fat. Waffles will turn you into a blimp. You need to eat lean protein, some fruit and vegetables.
I NEVER SAID I AM CURRENTLY EATING MAC N CHEESE. I WAS USING IT TO COMPARE TO HOW STRICT MY PARENTS ARE. I AM NOT JUST MY PARENTS ARE STRICT SO ID RATHER STICK TO THE SIMPLE THINGS... Do uyou people have a problem with that?
I thought they were healthy breakfasts
I saw your first note about mac&cheese. You need to stop eating processed foods. Those boxed cereals are junk food. Make a bowl of steel cut
oatmeal (not that flavored crap in packages) if you must eat cereal. But you will not lose weight eating all those carbs.
Is it okay if I still have that smart wonder bread I use for my turkey sandwhich for lunch? And oh, maybe thats what on the ipod app that I have, it keeps track of your limit and everything, and on sugar theres always a negative number, im going way past the goal for the day...
Wonder bread is bait for fat people. If the turkey is just roasted and not processed just eat that on a healthy whole grain bread. You need to learn what is healthy and what is junk. Read Michael Pollan's book "Food Rules" to start.
Well I have to be eating at least somewhat right cuz I did lose 8 lbs and my brother is like a food and nutrition, well becoming some kind of thing involvef with that hes in college. He says what im eating is fine that bread and a turjey sandwhich. As long as im not going over the limit of my calorie intake for the da
Here, I will save you the money of having to buy the book:
