question about lean cuisine's

i have been eating them lunch for a few weeks now, usually with a small amount of fresh carrots or celery. would it be ok to eat those more than just once a day? i never cook and lean cuisine's are perfect for me, they are healthy, easy to make and sorta cheap. would there be any problems if i started eating them ALOT, everyday?

thanks

I've been eating them, or healthy choice or whatever, for five years now. Damn near everyday at lunch, quite a few times for lunch and dinner.

Alot better than eating off the dollar menu at McDonald's!

The only problem with those types of dinners (Healthy Choice included) is they are highly processed meals so the nutritional value is going to be a little less than, say, making the meal from scratch. I try to eat fresh as much as possible but sometimes I'll pop a weight watchers, lean cuisine or health choice in the microwave because I don't have time.

would adding some fresh veggies on the side help that?

Exactly. They also tend to have a pretty high sodium content.

Healthy Choice isn't too bad about sodium, but Lean Cuisine is.

My boss was telling me not too long ago that sodium helps retain fat - any truth to that??

No, it makes you retain water.

When I first started my diet I was eating the Smart Ones meals for lunch everyday. Yeah, it was better than fast food, but as stated above they have a pretty high sodium content so I wouldn't eat them daily. Try and limit them to 2-3 a week and make yourself some chicken breasts, turkey breast on whole wheat, green veggies, tuna, lowfat cottage cheese, fruit, yogurt, etc. for your meals. Try and stick with more freshly prepared items.
