Today was bad b/c I've been home all day and haven't been to the store for groceries. I didn't have breakfast b/c I slept in today but for lunch I had two tacos that I had left over from yesterday. I drink water with everything pretty much. Earlier this evening I made some progresso chicken noodle soup and had a grilled cheese. That's all I've had today. Yesterday I had a bowl of cereal in the morning, a turkey sandwhich and baked lays for lunch, and a nasty bean burrito and muchaco from taco bueno for dinner. eek

What was on the tacos ? beef ? chicken ? fried shells ? corn or flour tortilla ? cheese ? sour cream ? The cheese is in the grilled cheese is loaded with fat as well. What was on the turkey sandwich as far as mayonaise or mustard ? Cheese ? bread type ?
If you are serious about dropping weight you need to clean up your diet. It is best to eat 5 to 6 times a day with about 200 calories per time for your body weight with as little fat as possible and a lot of protein. If you would like to see what eating right will do, then for 7 days, do not eat any fried foods, keep your calories under 1200 per day, and keep your fat intake way down. Try eating tuna with fat free mayonaise on whole wheat bread " 270 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 24 grams protein, , or turkey with kraft fat free cheese on whole wheat "220, calories, 2.5 grams fat, 18 grams protein, or grilled chicken breast on the same. The grilled chicken sandwiches at chick fila are only 3 grams of fat and 260 calories while providing around 27 grams of protein. Try this for 7 days and track the results. For snacks, sugarfree jello cups are 10 calories and 0 fat, and light popcorn is good as well. If you eat a hamburger, use mustard instead of mayonaise and baked potatoe with sour cream only instead of french fries. If you must eat tacos, then go with corn tortillas with no cheese and preferably chicken instead of fried greasy beef. All of these little changes will make a big difference when put all together. Doing cardio 3 times a week will help even more.
