M: Another thing to try: things that are similar calories, but more filling. Brown rice instead of white. Whole grained bread. Salads with grains, like faro or quinua (faro is SUPER yummy, btw). I snack on rice cakes, which are filling but have 35 calories. (Got this from a suggestion from our vet about how to help our dog keep his weight in check!) Small substitutions in your existing routine that will help you feel more full will make the 1200 calories a day thing go further.


A post just for me! Thanks! :) I am always trying to untangle motivation and discipline so I love to hear how other people do it. I prefer to work out first thing in the morning too. It's too easy to let it slide later in the day.

I don't know how people live on 1200 calories either. The tips above are helpful but as far as I can tell, going carb-free is the only way to do it and so far I haven't been able to make that leap.


I'm so frustrated. I don't know what to do... I hate exercise and can't seem to find the motivation. I signed up for Fitness Pal (which is really fantastic until you try to figure out the calories for home-made stuff).

I've got to do something about my extra weight.

I'm kvetching here, aren't I?
