Ever Skip Meals?
If I just don't have time to get something or make something, I found that a meal bar works. The South Beach Living meal bars are good and keep me feeling full longer since they are high in protein. You ever find your self guilty of skipping meals?

I don't like the taste of those. Skipping meals is a habit that I had to break. And, I'm glad I did. Now, if I know I'm going to be out and about, I make sure I have some kind of snack - an apple, a banana, a baggie of celery sticks or broccoli crowns, or even a little package of almonds. And, I make sure and plan time to eat. It was a hard habit to break, but it really made a difference in my weight loss.

I used to eat the Zone bars as they have a lot of protein too, but now, I find that if I just plan, I can get better nutrition for the same calories. :)

Are you dieting? If so, what "diet"? I'm doing weight watchers. :)

Sometimes I eat breakfast at ten o clock at night. Send help plz.

Hmmm...not a problem if your "day" is, say, from 8:00 p.m. until 10 a.m. I trust you eat during the day, Nimue?

LOL... True RJ! :)

I find that if I eat late at night (since I have a traditional day of up at 5:30 am and bed by 9:30 or 10pm), i get heartburn, so it's a huge deterrent for me!

If you find yourself skipping breakfast - no matter what time you eat it (it's the first meal of your day), I'd say to look at how you feel and when you are actually hungry. If you are trying to lose weight, starving yourself (skipping meals) isn't the way to do it, your body will shut down and start saving the fat because it thinks it needs to.

:eek: We are supposed to eat :eek:

This is the first I have heard of this! LOL..

No really.. Was always told to eat 3 small meals a day and a light snack in-between. Never really worked for me though :(
Was also told if you drink a glass of water a half hour before eating, you will fill up faster with less food.. ;)

the great thing about the south beach meal bars is they dont contain high fructose corn syrup. i started eating them after i had my son as a way to help me hold off from eating unhealthy snacks. now, they are a regular snack in my day!

I don't exactly skip meals, but I don't eat on a normal schedule either.

I like the Power Bar peanut butter crisp and the Balance Bar original peanut butter bar, but hardly ever any of the other brands or varieties. I have this peanut butter addiction and those two varieties are the only ones that actually taste like real peanut butter.

PoohsBigSister February 12th, 2009 05:07 PM

Tammy!! You be careful with those peanut butter flavored bars right now!! sheez!! :)

DACDjr February 12th, 2009 08:28 PM

It is the mighty Tammy... Don't see much of her lately :(

I agree with the PB, never know..

I like to munch on carrots.. Bad habit lol.. But worked well when quit smoking ;)

IRISH_EYES_99 February 12th, 2009 08:31 PM

Yes ((((((( Tammy ))))))))) do be careful. I think that they should have made the owner of that peanut company eat some of the tainted peanut butter. Instead of allowing him to plead the 5th. He should have eating 1/5 of the jar. :D Just my humble opinion.

(((((( PBS, DACDjr, & all ))))))))

Tammy February 13th, 2009 06:13 AM

Not to worry! None of my peanut butter fixes were on the recall lists. Besides, it'll take more than a salmonella and rat turds to rub me out. :cackle:

IRISH_EYES_99 February 13th, 2009 10:37 AM

:rofl: I can picture Tammy telling them all. "Get out of my way don't make me step on you. Samonella be dammed".

((((((((( Tammy & all )))))))))))))
