Three lunches. 5/17/21

Since we ended up not eating our planned dinner last night, I thought I would do a post on what I eat for lunch. I ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner and a popcorn snack every day and still managed to lose 60 lbs. over the last year. And I have stayed at my goal weight plus or minus two pounds for 6 months.

I am a pretty hungry person generally so I need to eat volume without an abundance of calories. On the plus side I do not eat between meals except for my planned popcorn snack around 5:30 PM and I never eat desserts unless it is for a really special occasion. I play tennis three times a week and try to walk some (which I really dislike) on the other days.

My first lunch pictured is a vegan/vegetarian stir-fry with tofu served over cauliflower rice.

The second picture is a big salad with some chicken breast meat and half a small avocado.

Finally, here is my “famous” null soup. If you are following the current WW plan, it has zero points. (I used to make this without chicken but the current WW diet gives you chicken breast for zero points.

My usual lunch, because I do not go to all the trouble of making these more elaborate lunches every day, is an open-faced chicken sandwich with mustard and lettuce, a pickle, and non-fat Greek yogurt with blueberries.

Another day I will show you what I eat for breakfast. I just want to stress that you do not have to starve yourself to lose weight!
