    top 5 foods for weight loss / training

    Shame on me - my metabolism has kept me from ever thinking about my weight...until now. What have you found to be your favorite foods when you are training and trying to loose weight?

    Hmmm...Okay, here goes
    Diet Coke
    Chicken breasts
    Strawberries
    Fat Free hot dogs
    Lite hot dog buns
    Tortillas

    Hey, actually, I eat almost anything within reason. What I mean is, I don't munch down on Doritos very often, but I don't deprive myself either.

    Tuna
    Sara Lee Delightful Whole Wheat Bagels (mmm....sooo good and low cal)
    Diet Coke
    Turkey Breast
    Healthy breakfast (multi-grain cereal with skim milk)
    Baby Carrots and tons of 'em. Low cal, so tasty and also quite filling.
    Also some amounts of pasta and rice because they are low in fat and somewhat low in calories. But you can't have too much. Also stay away from cream sauces on the pasta.

    It's more about what you don't eat. It's better to cut the crap from the bottom of the list, which leaves lots of better stuff at the top.

    Lose the empty calories, and the less processed it is, the more good it does you.

    My shopping choices are Wal-Mart or Wal-Mart - here is the bread we like -
    Sara Lee - 100% whole wheat classic
    1g fat
    135 mg sodium
    13 g carb
    2g dietary fiber
    2 g sugar

    Does this count?

    Actually, I'll have to check, I buy High Fiber, Low Cal. Wheat bread at H.E.B (think its Sara Lee, but I could be wrong)

    Think its in the 4g range if I'm not mistaken.

    My general rule.

    Green veggies, as much as you want daily.
    Anything that's got 3g of fiber in it is good because it takes some work for your body to break it down.

    I've recently added turkey, ham (found some really good cuts).
    Tuna, Salmon
    Grape nuts
    Apples
    Bananas
    Spinach
    Green beans
    Squash
    cucumbers
    zuchini

    Also, I've found that using lime based salsas to replace salad dressings actually work well, and at 15 calories a tablespoon its a hell of a lot better than any of the cream based ones.

    Spinach, soy cheese and salsa with hard boiled eggs=love

    maybe but I think those slices have 80-100 calories. Try the Sara Lee Delightful Multi-Grain (is uses whole wheat flour and no enriched flour) and it's 45 calories per slice. They have a Honey Wheat too I believe.

    1) Noodles. Chinese Noodles. For carbing up before a ride, so you have enough energy to get anywhere. "Simple" carbs, without fiber, used strategically.
    2) Boiled egg over salad. Fiber and protein, and fat from mayonnaise. A critical part of my post-ride meal. Makes me feel full.
    3) Chicken. Tandoori Chicken. Mmmmm Protein.
    4) Fish Curry Rice. Carbs, protein... not much fat.
    5) VEGETABLES. Steamed, boiled, whatever. Because you function better chock full of phytonutrients, and the fiber keeps you feeling satiated longer when eaten with other foods.

    And 6) PIZZA. A whole pepperoni and cheese. Why? Because refeeding keeps your leptin levels high, and your fat loss going. Not more than once every 10 days or so

    Lowfat but NOT nonfat yogurt
    Salmon
    Brown rice
    Lentils
    Lots and lots of colorful veggies, including some raw each day
    Pasta (al dente)
    Cereal (Kashi makes some great ones with plenty of soluble fiber, I eat it with yogurt)
    Hummus
    Fruit
    Fake meat products (I have a serious addiction to Morningstar Farms Buffalo Chik'n)
    Lots of water
    Vogels Flax and Soy bread (so yummy! So fiber-ful!)

    1/ Beer
    2/ Chips
    3/Wine
    4/Red meat
    5/Cheese

    and plenty of baguette!

    Edamame is soybeans in the pod. Doesn't sound that great, but they actually taste fantastic. Soybeans are nearly the perfect food (nutritionally speaking).
