Now today, I'm clear and free from the "C" and doing well. I feel I got my life back and started to walk again without the pain of chemo side effects. You think having chemo - you would loose weight but it's the opposite. Doctors inform me that I would gain weight in my process and I did gain. There are times, I hate being a female ... LOL. With all the chemo side effect, the steroid pills put the weight on my body. So, now that I'm OK I'm back on the diet search to loose my weight and more.
Packing a lunch and a great way to loose weight and save in your wallet. A simple whole wheat bread with turkey sandwich is a easy 280 calories but if you cut that in half and add a vege sticks or a piece of fruit, it will come to 200 calories. And for the 80 calories left, well, you can have a Quaker Chewy granola bar at 3:00pm to avoid the candy or sugar pop/soda machines. If you do get hunger at 3:00pm have a piece of sugarless gum or almonds which is a great source to kill your hunger and keeps you occupy from having bad foods.
Fruit is a great sweet food to cut the cravings. But if it is a must have, sweet tooth craving, have the 100 calories cookie bags or jello. Don't prive from all the sugar from your body and mind. Like people say, you only have one body and one lifetime to live, just don't go over board. Treat yourself once in a while, but not too much. Enjoy life.
