Hello all... another newb getting started.

Postby ogeneo » July 16th, 2007, 11:37 am

Howdy folks... Ordered the product a couple of weeks ago, decided I'd start today (7/16) so I had a bit of a binge over the weekend. With that behind me, I'm moving forward with the plan. Two shakes down and tons more to go. :lol:

Weighed in at 297 this morning, headed to 210 or even as low as 199..

Many questions to come.

Thanks all.. day 1 down without any issues. A few cravings, but I think they will go away after a week or so. Today was Shake/Shake/Bar/L&G/Shake/Shake. I bought some extremely lean ground beef, cooked it on my GF Grill. I was about to split the portion in two and call it a day until I weighed it and realized it was three portions! Thank you kitchen scale!

I love shrimp and other shellfish... no I really really do! Looks like I could sautee 7oz of shrimp in 2tsp of Trans fat free margarine...

I think that sounds right to me. 7oz of shrimp is a heck of a lot - I had that quite often at first, when I was still used to eating way too much food - it filled me right up. Congratulations on your first day!

Welcome. Remember that the weight of "lean" portions is AFTER cooking.
