I met with a doctor for weight loss yesterday. I need to lose 33 lbs to be within the healthy threshold for my height.
His plan is to help me tweak behaviors so that I start eating 1200 calories a day out of habit and learn to eliminate hidden calories. We'll do this for the first 20 pounds and then add exercise once I've learned to control my caloric intake.
His suggestion for the next two weeks, in addition to tracking my calories, is to replace my morning Cliff Bar, which averages 250 calories for 9 grams of protein with protein bars that have at least 10 grams of protein and no more than 200 calories.
I tried a Quest Bar today (20g of Protein since it's my first day) and it tasted like chalk. My sister and BIL recommended mixing in Shakeology shakes which have 17g of protein and about 170 calories on days when I have time to make and drink a shake.
Does anyone have any other better tasting suggestions?
