Why is squash a carbohydrate?
In the food list in the book squash is listed as a carb. Any idea why? It's carb count is lower than tomatoes. I don't get it.

Hi gang, This is my 3rd Day and worked my lower body. When are you supposed to eat after weights? Some say immediately but thought the BFL says to wait awhile. Any suggestions? Thanks! I always thought you should consume some protein after weight training.

Pineapple and cottage cheese?
I've been reading about cottage cheese and berries being a great 6th meal. I live in India and it's not the best season to find berries here. Was wondering if I could have it with a drained slice of canned pineapple? any other suggestions?

Re: what do YOU eat for breakfast?
S C O J O
My favorite BFL breakfast is Oatmeal Pancakes . And it's super duper healthy: - Make plain oatmeal in the microwave - mix in some egg whites until it's pancake batter consistency ( clumpy, but wet) - add some vanilla extract & cinnamon - spray a pan with a modicum of butter flavored...

New Food Ideas
I'm about to begin my 3rd week of BFL. I've done it in the past and I know that this program WORKS for me, however, I also know myself and I know that I get bored eating the same thing over and over. I'm getting ready to make my grocery list for week 3 and I would love some new ideas. Here's...

Hi BFL'ers! I'm just interested to see what others have planned for Christmas Day (less than a month to go !!!!!!!) Christmas day is going to be our free day but I wanted to keep it reasonably healthy noting that I personally will still be watching my portion control so that I don't go to...

Re: Husbands and grocery shopping (sorry Guys)
Right, Leggs - but I understand where your husband is coming from, because it's something that a lot of us guys do. Even me (but to a lesser extent since I've made the full transformation). About a month ago, I bought my sons a huge box of that seafaring captains crunchy cereal, but it could...

Is wheat Free ok?
Hi, I am about to start my challenge but need to make sure i am doing the right thing. I understand that full fat cottage cheese is better than low fat. But is wheat free pasta better than normal???? Many thanks.

I was on BFL for about 1.5 years and got pretty darn healthy. Fell off the plan when I quit tobacco and put some of the weight back on. Before, I always ate the same stuff from week to week. I always planned out my meals ahead of time, made a bunch of food on one day and froze it all for the rest of...

Re: Vegetarian support thread: meal plans and ideas
So, here's my meal plan for the past week. (Unfortunately I forgot to record Sunday, but I can assure you no feats of culinary genius took place on that day.) Looking it over it seems I could fit in some more vegetables. I'll make that a goal for next week. I do quite a bit of weighing...

Can I fulfill my carb needs w/ fruit and veggies instead of bread?
I really want to cut down on my intake of processed foods and gluten, including bread. Therefore, I would like to substitute fresh fruit and vegetables for the carb requirements of my diet. For example, this morning, instead of oatmeal, I ate a small tangerine, 1/2 pear, spinach, and tomatoes with my...

Do I really need to eat only egg whites? And other diet questions for a newbie
Since the egg yolks have 90% of the nutrition of the eggs (including all the Omega 3 fatty acids) and all of the flavor, do I really need to throw out the yolks when I eat eggs? I like to start the morning with 2 scrambled eggs mixed with some cooked spinach. Am I not going to see any progress just because...

can my free day be dinner tonight, and breakfast and lunch of tomorrow?
I went to a party for dinner and overindulged, but ate super clean up until 7pm. I sort of feel cheated out of a free day because I only ate "free" foods at one meal. Can i eat free for breakfast and lunch tomorrow? I have another party at noon tomorrow so I am sort of hoping to have some cake...

I need some reassurance that I'm doing this right...
In the past I've used calorie trackers (LiveStrong and Spark People) - I realize this diet is not about calorie counting, but about eyeballing portions. I've been using that method during my journey (p.s. I'm 3 weeks in) and also use the Eating For Life book and follow those recipes. Occasionally...
