So, I got my WW Points Plus kit today, and I'm scanning the Food Companion (FC from now on) book to see what's up.
The new FC has a little green triangle next to "Power Foods"--those satisfying, nutritious foods that WW encourages one to choose to consume. Examples, choosing random FC pages:
Beans (whole lotta them)
Bean curd skin (ugh)
Egg Whole, boiled
Fish (lotsa them, but not lox, salmon, sardines, canned in oil tuna, mackerel, etc)
Hearts of Palm
Latte, fat free
Liver beef, cooked (not chicken or turkey liver)
Malanga (mmm, love it boiled and mashed with EVOO)
Okra, but not breaded or fried
Pasta, whole wheat
Rice, brown and wild, not white
Soursop (mmmm, love it in smoothies)
Veal Loin, trimmed
Yam, cooked, not canned in syrup
Yogurt, fat free
Yucca--having some boiled yucca today. Great with garlic/EVOO or "mojo"
In the Dining Out Companion (DOC), here are some power foods at popular eateries:
Au Bon Pain:
toppings: ham, roasted red peppers, turkey breast
fresh apple fries (yep, that's it)
red tomatillo salsa
corn on the cob
nonfat latte--iced or hot
nothing (seriously? Hah!)
Other eateries also had ZIP power foods listed. Hm.
So, have some power foods today, yes? :)
On to the body shots. I'm wearing a smaller size, but looser clothes (ie, cheaper fabric that isn't as "containing" and my bra in the second shot is looser, less supportive, so more droop. Sigh.) See if you can tell there's been a 10 pound difference even so:
I see it mostly in the front-facing pics. I see it in my mirror, too---in the hips. You can tell the bump on the high part is much smaller. I have a smoother, more curved rather than BUMPY look there. The side pics, you see where I've lost upper back fat and the upper abdomen, that's where it's most noticeable. The stomach is stubborn to go, but I note a lessenign there, too. The belly's gonna have to surrender. I will win eventually! Little by little!
Next pics at 232-ish.
