    Ah, my mistake. I see your tolerance is second to none.

    Some people have a travel coffee mug. I have a travel spill-proof whiskey nosing glass.

    I lost 22 lbs in three weeks on South Beach; phase 1 is very restrictive and an absolute bitch the first few days but beyond that it's fine. The tenets are very simple: no sugar and no carbs. Most everything else is fair game.

    that's fucked up,22 lbs in 3 weeks?How many pounds were you?

    The bottom line is: you've got to stock the house with reasonably healthy foods, and avoid going out whenever possible. I bring my lunch to work, largely because then I exert portion control and know what I'm getting.
    + a billion. Never rely on in-the-moment willpower when you're hungry. Exert remote-control by manipulating your environment (e.g., the foods stocked in your cupboard) to constrain your choices.

    When you figure this out Sho'Nuff, let me know as I'd like one as well...

    naah - the mouth opening is too small, and you can't really get a good sniff of what you're drinking. No point in getting liquored up if you can't enjoy what you're drinking.

    In my credenza: Clif Builder Bars, maybe oatmeal squares. In the office fridge/kitchen: yogurt, apples, peanut butter, whatever lunch I brought that day.

    get tuna, eat a can everyday. just becuase you exercised a shit ton doesn't mean you can eat a shit ton. hide all foods. out of sight is out of mind.

    Makes sense and this is a viable alternative...

    What are your typical easy to make lunches you bring to the office? Like a sandwich and salad? I'd like to do this, but out of laziness and an unwillingness to not hit the snooze button 3 times per morning, I haven't gotten around to bringing my lunch to work.

    My really really easy lunch is:

    whole wheat bagel
    can of tuna
    extra-virgin olive oil
    balsamic or red-wine vinegar

    here's the kicker - I can keep everything at the office, so let's say Monday I hit the grocery store, pick up a six-pack of wheat bagels, some cans of tuna, and a medium bottle of evoo and vinegar. Nothing needs refrigeration, all you really need is a can opener, and you're set.

    Add some natural peanut butter (also can keep at the office) and an apple and you're good. Or a cup of yogurt. Or - last week I baked (whole-wheat) muffins and those were a good mid-morning snack between breakfast and late lunch. Bag, grab, and go.
