Looks like you are making some good progress!

Try to include protein in the snacks to prevent your insulin from spiking.

For the milk question what of those has the lowest amount of carbs?
What about chocolate whey powder shake?

Thanks for posting :)
Well, I'm not sure which of them has the lowest amount of carbs, I'll check into that.. you don't recommend dairy though do you? Or do I have it mixed up?
Yeah maybe a chocolate shake would be good for a snack.. I might do that. So far I haven't lost any weight, I'm exactly the same as when I started which is a little frustrating for me, because I feel like I've been eating a lot better lately and had more exercise. I think I should've lost at least a couple of pounds by now.

Don't mind the weight!

You're probably trading fat for muscle.

Looks like you are making some good changes, yoour eating looks good. I read your comments, thank you. Unfortunately before I read them I did eat some cookies, so today was not a good day for myself.

thanks :) Even with the two cookies your eating is still way better than mine! I'm not losing any weight so I guess I'm eating too many calories. I'm actually using your food loog as an inspiration and trying to eat more like you although it doesn't always work out for me :roll:
