    It surprised me how many of my theories were just plain wrong.

    I usually make a kind of chili or tortilla soup for dinner. It keeps well, can be reheated for later, and you can make a big batch on Sunday and have dinner the rest of the week.

    1 lb ground turkey
    1 can of diced tomatoes
    1 can of Progresso Lentil Soup (low fat if you'd like)
    1 large yellow onion, diced
    1 green bell pepper, diced
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    1 jalapeno pepper, diced (or more if you like it hot, like I do)
    1 cup lowfat or nonfat cottage cheese
    1 tsp minced garlic

    Cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste (meaning add them until you think it tastes good). The most important spice for this recipe is Cumin in my opinion... it brings the flavors together.

    1) Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray and cook the garlic, peppers and onions on medium heat until the onions start to look a little clear. Then add the ground turkey.
    2) Brown the ground turkey lightly for about 5-6 minutes, sprinkling lightly with some cumin and cayenne. The turkey doesn't need to be fully cooked at this point as it will cook through later.
    3) Add the Lentil Soup and Tomatoes. Flavor generously with Cumin, a couple dashes of Cayenne, and a couple shakes of the red pepper flakes and chili powder. Stir that up, lower the heat to Medium-Low, cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.
    4) Lastly, mix in the cottage cheese (gives it a creamy, cheesy flavor while being high in protein). Serve and enjoy.

    Steamed broccoli + steamed spinach + steamed sweet potatoes or yams + steamed chicken breasts. Raw almonds or Raw cashews. Raw cucumbers. No sugar sauce no nothing. Zilt.

    Eat this everyday, 5-6 times a day, for about 4-5 weeks and you will see your bodyfat dramatically decrease.

    Of course during those 4-5 weeks you're gonna wish someone would just stab you in the eye and get it over with.

    I'm currently not on that diet. I only do that like during spring cutting, or a month before my winter Hawaii vacations. Your mind just can't take these kind of monotonous boring food for so long.

    Raw or as rare as you can stomach it:

    Grilled Salmon or if it is verrrrry fresh, as in just got of the boat fresh, raw salmon (ask for sushi grade from your local fishmonger).

    What I don't eat raw in the first sitting I freeze and then slice into thin strips to eat as raw salmon Popsicles icon_biggrin.gif

    Thinly sliced Cappicola, Wagyū Beef (Australian grown herds exist)

    Carbohydrates of any sort in excess will hinder you - eat only highly fibrous breads like German dark bread or flatbreads if you must.

    Candies, sweet teas and carbonated soda beverages of any sort are deffo off the list.

    Same with any alcohol except for a daily glass of red wine.

    Leafy green veggies are good - the more raw, the better.

    Cottage Cheese for those late night snack cravings IF you worked out earlier in the day.

    Quaff unsweetened green tea or barley tea, and water - 2gal/7.5l per day.
