Sorry first for all the questions, I just want to make sure I'm doing this right since today is only day 1. So I just finished my L&G meal. I had 6oz of shredded chicken breast cooked with 1teaspoon of canola oil. I had 2 cups of iceburg lettuce and 1/2 cup of tomatoes. I seasoned the chicken with 2tsp of sour cream and 1/2tsp of chipotle season. Looked like alot of food.

This has to be the hardest meal for me today. All the Medifast meals were actually not to bad. I need ideas for my L&G meal, that will definitely kill me on this plan. Thanks for looking..

Well, I think it's actually 7 ounces of chicken. I tend to rely a lot on big salads for dinner. They fill me up but I try to remember to eat some real vegetables once in a while. I cook chicken tenders. They cook faster so the meat tends to dry out less.

I love the meatless options. The veggie Thai and Black Bean burgers are great. Even the hamburger type ones aren't badI'll usually add a slice of 2% cheese to it for some more punch..

Then there's a good standby of the eggs/egg white option. Throw a little salsa on it and I buy some of those tortilla strips. Pretty tasty as well. Seven ounces of scallops is a huge meal too.

I can't remember when I last ate beefit's not worth the 5 ounce limitation to me..

I lost 20 pounds the first four weeks. Keep with it!.

Yeah this sounds about right! Sounds very delish too! Also with the chicken breast you really dont have to worry about the oz like for example....

I buy the 98% fat free kind and keep it btween 6oz-7oz and never go over or under!!! .

So, what we having for tomorrow lol..

You have it right and it leaves you with one condiment left to use.

Easiest L&G for me: once a week I'd make a roast in the crock pot. Slice it up thin and put into 5 oz baggies (I love beef, needs to HF and less volume so I'm not stuffed at dinner). Then all I needed to do each day was pull a baggie out of the freezer to defrost and figure out what veggies I wanted. Cold salad or hot. Easy peasy and left a lot of room for variety. I'd have tuna or other fish once a week and egg another night.

I would have chicken when I ate out since green salads with lean grilled chicken is the easiest thing to find in restaurants. Rarely got bored and gave me the ease and convenience I needed..

This sounds so easy but I only do that with chicken breast! I cook on grill then frozen it up for the week!! Makes life so much easier!.

Comment #5

Have you tried the recipes section? Use the search function for lean & green. There are some great recipes in there that are easy and taste good too Or search for green bean lasagna, tuna wraps or omelet (those are a few popular recipes). Good luck.

Yeah it sounds about right. To add moisture I generally do 3/4c of tomatoes and 1.5c of lettuce. Also, I AVOID salad during my steak&salmon days, since I can't have any added fat which = no dressingTo save up on the fat I use the George Foreman grill on the chicken and just lay it directly on the griddle, spray some pam on a pan and cook it stovetop, or best yet, put it in a casserole dish with only seasoning and/or lemon, that way I can still get 2T of dressing for my salad. A tasty L&G with chicken that I do is season some chicken breast, bake it in the oven a while, then add a can of sugar-free tomato sauce, bake it the rest of the way, and sprinkle some low-fat mozzarella on top. It's not *precise* but I weigh out slightly less than 6oz of the chicken before adding the cheese shreds (since cheese counts as part of the lean). with salad & low-fat dressing on the side. It's lovely..

I didn't know for the longest time that cheese could count as a lean. Here are some cheat sheets I use (other than the lean and green lists which you probably already have):.



Good luck! You'll get your L&G sea legs very soon, trust me..

I always cook my chicken in a pan with water while I'm shredding it. It stays more moist and the water will cook off once you put on your seasonings.

I eat a lot of salads with cottage cheese or hard boiled eggs. Easy peasy and good!.
