I'm not swaying girl but I have 2 little girls and I thought maybe I could help a little here...
I know they say to skip breakfast, and I'm by no means saying you shouldn't do this, but I've always been a breakfast person. Not a big breakfast eater though, I always ate cereal and by always I mean EVERY SINGLE morning lol It drove my DH nuts because I could eat cereal every single day and not get tired of it, which he was never able to do. During the day I'd have a yogurt (sometimes 2) both greek and frozen, my lunch usually involved chicken (chicken alfredo pasta with tons of cheese was a favorite) or fish, shrimp, or sushi. Never ever any read meat, and I never added any salt to any of my food...I hate salt! I drank a lot of diet coke, cranberry juice, and crystal light. And for dinner - if I had dinner (that's the one meal I'd skip half the time)- I'd sometimes have cereal (again!), a protein shake, or oatmeal (with milk, not water).
I also worked out a lot, tons of cardio at least 5 times a week for anywhere from 45-60 minutes. Anything from zumba, running, elliptical, or spinning. I was losing weight at the time that I got pregnant with both my girls and I may have been sick around the time DD2 was conceived so I know those 2 things will sometimes sway girl.
GL to you ladies and HTH!
