Updates on Weight Loss
I started taking OxyElite Pro Thermogenic Fat Burner on Friday. I have to say that I haven't been a fan of diet pills, but this one came recommended from a highly trusted person, so I thought I would give it a try. The ingredients really aren't that bad!  I don't know if it really burns fat but I will tell that it sure suppresses my appetite! Even when in ketosis, feeling hungry has been by biggest struggle.  Since I started taking OxyElite Pro, I have to remind myself to eat. I haven't had any bad side effects from it either.  I am loving it! As with any pill, it doesn't matter what you take if you make bad food choices.  So I am still focusing on eating the right things.

New Favorite Things to Eat
1. Jalfrezi Chicken w/ Tandoori Rice & Stir Fry Veggies
(415 calories, 12 g fat, 50 g carbs, 31 g protein per serving)
Recipe for 2 Servings:

12 oz can of Kirkland Canned Chunk Chicken
2/3 cup or 1/2 jar of Seeds of Change Jalfrezi Curry Simmer Sauce

Sautee veggies until cooked. Add chicken, rice & simmer sauce to pan.  Heat until warmed & enjoy! Makes 2 servings.

2. Met-RX Creamy Peanut Butter Crisp Bar - These bars weigh 90g each, so I actually divide them into thirds. Each 1/3 bar is 30g and has 103 calories, 3.3 g fat, 11 g carbs and 10 g protein.
