Here are two suggestions to give you more bang for your buck:

1. Instead of peanuts eat macadamia nuts or pecans. They have fewer carbs and more fat (better appetite suppression). If you roast the pecans in the toaster oven, and add butter, they will be as good or better than the macadamias but at a lower price.

Serving Size: 1/4 Cup


LOWEST TO HIGHEST NET CARBS:
Pecans 4.0 carbs 1.2 net carbs
Macadamia nuts 3.6 carbs 1.4 net carbs
Brazil nuts 3.5 carbs 1.5 net carbs
Hazelnuts 4.7 carbs 2.0 net carbs
Walnuts 3.9 carbs 2.0 net carbs
Almonds 5.6 carbs 2.2 net carbs
Pine nuts 5.5 carbs 2.5 net carbs
Sunflower kernels 5.8 carbs 2.5 net carbs
Pumpkin seed kernels 3.8 carbs 2.7 net carbs
Peanuts 5.3 carbs 3.4 net carbs
Pistachios 7.6 carbs 4.7 net carbs
Cashews 8.5 carbs 7.6 net carbs

2. Drink Michelob Ultra, which has only 2.6 g of carb per serving (Amstel Light has 5 g; Corona Light, 4.5 g; Natural light, 3.2 g).

Now at 6 weeks in range. This is the longest stretch in range for me since July 2009 when I stayed in range for 10 weeks. So, a mini-goal for me now is to beat that 10 week run.

Now that sure is a way to look at maintenance. I admire your determination! I have gotten comfortable with being 1-3# over my goal range.

You have been maintaining that range for many months which is great, you should be very pleased with how well you are doing.

Re #2, don't do it! Either accept the additional carbs, or quit drinking. That's some nasty stuff.

+1 I wouldn't drink Ultra if it was 0 calories and 0 carbs! But, thanks Al for the "nutty" advice.

Sorry, I don't remember. Somewhere on the intergoogle -- I copied the data to my google docs.

Goal 185
Making progress. Sticking to my piece of fruit for breakfast, cup of soup for lunch, a couple of Corona Light or Amstel Light beers after work, and one serving of whatever DW fixes for dinner. And, moved up on TromboneAl's nut list from peanuts to almonds for snacks.

Highest was 139# (2007)
5'4" Target range 116 - 121#

Not working as much, which means not walking as much...I think that's the culprit. I'm gonna have to watch my intake better since my activity level has gone down.

Now at 8 weeks in range. Mini-goal is to beat my 10 week run I achieved in the summer of 2009.

Great work this week racy and JB, keep up the good work, you're both making great progress.

It's a beautiful day here so we are heading out for a nice long bike ride, and will stop somewhere for lunch. Need to be back by 4 to play tennis with my son. Retirement definitely makes getting plenty of exercise a lot easier.
