So how do you decide what you are going to eat?  Do you just wing it?  Do you plan for the day?  the week?  To be succesful at weight loss, studies ahve shown that if you write everything down, it helps you lose more.
I am a magazine junkie and always plan to try different recipeis, the most recent come from Self   I was just looking for a recipe on their website and found this cool thing!  It is an advanced recipe search You select the prep time, the main ingrediant(s) and it gives you suggestions!
  I think I am going to try this one, but am going to lose the olives, and pita breas and eat as a salad instead
