So about over a month ago I quit taking my wight loss drug cocktail, so i called it... it worked well, but i started feeling really sluggish, i wasn't sure if it was the meds or a combination of things... but the fact is i have much more energy now that i am off the meds... so the reason i write about it is because, ever since i have had a hard time with eating in general *the meds controlled hunger* ... i wouldn't say i am eating the wrong things (because i buy only good or semi good things at the store) but my portions have gotten bigger, and I've been eating cereal before bedtime...
Our microwave broke, and I am not replacing it... so we've been cooking on the stove more, which requires olive oil... (because I wont use Pam, or anything weird to coat my pan) I know its really fattening and perhaps I dont realize how much of it I consume... i realize that living a healthy life style is trials and errors, and i am QUEEN trial and error, but i have been struggling latley with what's on my plate...

I find if I'm not watching things very closely I tend to eat like my skinny DH who can eat just about anything. I have to accept while he can eat all day long and not gain an ounce I can not. I also need about 1/2 of what he can put away. *sigh* It sucks.

You can use ICBINB spray instead of olive oil. But you should know that olive oil is good for you. Not to mention it's good you don't use Pam. Cooking spray tears up the teflon coating on non-stick cookware so I never use it. (I have brand new Pampered Chef cookware.) If I use anything it's olive oil (in the Pampered Chef spritzer) or butter, etc.

Weight Watchers allows 2 tsp. per day of healthy oils (canola, flaxseed, olive and safflower) and you don't have to count them against you. It's good to have some healthy fats. Keeps the system running smoothly.

About the late night eating, I'm with you! I love a huge bowl of cereal at night. It's so hard to resist!

I didn't know about that other spray. I use olive oil spray i am guessing it's the same as pam. I haven't had any issues with my t-fal pans though.

I also love a bowl of cereal at night. Matter of fact, that'll be my late lunch/snack lol

I used 0 calorie spray or EVOO to coat my pans. I never use very much. And I usually eat cereal as my late night snack as well....I've tried going to bed hungry and then I lay there and toss and turn and it stinks

So the traditional Pam is plastic... right??? I know the chem. are really REALLY bad for you.... I do have olive oil spray... here is the catch, is it EVOO? If so, what quality? I've heard EVOO can be a rip if you dont know what you are buying... however, we are so broke momentarily that i buy the cheapest brand, always.... I am trying to stear away from teflan... (how do you spell?) another product that is horrible for you... i am working really hard to become more green... but i will always have guilty little pleasures... like diet coke... sprite.... or something ridiculously saltly...

I hate that snacking at night has gotten such a bad rap. It's not really bad, its the bad choices of foods that are bad. The body doesn't know that it is midnight, it just knows it needs fuel, so if you are hungry, eat! Just make it a healthy choice. Whole grain cereals and skim milk are a healthy choice.

As for the oils/cookwear, I try to avoid any coated cookware because they are chemically treated and can rub off into food too. I use cooking spray because the aerosol chemicals are less offensive to me then the teflon chemicals. (No particular reason, just a quirk of mine.) I also use olive oil, but very little of it, when I have to fry something. Usually, I just bake it or sautee it in broth instead of using oils of any kind.

tonya: I am avoiding teflan too (and without a mircowave) so i heat everything w/ the stove... (which has also cut down on convenience eating... or heating leftovers, ect.) but EVERYTHING i try to saute sticks... like egg whites... I eat egg beaters or egg whites almost every morning for breakfast... (i have found that egg white are me, what spinach is to popeye) ... so I use olive oil spray, but i have to use a lot of it... and also when I want to sweat like green peppers and onion... or potato's... (which I am still trying to master the art of crispy unfried potato's)

Turn your heat down. It takes a little longer to cook, but lower heat and constant stirring will keep it from sticking so bad.
