  1. Hi! I am currently trying to overhaul my diet. I am what is considered morbidly obese (I weigh 396 lbs). I have been using the Lose It! weight loss app to track my calories and I have been going to a strength training class on Mondays, Wednesday's and Fridays. I have been going for two weeks now and staying under (barely) the recommended calories (to lose 2 pounds a week) that the app suggested. Well, I ended up gaining like a pound. It kinda makes one want to give up, but I am not. Here is what I eat M-F: for breakfast 3 large eggs and 3 slices of low sodium turkey bacon, for lunch I have a frozen evol meal which varies between 300 to 500 calories depending on the meal, and for a snack, if I am hungry, I will have either an apple and peanut butter or clementine oranges and then for dinner it's usually something that we make at home but the calories are usually in the 800-900 range. I know that sounds like ALOT of calories. The app has me at 2500 a day to lose 2 pounds a week. I also know that as I lose weight, the caloric intake will decrease so I am working on smaller portions. With all that being said, I am wanting to reduce my caloric intake more and eat better(?). I was thinking about switching out the frozen meal for a meal replacement shake (ideal shape) and doing the same for breakfast and a snack during the day if I get hungry. I was thinking of doing this because I am not a morning person and so getting up to make the bacon and eggs and take it to work is a pain, I won't meal prep (I have tried it and ended up eating like one days worth of food and the rest got tossed). I have seen many many meal plans for many many diets and the end result is usually the same, there is so much that I won't eat that it just ends up as not worth it. So, has anyone tried ideal shape and will is it a good idea to replace my meals with the shake? Is there ANY ideas about meal plans? Here is a list of things that I will not eat (as in I have tried them and do not like them) : Hard Boiled eggs, well any egg that isn't scrambled is a no, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage (unless it's red and in a salad), quinoa, cous cous, artichoke, most fish, most nuts, almond milk, soy milk, tofu, rhubarb and spaghetti squash (I did not like the texture). I know this is a long post. I feel like I am wandering around a dark cave blind here and any help that can be provided would be just the best. Thank in advance!
