The Daily Struggle we are 4 days into the new year. I cannot for the life of me figure out nutrition. There I said it, it's out in the open. Now what?

I've looked into Daily Burn, which sounds like an okay idea, but...they want money. That's the problem with this damn world. No body will help anybody achieve their goals without wanting to make a buck. And on the other side of the coin, the old cliche "you get what you pay for." I guess if I can't pay for it, I can't get it, huh?

So I'm reaching out to you, my few followers... where do you turn for nutrition advice? If you've been there/done that, what worked for you and why? Have you found a fail proof plan? Any advice will be appreciated.Otherwise I feel doomed to keep repeating the same vicious cycle over and over and over.

And speaking of nutrition... I made up a new recipe tonight. Not too shabby.

Pomegranate Sesame Chicken

  *1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds (0 cal per 1/4 Tbsp)
  *2 Tbsp Heavenly Olive Oils & Vinegars - Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar (5 cal per Tbsp)
  * 1.5-2# BS Chicken Breasts (110 cal per 4oz)
In a Medium/Large Bowl mix the sesame seeds and olive oil.You could leave the breasts whole or use tenders, but being lazy I didn't have time to unthaw the chicken completely so I sliced it in to equally sized pieces.  

Marinade the chicken, in the fridge, for at least a half an hour. If in a pinch toss and let sit while you warm the pan.

Toss the chicken and marinade into a pan heated to Medium. Cook, turning occasionally until no longer pink. Do not over cook.
We paired it with steamed sweet peas and brown rice. Yum!
It was Bubba approved!

Look at - it's free and their tracking software helped when we did the first 'biggest loser' thing on the Dec08 board.
