Kimmarie's Healthy Eating Plan

The Diet: Breakfast is a rice cake with reduced-fat peanut butter and honey. Lunch: plain tuna, whole-grain crackers, and a green vegetable. Dinner: chicken or fish and a salad. Snacks: fruit, grape tomatoes, and trail-mix bars.

The Workout: Kimmarie does two hours of tae kwon do four times a week and runs three and a half miles three days a week. She also does 30 to 60 minutes of yoga each day.

Biggest Temptation: Cheesy Mexican food. "When I need a fix, I'll order a lower-fat alternative like fajitas and dip my chips in salsa instead of guacamole."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Flat-front pants. "I used to wear pleats or elastic-waist pants to give my belly room. Now I look great in snug-fitting styles."

I think her results are wonderful. Like her, I have blood pressure issues too. I take two different meds for my blood pressure. I need someone to help me.

I am inspired. I am also 5'5" and weigh 200 pounds. I doubt I can go with the rice cake though - I will substitute another low fat breakfast. She has done well.
