Kara's Healthy Eating Plan
The Diet: Breakfast is oatmeal with strawberries or melon. For lunch, Kara eats lentil or vegetable-barley soup with apricots or berries. At dinner, she has a small piece of lean red meat, brown rice, and corn on the cob. Kara snacks on fruit, fat-free yogurt, and carrots.
The Workout: Kara does an hour of running or cycling six days a week and weight-trains twice a week.
Biggest Temptation: Chocolate candy. "When I get a craving, I dump a small package of M&M's into a bowl of plain popcorn and munch away."
What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Fitted tops. "I used to buy men's shirts so I wouldn't have to shop in the 'big girl' stores. Now I can wear things that hug my body."
