Gluten free diets (if you can stomach the food) can cut out a lot of calories. It's more expensive, but generally healthier for you anyway. We did it for a month and we both straight up lost 10 lbs. no change in activity either.
Baking is harder, but adding pudding to cakes and breads makes them less dry and crappy tasting. We're still testing how much pudding (Vanilla) to put in regular ol' bread. Last load was too squishy and mushy.
But.... it takes a lot of will power not to down a bag of Oreo's when you see 'em.
Snowpocalyse is over here. Hopefully that will be the last of the major snow storms. We got about a foot, maybe a foot and a half.
