This is a guest post shared by follower Brenda! Thank you Brenda for sharing your story and recipe while I enjoy some time off with our new baby!! 

My name is Brenda Hyatt. I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery on August 13, 2014 and follow FoodCoachMe along with my dietitian. I have lost 106 lbs in one year!

It was hard in the beginning to change how I viewed food and my new way of low carb eating. FoodCoach.Me is such a great help, I don’t believe I would have been as successful without the recipes and advice. I stuck with it and now it is second nature to me. I am 53 years old and have been overweight my entire life. I tried all the diets even low carb, never with much success and gaining more weight. I now am living my dream, being at a “normal” weight, healthy, happy and active!!

I have found for me to be successful in what I choose to eat I have to have a plan. Amen, Brenda!!! When I grill, I grill more than I need. Today I grilled these hamburgers and honey mustard chicken tenderloins. I’ll have enough for dinner and lunch and the rest I freeze. I have a freezer bin that I keep cooked meals ready to go such as these hamburgers, cooked shredded chicken, meatloaf, or any left over dinners. So on the days I feel overwhelmed or in a hurry I have a quick ready to go meal without worry and plenty of variety.


Congratulations to Brenda on finding her way to living life to the fullest without sacrificing great tasting, healthy foods! Isn’t she an inspiration!?!
