I'm mostly asking this question to make sure that there isn't something I'm overlooking. I've been eating a fairly specific diet for about the last 6 months - mostly because I like it - and I've gained about 15 lbs over the same period.
Everyday for breakfast I have a Shaklee Soy Powder protein shake mixed with a banana; crushed ice; water; and either blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries. (And 2 cups of coffee)
For lunch I have a mixed green salad with cashews, sunflower seeds, and golden raisins, with Ranch dressing. Also - 2 pieces of Pepperidge Farm Whole Grain bread with Country Crock.
And then for dinner I have various things.
I'm asking if there is something in what I listed for breakfast or lunch that would be the culprit.
It very well may be whatever I have for Dinner, but I want to make sure that what I presume to be a healthy diet (that I enjoy) isn't the problem.
Also - additional info: I quit smoking in October. I've never thought twice about my diet before this period - my favorite dessert was a can of Vanilla Frosting. I weigh (now) 216 lbs, 6'1, 37 years old.
