Food Fight

I ate all day…

…and only had 1165 calories. That’s what happens when I plan out what I am going to eat: I buy healthy food and don’t eat out. Plus I plan lots of healthy snacks and I feel like I have lots to eat. I think the major sources of extra calories for me are:

  • Alcohol
  • Eating at restaurants
  • Snacking late at night

So if I don’t go out as much and go to bed at a decent time, I think I would lose weight easily.

Here’s what I ate yesterday, spread out over 5 meals:

  • Bran flakes with soy milk
  • A pear, an orange, and a nectarine
  • Lots of broccoli
  • An oatmeal chocolate chip cookie
  • Cottage cheese
  • Vegetable barley soup
  • Two eggs
  • Whole wheat toast
  • Whole wheat pita
  • Eggplant humus

That’s a lot of food, right? And it was mostly prepared food. The only thing I cooked, other than microwaving, was the eggs, so it was easy too. The main thing was that I ate only whole grains, and lots of fruits and vegetables. It was a vegetarian day, but that is because I had tuna the day before and I am thinking about having some chicken tonight for dinner. I didn’t reach my protein goal of 50 grams, but I got over 35, which isn’t too bad.

Today I haven’t done as well because I have eaten a fair amount of white bread. I am still going to be around 1250 calories though. I really need to focus on eating more vegetables and protein. And then surviving the weekend and then houseguests next week will be a real challenge.
