Some of my friends use http://www.myfitnesspal.com to track what they eat and how much they exercise. I decided to try it today. If you track Weight Watchers points it does work and help you lose weight. But I want to be aware of all the calories I eat. With WW, too many foods are classified as having zero points when actually they have calories and they obviously add up. Especially when you eat quite a lot of fruit and vegetables like I do. So I am trying calorie counting and My Fitness Pal is an easy and free way to track them.
Breakfast and cups of tea consumed during the morning.
|Pod – Superfood Scrambled Eggs – No Toast, 1 container||259||1||19||21|
|Pret – Flat White Coffee, 1 cup||75||7||3||5|
|Tetley – Tea With Semi Skimmed Milk, 2 mug||30||4||1||3|
Oh dear, my camera seems to be jammed, here he is again
This was not what I expected. It was called an Itsu Potsu 7 Veg and I assumed it was a miso soup or veggie broth full of vegetables. It was actually a mix of brown and wild rice with 7 vegetables. It was tasty but quite dry. You can choose a broth to have with it and I will do that next time – memo to self to read labels properly.
|Itsu Potsu – 7 Veg With Rice, 1 bowl||498||74||20||12|
|Itsu – Crab California, 1 container||238||20||14||9|
For supper I made a quick and easy smoothie. I don’t need to list out the ingredients as I can let My Fitness Pal do that
|Tofu – Firm (nigari), 1 cup||176||4||11||21|
|Fruit – Banana – Peeled, 150 g||89||24||0||1|
|Essential Waitrose – Frozen Berries, 100 g||27||6||0||1|
|Spinach – Raw, 1 cup||7||1||0||1|
|Ecomil – Bio Hazelnut Milk, 200 mL||101||13||5||2|
I have enjoyed my day tracking what I ate and drank. Besides the food and drink I consumed here, I also ate a tangerine and drank water . Another healthy day.
Even better, I under-ate by 300 calories today. I set it up so I would lose 1 pound a week but I ate less than my daily allowance so hopefully I will lose a bit more this week. My daily total is higher than you may expect because I earned 220 by walking.
