Having decided to be more sensible with my eating so I can follow a lifelong and sustainable plan, with no extremes of starving or bingeing, I revisited the ‘My Fitness Pal’ app to track what I am eating. I put in my weight and how much I want to lose a week and it has told me to consume 1,200 calories a day. Of those calories, I am trying to eat mainly plant food i.e. fruits and vegetables. But in theory I can have whatever I like, as long as I don’t go over my total allowance for the day. If I do, I will have to exercise it all off as it also enables you to track exercise and calories burned.
The girl done good!
I had 2 pink lady apples for breakfast and 2 cups of tea throughout the morning.
At lunch time I popped in to Pure for a salad and I chose the ‘Pure Protein’. Lots of green leaves which I covered in the fat free kale dressing the salad came with. Under the leaves were lots of yummy little nuggets of food such as avocado and turkey. I enjoyed this salad and it was 422 calories, including the dressing. Another cup of tea and lots of water got me through the afternoon.
Dinner was a rather unusual combination of bits and pieces I found in the fridge or cupboard. 4 new potatoes, 1 corn cob, sugar snap peas, some prawns and salmon with 15g butter. All of this was only 395 calories!
I feel completely sated and have no need of anything else to eat even though I have 364 calories remaining ( I had 224 calories left but when I put in the walking I have done today it gave me an additional 140). I shall go to bed knowing I have lots of calories left over, feeling very pleased I have behaved today.
Well done. By now, you will have been doing this for almost a week now. How is it working out?
