Did any of you see that amazing sunrise this morning? I missed the very best part as I was driving to the station and the side window was steamed up and I couldn’t clear it. But there was plenty of beautiful sunrise to enjoy when I did get there.
It was incredible. Freezing cold though. I took breakfast and lunch to work again today. Breakfast was half a watermelon and a white nectarine. 240 calories. Salad for lunch made with shredded white cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, spring onions, lettuce and 50 g houmous. 376 calories. I was tired this evening so I had a very easy supper of a pot of soup and I needed something with it because I was low on calories anyway and very hungry. So I added 6 falafels, half the packet. I like these falafels. Not an obvious combination but it worked quite well actually. 487 calories.
The numbers were good for calories today at 1,119 for the day. In addition to the meals listed above I had one cup of tea with some soya milk in it. The rest of the day I drink various teas without any milk, black coffee and water.
The ratios were not. I could have improved them by eating more carbs but I think I have eaten enough today and will have to mark this day down as a high fat day, even though it didn’t feel like one. It is much too easy to eat too much fat, even when you think you are being careful
% of calories consumed as
carbohydrates = 52%
protein = 13%
fats = 35%
Good Fats keep you full longer, so don’t let them scare you. Carbs will raise your sugar cravings causing hunger to spike and recede. Even good carbs. Good Fats will do your body, your joints, your muscles and yes, even your mind and your waistline good.
Amazing sunrise too.
