I add the calories into myfitness pal, and i average 1500-1600 a day.
so i think theres enough calories there??
I dont write the serving size, only what I ate, so if you saw it all, theres alot of food.
kate morgan shake, banana
cashew, almond and walnut nut mix
6inch subways chicken snitzel
skinny cow icecream
weightwatchers passionfruit and lemon thingy
massive bowl of vegetable soup
1 tangelo, 1 orange
and seriously, I am full!!!!
I dont feel hungry during the day, or crave sugar like I used to.
I didnt get any urge to eat the donuts, or the mini pizzas the kids had.
I even resisted the marshmellows the kids had tonight.
I dont want to count calories. I dont want to do it for the rest of my life. I need a eating plan I can just do automatically without thinking too hard.
I counted cals once before on my old eating days, and hit over 3000 calories.
so surely based on that, at 1500 now, I will loose weight.
I am comfortable right now at what I am eating, as I said I dont really crave for anything else. its something I can continue and not feel dprived. something alot of *diets* have failed, as I have done weightwatchers and counted points, and done others with counting calories, and sorry it bores me to tears to do that. i cannot do that forever.
something like this, where i watch fat intake (will relax a little on the fat oncce the liver settles down in a few weeks after my operation) and try eat from every food group. add different colours to my meal, yellow, red, green, and white.
I feel more satisfied with a 6inch mutligrain roll with salad than what i used to eat from subways, the foot long white with no salad.
I am not saying I am perfect, or that i wont go and fall off the wagon. but I am happy with my food, and its a great improvement than a month ago. so while things are going well, I'll stick to it, and yes if I am hungry i will eat, just not high calorie fat filled food, but fresh, natural and low fat.
