Over the last 2 years, I lost 49kg by "being careful" with what I ate. Since Xmas I have lost another 5 but this time have used a calorie counter as I realised getting closer to my goal weight, losses might be harder. I still have 15.5kg to go though.
My problem currently is not having enough calories and I would like some advice on the best way/foods to increase my daily calorie count. I should be having about 1200 a day (atm only 700-800
). Yes, I am dropping weight quickly but I know this is not the best way, however I am not hungry for more food.
A sample day:
Breakfast - low fat yoghurt (85 calories)
Lunch - Homemade soup (70 calories), Sandwich with low fat cheese and salad (200 calories)
Dinner - Lean cuisine and salad (350 calories), diet dessert (135 calories)
Total: 840 calories
I dont eat meat (except fish) and tend to rely on carbs which I am trying to cut down on. Adding cheese/eggs etc means a high fat and cholesterol add.
Any ideas on how to improve/add calories without adding high fat/salt/sugar (addictive :S) foods?
Thanks for any advice.
