Day 3 Fear to Lose Weight

Friday, January 08, 2016

Ok, so I stayed within my calories...YAY! However, I did not eat healthy and found myself making myself eat enough calories. Does that make sense? So today when I really truly tried to eat a certain amount of calories I found out that I did not eat enough. I didn't have snacks, so maybe I should put some healthy snacks in there. I need help. I know if I don't eat my calories then I'm starving myself but I can't just eat whatever to fill in the gap. I had up to 800 calories left for dinner. I ate a chicken salad and then still had 350ish calls left. So I ate a bag of microwave popcorn (I know...so bad for you) and then I ate Keebler peanut butter crackers. I still have 43 calories left. Will someone please help me figure out how to plan enough meals/snacks that are healthy. Or direct me to a place for help. I really want to do this and i know it will be a learning and challenging journey 🌻

    I agree with SHANTRA7, and also add Greek Yogurt to the list.

    Air pop popcorn is a great snack, full of fiber!

    I often put my meal plan in before I eat it and wiggle things around until it looks balanced and then that's what I eat. Not sure if that would help you. It helps me figure this part of it out though. I stop playing with the tracker when I'm happy with what I will be having.

    Use your meal / food tracker and there you'll find meal and snack ideas. Also, try to prep and plan when you can. You can Google healthy food staples like eggs, fruit, walnuts, lean proteins and whole grains just to name a few.
