People ask me all the time: What is a typical day of eating for you like?
So I decided to start logging what I eat. The #1 rule I go by is to have more protein on your plate over anything else. I also have learned that portion control while hard, it is necessary in order to shed those dreadful pounds. Your biggest downfall will always be eating too much, eating the wrong things, and eating too little. Counting calories isn’t the only thing to watch out for. You could eat very little calories of garbage and see ZERO results.
It’s important that you eat clean and healthier in order to see maximum results. The whole “eating clean” thing will be a little confusing in the beginning but will eventually become effortless. Just pay close attention to the things I post and it will become easier to understand. This is a lifestyle. You can’t just stop. This is something that you need to incorporate into your daily life. Quick note and tip. Remember, more protein, more veggies, fruits, nuts, whole grains, less sugars, white flour foods, fried anything and bad for you condiments. Bad for you condiments? I’m pretty sure I don’t need to spell this out for you, ketchup, ranch dressing, piles of sugars, syrups etc Let’s get real people!! You know exactly what I mean.
Anyways, here is what I ate the other day. This is a typical day of eating for me if i’m at home. I will also blog a “eating on the go” as well. It isn’t too far off. NEVER EVER skip breakfast. I rarely wake up hungry but I know that skipping a meal is not in my plans. You have to eat in order to see results. I know it sounds weird but YES YOU HAVE TO EAT! You just have to eat the right things. I drink water all day. Unless I make a natural juice or have black coffee.
2 eggs, 1 whole, 1 egg white.
1 toasted slice of whole grain wheat toast form Trader Joes, with a light slather of natural almond butter.
1 black coffee and water.
Handful of raw unsalted almonds and water.
I make this salad a lot. I devoured it before I could take a pic. lol This is one I had in my phone. It’s a simple one, red leaf lettuce, baby spinach, 1/2 avocado slices, 1/2 small beet, tomatoes, Mrs Dash original blend seasoning, fresh squeezed lemon, and a dash of sea salt. this time I didn’t add olive oil like I would normally. I am in the process of trying my best not to have as much a day because of the calories. Although they are good calories, I am tightening up my daily calorie intake this week. I do this once in a while to avoid a plateau. Water!
Pure Protein Shake. I had the vanilla one today. This is what they look like. You can get them online directly from them www.pureprotein.net or anywhere else you see a good deal at. Had a glass of water with this too.
