I've had a few girls ask me about what I eat/or ATE when I was losing weight. First of all.. they are one in the same! ;o) I EAT better now than I did when I first started losing because I've learned ALOT along the way. I thought it would be fun to post a sample day for anyone interested!
2 cups of coffee with sugar-free vanilla creamer. ( I KNOW... It's a splurge!)
Omelet- 1 whole egg, 2 additional egg whites, one t olive oil, onions, mushrooms, fresh garlic, spinach. Whip it up and enjoy. (Sometimes I add chicken to this!)
Marathon protein bar! YUM!
Chicken sandwich: 1 sandwich thin, lettuce, onions, 1/4 avocado, cucumber, sprouts, 2-3 ounces chicken, a slice of pepper jack cheese and 1 t Italian dressing.
2 cuties (little oranges) 60 calorie string cheese, 15 almonds.
VARIES. This is usually just a healthy version of WHATEVER.. this week I've had:
Quinoa Hawaiian haystacks, turkey taco salad, chicken Alfredo over squash, whole grain chicken enchiladas, squash/chicken, I just kind of eat a normal DINNER with a whole grain twist.
I do NOT always have one UNLESS I've worked out. In this case I eat a fruit. (Just trying to get some complex carbs in after a major workout!) I also will add cottage cheese if I have any.. If I don't I end up with more string cheese usually!
When I'm having the munchies in the afternoon I am in the habit of popping a bag of popcorn. Once again it's an opportunity to mindlessly eat but with few calories and technically still whole grain! ;o) When I'm approaching the TOM... this happens very frequently. I also tend to brew more coffee at this time of day and have another cup or two.
This is just a sample (basically it's what I ate yesterday!) I do have lots of other suggestions and a list of 200-300 calorie meal ideas if anyone is interested. :o)
