Eat to Win…err…Eat to Lose?
Posted by: somuchfattitude In: Food Talk
I’ve been informed I don’t eat enough, which is why I’m always struggling with my weight loss.
I’ve been eating 1300-1500 calories a day, but I work out 5-6 times a week and burn around 1000 calories each time. I ultimately end up netting 300-500 calories a day, which means by body is in starvation mode and then when I eat/drink a little more on the weekends my body holds onto every single calorie as though my big ass will never eat again. Trust me, big ass, you will eat.
I have gained 6lbs. So, this week I am trying something new. Clearly what I’m doing isn’t working, and honestly, hasn’t been working for a hot minute. I’m trying 1800-2000 calories a day this week. My daily diet will look a little like this:
Breakfast: Breakfast Burrito -homemade with southwestern eggbeaters, 50% RF Cabot jalapeno cheese, spicy turkey sausage, peppers and mushrooms wrapped in a flour tortilla. (333 calories)
Snack: Greek Yogurt + Pear (240 calories)
Lunch: Low Carb High Fiber Tortilla, black beans, salsa, avocado & lime + a peach ( 439 calories)
Snack: Celery + Carrots + Feta Spread (135 calories)
Dinner: Cracker Cheesy Chicken, sweet potato fries w/ olive oil, steamed broccoli and whole grain roll w/ 1tbsp. light butter. (664)
Calorie Total = 1809
Today’s weight: 225.2 (tom)
