I had this big plan that I was going to eat three meals a day with no snacks and see how that worked. It worked pretty good til I saw the kidney doc on Friday. My tests weren't as good as they had been (but on the up side they weren't as bad as they have been in the past if that makes any sense.) He wants me back on calorie counting, around 1800 max per day, and wants them spread out over a 5 mini meals, and no food after 7 PM unless it is a special holiday or occasion. The directive, as he calls it, is because larger meals stress the kidneys to filter too much too quickly. The no eating after 7 does make sense to me.
I guess one of the "FUN" things about the weight loss journey is that we have to be adaptable.
I also read a neat quote today that says, "Insanity means doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." HMMMM....
