I'm asking this because my mom seems to think that I should be taking this into account.
She asked me what my calories were and what I ate yesterday, which was:
Breakfast: oatmeal packet
2 slices of wheat toast with light butter
Lunch: home made soup (consisting of pasta noodles, beans, onions, garlic, marinara, and chicken broth) 203 calories a serving.
Dinner: subway club sandwich
she told me to cut out all breads, pastas, and eat only 1 1/2 packet of oatmeal for breakfast. yogurt with grapenuts for lunch, and 2 eggs for dinner with a small salad.
She kept telling me that this is why I'm not losing, "Because you're not using your calories wisely."
This was just yesterday's meal. Normally I do eat veggies for both lunch and dinner.
Breakfast: same as above
Lunch: tuna sandwich with 2 cups of broccoli
dinner: fish or chicken with 2 cups of broccoli and rice or lentils.
