I am currently working on a 'food & drink list' - a quick and easy guide I can take with me wherever I go, so I know what to eat or drink. The idea is to not have to think, because I am very easily overwhelmed and almost always make bad choices. Everything that I'm "allowed" to have will be on this great list. It's something new, as I'm desperate - I think I need these rules to get me started then once I've lost some weight and gained control of myself, I'll be able to losen up a bit and not make so many things "illegal".
I've been doing a lot of research, and am trying to come up with a very healthy and easy to follow list, where I can't go wrong.
Anyway... today I was working on the beverage section, as it seemed like the easiest to complete.
Was wondering if I can get some feedback? This is what I have so far -
Allowed all the time:
Lemon/Lime water (from 100% juice)
Herbal teas, especially green, hot or cold
Some of the time:
100% cranberry juice (for my urinary tract, I'm prone to UTI's)
100% pineapple juice, prune juice, orange juice and apple cider
1% chocolate milk
low fat/sugar soy milk
homemade fruit slushies/smoothies
After really hard workout:
Sound good so far? Can anyone come up with some additions? The idea is to not get bored, feel like I have a range of beverages to choose from while at the same time, getting very few calories from liquids (unless using a meal replacement)
Do you think I'm on the right track?
I'm trying to get over a Coca Cola and Vanilla Cappuccino addiction. I need to stay away Coke... I don't want to drink any of the diet varieties because I want to stay away from sodas all together. I think I may have a soft spot for sugar.
Thanks in advance, I really
appreciate any input!!
