I gained 2 lbs this week, and i havent cheated. I have been really really stressed, but I have been exercising and eating everything I am allowed to eat. This week has been **** on me so far, and then to find out i gained weight isnt helping the stress level for me. My typical menu:
Breakfast- 2 eggs scrambled with spinach and crumbled turkey bacon. Fresh strawberries or blueberries and milk
snack- string cheese or cucumber slices
Lunch- Salad with Oil and vinegar and chicken breast OR whole wheat tortilla with turkey breast, cheese and bean sprouts (tortilla I limit to 2 times a week)
snack- string cheese or peanuts
Dinner- Taco soup or grilled chicken, spinach, broccoli, or salad.
dessert- Jello or sf fudgesicle.
I drink ALOT of water, usually about 120 ounces a day. Could stress really be affecting my body and metabolism that much? Any help would be great...
