This time I am making up my own diet. I have pretty much decided to stay away from sugar. I only eat 1 piece of bread a day (if any). I don't limit my veggies or fruits (but I've never been one to go overboard on those anyways). I haven't really had potatoes or pasta yet, but I will definately do those in moderation! I am also watching serving sizes. I have eaten Frito's, but have counted out 32 chips and then stopped. My advice is that if you can't stop after 32, don't even start! I am probably also doing low calorie as I don't eat a ton of food in a day. I have 2 smaller meals and then a larger meal. I am trying not to eat much fast food, but I have had a sub from Subway and a salad from McDonalds.
A sample menu for me might look like this:
B- 2-3 eggs scrambled and bacon or sausage
L- pizza burger (no bun) and carrot sticks, Diet Coke
S- Stir fry beef/onions with 1 small tortilla, a few cashews
I'm sure if you figured out the calories, they would be very minimal. It's also fairly low in carbs. I'm not really looking for a critique of my diet. It's working for me and how I was eating before this was not healthy, neither was being almost 100 lbs. overweight. Like I have said before, it would be nothing for me to have 8-10 cookies, eat 2 double cheeseburgers and a large fry, a candy bar, several cans of Coke, etc - in one day!
I'm hoping that with a lot of accountability and prayer, that this might be the year I actually see my goal weight. It's always been 147. That's what was on my drivers permit when I started driving. Even then, I don't think I was what anyone would call "skinny".
