Food Log 10/21

Thursday, October 22, 2015

As part of my commitment to eating healthy, I have decided that I need post my food journal, not only for your benefit, but mine. I know, you’re thinking, “what does a white girl have to say about weight loss?”

WELL, first off all, I’ve been overweight until I was 19 years old. Not like fat, but not skinny. Let’s say I was always the fat friend. And two, I lost 45 lbs 2 years ago and have kept that weight off (except the last month due to really bad stress and anxiety) but I’m on the road to recovery with medication and clean eating.

Today marks the 2nd day of clean eating. I don’t think I ever ate “badly”, but I have terrible stress binges and I LOOOOOOOOOVEE sugar so I can never say no when I’m emotional/stressed. Hence, why I went to my nutritionist. I need stability and control. It’ more mental than anything. I need to have accountability and weighed in every week.

My nutritionist usually gives meal plans and meals to their clients but since I am already at my goal weight all I have to do is re-learn how to eat and when to eat. It’s all about getting back into the discipline.

With that said, I think I’ll do this every 7 days.

Disclaimer: I’M NOT A DOCTOR. I do what is right for my body and what I know works for me. Please do the same.

The most important thing about my clean eating is when I eat. I never skip breakfast. I eat lunch at noon and snack from 2-4. I eat dinner around 6pm. NO EATING AFTER 7. Starving your body only causes it to gain the weight back faster. 


Day. 1

Breakfast: 1 egg with 4oz of baked wild salmon. No salt.

Lunch: Salad with chicken and no dressing from my school cafe. Super basic.

Snack: 1/4 a cup of plain greek yogurt

Dinner: Sushi. And as in sushi I mean, ahi tuna tartare, 2 pieces of salmon and tuna sashimi, couple bites of seaweed salad.


Day 2:

Breakfast: 1 egg + 1 egg white with tabasco sauce. No salt.

Lunch: Quick stop at Evolution Fresh since I had meetings until 4. I grabbed the most basic green juice they  had. Can’t remember the name.

Snack: 1/4 cup of plain almonds

Dinner: Sushi again. I went out with my parents. This time I minimized to ahi tuna tartare, 1 piece of salmon sashimi and a few bites of seaweed salad (it’s my weakness).

In other words, ahi tuna tartare is the new burger.

As you can tell, the point of this exercise is not to flaunt how much yummy food I’m not eating, but to show restrain and exercise. After all, if you eat average, you look average.


Please let comments with any yummy gluten free/vegan cooking recipes or advice! Thank you 🙂

    I am all about a good cold press juice right now but be careful about what brands of juices you’re getting. I looked into Evolution Fresh and they are missing a crucial ingredient, fiber, that should come with a juice that is purely veggies and fruit. Fooducate is an awesome blog that lets you double check what you’re really putting into your body! Good luck with your food log and new self discipline! I would love to get ideas for new recipes to try out for my own diet!

      Good to know! I drink kombucha on the regular but I’m always worried about the different juices. I’m going on a mission to find the best ones. Hey! Good blog post idea 🙂

    Hi Julia!
    Be careful of undereating. This is an extremely low calorie diet… Your body needs carbs to function! People who restrict are at a higher risk of binging later on, and it’s very damaging to your metabolism. I know you’re seeing a nutritionist, but many are misinformed. Incorporate some starchy vegetables to keep you full! They don’t make you fat and are extremely good for you.
    Good luck on your journey!

      Thanks Katie! I usually eat a lot of veggies but the past two days I’ve been on the run from appointments to treaments so I haven’ actually had time to sit down to eat a lot (I hate it) so I’ve been improvising!

      Thank you!

    Saw you do not eat after 7pm..Could you quickly explain your reasoning? If it is just what you know works best for your body or if your nutritionist recommended it, etc. Thanks!

    • societygrl says:

      Your body goes into a slower state so your metabolism isn’t working as fast so much of the food gets stored to fat if you eat late.

    I’m excited for these food logs because I’m trying to eat healthier and cleaner as well! I’ve always been skinny my whole life but have gained some weight the past few years (freshmen 15 but more like the freshmen 5). I try to eat lots of fruits and veggies along with a lean protein. Any kind of seafood is my fave! But I also can’t resist the pizza temptation most of the time. I will definitely be following you along your journey and I hope it can help me as well 🙂

    Thank you SO much for this! I’ve always wondered about your day-to-day eating and this just confirms to me that I need to be more disciplined! Also, love the quote about eating avg = looking avg. Need to remind myself this more!

    I’ve been eating clean for 7 days and I would kill for Nishino right now. Kill. Would you mind sharing the name of your nutritionist? Good work on the first few days!
