Food Log 10/21
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.
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.
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.
