Ugh. I'm full, full, full, and I'm supposed to eat another snack in an hour and a full dinner by 6pm. And then another snack by 8pm. I had to beg the nutritionist not to give me 3 snacks when she did my meal plan. She was worried...get this...that I was not EATING ENOUGH! I'm a size 18/20 100lb. overweight woman, and she thought I was not eating enough! At first I was like, cool, I get 2000 calories a day. Now I'm wondering how the heck I'm going to cram it in. I wonder if I'll actually lose weight. How funny our bodies are!
Here's what I've to eat today:
1 English muffin, whole grain. (that's 2 carb choices. I'm supposed to have 4 carb choices at breakfast.)
1 banana. (that's 2 fruit choices, one fruit choice would be half a banana. And yes, I weighed my banana. I love my digital food scale!)
1 cup of coffee with 2 tbsp. of half n half. (that's my 1 fat choice for the breakfast. So I guess I'm only having one cup of coffee because skim milk in coffee is foul.)
2 tbsp of peanut butter which I spread on the English muffin. (that's 1 protein, and I was supposed to have two.)
Frankly, I'd rather have an extra cup of coffee and skip that protein. But I guess that's why I'm in the state that I'm in, no?
Boston bibb lettuce salad, and half of an enormous tomato. (that's equal to only 1 vegetable choice, because lettuce is "free.")
1 oz of sunflower seeds on the salad was my "fat" for the meal.
3 oz of chopped up steak was my protein. Again, I gypped myself on the protein. I simply didn't want any more meat.
44 oyster crackers were 2 carb choices, but I was supposed to have three. I just didn't want anymore.
I'm supposed to have a snack in 40 minutes. 2 fruit, 1 protein. I bought those V8 fusion drinks. I might have that with a piece of rolled up lunch meat.
And dinner by 6!
Ugh. Roll me down the street, I'm huge!
Drank the V8 fusion drink for snack. It is the blueberry pomegranate and it was pretty yummy. And since it wasn't actual food, I was able to drink it. I have a feeling that I'll be buying lots of these.
Also had 2oz of lean roast beef to make up for the lack of protein from lunch. I'm still really, really full. And I'm supposed to have dinner by 6pm, which is only 2 hours from now.
