Breakfast= Egg whites plus hot sauce again (I’m so creative) + coffee and SF hazelnut sweetener
Snack: Raspberry Activia Light
Lunch: Black Bean Burger, no bun, cashews + granola bar + fresca
Snack: Cottage Cheese, SF Pudding (I had an oreo w/this –I know it’s sugar but I had such a craving for it so I let myself have a little to fight that craving and fight the urge in the future, baby steps)
I think it’s really important to keep a food journal especially when you are trying to lose weight. What’s even more important is that you should write down everything you have including that spoonful of PB, the finger lick of icing…etc, before you know it you will bring awareness to exactly what you are consuming. Knowledge is power people!
9:30 am: Egg Whites with Hot Sauce (this is seriously so quick to make and a staple of mine in the morning.
11am: Pineapple 100 cal cottage cheese (IT TOOK ME FOREVER TO LIKE COTTAGE CHEESE…but I do now)
Noon: Salad with lots of veggies, avocado, piece of buckwheat bread and dressing on the side (I always do oil based dressings, nothing creamy)
3pm: Protein Bar (I prefer Vega–the vegan bars)
5:30–I did the Level two version of insanity cardio (yikes…but such a good workout!)
7pm: Morningstar Black Bean Burger and hot tea for dinner. A Sugar Free Jell-0 Pudding cup for dessert 🙂
ALSO REMEMBER TO DRINK at least 0.5 oz of water for each pound you weigh. I.e if you weigh 200lbs you should drink 100 oz of water a day–more if you are physically active…which you should be trying to be 🙂
