I have had a horrible week of eating ... fell off the wagon, ran over by it a couple of times, trying to get back behind the reigns.
I have been working at this and well, it is a struggle. This week, I have identified 2 main issues -- going to post them separately. I have read the books, watched the DVD's etc. I exercise regularly and with vigor. But, I wonder if my problem is eating too many starchy veg -- is this possible? I know the theory is you will lose and not gain if you eat below the 500 (I think) calorie density. But, I have done that and well, I am not losing (not gaining, though). Plus, I am close, but not quite there, to where I need to be, weight wise --.
So, here is the gist of what I have been eating (not this week):
Breakfast -- oatmeal, 9 frozen cherries, 1 TB chia
Lunch and Dinners: One of the following: soup with brown rice - tomatoes, corn, onion, the bean of the week, spinach, carrots and some frozen mixed veggies that are peas, carrots, lima beans, green beans; corn and bean enchiladas (Mary's recipe); roasted taters or w/w pasta and steamed broccoli or spring mix greens with carrots and quinoa.
Snacks: roasted sweet potatoes or raw broccoli or apple or just salad mix greens.
What do you think? Tweaks to suggest? Thanks.
