Well, seems as time completely flew away from me again yesterday, I am going to have to present you with what I ate on today instead.
I apologise for the lack of images in this one! I’m afraid you’re going to have to settle with My Fitness Pal instead. On the plus side, this will give you a look at the amount of calories I eat and how I split that out into carbs, proteins and fats!
As you can tell, I try to build most of my meals around a good solid protein source. My body in particular reacts well to protein. I feel full but not too heavy or bloated (which many people can confuse with a feeling of fullness).
Vegetables are another staple in my diet! I sometimes run low on time to get these cooked up so what il do instead is buy a whole broccoli, chop it up really small and eat raw. Tastes very good! Although, for the ‘normal’ palette, it may take some getting used to. During the summer I eat quite a lot of raw foods – just like a salad but with a few veg thrown in to mix it up!
From my calories at the bottom you can see that I did go over my allocation of sugar for the day. I find it really difficult to cut out sugar completely so I try to keep my sources as natural as possible. Fresh fruits, dried fruits and the odd bit of honey mostly. I’m not too concerned about these sources of sugar because they’re not processed by the body in the same way the chemical derived sugars are (I’m talking about the ones on the back of the packets that you probably can’t even pronounce – Dextrose, High-fructose corn syrup, Sucrose etc etc). In any form, sugar is a simple carbohydrate that should be treated with caution.
It’s all about making the right, informed decisions. Not a diet!!!
Here’s the one picture I did manage to get! My scrumptious dinner:
