So this will be interesting

Breakfast: bowl of mini wheats
second breakfast (around 9:30):cup of coffee, bagel with cream cheese
lunch: 2 cheeseburgers (there was a bbq at work today)
snack: blue berry muffin
2nd snack: cheese and crackers
dinner: tuna (a fillet that was huge) green beans and a mixed veg salad
afterdinner snack: will be corn chips and salsa, I'm just waiting to type this before I eat

overall verdict: lot of carbs, but that is normal for me also in terms of volume this is pretty light so we will see what happens tomorrow

also Deanna, I missed today due to car shopping but I hope to be there tomorrow

So today was kind of a write off

breakfast: one egg, toast, bacon, coffee
Snack: smoothie (1 cup blackberries, ice, half an orange, protein powder, water and frozen yogurt)
lunch: hot dog (terrible I know but it was left over from the BBQ on the weekend and really did need to be eaten) the other half of the orange
Snack: chips and salsa
Dinner: toast with baked beans and grated cheese (awesome bachelor meal)
Snack: haven't decided yet but something for sure as I am getting really hungry

Water intake: ridiculous, that is the only thing I did well today
Verdict, not great, need more veggies that's for sure oh well, tomorrow is a new day

Better day today

Breakfast: bowl of oatmeal
snack: smoothie, pesto chicken sandwich
Lunch: that chicken salsa thing from recipe section, banana
second lunch: more of the salsa but this time in a wrap
pre dinner: basket of fries and some coffee
dinner: a rice bean shrimp veggie concoction I made up
after dinner snack:veggie feta wrap
2nd snack: cheese and crackers

as for portion size: think bigger than it should be, and that would be about right

Hey Sean,

Now here goes the fun part! I really don't know the actually size of your portions, so it is hard to tell if that is the right amount for you. Can you try to eyeball the amount of food you are eating... please Smile

So I have 2 tips for you to start with!
1. Try to make sure that you are getting protein in with all your meals and snacks, especially breakfast is missing it. Do you usually have protein powder in your smoothies?
2. Add some nuts, olive oil, olives or avocado to your meals. Just a small amount is needed.

The Protein, Carbs and Good Fat all work together in your body to get your body in the right healthy balance.

So for Thursday -didn't eat as much for whatever reason

Breakfast: muffin and coffee
snack: multigrain bagel
lunch: 2 wraps with the leftover salsa chicken stuff
2nd lunch: a bowl (no idea how much maybe 2 handfuls) of the rice shrimp veggie dish
dinner: a bowl of pasta (same size as before) with pesto, red pepper and feta cheese
second dinner (after cross fit): another bowl of the same pasta
snack: nachos

Deanna, I will defiantly try to add more protein(I do add some to my shakes) and come up with a better system of judging portion size

So I think the reason why you are so hungry is because you eat so many high glycemic carbs. When you eat these foods, they make you more hungry. Try to eat less pasta and bread and try to eat more fruits and veggies.. tip for the day Wink

Friday/Saturday

Post  Sean on Sat Sep 13, 2008 4:04 pm

Okay so between my grad party yesterday and my hanging out today I think I am going to call it quits and start fresh tomorrow,
Deanna: I will try for less pasta, but man I love my pasta...... you are probably right though as the volume of food I am eating should really be more than enough
