on 9/25/09 12:07 pm
But I did back slide a bit on eating.... i really never have got enough protine or water in....
So my question is about how many calories should i be taking in a day????
And what kind of food do u all eat.........
I need simple meals.
I am a full time mommy and wife haha and i also work a full time job.....so i do not want to be standing over the stove or oven forever! hahahaha.
B= protein bar (18-30g protein depending on which one)
L= Tuna (2-3oz) with mayo & pickles on 1/2 slice of 45 cal sara lee bread)
S= protein bar
D= 2-3oz lean protein with veggies
S= 1tbsp peanutbutter on whole wheat crackers
I am gettin a min. of 60g. protein a day and about 1000 calories. Some days I do better than others.
I also make a lot of soups with beans & lean hamburger. Once a week I make a pot of beans. When I eat out, I get grilled chicken or a taco and eat the filling with cheese and toppings. I make a lot of tortilla pizza's with the mission low carb tortillas.
There are days when I want a big ole fat cheese burger, but HA I cant even eat more than a bite without feeling sick!

I get in about 800 - 900 calories at day.
B - protein shake, 35 grams of protein
L - 3 - 4 oz sliced turkey breast and 1 oz. cheese, rolled up, 24 - 30 grams protein
S- (only if I am hungry) South Beach High protein bar, 10 grams protein
D- 3 oz meat plus some veggies and maybe a tablespoon of starch, 24 grams protein
Breakfast and lunch are real simple, you can modify the lunchmeat for lunch for variety.
Dinner is whatever I make the family and I just pick and choose what I eat.
B coffee...gotta have coffee...my eyes won't open without it...lol...
8 oz 2% milk
4-5 oz cottage cheese (so sue me, i LIKE cottage cheese)
2-3 oz fruit (usually applesauce cause it's easy)
AMS 4 oz brown cow yogurt
half a banana
L 2 mozzarella sticks
half a banana
PMS (oooh, that doesn't sound good!) 8oz 2% milk
half a bagel w/cream cheese
D 4 1/2 - 5 oz of some form of protein (chili is good, has complex carbs)
2 1/2 - 3 oz fruit or veggie
this gives me over 60 grams of protein a day...i also drink about 80 oz of water a day and take my vitamins, of course...never miss the vitamins...i still measure my food (but i don't weigh it) and i read labels carefully...
