Trying this out

Monday, January 08, 2007

Allright, so to help me with my weight loss goal, I have decided to start writing in this blog every few days or so to keep me accountable. Hopefully it works and helps!

For the past few days, I've noticed that my carb intake is very high compared to my fat and protein intake. It's my carb intake that makes me go over my total calories for the day. And most of that carb intake comes from sweets (or snacking in general). For example, yesterday at work, a girl brought in chocolate covered almonds. I had A LOT of them! I couldn't stop myself, had absolutely no will power! And I was doing very well with my calories for the day until I entered that into sp.

I think what I have to start doing is adding more protein to my diet to take from the carbs and hopefully that will help curb my snacking cravings. I'm going to go to M&M's and buy a pack of chicken breast and will start having chicken regularly. I want at least one of my meals (lunch or dinner) to consist of mainly protein with veggies, as most of my meals now consist of mainly carbs with veggies (more carbs! haha)

Allright, here's to day 3 and meeting my calorie intake goal today!

    I got so involved in my answer to you that I didn't answer your question. So here goes! I'd make my goal: eating appropriate snacks at work or taking appropriate snacks with me to work. It seems that you've identified your problem area. Best of luck!

    Hi
    Thanks for joining. I'm finding that if I keep what I like and add some good, then it is helpful. I'd take some of the chocolate covered almonds with me, and along with that take a baggie of veggies. In my refrig right now, I have caltiflower, green peppers, apples. Just add some things for now. I would't be able to go cold turkey on the chocolate covered almonds.

    Another thing is the food tracker. There is a way to track your food that you eat on a daily basis and watch your calories. I find it a big help.

    Again, welcome!
