I just ate one of the larger meals I used to eat all the time, probably about 2 times a month or more. And the calorie count on it was over 2,000!! WOW! I don't know why I ate it today, I just took the day off, not upset or out of any type of willpower breakdown, just wanted to. I have been doing great sticking in my calorie range every day, exercising 6 days a week, and overall it is going well. But I think at some point I looked back with rose colored glasses a tiny bit, just kind of like hm, I wonder how I actually gained all this weight?
Having this meal and tracking it was kind of eye opening. I mean I had tried to figure before what I used to eat in a day and I think I underestimated how many calories I was eating before I began trying to lose weight. It all kind of came back to me after logging this large meal. This meal that should have been like....4 meals instead of one. It also amazes me that yes, if you eat too fast you won't feel full before you eat too much.
If you eat processed foods the salt and fat combo make it way to easy to over eat.
And that really tracking and logging food and staying in range isn't that hard.
Anyway. I'm glad I had this meal, I enjoyed it. I have no plans to do it again any time soon. I look forward to being back on point tomorrow. I am rather shocked at how many calories I was eating before. Nobody needs that much food unless they are like training for an iron man or something, LOL. It is insane, I don't even understand how I used to eat this way all the time. No wonder I was miserable! It is WAY too much food!
Just so shocking....
