Tracking versus Planning
Sunday, June 16, 2019
I get so frustrated when I am trying to eat healthy and everyone tells me to track what I am eating. I hate tracking. In the past when a doctor (not mine anymore) insisted I track I did not eat for 3 days because I did not want to write anything down. Then when I did eat according to the nutritionist he sent me to and I gained weight - he accused me of not writing down everything or lying about what I was eating. He did not understand my relationship with carbs.
Now I have a doctor who believes I know what I am doing with my diet. Been practicing a ketogenic diet for almost a year now. I plan all my meals for the week, go shopping, and eat my meal plans. I tell my friends I am on the lunch box diet - what I pack to eat in my lunch box is all I can have for the day. The only exceptions I make are coffee (when I prepared my fixings) and water.
Don't know if I am losing weight. My belt has not gotten tighter for a while, so I know i need to adjust my macros and make sure that is what I am eating.
