What Are You Eating?

As I said yesterday, I’ve started a new eating program and a new workout program (Jillian’s Body Shred! I am only two workouts in and OUCH. My body is sore!!).

I’m eating [mostly] clean now and I’m eating carbs like a real person . I’m trying to build muscle while I lose fat, so I’m following a 40/40/20 diet. I almost hit my macros yesterday!

Here’s what I’m eating (pretty much every day is the same aside from dinner):

Breakfast (257 Calories):

Coffee with Sugar Free Creamer
Oikos Triple Zero Strawberry Greek Yogurt
3oz lean ham (I use Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked)

Mid-Morning Snack (1.5 Hours Pre-workout – 340 Calories):

1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 tsp Honey
1/2 cup 1% fat cottage cheese
3.5 oz chicken

Lunch (Right After My Workout 450 calories):

Atkins Day Break Creamy Chocolate Shake
2 slices Brownberry Multi-Grain Bread
3oz Deli Fresh Chicken (yes, lunch meat. I need convenience)
Romaine Lettuce

Afternoon Snack (250 calories):

Starkist tuna packet
Gala Apple
1/2 cup 1% fat cottage cheese

Dinner (approximately 300-500 calories):

Dinner is where I eat the brunt of my veggies for the day. I try to go lower on the carbs. Dinner is usually about 400 calories. If it’s on the lower end, I might add a late night snack of celery and peanut butter or homemade ranch (from plain greek yogurt if I don’t need too many calories).

I’m trying to stay around 1700 calories a day!

So what are you eating?

  1. Carbs! Yay!

    How do you like the consistent snacks? Does it help you feel more satisfied throughout the day? It’s one of the things I need to work on this year with my refocus.

    The food plan I follow is called Trim Healthy Mama (of which I am ironically none of those things) and in a nutshell I have low carb meals that range in fat or I have moderate healthy carbs with low fat. It gives me some carb freedom without going ham on bagels and bread like I did during the holidays 😉

    • That sounds like a good plan! I cannot eat low carb at all with the workouts I’m doing. I am pushing myself so hard that I would die, I think! LOL I’m eating more like a body builder, I guess, because I do want to build muscle while I lose fat. I’ve always eaten the same amount of meals throughout the day, even when I ate low carb, I’m just eating more “solid” food, I suppose, so I do not feel hungry at all. It’s kind of like when meal time rolls around I’m thinking “already?”. If I don’t lose, I’ll need to adjust my calories, I think.
