Yesterday, I increased the amount of food I ate. I also went over-board and ate less than healthy choices. As Ivy commented, it was high in salt.
Why on earth would I do such a thing? I have been so good for 3 months and suddenly, I went rogue.
My health plan is to listen to myself; I don't eat once I feel full, I choose (except yesterday) food that will help me get healthier and disregard the ones that are not helping. I exercise but if I encounter a problem I slow down my training. I'm really in tuned with my body.
I expect results and I meet them every time. I keep track of those results daily. My problem is I couldn't explain the latest results on the scale and that worries me.
Even yesterday, I had added 2 toasts with natural PB to my breakfast (minus the cereals), I had nachos for lunch and to add in-salt to the day, burger and fries for supper... and I lost .4 pound!
Well when I say yesterday was a food orgy I might be exaggerating. If I compare yesterday with any day I used to have before embarking on this health journey there is quite a difference: The PB is natural, no high salt or sugar content. I had less nachos than I would have had and the nachos were not laced with sour cream, instead I just had a spoon full of plain Greak Yoghurt. I ate the burger but not all the fries like I used to and I would have had chips and chocolate in the evening, and wine. Yesterday I didn't eat any snacks and drank only water.
I also walked about 24 K steps as opposed to my past life where, if I measure the distance between the fridge and the sofa, I walked maybe 500 steps.
So I can explain why I lost .4 pound yesterday. I'm going to increase my calorie intake to keep the loss at a normal rate but I will only increase it with healthy choices (More fruits and vegetables). I'll keep a really close tab of where my weight is going.
I feel bad; so many of you have the opposite problem, and here I am complaining about losing weight too fast, but the whole exercise is to learn about how to be healthy and gaining weight or losing weight too fast is just not healthy!Any suggestions about healthy snacks?
