Well, I'm one of those who are supposed to consume 1800 calories (19 g. fat/meal) a day...which sounds great: WOO HOO! I don't have to starve...YAY! But the reality is that finding 1800 NUTRITIOUS calories without overloading on fat, totally carbing out, or eating myself into a coma, is proving to be a real challenge. Today, I've eaten the following:
1/2 peanut butter sandwich
(NOT enough, but I got sucked into meetings before I could eat more, then I crashed, hard, around 11:00)
Two cans of Progresso soup
(Yep...I was starving)
Bag of pretzels
3/4 cup steamed carrots WITH butter
1 cup spinach
and a HALF POUND Cheeseburger (yay for Laura's Lean beef!) that I couldn't finish
All for a grand total of 1280 calories and 34 grams of fat
I still have another snack...gotta have my sweet tonight...but I know it won't come close to making up the difference.
Any ideas for reaching my target? Or should I just not sweat it, and eat what feels right?
