My weight is about 117 lbs and I would like to lose SOME pounds which mean my weight goal is 110 lbs. I have eaten about 1000-1200 cals per day. The diet worked for some time but then I understood what I was doing:
I ate TOO MUCH carbs, and too less proteins and fat. So, after facing this I started to think I would have to do something. But I have continued with my old stragery thinking maybe this only is momentary. Unfortunately, it isn’t. I must change my eating habits.
The diet I have now is not working! Look at these countings about the average level of the week.
Cals: 870 cal (+ some fruit and yogurt that I didn’t count)
Protein: 54 grams
Carbs: 115 grams (!)
Fat: 30 grams (!!)
No way to work!
Ketosis is not my thing, I suppose. Why? A lot of fat is not my cup of tea but of course I have to cut carbs to get the super weight loss. Luckily, there is no such a long way to my goals, only 7 lbs to go.
Okay, let’s think about I will start to eat 50-60 grams carbs per day. What do this mean practically?
Could I eat cauliflower-broccoli-carrot-mixing? I checked 3,6 grams carbs/100 g. Eating 250 grams means 9 grams carbs. Not a lot or what do you say? Do you count paprika, cucumber and tomatoes normally? If I will ate about 700 grams these per day?
OMG, I eat TOO MUCH yogurt and it’s not for good!
39 cal/p 3,6 g/carbs 5,9 g and fat 0,1 grams. That is my favorite: I eat in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening and so on. I decided to take instead these: cottage cheese and fromage frais. Okay, with the light line still, no butter or cream included. Cheese for me?
Chicken, eggs (I love eggs, really), red meat a bit (elk), cold cuts, tuna. How much these kind of products per day?
Okay. I have always thought is not a good idea to eat much fat. The magazines for women have learnt a lot but of course fat-free diet doesn’t work at all - I have noticed that. Can I eat nuts? Cashewnuts are my favorites: 29 grams carbs, 46 grams fat and I do love them. Hmm, if I will eat 30 grams, I get about 8,7 grams carbs. Not a lot?
I do know, I eat not a lot. I have counted bubblegums too. Can I eat bubblegum if I start a new diet?
Then the most important questions:
I have decided to eat 1000-1200 cals per day? I do gym training about 4 times a week and walking too. I will try to train a lot. I think my biggest problem is now my diet (food points) and I can handle with the training.
Then about 240 cal carbs, 425 cal protein and 335 cal fat. Can you give me some examples about eating during the day?
Thanks a lot, I do need some help. xxx
