A recent day wherein 2 lbs were lost:
Chocolate protein shake with around 240 calories and 20 grams of protein.
2 organic Brown rice cakes – each cake has 25 calories and 0 fat or protein
1 lite mozzarella string cheese stick – 50 calories, 6 grams protein
1 pkg (2 oz) deli meat- 90 calories 8 grams of protein and 5 g of fat
1 apple and 1 Peach
1 Cup of coffee with vanilla almond milk as creamer
½ can beefy vegetable soup. 1 cup. About 120 calories, 6 grams protein and a few grams of fat.
The food was a little over 500 calories but this is a sample of what I threw together in a lunchbag for my daughter for a day of activity and I’m not sure she even felt hungry enough to eat the peach. She gave a few bites of rice cake to the dog. We LIKE the above foods and they are foods we normally eat. I do not eat gluten, so I substitute the rice cake for Dr. Simeon’s suggested melba toast or grissini. The lunch meat I bought is individually packed, so it is a convenience food, as was the ready-to-eat soup. The most attention was given to refilling a water bottle throughout the day, so I estimate about a gallon of water was taken in that day.
The next day, two pounds of fat were gone forever!
