I choose what I feel is best for me and eat what I will enjoy. I usually drink only coffee with almond milk in the morning and I have a snack such as a fruit around noon. Often I only eat 1 full meal at dinner with the family. I will cook steak and have a salad with some low fat dressing or none at all. I’ve made a fresh apple variant of South African Bobotie that my kids love.
We regularly eat cut apples cooked in a sauce pan. I only add cinnamon and salt (not sugar or splenda) and we all love it. Even though Dr. Simeon’s did not advise using whole eggs, we have made KoreanBibimbap. We order fajitas when out to eat at mexican restaurants. Though the above seems REALLY boring to some, we choose not to think a whole lot about food.
When we are out at a fast food place, I try to make a meal around 250 or 300 calories, according to their provided nutrition information. I might eat the inside of a taco (without cheese) or a side salad with a little grilled chicken. I’m trying to move my old stored fat OUT of my body, so my goal is to not put any new fat in, so I choose low-fat options.
If I happen to have something that is “bad”, I drink a bunch of extra water.
This has happened when I ordered a coffee with creamer. Some creamer is sweetened and full fat, others are not. I didn’t specify and ended up drinking a big LOADED sweet coffee for a night shift. I don’t know if it was the coffee that kept me awake or the constant running to the bathroom! I didn’t weigh until about 30 hours after my coffee, which was 48 hours after my last weigh in.
I had still lost 4 lbs!
The only problem was: The extra sugar primed my brain for sugar. And I craved it again for a day or so. #TheStruggleIsReal
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!
