Hello everyone! I had an awesome week this week! Super excited after a one pound gain last week. It seems to happen that way every so often I’ll either stay the same or gain a pound and then the next week is awesome. So anyways I’m glad that I am still on track with things.
This week I wanted to start sharing (because several have asked) what my diet is consisting of. I’m starting this with veggies. Now when I was growing up I was not taught good nutrition at all. I was definately a latch key kid and I just ate what was in the fridge or cupboard and tasted good. I really thought until last September when I started going to Weightwise that all veggies were good for you and they were all the same. So since I do not like veggies at all my veggie consupmtion consisted of potatoes and corn for the most part maybe green beans or peas every once in awhile. And you will see when I share the list that none of these things are on the list except green beans. A salad if I was trying to eat healthy. I was telling someone recently that I literally believed that the only way to eat “healthy” was to eat salads and fruit and nothing else. So as I’m sure you can figure out that would never last long before I was off the wagon and scarfing down chips, candy, cookies, whatever tasted good. I even remember while doing Weight Watchers being told you can have all the veggies you want, awesome potatoes everyday right. Well now I know why I wasn’t so successful.
So I have learned from Weightwise what the “good” veggies are and what a serving size is.
Beans (green, wax, italian)
*Serving sizes (cause it isn’t like WeightWatchers where you can have all you want) 1 serving has 28 calories, 5 grams of carbs, 2 grams protein, and 0 grams of fat. One serving is 1/2 a cup if cooked and 1 cup if raw.
Try to have 2 serving for lunch and 2 serving for dinner along with your fruit and protein.
I will add info about fruit, protein, and fats later. Thanks for reading as always.
