One of the rules of eating clean is to eat every 2 -3 hours. I focused on this today because I have not wanted to eat lately. A lot of times, this is what keeps weight on me because I do not consume enough calories and my body does not like it. Plus I have hypothyroidism, which makes this worse. So how did I do with eating every 2 - 3 hours. Not bad.
Here is my day of eating:
I started my morning off drinking coffee with cream. (I will try and give the cream up at a later date) Cannot do everything at once.
9:00am - 10:30am
Plum, 2 hardboiled eggs, coffee, and 16 oz water
This meal was extremely hard for me to eat but I got it down. Just did not want to eat.
Lunch at 1pm
Nutty chicken salad from Jason's Deli. Delicious.
I also had four thin mint like cookies. We had an ice cream social that I had to set up for and the cookie smell drove me nuts, so I ate a couple. Not a sweet person so I was a little sad that I ate these.
Home from work and extremely hungry. Ate 7 carrot sticks with light ranch dressing.
Seafood salad with a slice of cornbread that I made. The salad was yummy and purchased at Walmart. Good to have on hand for me when I just want something light.
I also had several more 16 ounces of water to drink for a total of 80 ounces.
Walked 20 minutes before work.
Walked 20 minutes around 9pm.
I think overall I had a good day.
