I've visited a few sites to calculate how many calories I should be eating a day...
I get lots of different numbers from different sites but think my 1 600 ~ 1 800 is where i should be. Back in the old days when I ate diet products filled with Aspartame, Sugar and Salt and processed foods I was able to eat a diet of 1 400 a day and managed easily.
With clean eating for some reason I am finding this impossible, I have to go over.
Not only am I finding that the healthy foods are more expensive but also have added calories
There are days like today where i really struggled to stay within my calories...50g of Brazilian nuts, ( about 8 pieces ) when I worked it out was over 300 calories.
I love nuts and nuts are so good, but with the calories I am wondering if worth it.
Okay I did have a glass of wine tonight with my hubby, but honestly, you have to enjoy life, its not like I had a whole bottle....I had a glass!!!!
For March I am also weighing myself daily ( March only for group challenge )
And see how the number controls one's moods.
I lost 500g from last Thursday to yesterday...
Was thrilled as I have been running and training daily
Then this morning....after burning 930 calories yesterday after doing a 5km run and taught a class I am up 700g!!!
What the hell....
I loved the days I never worried about the scale.
I cant wait for my 17 day diet book to arrive as I do think this plan is going to shake things up for me....something after two years and one year of maintaining this weight I need...
