I have been gone for a while, I sadly gave up on my diet, which I am now referring to as a lifestyle change. I am now trying to make this time around more successful than prior attempts.
Nevertheless my recommended caloric intake to lose weight is 2700 calories, I am finding it hard to eat 2700 calories. I personally find it absolutely astounding as I am overweight and if it's anything I know how to do it's to eat. However including dinner and the snack left tonight I have only consumed about 1,400 calories for today.
How do I eat all these calories? For breakfast, as I need to bring my cholesterol down, I consumed a bowl of Cheerios with skim milk and an apple. For a snack I had a handful of almonds and a nectarine. For lunch I had a grilled chicken salad. Mid-afternoon snack consisted of a cup of low fat vanilla yogurt and some sweet peppers (weird I know, but they are my replacement for potato chips.) For dinner I will be having baked Mahi Mahi, steamed broccoli and a salad. Snack later will be cottage cheese and an orange.
I had my afternoon snack around 2:30 and feel full as it is and at this point the thought of eating anymore seems like a daunting task. How can I fit in 2,700 calories without my stomach exploding?
Thank you and I apologize for this being long.
