I haven't successfully tracked food since I joined SparkPeople...I have tried a few times but I never got past breakfast. I have just been watching my portions and drinking my water. The water I HAVE been tracking.
Since being diagnosed diabetic a couple days ago I have been tracking my food and watching those bad carbs. and I have to say... O...M...G! this is HARD!!! Especially since alot of the food I have been using to keep the fat and calories down (mainly the FiberOne bars (♥) Special K meal bars and Weight Watchers frozen entrees) are HIGH carb. I have been trying really hard to get in more fruits and veggies. But still not getting enough.
So here is where I am having a problem. This week the fitness tracker has been yelling at me that I'm not getting enough calories for what I'm burning. Then add to it that I'm now having to watch the carb number too. For a long time I have been trying eat "low fat" because of my cholesterol (thankfully those numbers are alot closer to where they should be). And like I said I have only tracked my food for 2 full days so far. But on both of those days I have struggled to eat even up to the low end of the range, ended up UNDER even tho I was so full I couldn't bear to eat another bite. I have input an average number of calories I burn and guess what!! It raised my calorie intake!! OMG! I'm already sooooo full at the end of the day and not even getting to the low end...how in the world am I going to eat MORE!?!?
Right now I am at a loss as to how to get all the calories I need and keep it lower fat and lower carb. Since apparently I'm not getting enough calories.
GAH! I'm so frustrated and I just wanna curl up and cry. I know that I can do this, but right now my confidence is waning.
