660 cals by 2:30 PM??????

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

I forgot to put water to boil for my tea before showering - and there isn't enough time after my shower for the water to boil and make strong tea - so I went to the coffee cart again this morning. Breakfast was tea au lait (nonfat) with sugar-free vanilla - this is my "regular" and I get a cup and a thermos, so the total is about 8 oz skim milk, tea (negligible cals), and zero cals from the vanilla. Had a slice of banana bread - about 195 cals (according to SP). Total - about 290 cals.

Lunch: oat pita, 5 slices of Healthy Ones chicken, bunch of baby carrots - total about 280 cals. Plus I'll finish the tea left in the thermos.

Snack will be a small apple (5 to a lb), and 2 wedges of low-fat Laughing Cow cheese - all of 120 calories.

So by the end of the workday, I'll have consumed under 700 calories.

Now if I can just have a granola bar later on, and maybe a 400-500 calorie dinner, I should be fine. And if I could do this every day, I'd get off this plateau and lose some more for a while.

    I'm usually near 1000 after lunch. I'd probably be knawing my arm off if I only had 650 by 2pm :)

    I usually aim for about 800-900 cals by dinner time - then dinner is about 500 cals, which puts me right at range. When I eat about 1200-1300 cals, I lose for a day or two and then stop - seems to be too low for me. Really, 1400-1450 is optimal.

    I usually need 800 - 1000 cals before dinner especially if I've worked out.

    Under 700 just sounds kind of low - I lose best at 1400 or so cals, so half the cals left for after work just sounded low.

    That sounds about right to me! What's wrong??

    I really hope this works for you. It will be brilliant if it does.
