Trying Something New this Month

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

I'm going to try eating differently for one month. I want to increase my monthly weight loss by 50%. This is very do-able, as I've only been losing one pound a week. During the month of August, I'm going to eat five 250 calorie meals a day for a total of 1250 calories. This planned calorie count is not much different from what it has been; my range has been 1200 -1475. I have been eating a reasonable percentage of this at each meal and snack to stay within my range, but if I'm not careful enough this can leave me with a deficit by the end of the day and sending me to bed hungry where I toss and turn until, eventually, I get up and get something to eat so I can go to sleep.
This month I'm going to adjust portion size each time before I eat to make sure there are 250 calories in the meal. Doing this five times a day will allow for three meals, a snack and a bedtime reserve, and, for one month, I will be eating 1250 calories daily instead of somewhere between 1200 and 1475 or more.

I'm hoping this will shake things up sufficiently to lose six pounds this month and move on to a two pound per week loss afterward. Wish me luck.

    That sounds like a well thought out plan! What I've been doing tends to lead to controlled binging. Then again moderation has always been my week point.
Wish You Luck!

    Good luck!! I know what you mean about going to bed being hungry; I end up grabbing a bag of popcorn or something worse and barely remember it the next day. Spacing the calories throughout your day should keep up your blood sugar and energy. Let us know how it goes!
