I have started being very precise with my nutrition tracking again. I was doing extremely well and was eating portion sizes and doing 'clean eating' while I was living on my own. Now I have three roommates who are in charge of groceries and that has gone by the wayside. I know it's just an excuse as I still make my own choices, but it needs to stop.
To help with this, I began tracking every bite again. I have found that I need to eat more fiber and keep my carbs to the lower-mid ranges that I need. I also need to stop eating so much sugar....oooooohhhh, my sweet tooth kicked in. I have determined that I am missing many fruits and veggies as those are so scarce around here that I am craving all the goodness from them. Since have a craving, I'm eating everything I can get my hands on and just am not satiated.
I need to add more fruits and veggies back into my diet again. I really do miss them, I've never realized how people can not have them in their house but my roommates do not buy them. I really was lucky growing up with fresh ones all the time that it's just natural for me to buy them. Lack on income is why I'm not buying them as I am dependent on the others to buy the food..
****Just an add on - one of my roommates is my boyfriend. He is transforming his diet slowly as well, it's still like veggies are the worst thing ever. He is okay with buying things for me as that is how it is going to be for a long time. :) We are talking about marriage, but nothing is set in stone yet. :) We have had several discussions and if they won't eat it, they won't buy it. It is tough but it's changing slowly.
