Kitt's thoughts and actions

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I have been trying really hard to track all the food I eat, I have made a huge effort to be mindful while preparing meals to not poke a few bites in my mouth or taste and re taste what I am cooking.....I have weighted my food when ever possible....measuring is good but weighing is better....

point at hand...I measure a tablespoon of fresh ground peanut butter for my snack....calories 85....but on my new plan I decided to weigh that tablespoon....21 grams.....ohhhhhhhhhhh...21 grams of peanut butter is 97 calories.....it might not seem like the end of the world but then I got to wondering about other things I measure and I was very surprised....most everything I measured was heavier than what the label gram weight was....

emoticon ....I thought I was counting every calorie....I don't want to bore you with each thing I weighted but turns out I was getting between 150 and 300 more calories than I tracked, then given the extra nibbles and taste while preparing meals....I could have eaten an extra 500 calories a day...
that can add up those pounds in a hurry and given the fact I am not working right now, so less calories burned....

WELL YOU GET THE PICTURE..... emoticon , so for 3 day I have weighted most everything I have eaten...I have seen the scale going down already.....

So for me it's now going to be to weigh my food, not measure.....

Have a healthy day, find what works for you...and emoticon
