analyzing nutrition information - and hunger pangs

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I did pretty well today overall, and after looking at my nutrition information, I see where my problems are in getting my carbs, fats, and protein in the proper balance. That seems like it should just fall into place, but it hasn't yet.

I looked at my high carbohydrate items, and they were fruit, fruit juice, and bread and potatoes. So, I think I will work on reducing the potatoes in favor of more vegetables; and as for the fruit, cutting the amount down by a quarter will be enough. The juice is okay too, as it is a half cup of pure apple cider.

That's what I am going to try for now.

There is one interesting thing that happened to me on the way home from work today: my stomach growled from hunger! In one way it was uncomfortable, in another way it felt good, as the way I had been eating I didn't feel that physical signal at all often. When I got home I had a big glass of water before getting to work on dinner, and had some home made dill pickles while preparing the meal.

    Sounds like you are doing wonderful! Maybe instead of cutting out the actual fruit, just cut out the juice. The actual fruit will have way more fiber and fill you up! Unlike the juice that is just liquid calories :) emoticon
