End of the day and 200 Calories to Minimum

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Don't you love the days when you come up short on the calorie count. Just had more veggies & nutritious stuff. 200 left maybe a skinny cow ice cream sandwich... emoticon

    My dietician has recommended between 1600-1800 calories for me a day, and I often struggle with getting all of my calories in. Especially now that I am eating much healthier food that is naturally lower in calories. I try to think about what it is that I haven't fit in during the day. Did I come up short on a serving of dairy, fruit, proteins, vegetables or whole grains? If I did, that's where I choose my snack from. If I didn't, then I allow myself to have a treat. Funny thing is that, now that I'm eating healthier, even my treats are healthier. I never thought that I'd ever think of another Greek yogurt or some air popped popcorn as a treat. But, who said a "treat" couldn't be healthy too?

    I occasionally have a 1100 calorie day. It's usually after I have a day when I ate a lot. It all seems to turn out okay. At the end of the week, I add up my totals and see what my average is.

    It's good not to be over the goal!

As long as being 200 cals below the standard minimum is not a regular thing, you are fine - I think it's good to keep the body guessing.
