Day 2, feeling good!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Today was my second day tracking calories and being productive! It was nice eating well and feeling proud of myself! Although, I have to say, yesterday I went to bed much fuller than I'm going tonight. Today I tracked my calories and ate amazingly, so I had like 700-900 for dinner. Then I wasted them on one burrito and a cup of beans at taco bell. If I planned a little better, I could have gotten something more filling, and left room for a snack before bed.
My husband and I are definitely late eaters, and all day snackers. We have to find that happy medium in our dieting/healthy living. And I'm wondering if my overeating problem has made it impossible for me to feel full!
Because I'm all about snacking, I am enjoying some crushed iced. Not because I am trying to starve myself, but because I am obsessed with munching and I need to keep my mouth busy. I wonder if there is a SP group for people who eat mindlessly. I should look into that!

When you choose wisely and focus on healthy fats and fiber you'll feel fuller for longer. Part of your journey will be learning how to eat foods that are good for you and aren't overly-flavored. Much of the American diet consists of high fat, high sugar, and high sodium foods that overload our tastebuds. Thus, when we eat 'normal' food we don't get the same feeling of satiety because the taste and smell isn't overpowering us. Over a few months of eating healthier you'll learn the subtle differences in tastes instead of the overpowering flavors, and eventually many people say that they can no longer eat the same foods because they can't handle the taste. But, one big challenge is not eating it and reminding your tongue how much it wants it.

    i love Taco Bell - Doritos Taco supreme is 200 calories and pretty filling. I like to have texture in my meals so when you talk about munching on ice, I know that feeling of just wanting something to crunch! So cool that you did so well today. emoticon
