New Blog, New Outlook on Eating

Monday, June 10, 2013

Recently I have not seen any weight change at all and realize that I need to do something about my eating. Over indulging may put me further away from my goal if I do not get it under control now. Muscle weighs more than fat and regardless of what the scale says, I want to burn fat. My regular McDonald's habit has to change and even though I work at a cookie factory, it doesn't mean I have to partake of the bounty.

My wife helped me log my food today and I was really surprised to see just how much I went over on my calories and not healthy ones either. I waited until the logging was over to mention the half dozen cookies I ate. I'm done with that and will practice moderation and control.

    When I started tracking I learned a lot! My favorite dishes when I ate out were not good choices and when I changed to healthier choices I found satisfaction and victory. emoticon emoticon

    Well done on facing it. I got a shock when I logged all my grazing. It certainly adds up!

    Tracking calories in and burned is the key to my Spark success so far. Eventually, it becomes a bit more intuitive. And you are correct. Moderation is the name of the game. Deprivation just makes you hungry and rebellious.

Congratulations on taking your game to the next level!

    emoticon Once you get a sense of those calories you can put together some breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas that will leave you satisfied. When I first started tracking I learned that I needed more protein. So even when I do not track, I am paying attention to the amount of protein I am getting so as to stay on track. Am ready to do the summer challenge with you! emoticon

  Yes, I was shocked how fast those "little" calories added up. Good luck with finding the right mix for you. emoticon

    It's amazing those first few weeks. You learn so much about how you eat. I have actually adopted a game. I try to see how much I can eat for as little calories.
