So I normally have a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast, in the car on the way to work. But I'm finding that with adding a sandwich for lunch also I'm running out of calories toward the end of the day. Last night I had a bowl of veges and brown rice in a not-too-calorific stirfry sauce and went over my calorie range for the day. I was well within all the individual carb, protein, fat ranges though. I'm loathe to cut back on my vege intake because I figure I need the vitamins and fibre, so unsure what else I can do.
The issue for me is that I'm needing to take a voltaren for back pain twice a day, so need to have something reasonably substantial or I have stomach problems. Hence having the sandwich rather than my previously usual protein shake for breakfast. I eat whole grain soya and linseed bread so even that is healthy.
Is it more important to be within your ranges than actually be eating healthily? I can't decide.
