food journal analysis
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
After spending some serious time looking at my food journal, I've realized 3 things:
1. I am consistently not getting enough proteins
2. I am consistently not getting enough fiber
3. I am way over doing the carbs
When I went back and looked at my journals from the last time I was at this weight and I plateaued, guess what!?!?!?! You guessed it! Not enough protein and fiber coupled with too many carbs.
SOOOOOOOO, tomorrow I will spend the morning re-doing my meal plans for the week paying close attention to protein, cholesterol, fiber and carb content. Thinking at this point my planning error was that I was meal planning on an empty stomach/low blood sugar time. Which I know full well makes me start craving carbs. Now that I've figured that out and committed to getting more strength training in along with a change up in my cardio, in hoping I can power through this plateau and keep heading in the right direction weight wise. I'm none too concerned about it at this point as I'm seeing body composition shifts.
Thanks for stopping by...
