Today's Best of Sparkpeople addresses the diet mentality and its downfalls. I fall into most of the things the daily addressed. How do you not feel like you are on a diet when you can only eat 1000K a day?
In general, I eat 1300K a day at which I maintain my weight. To lose weight I have to stick to 1000K.
My typical menu is:
Breakfast - cereal w/ soy milk, oatmeal or, as a splurge, nutri-grain waffles.
Lunch - Yogurt & fruit, soup or Lean Cuisine
Dinner - Salad or any of the below
A miniature chocolate and a piece of fruit as snacks.
Sounds like quite a selection but it isn't when you live with it day in and day out. With each meal needing to be around 250K, things are greatly limited. Its not just a matter of portion control.
So, how do you not feel this is a diet? Its not a lifestyle change, not when adding one piece of fruit can blow it.
