Hi! I need some help!
A month ago I experienced a sudden raise in my appetite and had some trouble adjusting to it, but now I'm fine. I always eat until I'm not hungry anymore, but no more than that, so I guess that's okay.
I never tracked my calories because generally I eat pretty well, barely no desserts, etc. and when I started tracking them I became obsessed and stopped eating when I reached my "top" for the day... oops!
But now I've hit a plateau and I haven't lost weight for 2 weeks and I'm kinda concerned. I know it's not an exercising problem since I exercise even more and better, so I know it's because of what I eat. I'm guessing I eat too much calorie - since you gotta have a deficit of 200 calories everyday (between what you burn and what you eat) in order to lose one pound a week.
So I was wondering if you guys had any ideas of low-cal foods I could eat to full me up. Just to get an idea here's what I ate yesterday:
1 cup of Life cereals
1 cup of Silk soy milk
2 whole grain toasts, one with 1 tbsp of chocolate almond butter, one with 1 tbsp of peanut butter
1 cup of green tea
One piece of dark chocolate I just purchased at the gym! (about 1 tbsp)
4 cups of broccoli and celery dipped in 1/3 cup roasted pine nut hummus
A piece of bread
1 cup of red grapes
Nature Valley almond granola bar
1,5 cup fine couscous
1 cup mixed vegetables with tofu (broccoli, green onion, mushrooms, carrots)
1/3 cup salted peanuts
1 pack of Praeventia cookies (120 calories per pack) ginger flavored
A little bowl (maybe a cup or a little less) of Triscuits
A cup of herbal tea
I drank 10 glasses of water throughout the day.
