Protein Bars

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

A few weeks ago I weighed myself and was too close to 300. Scared I decided to do something drastic and bought a whole bunch of protein bars with the plan of replacing my breakfast and lunch with them and stopping once September rolled around. Well its September 1st and I have one bar left.

What I liked about the protein bars is the easy convience, meal on the go they offer. I've always have found it hard to eat breakfast and lunch and with the protein bars i actually made sure I was eating those meals, and they also got me to eat snacks inbetween meals as well.

I'm going to try to eat less at meals, instead of eating until I'm beyond full, and really make an effort to eat more fruits and veggies. I have already made meat a side dish and veggies the main dish at dinner, hoping I can stick with this change, now that I just bought a food scale hoping I can maintain and continue my weight loss.

    Not that I'm a healthcare/nutrition professional, but at first glance this does not sound like a healthy thing to do. I think it's great in that you wanted to train yourself to eat smaller portions though, and hopefully that habit will stick. If you don't mind my asking, did you check with your doctor or anyone before you did this? Also, I think it's great that you're eating more fruits/veggies and less meat. Good luck!
