I can't get enough "fat". Crazy problem.
Tuesday, February 16, 2010
It's odd that it takes a day of "blowing it" to get enough fat in my diet. I ate much healthier today, but I didn't eat enough fat. I'm wondering if other people have the same problem. I add olive oil and Smart Balance a lot of days and I still come up short on my fat. The oil supplements I take don't even count, and that makes no sense to me.
I read an article the other day on SP that addressed this very issue. It talked about the danger of eating too many "fat-free" and "low-fat" foods. This is exactly my problem.
I really am struggling with finding a balance in this. Do I start frying? Do I eat more bread and "butter" (Smart Balance) Then I'd have to cut calories elsewhere due to the bread calories.
Help...I really don't know what to do. I'm on a pendulum. I add fat to my veggies, but I guess I don't eat enough of those either. I even struggle to get enough carbs on some days, so it's not that. How do I get the nutrients I need and stay near my goal of 1200 calories? I can't afford to follow the SP diet...help?
