Learned all Steak is Not the Same!
Saturday, September 15, 2012
I am in shock right now! I weighted out my York Strip steak (grilled) and when I put 4oz. on the scales it was so small.So, I went for 8oz. but it in my plate and it still looked small but enough to fill me up. I had a small baked potato and 2 tbb. spoons of sour cream. It looked like a diet meal to me. When I put it into the food tracker I just about fell over. The meat calories was what I had been eating for a nice plate of food and would be full and happy on my reg. days of eating. I always had some kind of meat but didn't go over 4oz. and a big serving of veggies, it would average about 300 to 350 at most for calories. I even ate roast beef , at the most 4 oz. Well, I don't think that the Steak was worth the calories. I got lazy thought that the baked potato in the microwave would be easier. I was cooking for my husband and he has always wanted baked potato with his steak. OK, He can have his baked potato, but I will stick with the veggies. and 3oz. of steak. Also I had put my food in the tracker after I had eaten it because I thought that i had it hands down on how much and what kinds of foods that was healthy to eat. Wow! I got a surprise. I see that I better start checking the foods out when I have not tracked their calories before I but them in my plate and eat them. Learned a lesson tonight.
