I am going to make a concerted effort to get in all of the WW guidelines before any snacking on non-guideline foods. Aside from wanting to lose 25 pounds, I also really want to eat healthy for my body...the older I get the more it is about health and less about vanity (but not completely not about vanity ;) Nevermind that if I fill up on guideline food I will have a lot less room for the empty stuff.
For breakfast I wanted to have a grilled cheese. Instead I had an egg cooked in 1 tsp olive oil and a glass of milk. I brought carrots, an apple, and spinach salad w/ 1 pt. asian dressing as snacks. I have a sandwich (4 pts) on double fiber bread as well for "lunch" though I may just be having mini-meals all day.
Here is my guideline counter, I will update it as the day goes on (lucky for me I work at a desk):
Guideline: Eat at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruits each day.
Guideline: Include 2 servings of milk products – low fat (1%) or fat-free – each day.
Guideline: 2 servings of healthy oil (olive oil, canola, sunflower, safflower or flaxseed)
Guideline: 1-2 servings of meat, poultry, fish, eggs, or dried beans each day. (Many dairy products are also good sources of protein).
Guideline: At least 6 8-ounce glasses of water a day.
Guideline: Take a multiple vitamin-mineral supplement each day.
Guideline: Choose whole-grain foods, such as brown rice and oats, whenever possible.
Progress: I do this 95% of the time already.
Limit added sugar and alcohol.
Progress: Working on this.
Have a great OP day!
