Since January Fourth was my official Day One (I accidentally ate something that wasn’t a part of the ingredient list on the third) I wanted to make sure I was satiated throughout the day. I tend to eat a lot when I’m on a diet at first to offset the very fact that I am on a diet. It’s definitely not a good practice to follow. But! Here’s what I ate:
Breakfast– Two eggs with an onion, bacon, and jalapeno slaw, a banana, and two cups of coffee.
Snack– A Banana (I’m still working on getting rid of snacks).
Lunch– Homemade “sloppy joes:” Ground beef, crushed tomatoes, minced onion, crushed red pepper flakes, and hot sauce. Sides of goji berries, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, and a glass of 100% cranberry juice. (#MotD)
While Driving for Lyft– Raw carrots and yellow bell pepper sticks.
Dinner– Fried egg, a tomato, a baked sweet potato with yellow mustard, some dried blueberries, and a cup of 100% cranberry juice.
So yeah, this is without meal planning. I will plan for the next week, however. Also note, you’re going to see a LOT of repetitive things because I truly don’t have an issue with eating or drinking the same things when under any sort of crunch.
Also, and this is VERY important for those of you curious about trying the Whole30 Program: Don’t weigh yourself. I did on Day Zero and then I read the book. If you weigh yourself every day, you may get discouraged about not losing weight at the desired rate. By focusing on your eating, it will come naturally.
See you tomorrow!
Jamie writes about himself a lot. Yeah, he knows that can be irritating, but he hopes that people can learn from his mistakes, like when he had cancer and waited too long to chase his dream. Learn more about his battle with Leukemia (AML) in his on-going first draft of his book here.
