What I eat

I didn't have much extra time yesterday to post this as I meant to.  Thank you Lap Band Gal for suggesting this.  It is so helpful for new ideas.

6:00 am Coffee with 1tbs 2% milk and splenda. (30 cal)

7:00am Protein shake (Pure Protein all naturals vanilla) mixed with hot coffee and a packet of splenda.  If you ever missed Cappuccino, you won't have to again!  (130 cal)

10:00am  Zone bar.  I prefer the Cinnamon Roll or  Kashi Roll peanut carmel (approx. 240 cal)

12:00pm  I am very lucky and live 1 mile from my office so I am able to come home at lunch and have time to cook something.  I usually have a cup of healthy choice soup.  (120)  or 8 cocktail shrimp with cocktail sauce (100), or a grilled chicken tender (70).

5:30 I usually eat whatever the family is having for dinner as I try to cook healthy for them.  Last night we had the thin (breakfast) cuts of pork chops approx 2 oz baked covered with carmelized onions. (approx  185 cal)  2 tbs of mashed potatoes (2 % milk, light butter) (65 cal), 1/2 cup broccoli (27).  My children love all foods so it is easy for us to eat well at home as they will eat anything!  I try to keep calories for dinner under 500 for a normal portion for the family so mine is going to be less than that.

So I end up usually about 800 calories.  That is what I try to keep it at.  I hope this helps!

Thanks Heather! 800 calories. I am eating almost twice as much, no wonder I am stalled! This is really helpful.

Wow! 800 calories! I usually have that by the afternoon. If I eat under 1200, everything stops for me. :(

Wow, I never thought of adding my protein to my coffee! And I add it to a lot of things! This is such a good idea, thanks!

Wow 800 calories! I usually eat about 1,200 a day.

Your meals sound so similar to mine! I'm up around 1100 calories on my workout days, though, and around 900-1000 on other days. :)

I have non-picky kiddos too -- makes things WORLDS easier than if I had to plan around them. yay!

Looks like your emphasis is on protein? Do you count grams? I always have to remind myself "protein first"- it helps so much.
