“I have been eating your turkey chili for years and haven’t lost any weight.”
“I stopped eating bananas and my weight still goes up.”
…and this is why I don’t love sitting down and doing one nutrition session. People usually pick and chose advice and get frustrated with the results. Personally, I eat bananas and I don’t just eat turkey chili, but I am cautious with my sugar even from fruit and I enjoy my turkey chili. I create recipes by looking on the internet and modifying them to fit in my plan. Success is not about one recipe or one piece of advice. Success is all about habits and lifestyle.
So, I thought I would review a day of eating on the road when I don’t have time to cook and I am not super careful. Currently, I am intermitting fasting with means I only eat for 8 hours in the day.
The day starts with herbal tea and water because I gave up caffeine…. I am not sure if this is a keeper but I am trying life without caffeine for 28 days.
11:30 My husband bought me donuts because we happened to be in a town with a 5-star donut shop. I have a donut shop yelp rule because I really love donuts. I had one bite of chocolate donut and one bite of coconut donut and hid the rest in his car.
I drank 3 bottles of 16 oz of water
1:00 We stopped off at a new restaurant in an unfamiliar town. I ate steak tips with a side of steamed broccoli and a baked potato.
7:00 pm and I am home. I make my favorite breakfast while I eat a freshly picked apple. I cooked my sugar-free bacon in a cast iron skillet. I used the bacon grease to saute kale. I cooked two eggs in the kale and covered the eggs with 1/4 of an avocado.
I bought my daughter some wonton soup because she had a nasty cough. I ate her soup broth with all the greens.
I thought about waking up my husband and asking if he knew where the rest of the donuts were but I stopped myself.
I drank at least 3 more bottles of 16 oz of water.
