Well, it’s been two month since my life changing surgery and my life has really changed.
One of the things that is difficult to manage when you have surgery is how little food the body needs to function. Before I was absolutely obsessed with food…like I couldn’t get enough at any given time. Now food takes the back-burner to a lot of things. It’s weird.
So I decided to document what I eat in case anyone was interested.
Breakfast: Premier Protein shake with a tablespoon of peanut butter and ice blended. (250 calories)
Morning Snack: Sargento Balanced Breaks. Love them, all of them. (180 calories)
Afternoon snack: String cheese and an apple (180 calories)
Dinner: Flat-out BBQ chicken pizza (225 calories)
So that is approximately 1,000 calories. My goal is 900 with 60 grams of protein. Some days I am more hungry than others. Some days I crave something sweet and indulge. But most days I am right around this number. I feel pretty good about it. I don’t feel deprived and I am losing consistently. I am sure I will change things up as I get further out. I should probably eat more veggies, but sometimes my stomach can’t handle them and I don’t want to be in public (teaching) if my stomach doesn’t cooperate (if you know what I mean!).
I must also say that I am burning between 500-600 calories a day exercising. So there’s that.
What are you eating? What’s your favorite go-to meal?
