Day 2 Food Diary (6/10)

Day 2 was a down day, so I was aiming for 400 net. Of course, this is a ridiculously low number of calories compared to the 1100 I’m used to, so I had trouble keeping my snacking under control! The thing was, I never felt hungry–I just felt like putting food in my mouth. It’s quite sad how, 99% of the time, that’s my sole reason for eating. I’m hoping this low calorie experiment will help teach me more mindful eating: I should only be eating when I’m actually hungry. Not out of boredom!

Sadly I didn’t reach my goal thanks largely to some french fries that were brought home just for me: if someone brings me food, I always have to eat it. It’s a curse; people bringing food for me is one of my biggest downfalls. The other day, my boyfriend brought me half a loaf of banana bread, and I ATE THE WHOLE THING IN ONE DAY. Yes, I have a problem.

Anyways, to make up for the 150 cals over my day 2 goal, I’m going to try to eat 800 on day 3 instead of 1000 (I’m alternating between 1000 and 400 in an up-day-down-day pattern to average to 700 daily).

My friend is still missing, and it’s starting to look really bad. 😦

Breakfast:

  • Strawberries: 23
  • Avocado berry protein smoothie: 275

Lunch:

  • Coffee with coconut oil and soymilk: 55
  • Rice cakes with cashew cheese and tofurkey: 145
  • Berries: 24

Dinner:

  • Homemade ramen with kale and mushrooms: 90

Snacks:

  • French fries: 105  (bad!!)
  • Homemade Mocha: 20

Total: 735    –    Burned 185

Net: 550

  • Protein: 40g
  • Carbs: 60g
  • Water: 3.5L
My favorite smoothie of all time that I have most mornings! Avocado, berries, spinach, protein powder, flax seed, chia, and occasionally a banana as sweetener

      • I tried doing a bread mono ytd cos I thought hey, maybe it’d be okay if I was “allowed” to eat. Omg, never again. I was inhaling loaves. Purged it cos I was so scared. Lol.

      • Oh man, that really sucks! I’ve only tried dark chocolate and almond monos because I felt they were healthy enough but… a bread mono sounds like heaven if it weren’t so scary 😛

        Did everything turn out okay this morning?

      • Ooh fat-based/low-carb monos are the best! They kick you right into ketosis 🙂 I’ve always been curious about the egg mono since everyone swears by it, but sadly I just can’t do it… the thought of eating even one egg makes me feel sick.

        Let me know how they go!
