Net calories – 790
I decided (during the day, not after eating a bunch) to skip recording on Saturday because this whole thing was making me a tad too obsessive. So I tried not to count calories, and instead added them up at the end of the day: around 1300 net after all was said and done, with a brownie binge at the end of the day that was a real kick in the butt. I had to throw the rest of the batch away 😦
Today went much better. I think I’m finally starting to kick the cravings! Although, I did kinda overdose on fiber gummies on accident (had 6 when the bottle said 4 max)… it was my first time trying them and they were so delicious! I am now unbelievably bloated and laughing at myself.
But they are definitely a potentially useful appetite suppressant if not taken en masse next time.
I also made some delicious ramen that is approximately 100x healthier than the stuff all my fellow college students are eating. Who needs 500 calorie deep-fried-then-dried noodles covered in MSG, when you could have 85 wholesome calories of shirataki and veggies in homemade broth instead? (It’s amazing that I get so many more nutrients from 85 cals than they do from 500)
