Diet is a constant battle. I have now been off the diet officially now for longer than I have been on it this year. Tomorrow’s weigh in will be week 22 post diet – I was dieting for 20 weeks prior. There have been some major weight swings and I have to take care of what I’m actually eating. That said – I expected no less.
I’ve already mentioned the UK trip that pushed my weight back up by almost 5kg I was not too concerned about it. I had been doing home gym and exercising a little but that was then, and now the exercising has fallen by the wayside a bit.
However, I have been hitting the soup pretty hard again but that doesn’t mean that I’m not eating properly. I still drink water like a boss and I have many regular meals. But I am careful what these regular meals are.
My Typical Food Intake
- Breakfast – half a cup of granola with berries and yogurt
- Lunch – sandwich, wraps or salad
- Dinner – soup & crispbreads with cheeses or meats
- Snacks – fruit, seeds
Although this kind of menu occurs mostly daily, it doesn’t mean that I don’t have blow outs, or eat regular food too. When I do then the foodstuff that I eat are mainly things that I have decided that I can eat almost as much as I want – so there is no conscience when I do eat.
A Typical Blow Out Meal
- Oven baked salmon
- Roasted sweet potatoes
- Steamed carrots
By often completely omitting carbs I feel that I can eat until I am full with no guilt.
Diet Is A Constant Battle
So with the lack of exercise again, and the fact that I am still trying to get down to my target weight that I set last year (and it brings my BMI back to “normal”) , dieting or at least what I eat has become a constant battle.
It’s not that the food that I can or do eat is not tasty, or difficult to make – it’s just that there are some food stuffs that I cannot eat without ballooning – pasta is a good example.
That’s life though, I’ll survive. How about you?
Is there anything that you just cannot eat any more and crave for?
