5/28/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 29. May 2013 09:13

If you follow my blog you can see that I weight all my meats and seafood and measure, or guestimate my vegetable intake.  This is a controversial practice.  It is hard for some people to be consistent with.  I make my lunch when I’m making my breakfast so it saves time for me.  When I cook my seafood I cook several portions, bag them when they cool, weigh them and mark them at that time.  This allows me to save money by not eating drive through and it helps me to control the calories of my day because I know exactly what’s in the food I eat and how it is prepared.

I also count my calories because when I first began blogging, I received feedback that my food diary needed to be very specific, so that if someone wanted to mirror what I eat, they could follow the eating practices more clearly.

Try to measure and count calories for at least one week to enlighten yourself on where you may be accumulating calories unknowingly (like latte’s, pop, candies, or food from your children’s plate). These hidden calories can add up to keep you from achieving the weight loss goals you would like.
