so I’ve been eating less than usual mostly by cutting out snacks, processed crap and lowering carbs.
My other trick is MINDFUL EATING 🍽
Before putting anything in my mouth 👄 I ask myself – WHY?
Am I hungry? Stressed? Emotional? Bored?
So I only eat when I’m hungry, which naturally eliminates snacking. If I’m hungry between meals, that could mean one or more of the following 3️⃣ reasons:
♦️ I did not eat enough/balanced at previous meal (this often happens with breakfast)
♦️ I’ve been working out more/expending more energy in other ways (running around like a crazy chicken 🐓)
♦️ I’m PMSing, and my fellow ladies would know how that goes. Our metabolism actually does speed up in the 2nd phase of the cycle, by 100-300 cals, its individual (not by 1000 cal – so your 2 slices of cake and a serving of chicken wings are not justified 😜)
🍒 Breakfast: pancakes and coffee (o later figured that wasn’t enough, eggs and spinach with lo told do it better for me)
🍒 Lunch: roasted chicken breast, white beans, spinach and green beans topped with olive oil, truffle salt and Dijon mustard (I’m addicted to Dijon 😱)
🍒 Dinner: seared salmon, baked sweet potato fries, arugula salad with cherry tomatoes, lemon juice and olive oil. I might’ve come back for more fries… and salad… 🥗 😉
With food I need variety, can’t eat the same every day. I also listen to my body and don’t deny it food. I learn from my experiences and correct mistakes as I go (like my breakfast – tomorrow eggs for sure 😅)
