Not much to say this week, other than I have been very diligent on my calorie intake. Just as some suggested, I have found foods that I like (and that fit into my schedule) that are low-calorie. In the first week, I stayed pretty close to the range of 1,700 to 1,900 calories, but at times used some "bad foods" (w/no nutritional content) to get there.
Over the past week (wk 3-4), I have been actually trying to think what food type would be best for me (proteins, fruits, veggies, etc.). I am also bringing my daily average down to around 1,600 calories per day. I am likely missing out on some fats and grains, and need more veggies. But I am experimenting right now and am interested in a healthy, but aggressive loss. I have not felt a loss in energy due to the lower calorie intake...likely because I used to eat unhealthy foods in high calories...so many of those cals weren't really helping me either.
My question to you out there: how will I know if I am eating TOO FEW calories? I'd rather not find out on Monday (weekly weigh-in day). What do you think?
Finally, just for fun, I am attaching the newest Geico commercial because it basically makes our entire family laugh everytime we see it. Hope you enjoy it as well.
