Weight notes

leave a comment »

My weight is up 5 lbs, but it’s heading back down. I started eating whole servings of starch (1/2 c uncooked rice in the one-pot meal—two servings because two meals—instead of the 1/3 c I had been using: it’s just that the rice tastes so good that I started using full portions, a mistake), I got some feta to use here and there, and I was so hungry at night I started doing protein snacking (a boiled egg here, a string cheese there).

But now I don’t panic. I’ve been here before and I know what to do. The first thing to do is cut out the feta and the protein snacks. My one-pot meals are back to using 1/3 c in place of 1/2 c in the starch area, and I also and quitting the sardines/mackerel GOPMs. They taste great, but those are oil-rich fish (and thus their great nutritional value and omega-3 content). I picked up some Dover sole and some boneless, skinless chicken breast.

These slight adjustments, coupled with on-going exercise and eliminating all non-meal eating save for the two pieces of fruit (one for mid-morning snack, one for mid-afternoon snack), will quickly get me back on track.

The idea is not to panic, but simply return to good practice and keep the timely record.

UPDATE: FWIW, the Spanish mackerel is excellent. It doesn’t have a strong taste, but it is definitely rich.
