Hi everyone! I'm 15 years old, >5'4" and weigh 115-118 lbs. I was wondering if my maintenance plan sounded healthy:
Breakfast: 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt, 1.5 cup Puffins (cereal), large banana
Snack: 1 oz raw almonds
Lunch: 2 slices sunflower seed bread, 1/4 cup hummus, tomato slices and lettuce, gala apple
Snack: large gala apple with 1 tbsp natural peanut butter, Luna/Larabar
Dinner: lots of sauteed broccoli, Swiss chard, 1/2 sweet potato, black eyed peas
Snack: Deep Chocolate Vitatop with 1 tbsp natural peanut butter, ~cup skim plus milk
Total: 2300-2400 calories
I don't eat this everyday exactly, but most days are similar. Is there too much sugar or carbs in this diet? I have been maintaining my weight range on this amount for a couple of weeks. My weight is not that high though so if I gain a few pounds that's okay. Thanks!
That looks to be more like 2100 to me, although you could afford to have as much as 2500 I'd bet. =) I have 2000-2500 to maintain my weight, and I'm lightly to moderately active(I walk for 30-60 minutes or workout). It looks very healthy and balanced to me, and very similarly structured to my diet actually! =P 3 meals and 3 snacks is the best way to go.
