So I'm not overweight. I'm quite healthy and want to lose about ten pounds for vanity purposes only, which would put me on the light side of a healthy weight. I do have a very active full time job - I'm a food service worker at a hospital and am on my feet for 8ish hours a day, and then work out 3-5 times a week (half hour treadmill, twenty or so minutes of weight training.) I eat both breakfast and lunch at work. Here is what I have:
B- Greek yogurt and a piece of fruit
L- Pb sandwhich on wheat bread and a light yogurt
S- Either fruit, some cool whip (if I have a sweet tooth), or carrots
D- Either a turkey sandwich on wheat with a slice of cheese, pickles, and light miracle whip with carrots OR 1 cup of oatmeal with 1/4 sugar free maple syrup, 1 tbsp light marg., and half a tbsp pb.
How does this sound as far as being nutritionally balanced? I vary the amount of the things I eat at dinner and snack based on my activity level for the day. I'm more worried about getting a balanced diet. (I'm 19, if that counts).
Does this sound okay? I've been considering taking a One-a-day Woman's but I hear you pee out most of those pills anyway.
how many calories does this add up to? it looks low to me.
between 1200-1600, depending on the day and the activity level. I tend to estimate calories, rather than count them strictly. I do measure out what I eat however.
