~Dith The Diet~
I follow a model of eating called 80/20 which means 80% of what I eat is clean/healthy foods and 20% is “splurge” foods. We can get more into the details of 80/20 in a future post.
I also follow intuitive eating. This basically means if I am hungry I eat until I am satisfied and if I am not hungry, I don’t eat. Sounds simple right? Some days are easier than others especially if there’s leftover Easter candy laying around…
Here is what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast 375 cal
Chobani Strawberry Greek Yogurt -120 cal (serving size one container 120 cal)
1/4 cup Trader Joes Pecan Praline Granola 105 cal (serving size 1/2 cup 210 cal)
1/2 Banana 45 cal (serving size 1/2 large banana 45 cal)
3 large strawberries- 45 cal (serving size one cup 55 cal)
1 Tbs Super Seed Ancient Grain Blend 60 cal ( serving size 2 Tbs 120 cal)
Usually, around mid-morning, I would also have a post-workout snack that consists of about 250 or so calories. I didn’t workout yesterday, so I wasn’t hungry and didn’t need the mid-morning snack.
If I were to have a snack it would most likely be either a medium sized apple and 1.5 Tbs of peanut butter or two pieces of low-fat mozzarella string cheese.
Lunch 400 cal
Solid White Tuna 2 oz 60 cal (serving size 2 oz 60 cal)
Old Fashion Hearth Whole Wheat English Muffin 130 cal ( serving size one muffin 130 cal)
