Ditch The Diet for Healthy Habits

What I Eat In A Day Weekend Edition

~Ditch The Diet~

What I eat in a Day | loookingjoligood.blog

As you may remember, 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.  I also eat intuitively.  Meaning 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 are warm chocolate chip cookies in my house.

As you will see, I am a bit more strict with getting in all my veggies during the week, and not as much on the weekend.

I love Honey Nut Cheerios! Starting the day off with something sweet often helps me to stay on track for the rest of the day.

Can you eat pizza and lose weight? Yes you can!  You just have to be aware of the type of pizza that you are eating.  I made my pizza at home with a multigrain crust and reduced fat cheese and baked chicken.What I eat in a Day | loookingjoligood.blog

YES, that is a hamburger bun! Yup, a burger with a bun is not going to derail your diet! Just like eating pizza won’t kill you, you can enjoy a burger with a bun and still stay on track and lose weight too.

Here is a rough breakdown of my macros
1,605 calories
Protein 72g -288 cal from protein
Fat 74g -667 cal from fat
Carbs 158g-632 cal from carbs
Fiber 24 g
Water 90 fl oz
The biggest difference in my weekday and weekend eating habits can usually be seen in my macros.  I tend to let myself eat more fat and less fiber.
I hope these examples of what I eat in a day can help you to make some healthy choices!  I will post these “What I Eat In A Day” posts every once in a while.
