I want to improve my diet to lose weight and hopefully improve my overall health
Resources: Local grocery stores, CHWS nutritionist, Farmers markets, myself (will power)
Upon return from summer (I work at a residential summer camp where I don’t choose my diet much… I eat what the campers eat): Keep fresh produce and healthy snack options available, cook more for myself
Dependent upon results of my own efforts, Spring 2014: Talk to CHWS nutritionist and set up further efforts.
Throughout the process: Check in with myself RE: my weight and overall health/how I’m feeling. 1 week ago
It seems to be getting better but I don’t see much progress when it comes to my body. I eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies, definitely more than 5 portions a day. I cut down on sugar. No alcohol (but it’s not much of a challenge as I don’t really like it). I hope next week I’ll see some results on the scales… 4 weeks ago
Well I see myself getting somewhere, I added more protein (beans, lentils) and reduced sugar – I will only eat fruit (unlimited, for me it’s 3-5 per day), dark choc (max. 4 pieces per day) and honey.
I try to live my life the way I design and remove unnecessary or only decorative elements to create a coherent, logical whole. Same with food: chips, crisps, chocolate bars and soda give me nothing. Not even pleasure in the long run. Off you go. 4 weeks ago
I decided to upgrade the goal to a personal challenge so that I finally get going.
The challenge is:
- no soda
- no pizza
- no sweets (except for fruit, dark chocolate, honey etc.)
until the end of the month and possibly I’ll pick up the habit 1 month ago
I eat fruit and veggies all day long, as much as I want and I love them. But then, one moment of stress and I pour litres of coke or other liquid shit in myself. I realized that if I simply stop buying it, I’ll do with carrots.
Also, considering that I started to burn at least 500 kcal by running, I don’t have to cut down on chocolate, as long as it’s chocolate and not sugar-based something, like the damn cola. Gotta finish with that, I already feel my stomach hurts after it and for some reason I still tend to relieve the stress with it. 1 month ago
I’m becoming a lot more aware of fruit and veggies, which is good. However I’m struggling being at home at eating healthily as my parents like to buy and cook things which aren’t so good for you. I’ve been trying to make healthy choices but I think I will do much better when I’m back at university. 4 months ago
I think it is very important to think about what it is you are putting into your body and I really need to take a step back and think before I give in to eating food that, to my body, is technically useless and in some circumstances damaging. 12 months ago
I resisted the darn college canteen and chip shop and rewarded myself with looking in the pet shop at cute animals. :P 14 months ago
And part of this challenge is eating “clean.” I am encouraged that by the end of this challenge, I will be continuing on with some of the dietary changes I have made during the challenge.
The intent is that this will just be the beginning of what eventually becomes the norm. 15 months ago
I am going to try to incorporate at least 1 RAW meal/snack per week into my diet each week. 16 months ago
I eat such fucking crap. XD
Lets start with yesterday…
Oatsosimple porridge. (Now don’t look at me like that’s not bad at all…keep reading and you’ll see) with about four tea spoons of sugar.
Then my mother had to bloody go shopping and bought doughnuts so I had two of them.
I had an apple to make up for it but then…
...Then Nic picked me up to go to his….
It’s pretty downhill from here. XD
Spicy chilli tortilla chips, vegan oreos with Betty Crocker chocolate fudge icing (Nic’s creation=Bloody gorgeous!)
1/2 bag of salted popcorn
A Large portion of plain chow mein
XD I am sure there was more but yeah. XD
Today I have been kind of just as bad. XD
Nic made me toast with vitalite on it so healthyish and then I went home and had Jammy dodgers with that icing on. XD Had these gorgeous Gathia noodles. :P
Now I’m being cooked roast potatoes, vegan sausages and brussell sprouts. XD I know it’s kinda healthy but in the quantity I eat it’s really not. XD 18 months ago
Lately I have just not had a “desire” to eat. I find myself just snacking here/there, but rarely having nice, full, healthy meals.
I need to find some recipes that are quick but healthy. :) 18 months ago
I am just an awful vegetarian and by that I don’t mean that I eat a lot of meat, I don’t even eat marshmallows and anything that contains animal traces but I am very limited in what I do eat rather than expanding my diet I just circle around eating the same food. I am a huge fan of salt and butter and I know that I use way too much of this on most of my meals. So to begin my two weeks I am going to eat up the current things I have in order to start over. I don’t believe in wasting food so I will eat up what I have and then start fresh. I think I could feel so much better with a healthier diet and more exercise I just seem to have no energy anymore. 21 months ago
