How did I do on the first day of my new diet?
For the past few years, I’ve been eating pretty healthy with only a few minor lapses for a week or 2. As a recent college graduate, I was used to having more opportunities to be active without even thinking about it but I recently took a desk job that has left me quite sedentary and lazy about my nutrition. I’m a 6ft tall 23 year old female weighing in at 165–170lbs. My pelvis is wide but so I wear about a 10–12 in pants. :/
Mostly due to some stomach issues and a skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris, (often caused by a gluten sensitivity) I’ve decided to cut wheat from my diet for two weeks and see if it helps me at all. If it helps me lose 10lbs that would be great too! My goal weight is 155. Hopefully cutting some of the starch and crap that bloats me combined with increased activity, will help bring my weight down a little bit…
Here’s what I ate today. How do you think I did?
Vanilla yogurt and a banana (About ⅓–½ a coffee mug full of yogurt)
Avocado with sea salt and chili powder
½ Kale and apple salad with vinegar ½ eggplant caponata salad from Smile to Go
(Kind of hungry, maybe bored?)
Water from fresh young coconut (wasn’t mature enough to have any meat yet. Booo:()
Kale chips (140 cal serving with vegan, gluten free “cheese”)
to-go sashimi from Dean and DeLuca
approx 50 oz filtered water
3 big cups of black coffee with maybe a touch too much honey
1 big cup green tea
Water from fresh young coconut
