I often get asked “What do you eat?” So I thought, I’ll tell you. Now for starters, this is just one day’s worth of eating. I do not eat this same food EVERY day. But it will give you an idea of what I put into my body. I have found that if I eat chips and cookies and ice cream, I am almost immediately hungry again. But if I can go a few days without those items, then the “craving” goes away. (And I am not saying that those foods are “bad.” I do not believe in good and bad foods. But I do know what keeps me feeling my best AND what keeps inflammation away.)
So my biggest change has been to change my diet to nutrient dense food that fills me up. This sample is based on eating 7 times in one day. This sample is also a day that I am working out and usually a swim day. Swimming makes me hungry – plain and simple. You might say, of course it does. But I don’t often “feel” hunger. So I sometimes have to force myself to eat. But after swimming, I AM HUNGRY. So here goes.
So what do you think? When my trainer presented this to me (way back when), I thought it was a lot of food. But I feel great when I eat this way AND I don’t wake up hungry at night.
Feel free to comment below on what else you would like to see. I can do another day of eating because like I said, it’s not the same every day. And as always, thank you so much for following and supporting me in my lifelong journey of reclaiming my life!
