those pesky calories

Friday, September 02, 2016

I'm a calorie hoarder, trying to save up my calories for all the really tasty things that come at night.
Under Dr guidance, i'm trying to stick to 1400-1500 cals... which is about 200 higher than my previous aspiration.
SO do i add the 200 cals throughout breakfast and lunch? oh no, i'm hoarding them. which means my secret plan is to not admit that what i really want is dessert. 200 cals is a decent serving of ice cream.

nice try, self, you've been found out.

200 calories must be spent more wisely. on protein (yes, i KNOW ice cream has protein!!), on good healthy carbs (ditto)...

must pre-plan this eating thing before i sabotage myself for real.

    You'll figure it out!

    Eating more can be really hard, once you've become accustomed to calorie restriction. Have you considered adding more good fat, rather than focussing on protein and carbs? It would add the calories you need without making you feel overly full. One avocado would easily take care of those 200 calories easily!

    Here's a recipe that allows you to have your dessert, while adding a lot of great nutrition, too.
    (trust me... it's really, REALLY good)
