Paleo(ish) food journal - always seeking advice :)
I've seen other members keeping a journal of their food intake and experiences etc...it's a pretty good idea. Especially for a clueless fifteen-year-old girl (5'4", exact weight unknown - maybe 12-13 stone? Quite muscular, though.) looking to lose fat.
Please feel free to give me recipes, steer me in the right direction, (or tell me to up/cut back food intake)
Breakfast (7:30 am) 2 eggs scrambled in 17g of butter + 2 slices of back bacon.
Lunch: (12:40 am) Beef and half-an-avocado salad. I can't be sure of how much beef, as my mum makes it, but I think it was OK.
Dinner: (5:30 pm) Chicken (breast) curry with cauliflower rice. Again, not so sure of the amounts. Followed by berries + a nectarine in 3 teaspoons of Greek yoghurt.
Activity: None. Apart from 40 minutes of walking. Gym tomorrow.
At around 7:30, I started to feel irritable and light-headed, so I had 6 squares of Green and Black's 85% and a cup of coffee with a bit of semi-skimmed milk. (I know, but I'm only allowed cream once or twice per week.) I immediately felt better after that. Not sure if I was in need of the caffeine, or the calories. (also, it killed my sugar craving. Bloody advertisements are evil.)
I don't really vary my meals much. I always have the same breakfast (sometimes, I'm a little more adventurous with eggs) and lunch is always a bit of protein + lettuce + avocado. I need some ideas...
I heard that for good, sustainable weight-loss, a pound of meat per day + 2-4 eggs and plenty of veg is ideal. (optional: berries) hopefully that's the case, as I feel like I'm eating less than that?
I hope I'm not one of those women who have to cut carbs AND fat, and eat like 900 calories per day. I'm fifteen, so that shouldn't be the case. I hope my body'll be on my side for once.
