I started my new eating habits of having a protein, fat, fiber and greens every meal 'diet' on Friday, the 15th of November. I actually began it with dinner that day.
It has only been 5 days but I can say that I have already lost 4 pounds and I have not been hungry between meals at all. There have been no cravings or snacking of any kind.
Except for the 1st day and the above is what I craved. Not too bad for a snack!
I can actually say that I do not feel like I am suffering with this new way of eating at all.
I'll start with the things I drink. Even though my breakfast smoothie is breakfast, I still drink it. The Smoothies are the top 3 in the photo above. The one with the blue Owl cup is what I usually have. I did add raspberries to it one morning and that wasn't too bad either.
Besides the protein powder, almond milk, almond butter and spinach, I also add ice and blend it all together in the blender. I love the taste and it holds me over until lunch, even on my work days.
The 3 photos in the bottom row are what I use if I need greens added to my meal. It also has caffeine. It is actually quite tasty and I like having it as an extra option for a drink.
On days when I don't need the drinkable greens, I still make my green tea with honey. It's been a personal favorite for awhile now.
Even though I don't mind a chicken salad most days, I have been playing around with different stuff I can have at lunch.
I've folded my left overs from dinner the night before into my lunch, I've tried new things like avacatoes with an egg in them, and my egg sandwich that you can see in the bottom 3 photo's above. I managed to fit all 4 things into that one!
And the above is the bread I use for fiber when I need it. Shockingly to myself, its has a really good taste to it.
I have forgotten to take many photographs of my dinners but I did get this one. I realized after that I could have gone without the bread since I had salad. I'm learning though.
I even played around with different ways to make greens. The above is spinach & garlic cooked in just a tad of olive oil. I sprinkled sunflower seeds and cheese on it after it cooked down.
I am every enthusiastic about my 1st week of this new way of eating. My biggest and only concern is if I am getting too many vitamins now. I need to sit down and figure out if I need to be taking my daily woman's vitamin anymore.
So far so good! :)
