Miss Mimi - CC the veggie way
I started calorie counting a week ago but have only just bought some reliable scales on which to weigh myself so WI starts today...2 stone to lose.
I have made a list of all the meals I can make from the shopping I have done and worked out how many calories per meal, so I can plan my days food or if I go out I can look at the list for some low calorie meals to make up for the calorie-laden meal out!
1 slice of toast with a poached egg and 6g butter - 190 calories max
I was at uni and could not make it home as planned so I picked up an egg mayo sandwich - the maximum calories I found online for this was 420
Quorn 'steak' strips (75g) peas & brocolli (60g each) stir fry sauce (100g) - 290 calories
50g cottage cheese with pineapple - 50 calories
1 slice toast with 1tbsp blueberry jam - 200 calories max
Coffee with skimmed milk and 1 sweetner, robinsons squash, water - 90 calories
Today = 1240 calories
I am aiming for 1200 calories a day but I find I am constantly thinking of food, my next meal and I go to bed so hungry - any advice?
I used myfitnesspal to work out how many calories to have per day and 1200 was recommended however looking at the calculation provided on a thread on here I should be eating 1430...how much difference will 200 calories make if I do/don't eat them? Is there a risk of my body going in to starvation mode?
