...so long as I track the calories I'm eating?
I don't mean that I wanna consume 1500 calories a day worth of takeaway and junk food. But I'm not a fruit or veg fan, and just can't cut the whole clean eating thing even though I wish I could.
I've ordered my food shopping, and it consists of things like asda reduced calorie frozen ready meals, mild cheddar cheese sticks, bananas, apples, low fat custard pots, freddos, ham, reduced fat garlic chicken kievs and pancakes, breakfast waffles & cereals.
I know those things contain carbs, and that ready meals contain a lot of sodium & a lot of that list is processed. But they are the foods I enjoy. I do eat some fruit & veg, veggies mainly in the form of birds eye steamed veg bags.. and I eat a lot of protein like an omelette with 2 whole eggs then 4 egg whites & low fat grated cheddar etc.
So as long as I stick within my calorie allowance & drink plenty of water, then are the foods I've listed really gonna hinder my weight loss that much?
If anyone thinks I may not lose weight at a steady speed by eating those things then please tell me. I'm just worried that I can't eat things like that on a diet & I won't lose weight.. but I've tried clean whole eating and can't bare it. So isn't it better to eat things I enjoy, but only 1500 calories worth, rather than give up and binge?
