How I Eat

  • I don't track calories or write down what I eat
  • "relatively" clean and mostly whole foods. No frozen meals, no artificial sweeteners, no HFCS, almost no over processed items.
  • no soda or juice
  • lots of water and tea
  • use sugar in my am tea but that's about it
  • whole grains, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, quinoa, steel oats etc
  • always protein with any grain
  • use whey protein powder on occasion
  • use flax meal and sometime flax oil
  • lean meats (chicken mostly) and rarely some red meat
  • outside food 2-6 times a month max
  • eat 4-5 times a day
  • keep my bread carb grams to under 30 with a meal and 15 for a snack (crackers), I don't count the fruit or veggie carbs that I might be eating.
  • I try not to eat bread, when I do it will be in a sandwich at lunch
  • I keep my portions small and I eat to satisfaction (not stuffed)
  • I try to add fresh fruits and veggies when I can. I have a hard time with the veggies.
