High Calorie

From viewing myFitnessPal I see what my issue is eating wise.

I don’t necessarily overeat regularly  or binge eat regularly, although I do occasionally. When I do OVEReat, it’s usually sweets, like chocolate, candy, cookies.

What I do is eat extremely high calorie foods regularly. That is the food I enjoy. I don’t cook so not willing to make substitutions.

Yesterday for instance:

Breakfast – Acai Primo Bowl from Jamba Juice (490 calories): A tasty twist of Açaí juice, soymilk, blueberries, strawberries and bananas, which we top with organic granola, fresh bananas, fresh blueberries, coconut and a drizzle of honey.

Lunch: Chicken Luncheables (300 calories)

Dinner: Wingstop: 8 chicken wings with season fries, blue cheese and sweet tea (1674 calories). What I could have done differently is order the 6 piece instead of 8 piece and I could have not gotten sweet tea that would have cut about 435 calories

Snack: Smart Ones Santa Fe Rice & Beans (260 calories), 2 strawberry popcicles (70 calories)

Total calories yesterday : 2,794 calories (that is 833 calories over my maximum allowed by MyFitnessPal to lose 1 pound per week)

This is a regular occurrence. Last Tuesday and Wednesday I went over my calories because of pizza hut. Last Monday I went over my calories cause of Starbucks lemon pound cake and vent macchiato.  Last saturday I went over my calories because of french toast. The friday before that I went over my calories because of a vanilla milkshake from Jack in the box. Before that it was Popeyes. I might be eating out more because of the stress with my job/income or my medication or just my life in general. I spent $103 on food the last 7 days. My budget is to spend about $75 – $100 each week on food that includes eating out, take out, delivery, liquor and groceries.

I do have days when I eat rather healthily and under my calories. I’m just not sure if it balances out. We will see if I gain weight.

One thing I have tried the past week is drinking more water instead of the zero calorie ice tea and 15-calorie Lemonade/Fruit Punch. I bought a huge case of bottled water from Sams Club and I drink maybe 1-2 bottles (16.9 fl oz) of water a day.
