I have been on my diet since Jan 8th. We have been doing weight watchers (the old program). I have lost 30 pounds in a little over 8 weeks so I am pleased with my results so far. However, as I become addicted to losing weight I am trying to really tweak my intake. At the beginning my wife and I made a pact to give up pop cold turkey as that was a major downfall for us. Other than that it was portion control but we would still have a big mac or fries as long as it was within our points. Maybe I should just continue on that path but I figure as I continue to lose it will be tougher to make choices like that so this week I have completely changed what I eat. I am listing my daily menu below. Please feel free to tell me what I may need to change. According to my math my BMR with a 1.2 multiplier (I have a desk job) is 2883.60 Breakfast: 1 cup of strawberries and blackberries (50 calories) 16oz black coffee Morning snack: 1 cup of celery (20 calories) 8 oz of water Lunch: Peanut butter (Jif creamy, 2tbls) on white bread (350 cal) (and no I am not giving up my white bread. If I stop eating PB and make lunch meat or something then I can change bread, but not for PB) 16 oz of water Afternoon snack: 1.5 cups of red and green bell peppers (60 cal) 8 oz of water Drive Home: Fiber one chewy oats and chocolate bar (140 cal) Dinner: Varies from night to night. Last night it was a turkey breast, gravy, broccoli, and wild rice. I try to keep the dinner around 900 calories. 16oz water with MIO flavoring Night Snack: Weight watchers ice cream or something around 100 cal. So with that being said my calories have been 1600-1800. My goal is to lose 2-3 pounds a week for the next 10 weeks and it seems this calorie intake may do that but what would you change if you were me?
