Breakfast lunch and dinner and maybe one or two snacks in between consisting of either fruit or veg and lots of water.
Keep it fresh, you can have eggs for breakfast, whole meal roasts, fruits. Salad for lunches or a jacket potato willed with whatever you like with some greens on the side. And normal dinners just cooke everything from scratch and don’t add fats/sugars, keep it healthy and you’ll do it!
Try coming off of all sodas, juice, and fastfood. All of these are high is carbs and calories. Eat more veggies, and lean meats (turkey, chicken breast, basically white meat) instead of eating candy or ice cream for desserts, have a fruit smoothie. You need to eat smart. For example, there’s around 340 calories in a medium McDonald’s french fry. So you could either eat that very small amount of food for 340 calories and be hungry, or choose to eat a larger portion of food such as a salad, chicken breast with veggies, or some other. There are 3000 calories in a pound. Sedentary females burn around 1700 – 2000 a day. So if you were to eat only 1500 calories a day, pair that with working out, then you would be essentially burning more calories than you eat. Therefore, your body will use it’s fat to make energy, and you will lose weight.
You need to figure out your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure). There are a lot of online calculators that will do the math for you. This number will be the amount of calories you burn per day. Then you need to track the amount of calories you are eating by tracking all the food you eat. A calorie deficit means that you are eating fewer calories that you are burning. For every 3500 extra calories you burn, you lose 1 pound. It’s science and math. Once you figure out the formula, you can adjust it to work with your lifestyle.
It’s definitely a mental game and it’s totally personalized. You have to tap into what’s triggering you to eat, looking at your past and present. Identify your feelings when you’re eating. Try to become more aware of your food, chew slow, put your fork down between bites. All these practices are part of mindfulness. Let me know if it sounds like something you’d want to know more about.
