caloriecount.com AND I resisted the Dove chocolates in the cabinet! Woot! I was surprised how much I went over my calories and consumed 1700 calories yesterday and I actually thought I was doing well. Today is much better. I was very impressed with the new updates on caloriecount since it now analyzes your day and gives you a very detailed readout on calories, nutrients, protein, fats (sat and unsat), cholesterol, fiber, calorie deficit vs. overage customized to you. I'm surprised that I was low on some nutrients and fiber but met the protien. It helps me to decide what to change and what to add into my diet tomorrow.
Something I am learning since I am eating the foods I'm supposed to - if I keep eating - and push past what i should be eating, my stomach lets me! And the more I eat.....the more I can eat! If I stop early on, it almost seems like the food doesn't get used to going through the band. It feels tighter. If I push it - and eat more than I really should - the band just seems to loosen up and let me! If it stayed this way, it could be a good thing. It would occasionally allow me to eat but restrict me most of the time.
Today, for example, I packed a tunafish sandwich. I could only eat less than half before I worked out. I know that's because I didn't eat breakfast - only coffee. I ate the other half of the sandwich driving back to work after I worked out. I was quite full - but satisfactorily full. I had greek yogurt and a bananna still that I had packed that I couldn't eat. No way. Then tonight I had about 1 cup of chili. Just right. I feel good - satisfied. (smile)
