bedbug Posted August 21, 2013 Share Posted August 21, 2013 I'm trying to follow the whole 30 meal planning template, but doing so is not getting me to my next meal without being REALLY hungry for an hour or two while I wait for the clock to tick away. I'm posting my food log in the forum for that purpose, but here's what I ate yesterday: - MEAL 1 - ground turkey thigh with sauteed veges (zucchini, broccoli rabe, and celery) mixed in.; blueberries in some coconut milk. - MEAL 2 - beef stew with veges; tuna salad (whole can of tuna, 1/2 an avocado, and some lime juice) rolled up in some kale leaves - SNACK - (I know this should include protein, but the can of tuna I grabbed in my rush to get out the door for work belonged to my husband and not me -- and had soy oil in it, so I couldn't eat it.) Banana, homemade coconut yogurt w/ shredded coconut in it - SNACK #2 (I have an hour drive home from work and I was SOOOOOOO hungry I couldn't stand it.) Apple - MEAL 3 - ground beef with sautÃ©ed veges (zucchini, regular broccoli, and celery) mixed in on top of lettuce with an avocado dressing (avocado, coconut milk, lime juice, and dill) My meal 3 was huge because I was ravenous... I don't understand the fat guidelines for meals. The template says, "Add fat in the following recommended amounts per meal." Then there is a list that includes things like 1/2 to 1 avocado and 1 to 2 thumb size portions of coconut oil. You're only supposed to eat ONE of these per meal? If so, I'm eating way too much fat. For example, in meal 3 above, I sautÃ©ed the veges in probably 1 thumb size worth of coconut oil, had probably 1/4 of avocado and 1/8 of a cup of coconut milk in the amount of dressing I ate, and had all of the fat that comes with ground beef. That seems like it exceeds the amount of fat according to the template. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
