Wholey32 Posted October 12, 2012 Share Posted October 12, 2012 So I have come to the realization that I suck at doing this diet! I didn't do enough research before starting it and kind of discover little bits as I go. First thing I did wrong was eating a ton of nuts and seeds. The next thing I did wrong was I bought some evoo cooking spray I was really excited about. I didn't even think to look on the label for "no-no" additives. I found out yesterday (day 16) that it has organic alcohol grain in it. Last weekend I went out of town for the weekend and pretty much ate nothing but bananas and almonds so I wouldn't cheat. It was a whirlwind weekend and planning meals wasn't an option. I also consumed some other fruits. I have been so proud of myself for not cheating up until this point. It's a pretty complicated diet for me because I am not much of a cook and I am also a picky eater! I read some other entries on here and realized I am doing it all wrong. I kind of eat small meals throughout the day...like a banana for bfast with a handful of nuts, an orange and some nuts for lunch, and egg for a snack, then a pretty decent dinner of either chicken or beef and some veggies. I get really tired of meat and eggs pretty fast bc of the fact I don't cook, so my options are limited. The reason I am concerned is I can absolutely tell I haven't lost any weight. Even though I feel as if I should lose something for cutting out all of the crap I used to eat and because I eat a lot less than I used to. I am pretty sure I need to start over and do it right. Right? I have several questions. One is should I be eating a every meal like I do for dinner? I guess I also need to know if its ok to snack my meals, or should I eat them all together? Also, can I take a cheat day in between now and when I start over? I am getting tired of my eating choices. I had experienced the joy of feeling like food was no longer in control of me...that I can make decisions based on my body and not the control of food. I didn't crave junk and I felt good. After the wedding weekend, however, I feel cravings again and I feel hungrier more often. Help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
