Dinner and Calories

Dinner was excellent tonight! I sauteed some thin steaks in olive oil with sliced local onions. I then made gravy out of the pan drippings and some bone broth (gravy was for the kids, I abstained) which the kids ate over their mashed potatoes. I had mashed steamed cauliflower myself. The rest of my plate was filled with fresh-from-the-garden spinach in Balsamic dressing and an organic local carrot. It was really a great dinner, fully satisfying.

I listed my other meals today in my last post, and I also had an iced latte (no sugar) while I was out.

Stats for today:
1104 calories, 69 g protein, 61 g carbs, 63 g fat

Even though I was allowing myself up to 1600 calories last week and 1500 this week, it seems I naturally fall at about 1100 calories after dinner if I just listen to my hunger. I do usually have a little something in the evening, generally protein-rich, between 100-200 calories. I will do that again tonight (fruit and Greek yogurt) but am too full to even consider eating more right now.

Looking forward to another good day tomorrow.

glad you finally found that "non-sweet" spot! listening to our bodies is the hardest thing when they've been drowned and covered in layers of fat for most of our lives. glad you're hearin yours again!

It is so good to hear the optimism and satisfaction in your tone. Isn't it amazing how different we feel when we cut out that sugar and wheat. I find my whole life suddenly feels manageable and I'm satisfied with myself and my meals.

Keep up the amazing work. You deserve to be so proud of yourself!
