This week I tracked my calories daily in a food tracker. It's not really *necessary* on Medifast, if you follow the plan, eat 5 Medifast meals and measure your meat and veggies, but I think with my slower losses it may be beneficial for me to see where I am and what may need to change. Here's my stats for the last 7 days, averaged:
average per day:
108 g protein
89 g carbs
33 g fat
This is all perfect, within the guidelines set by Medifast dietitians. The only thing I'd like to change is to lower the carbs just slightly; it's okay to have up to 100 g carbs per day on Medifast, but the "optimal" range is 80-85g/day.
What I really like about this plan is that it literally takes me about 5 minutes per day to log my food. It takes little thought and I am free to focus on *life* rather than food. I do have to decide what to cook for dinner each night, but that's no harder than it was for the past 20+ years having a family!
I did not exercise this week. At all. I totally dropped the ball on that and my body is feeling it! I'm a little stiffer and less energized when I don't bike, so my goal for the coming week is to get back on.
That's all for now. Getting closer to being back under 200 again. Finally.
