I started Monday (yay!)
...and I'm doing okay.
I read a lot of the links, thanks. I will probably see a dietician, but it may be a couple of months before I'm able to take off work for it.
I have a couple of questions, but first I'd like to run my weekday menu by y'all to make sure I haven't forgot anything.
2 servings oatmeal with almond milk, an apple, banana and an orange.
Lunch (basically snacks during the day) 12 oz cashews and 10 oz baby carrots.
2 cans various beans
1 can diced tomato with chile
1 can lentil soup
a few small red potatos
2 servings brown rice
an enormous salad
Disregarding the fresh vegetables this puts me at about 3200 calories for the day. I'm not sure it's enough but it's about all I can eat. Over a third of those calories are from the cashews.
I pretty much eat while I'm driving from one stop to the next during the day, when I was eating the 6 oz of cheese with the cashews I didn't get hungry, I could make it 14 or 16 hours and be okay. The carrots aren't treating me as well, I'm getting really hungry during the day, and it's kind of distracting. Any suggestions for something ready to eat, gluten free and healthy that would keep me satiated during the day?
Is there any advantage of dried beans over canned beans?
Is there anything I'm lacking, something else I should eat to make my diet balanced?
I do take a lot of supplements, and have for a long time. I just realized I take fish oil, mainly for joint pain and to balance out all the omega sixes I used to eat. Is there something else that would take the place of fish oil? Or do I even need it?
Thanks in advance.
