I am going on vacation to the beach in December, and I would like to lose about 5 pounds, just to have a flatter stomach. I am trying to cut down on calories and exercise when I can. Here's what I ate for two days. Should I add anything or remove anything? Is it healthy?



Tuesday:

-boost energy drink

-granola bar

-cheese and lettuce sandwich

-grapes

-onion soup

-pear

-raw brocolli

-cooked brocolli and cauliflower

-3 small fake meatballs

-apple



Today:

-two slices toast

-granola bar

-carrots

-cheese and lettuce sandwich

-pack of mentos

-two slices of bread

-a pear

-grapes

-1 serving of wheat crackers

-apple

-filled pasta with tomato sauce

It's hard to tell without the amounts. Unless you are helping yourself to huge portions is doesn't look like much food - but then I eat a lot. Plug it all into something like fitday - that will give you a rough idea of nutrients, calories, etc.

to me, it doesn't look like a lot of food. I'm 21, have a relatively "flat" tummy and eat more than that, and exercise.

Really? I feel like I am eating too much. I eat once every hour when I'm at home, and once every two hours at school.

How does your diet look, Snownose? It looks like you are starving (unless you are a toddler). I really don't know what else to say, as I don't know if you genuinely don't know, or if you have an ED and are just trying to get attention, so I will simply answer your question. Either way, eat more variety, more calories, more protein-rich foods and have fun with your food!

I don't think she's straving herself. It looks fine to me.

But I don't eat a lot so maybe you shouldn't listen to me.

I don't think I have a problem... I eat whenever I'm hungry, stop when I'm full. Maybe my body doesn't need that much food since I'm pretty inactive and small.

That's why I was curious about serving sizes. Giant serving sizes this would be fine. Tiny servings sizes I see a bit of a starvation diet here. (To me a "serving" of wheat biscuits would be almost a whole box. Heh.)

snownose: if you aren't eating enough, your body adjusts for the deficit in calories. I don't think anyone should be "on a diet," intead, i think they should be eating healthy, well-rounded meals with adequate activity.
