If you are ever wondering (like I was) “Why am I just maintaining the same weight, or even gaining weight?” I found it’s a good idea for me to recheck my daily food intake.
I use http://www.cronometer.com to occasionally check in and see where my percentages of fat intake, vs. carbohydrates and protein are.
Since I aim for the 80/10/10 raw/vegan way to eat, I plug in that option in the Profile. And it helps me see where my percentages are for the day, as well as calories and exercise.
Sometimes I think my fat intake can’t be that high, but then I log everything in, and I find myself up near 30% of my day as fat, which is much too high for me and my goals!
I recently started logging again, and it helps me get my fat back down to between 12 and 20% per day, averaging around 16% fat per week, which makes me much happier to see! (It’s still hard for me to get down to 10% consistently, so I’m very happy seeing below 20% for now!)
This is just a sample day…
My calorie intake is still high, between 2300 and 3000 per day. And I am swimming for about 70 minutes, around a mile, so I feel good about that. I’m not hungry when I go to sleep at night, nor am I too full in any way.
I’m happy, no thrilled really, that I no longer binge eat to the point where I don’t feel well! That is a HUGE praise and I am soooo thankful to God for these healings in my life!
Love and all healing to YOU out there!!!!
