I haven’t made one of these in a while and I’ve got a few reasons why not:
- I struggle to cook here at my dad’s place because I can’t meal prep here (no fridge space)
- I’ve been looking for alternative solutions to weight loss (and found one) because I hated tracking my foods
So here’s the update: Between stress, prayer (to take my appetite away), “skinny tea”, beach body, and wearing a waist trainer every other day, I just don’t eat much anymore. I probably eat once or twice in a day and only 1 of those meals will be “large”. I mostly drink smoothies (superfood powder mixed with a bolthouse premade smoothie), coffee, and water during the day. When I become the least bit anxious, I completely lose my appetite and I don’t eat anything except fruit sometimes.
Now, I know this sounds unhealthy. Okay, it is unhealthy. However, it’s working in my favor. I needed to hit the reset button on my appetite so I could get a grip on my dietary choices. It’s so much easier now for me to chose to eat nutritious foods because I’m not constantly starving and willing to eat anything. And when I do eat unhealthy, I don’t each much of it. So far, I’ve lost 7lbs and I know I’ll lose more if I keep this up. When I do eat, it’s usually at least 1/2 vegetables.
So that’s that. Hopefully, as I get myself together, I’ll get a better grip on this. But for now, it’s working very well for me.
