Hunger game???

Thursday, August 23, 2012

No not the popular movie I still haven't seen yet... But my own personal hunger game. Today I have been in pain all day pretty much and it has felt like an everlasting hunger pain! The only time it would fade any at all was when I ate. And I HAVE been eating daily within my daily calorie goals & most of the other goals. What I can tell you is that now that I have been watching what I eat & making healthier choices, I always feel hungry! In fact last night I went to bed with my tummy growling after having eaten well within my calorie range & actually going over my carb range slightly. I was low on my fat & protein intake, but very close to where I should have been. This is something else I have noticed since tracking my food daily - i usually have to choose at least one category that I am okay with going over or under on because I can't seem to ever be within range in all categories!

So that is why I am calling my diet strategy my own personal hunger game! It's a strategic game where I have to figure out what to eat & when in order to quench my hunger AND stay within my ranges. Time will only tell who the winner of this "game" shall be-hunger & my weight staying where it is or ME & making my goal weight w/healthier eating habits!

Talk about a strategy game! And people say Sudoko is a brain teaser!!! emoticon

    I am going to have to invest in some protein shakes ... maybe that will help alleviate my hunger! I can't ever seem to get enough protein to make it through the day...but I am still learning!

    Say hello to your raging metabolism..that's a good thing! A little more protein and a little less carbs at each meal will keep you full. It's really hard to get all your calories when you eat the right foods..fruits and veggies have very little calories, I use nuts or a protein shake as a filler if I'm under ranged. Great job on doing the right things!

    If you can up your protein. Not just meet. But quality protein. Keeps me full longer. Good luck. And roughage. Hunger is no fun.
