Enough Is Enough... or is it?

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

When it comes to eating and tracking, how much is enough? Tracking doesn't just insure that someone isn't eating too many calories. It can also detect when someone is eating too little. I was surprised to find out that is what is happening with me.

I found I am only eating 850-950 calories per day. Not only that, but I am not eating enough fat. Yes, i said the taboo word... FAT. Too much fat is obviously not healthy, especially if it is the transfats and saturated fats, but it is also unhealthy to not eat any fat. Healthy fats like mono and poly are important.

Tracking is the key to finding out where to tweak an eating plan and determine what is enough. My goal this week is to get my calories up and get more calories from healthy fats. What is your goal for this week?

p.s. Here is my yummy breakfast of Siggi's yogurt (MY FAVORITE), fresh cut up peach and chia seeds. It was delicious!

    I often have the same problem. As far as not enough. It helps when I workout heavy. I am bad for not eating breakfast or even lunch when I am not working that day. Good blog for pointing out we need good fat. I eat peanut butter and take fish oil!

    Yes, tracking definitely tells you a LOT of things you may or may not be aware of with your nutrition. That's a good thing!

    As for Siggi's Skyyr and yogurt. . . AWESOME! Nothing better, IMHO.

    I'm never in the eating few calories emoticon But eating too little or missing any group is NOT healthy at all. I agree. Glad you're tracking and becoming aware of that.

    Yes, I also found that I was eating too few calories at times. I easily get the fat, but struggle with the protein. I'm now a vegetarian. But even as a meat-eater I was often low in protein.
