I've tried to do things the way of my Beachbody coach -- 100% clean eating, not counting calories.
Fail. I need more structure.
I've tried to do things the way of my nutritionist -- a calorie is a calorie is a calorie.
Fail. By introducing "too many" carbs, I've created a slippery slope that is hard to stop.
I need to get back to -- or closer to -- high protein, low carb.
I've been on this up and down for the past month, trying to figure out the best eating plan for me, when I know all along what it is.
Certainly I can take tips from both techniques -- I've actually really enjoyed making a protein smoothie for breakfast. And adding yogurt as a snack has actually been really helpful -- filling while still satisfying my sweet tooth.
Today was a good day. And tomorrow I see both Terri and the nutritionist. Between the two of them, I'm hoping we can give me some new strategies for dealing with my stress, other than comfort food.
