Food Diary 4/11/2019 - 10/11/2019

Updated: Nov 14, 2019

I decided to try and get back on track in finding a healthier balance food-wise. To keep myself accountable, I'm giving this weekly food diary a try. Curious about what I'm eating? Did I get some results eating like this? You'll find out here:

Sidenote: I'm trying to eat around 1500 calories a day, this calculation is based on my height (159cm), my current weight (55.6kg), my fat percentage (32 percent) and my daily activity (not much since I work on my computer almost all day). Please calculate the amount of calories that YOU need, in function of your goals.

Conclusion: I've stayed around the calories that I wanted BUT I notice that whenever I've eaten something less healthy, I tend to skip meals to compensate. And in total, the fat percentage of the food I eat is still to high, next week I'll try to go for more carbs&protein. It wasn't easy to watch my food since I had multiple lunches outdoors for business and with friends. I did manage to choose a healthy option most of the time. At the end of the week, it got harder to make good choices food-wise.


Progress? I can definitely see some small progress in the mirror already, I'm less bloated and feel leaner. On the scale, there's a slight difference too. My weight is now 54.6 kg. My sleep was better this week too, so that's a win!
