What I Eat in a Day

Lately many people have been asking what I normally eat in a day in order to lose weight. The weight loss diet plan that I’ve been following is Weight Watchers. It is both the easiest and healthiest way to lose weight, like ever!! You get to eat whatever you want, just in way smaller portions than you would be used to. (DISCLAIMER: you do NOT have to be on this diet plan in order get some ideas from my list of meal ideas!) However, before I get into what I eat on this plan, I HAVE to tell you about the key to weight loss and health in general…. WATER. I know you’ve heard it a million times but it is so important that you drink half of your body weight in ounces every single day! (For example, if you weigh 150lbs, you should be drinking at least 75oz in water daily) Failure to do this will dramatically slow down, if not, halt weight loss. According to WomensHealthMag.com, plentiful consumption of H2O fuels your workouts, increases your metabolism, holds off hunger kicks (aka delays any hangriness, LOL), boosts energy levels, and keeps us from drinking ‘poisonous’ drinks such as sodas, and sugary coffees.

Now, onto the good stuff! What I eat in a day!!

When it comes to breakfast, I prepare it the night before and make sure that it is something quick and convenient for a busy morning. The three things that I normally rotate for breakfast are as follows:

  • 2 Quakers chocolate rice cakes with a tablespoon of almond butter and sliced bananas
  • 2 eggs (Either scrambled or sunny-side up)
  • Protein shake (My go-to shakes are Muscle milk, they are dairy free and I try to limit dairy as much as possible)

For lunch I again, try to make it as simple, yet filling, as possible. This is what an average lunch in a day in my life looks like:

  • A handful of spinach with a tablespoon of Robert Rothschild Roasted Pineapple and Habanero sauce and two boiled eggs
  • Pure Protein Crunch Peanut Butter Bites
  • Fruit!! (You should eat any fruits before 4 p.m. to burn off the sugars they produce. While they are healthy sugars, it is still important to rid your body of them, especially when it comes to weight loss)

Dinner is when I try to eat my serving of carbs for the day. I make sure to keep a balance of protein, vegetables and healthy carbs. My normal dinner looks often looks like this:

  • 3-4oz of wild caught salmon (hint hint: salmon has a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids which work wonders on your skin!), 1/2  of a cup of quinoa, and 1 cup of baked zucchini (all you have to do to cook the zucchini is set your oven to 350°, chop them up into either disks or spears, season it with any spices your heart desires, drizzle with about a tablespoon of olive oil, and bake them for 20 minutes)

Oh my goodness am I a snacker! I will be the first to admit that I eat sometimes just because I’m bored! This is okay as long as you snack on the right things…. No candy or chips!! Things I often grab when I get the munchies are:

  • Honey Roasted Almonds (These are seriously like crack! SO addicting!)
  • Grapes cut in half and sprinkled with a tiny bit of Berry Blue Jell-O powder (you WON’T regret this one, the closest thing  you can get to Sour Patch Kids on a diet. LOL)
  • Boiled eggs (Can you tell I love eggs yet?!)
  • Ginger tea (This is my fav! I’m in love with spicy teas and the ginger helps with digestion which can improve your metabolism! Yay, yay, and YAY!!)

I hope this post gave you guys some ideas for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners! I know the variety isn’t huge but I’m probably the most boring eater of all time, hahaha! Thank you so much for reading, until the next post!

Stay Fit, Fab, and Faithful!

xoxo, Abbey
