Eating Regimen: Day 3

Well, day 3.  Morning sugar = 119.  Certainly all right.

Think about this:  You didn't get fat overnight, did you?  Nope.  And if you're like I, it took years of day by day eating wrong amounts, wrong ingredients and at the wrong times (midnight, etc.)  Oh yes, we've all been there. And we all certainly have the T-shirt, don't we?

But now we're on a new path.  And it's one day at a time, one meal at a time.  And we're planning in advance what we're going to eat and sticking to the plan.  The diary will help.

Plan your meals in detail for a few days BEFORE you go to the market to buy your food.  That way you can stay on target.

Remember:  One Day at a Time, One Meal at a Time, One pound at a Time.

Activia Lite = 70 calories
1 hard-boiled egg = 70 calories
1 slice Boar's Head Lo-Sodium Ham = 2oz = 60 calories
That's 200 calories for breakfast.

Now do something fun that does not involve food this morning.  Whatever makes you happy.


5 oz Tuna, drained of water = 120 Cals
6 button mushrooms chopped = 10 cals
2 stalks celery chopped finely  = 0 cals
8 grape tomatoes halved = 25 cals
1 Tsb. Hellman's Lite Mayo = 40
1 cup Cantaloupe = 50 cals.

That's 245 calories for lunch - I/m on Target!!

Blood sugar before dinner = 97!!

Chicken Breast, 4oz. = 200 cal.
Broccoli, 189 gms. = 60 cal .
1 Tsp Margarine = 20 cal.
Total Dinner = 280 Calories
Total for the day so far = 725 Calories

Leaves 100 Calories for bedtime snack.
