1. Oatmeal with soymilk and fruit
2. Tofu with corn and raisins
3. Chickpea-vegetable salad on whole-wheat toast
4. Garlic-potato-vegetable soup
5. Lentils and brown rice over lettuce and tomatoes
I also had three cups of tea (one regular, two decaf), a small glass of grapefruit juice, a cup of hot cocoa, and over two quarts of water. (I completely drained my Camelbak following the morning run.)
None of the food I ate today had a significant amount of fat, other than the tofu. I'm not worried that I'll gain weight eating this way. I have to get out of the "I'm fat" mindset, which was one of the issues bothering me this morning. I don't normally count calories, but I did calculate my basal metabolic rate today out of curiosity, and found that it would take about 2100 calories daily to maintain my current weight (135 lbs) at my current moderate level of activity. I burn about 100 calories a mile running alone, and I doubt I am eating even 2000 calories a day with foods like those above. (I did count calories for a week as a spot-check, so I do have some idea.)
Anyway, just some ramblings as I continue getting in shape. I'm caught up with the latest episodes of both the American and Australian versions of Biggest Loser, and am glad I'm doing things my own way instead of theirs...
