I have to eat how much food????

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Seriously, how much food does Spark expect me to eat? I'm on the meal plan trying to devour my lunch and I'm barley though half of it and I'm stuffed! I think I'm going to carry the rest of this over into another mid day small meal to finish! Here is my lunch:

This is the equivalent in calories to a McDonalds Premium Crispy Chicken Club Sandwich and it has about half the fat. Just so you know, that is one of those oversized dinner plates and the bowl holds a little more than 2 cups. I could finish one of those McDonald's sandwiches in 2 min flat and still have room for more! Loving the amount of healthy food I need to eat just to reach the minimum calories I need for the day. It takes a little extra work, but right now I have 3 more servings of Asian Chicken Salad I can eat for the next few days, or it can be a healthy dish to send in my husband's lunch box tomorrow. Totally worth it!

Wish me luck on finishing this beast of a meal!

    I know about the feeling of soooo much food to eat. What I often do to make sure I get all the calories I "have" to eat in a day is to use the food I don't eat as snacks. That way I don't get hungry, I don't go over my calorie/fat count, and I don't waste food.

    Food looks *VERY* good, but you are right, it looks like a lot of food!!!

    KAITMEND, actually, my dinner is comparable in caloric size to lunch today; my breakfast was low in calories (but a large amount to eat!). My problem in the past has actually been getting enough to eat when I go healthy. If I eat EVERYTHING on my plan I will just be hitting my minimum calories for weight loss and I'll still have some extras for maintenance. It's awesome. Over a year ago my personal trainer even chewed me out for not eating enough even though I thought I was. The meal plan is helping me stay balanced, which is another reason why I'm using it. I'm losing weight and eating a ton! I love it!!

    Woah! Def. just eat until you're full - I don't use the meal plans but my guess is that your lunch is huge because you will have a very small dinner.
