I also just started my new food plan 3 days ago, and it's so easy adjusting to lower calories now. My brain just sees the meal plan and goes "Ok, that's the food I'm getting so that will be enough." I may get a little hungry every now and then, but nothing a green tea or glass of water won't fix. I have already noticed I'm not bloated anymore and am not holding all that carb water retention either.
These are two of my favourite meals this week - my dinner of chicken and low GI veggies and my mid morning of eggs, sweet potato & spinach (this one has half rice & half sweet potato as that was what I had.) Oh how I love eggs! Porridge is good in the morning too, perfect winter breakfast.
So feeling good! Next 2 months or so are going to probably getting tougher, but I'm so ready for it and embracing it. Going off track was great actually as it has reaffirmed how important my goals are and where I am happy (and not happy) with my fitness and body. There is a silver lining in every cloud as they say.
That's all for now...I would estimate another photo update in a few weeks.
