7/7/13 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Tuesday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 8. July 2012 18:52

What are some of your favorite foods?  I would have to say something I miss ever since I began eating healthy and doing the Jenny Craig program is everything bagels from Panera!  Unfortunately, bagels are always a "no-no."  They are high calorie, void of nutrients, without enough protein to last you until lunch.  However, I do LOVE macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes.  The good news is, these kinds of things are allowed for dinner as long as the sodium is under approximately 650 mg, the calories are less than 300 and the fat is less than 4 grams.  The second most important thing to watch for is the SERVING SIZE.  Usually these kinds of boxed side dishes tell you on the label 1/2 cup, 1/4 cup, etc.  If you love dishes such as pizza (which I do!) you can get creative and buy whole wheat thin crust pizza, Healthy Choice Marinara (follow serving size when spreading on crust), and fat-free cheese (once again, follow serving size).  Usually the label on the crust will say that you can have 1/3 of the pizza.  It's been pretty exciting because I have now provided examples of how I eat during the day to some of my friends and they have lost anywhere from 5 -20 pounds!
