Tonight we have another Thanksgiving.  I went horseback riding today and then on a two hour walk through the plowed fields on our farm for a good workout before the big dinner.  I also prepared by planning out my meals for the day.  Learning the balance of this new diet is tricky but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.  I kept my fats and starches to a minimum because I knew I would have more of these for our meal at dinner.  So here's the summary of what my 1200 day on maintenance should look like:

5 starches, 6 lean meats, 3 fats, 2 fruits, 2 milks, and tons of non-starchy veggies

I'm going to break down what I had for each meal so you can see what this looks like:

Breakfast -

2 slices of 40 calorie bread (1 starch) with 1/4 cup Break-free eggs (1 meat), and 1 oz. turkey sausage (1 meat)

Banana (1 fruit)

Cup coffee with 2 tsp. fat-free creamer (1/2 milk)

Snack -

JC Anytime Bar (1 milk)

Lunch -

Mushrooms and tomatoes grilled with garlic powder and pepper

100 calorie Whole Wheat Bagel (1 starch) with 2 tsp. low-fat peanut butter (1 fat)

1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese (2 meats)

Snack -


Dinner -

2 oz. turkey (2 meats)

Salad (iceberg lettuce, tomatoes) 2 tbsp. light ranch (1 fat)

1/4 cup potatoes (1 starch and 1 fat...from margarine in it)

Snack -

1/8 slice of fat-free/sugar-free pumpkin pie (2 starches, 1/2 milk)

GRAND TOTAL:  5 starches, 2 fruits, 2 milk, tons of veggies, 3 fats, and 6 meats
