So for the past two weeks I have been eating Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice meals for lunch, they weren't too bad and had only about 300 calories each but I realized how many freaking calories they had so I have decided to go low carb, low calorie and try to eat more protein.
I eat breakfast and lunch at work so here is what I have for the week:
Yoplait Yogurt Light (100 calories, 16g of carbs)...I may eat one or two of these, I'm not much of a breakfast eater. May end up picking up some cottage cheese.
2 String cheese (100 calories, 2g carbs)
Sweat Peas (60 calories, 8g of carbs)
Tuna & pickle sandwich on wheat bread no mayo (approx. 225 calories, 27 carbs)
or Canned chicken & pickle sandwich on wheat no mayo (approx. 245 calories, 27 carbs)
Snack (if hungry):
1 string cheese (50 calories, 1g of carbs)
Still unsure what to do for dinner, if I follow this meal plan or close to it then I am eating about 650 calories before dinner and 54g of carbs. The Lean Cuisine on its own had 40g of carbs so I am cutting out quite a few.
Any suggestions? I like to snack during the day to keep myself from being hungry, even if they are small snacks. I am also trying to choose foods high in protein like tuna and chicken and it leaves me more room for dinner when I eat with my boyfriend.
