I decided to eat cereal (Raisin Bran and Cheerios) with rice milk and the occasional homemade spaghetti with homemade sauce or homemade rice. Never thought about the amount of calories I was ingesting as I was only thinking about the weight loss that should occur. Haha, no it never happened. My weight is basically the same since then. I felt more tired and way more irritated during that time around January up to the second week of February, where I finally starting buying food again to replenish my lost calories.
Why did I think to diet with those foods? Well, one I was planning to quit my job at the time, so it seemed like the perfect solution to cutting spending. Not the brightest way to do that given my my body is 8-9 years older than the times I was able to live on less food. My body is much bigger and more muscles, so need more calories. Go figure.
It is sad we want to cut certain things out of our diet in the name of trendiness. Imagine all the calories and good fats that are missing when you switch! How do you replace those? Do you think to replace those? It is something to think about when looking to change your diet. Losing out on crucial nutrition is harmful to the body and mind.
