Some background regarding my diet plan.
I’m breastfeeding my 3 month old, so I know that I can’t diet as women who aren’t just post baby, do. I visited a dietitian to consult about what I can do in order to drop the last 9 kg from pregnancy and then a further 5 kg, to the weight that I felt most comfortable at. She said that I should consume about 2400 calories per day, at which I would shed about 1 kg per week.
I didn’t really understood what 2400 calories per day looks like until later, when I weighed and documented my food. Oh My Lord! I was barely able to get the calorie count up to 1500! And since my friend is going on a diet where she has to consume 1500 calories per day, I decided that my target calorie range will be between 1500-2000 per day.
But I can’t really call this plan a diet because first of all, I’m not cutting down on the amount I eat. Actually, I’m upping it because we should be eating 5 times a day. Second of all, I choose what is in my meal plan. This diet of mine is rather a focus on eating a wide variety of healthy (and yummy!) food.
Please join me in the journey I am beginning. I will make mistakes, I will not always be on time with meals, I’ll probably even skip meals here and there due various situations of everyday family life, but I will learn, and I hope you will too!!
What are your healthy eating rules? Any pointers??? I’m up for all the advice I can get!
