So my mom and have started making a meal plan for the week. We have been doing only dinner for the past month and realized we should expand and plan out our breakfasts and lunches as well. Being pregnant makes me even more nervous of weight gain!
We were thinking of all the different diets we have done, such as: high fiber, gluten free, low sugar, counting calories, by body type, etc. and where each of these have been beneficial to us we end up failing in the end. Yes, I want a low sugar diet but I still want to be able to enjoy an apple fritter on occasion. We realized if we could incorporate all these diets into our meal plans then maybe we can get ourselves together and get healthy!
We have eaten much better and less fast food in the past month since we know exactly what we are having for dinner instead of having to scavenge around looking for something to make.
As we get our eating plan more smoothed out I can explain things more. Today was day one of planning out all 3 meals so I made a personal pan Dutch baby pancake and enjoyed half a grapefruit. My total calories was 364.
