So this is the third and final post from today's Fill adventure.
As I mentioned earlier, I got 1 more cc in the band.. and since I had some sissy foods with me at work (liquid protein drink, cottage cheese and yogurt), I was going to wait until this evening to see if food with a bit more substance would challenge my feeling of restriction.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE:
Uh. no difference.
I had two mini baby bell light cheese thingy's, 2 oz white chicken breast and salad. and uh.. I probably could eat more, but stopped. I must have a friggin wooden leg attached to my band.. I know you are all going to tell me that it could take a day or two for the restriction to kick in... I will be patient..
On another note: During my office visit I met with my nutritionist and we had an interesting discussion about my food intake.. I shared my whole approach with managing and counting and tracking everything on MyDailyPlate.com I explained I was targeting to take in no more than 1200 calories, 25-30 g of fat and monitor carbs.
Well she pulled out a magic chart and gave me this low down.. my total daily calories should not be more than 900 calories (WTF).. I might as well suck on lettuce leaves all day.. no more than a total of 30 fat grams
I was quite irritated to hear about the low calorie allowance (but that is what it is for my height 64" and age) and no I am not an honorary old fart just yet..
She did provide me with two sheets on smart snacks and how to get in Bites of Protein.. I tried to scan and attach to my post but that didn't work.. but I can send it to you if you want send me your email address.
