Upon looking in the mirror today, I realized I just didn't look right. I am back up to 169 lbs. (about 5'9") and it's obviously not a healthy weight.
So yeah, here it goes.
Starting weight: 169lbs.
Food for 3/4/10
-3 eggs, scrambled, pepper and salt
-1 slice multigrain toast w/unsalted peanut butter
-Pack of Hostess chocolate donettes
-Peanut butter and jelly w/ bag of Fritos (one of the "small" 99 cent bags)
-Half of a tuna melt w/cheddar cheese
-Five Guys french fries, regular size (I had about half of them)
-Can of Wolfgang Puck chicken & wild rice soup
sigh... except for sfields comment about quality over quantity I really dont understand the whole dieting thingy. From what I know about your life is that youre a student and a guvmint deskjockey, so you hardly do any (physical) labor to speak of, which means that all that food you listed isnt nessecary.
Same type of list, but my suggestion:
Breakfast : one egg, slice of toast with cheese, glass of orange juice.
lunch : small ham and cheese sandwich
dinner : whatever you fancy, be it more whole foods (no fastfood)
and stop the snacks in between. For drinks coffee or tea would be fine, limit your amounts of softdrinks and just order some water with your lunch..
