Day 2 was about learning how to make a FAT LOSS PLATE. So pretty much it teaches you how to make a well-balanced, small portion meal. I know to some people this is like common sense, but the way they explain it helps me really understand how and why it works. In summary, a fat loss meal have PROTEIN, FAST CARBS (foods that digest fast) and SLOW CARBS (foods that digest slow). The reason being is to make sure that you have a consistent amount of glucose so that your body have enough to burn (as normal) but not enough to store. FAT BURNING MODE!!!
Today’s thing to do was to have one meal that is a FAT LOSS PLATE. I wasn’t as prepared as I want to be but tried my very best anyways. I had Chicken Katsu for lunch (from the office cafe), and it came with white rice and salad. So just like the plan showed me, I portioned everything appropriately. I ate half of the chicken because well everything here is portioned BIG, 1/3 of the white rice, and all of the salad. It was yummy and I after I ate it, I didn’t feel FOOD COMA. Probably because I didn’t eat the whole thing like I usually do. I felt energetic and didn’t feel the need to take a nap (like I usually do).
My mess up was after work. I had errands to run and I wasn’t prepared for food (dinner and snacks). So I got so hungry and just ate, I don’t even remember when. I just ate junk. I know I can do much better. Making a grocery list right now and hopefully I can run to the store later. I’m getting excited!
That’s it for now.
