How has your meal composition changed?

Post by Thisisnotabadidea- » Tue Aug 13, 2019 1:01 pm

This is something I've been thinking about recently. My meals are...way different now that I don't snack. I obviously eat more at one time now, I eat at least a main and 2-3 sides for EACH meal. Sometimes having a sandwhich and several pieces of fruit with a salad and something fun like dark chocolate. It looks like more than I've EVER ate but I'm solidly maintaining. Plus the nutrients, I make a lot of effort to eat protein, vegtables/fruits and a whole carb every single meal. I find it satied me a lot, I'd use to just eat some grapes and then wonder why I was still hungry :roll: .

I also find that I mix together things I'd never when dieting, Cereal with toast for example.

Gradually, over the past 6 years - I eat more fat and veggies. I eat fewer refined carbs. Surprisingly, protein has remained stable (I actually had this confirmed with various kidney function testing). I eat 1g protein/kg body weight. Most people probably would never have these values precisely measured like I have, so I think this is pretty cool info to have.
