Always Hungry? NOT!

The Always Hungry? plan is back effect, with a few modifications.  I’ll  admit to my “oops” which was not because I was hungry! I just wasn’t thinking–good food, good company, open mouth, insert food.

My continued  issue is that there’s too much food on the meal plans for what I usually eat and my usual level of activity–I typically don’t “do” snacks”. Perhaps now that the weather is improving, but not yet sweltering, I can get more active.

The other difficulty for me is breakfast. Not only am I not at my peak function first thing in the morning, I just don’t want food.  I love breakfast food–eggs, omelettes, and the like–but just not in the morning. Perhaps as I manage to get off by butt and increase my activity I’ll eat more from the meal plan set out for this program.

For right now, brunch is a concept that fits well with my desire for foods. But, brunch interferes with snacks, so I’m using the snacks as “lunch” and having brunch, or I’m using the Power Shake for Phase 1 as breakfast, and lunch and dinner from the meal plan.

It sounds as if I’m really mucking this around, but I’m being very conscious of the appropriate balance of macronutrients for this phase: protein 25%, carbohydrates 25%, and fat 50%.  Despite my changes and that “slip”, it’s working!
