According to science, I am somewhere between -3 and 26 lbs overweight. Since no one without a phd in literature can understand the instructions for determining “frame size,” I am considering myself a medium frame. I also have miniature wrists and the smallest neck of any adult man. Perhaps my frame may even be small.
I exercise a lot. So here I am, finally admitting that the only reason I am not yet gracing the cover of men’s health magazine is related to my diet.
I hope you’re ready internet, because I’m considering keeping a running food diary on my tumblr to hold myself accountable. To see if this is even possible, here’s my recreation of everything I have eaten since 6 am on Thursday morning.
Thursday (Pretty sure this was the healthiest day)
20 oz Iced coffee (Thanks Mayor Bloomberg!)
6 oz oatmeal from Whole Foods
4 mile run on treadmill. (Sweat rating 3.5 towels)
Salad with blackened chicken, whole wheat pita, rice, avocado, cucumber, sesame ginger dressing.
Beverage – Water
Chipotle Burrito Bowl (Picture is representative, but not accurate). Brown rice, black beans, Barbacoa (no clue what this is), hot salsa, corn salsa, a little cheese. (No guac or sour cream)
Beverage – water
Entire pint of this:
Corn muffin from a food cart parked outside my apartment
Two apple sauces – single serve size, not whole jars
Workout: One hour Vinyassa Yoga (image below), Jog 1.1 miles. (Sweat Rating: 3 towels)
Whole Foods Hot bar (Total Weight 1.29 lbs). Items included: Brown rice, Chicken Curry, Four pieces of Naan, One potato Samosa, Mexican Rice
Drink – Sparkling Mandarin Water
I cooked this. I added an extra half pound of the skirt steak because two of us were eating. Then I ate approximately one pound of skirt steak.
I also ate 170 blue corn chips with guacamole.
Beverage: Mandarin Orange Seltzer
Breakfast – onion bagel with lo-fat cream cheese from Zuckers
20 oz Iced Coffee.
Chicken Selects Meal from McDonalds (5 pc) (20 oz Coke) (Medium Fries)
Leftover dinner from last night (Serving Size – Medium)
20 more chips with guac
3ish Mile Run. Outdoors. Sweated my balloons off.
And that’s where I’m at. I think that I’m eating pretty healthily, so if anyone notices any issues or has suggestions for ways that I can cut down on unnecessary calories, I would love to hear them.
