Okay girls…I don’t know if you are will like what I’m about to say (or type, for that matter): After careful thought, I have decided to do away with mentioning the calories of everything I eat on this blog. Now, before you swear at the computer and delete this site from your favorite list, let me explain my motives.
1. I want this blog to move away from the “diet blog” category and move into the “healthy lifestyle” category. I don’t think counting calories is what we need to be doing in this day and age. I think instead we need to be focusing on eating nutritional meals that give our bodies energy and life. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains…..the things that sustain us and nourish us.
2. It’s just plain hard on me! I love this blog so much but its difficult for me to compute every calorie of what I eat to show you guys. I also find it restricting for myself because to do this, I was planning out my meals ahead of time and computing the calories…but then what if I didn’t feel like eating that anymore and didn’t have enough time to sit down and do the math? I would feel bad.
3. In the words of the author of the bestselling book “Skinny Bitch”—-“Counting calories is so 1989”
I think you all have the idea now of how many calories my meals usually are. In general my breakfasts are anywhere from 350-480. Morning snack is usually about 120. Lunch is around 400. Afternoon snack is 150-220. Dinner is usually 450-500 and dessert is anywhere from 150-300 depending on the intensity of my sweet tooth! You won’t see me ever cook any “1000 calorie” meals and if you ever have a question, PLEASE feel free to ask me and I will do my best to do some quick math and let you know. I hope this is okay with you all…I know a lot of you were adamant about losing the calorie count but I feel strongly that really shouldn’t be the focus here. There are plenty of outstanding calorie counting blogs out there as well as weight loss and diet blogs you can refer to for all your calorie-counting needs!
Thank you for your understanding! 🙂
oh and ps- I conveniently failed to mention calories for my last 2 meals and not one person has commented on the fact! No one seemed to even notice…..hmmm…..
