Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
I met with the RDN that is on staff at my doctor's office. We met for an hour and I have to eat fewer carbs and no desserts......well, duh! I could have told myself that!
She went over my eating habits and had me list what foods I like. Ummmm....I like all food! That's my problem!
She limited my carb intake to 30 - 45 grams per meal. I'm also supposed to limit foods high in saturated fats and trans fats and limit the amount of cholesterol that I eat to less than 200 milligrams per day. One egg yolk has about 212 mg of cholesterol, but it also has no carbs. So you see my dilemma, right??
I guess what I want is a quick fix. I want someone to tell me EXACTLY what I should eat for Breakfast, Lunch and Supper. Don't tell me to limit my carbs to 30-45 grams per meal. Don't tell me to limit foods high in saturated fats. TELL ME WHAT I CAN EAT!!!
Make a list of foods that I can have for breakfast, lunch and supper. Even better, make those foods for me, because I think that's the only way I am going to win at this! I need a personal chef! I need that chef to make my meals for me. The personal chef can come over once a week and plan and cook all my meals for me for the week. That way I don't have to figure out how many carbs are in that doughnut I just ate, because I won't be eating doughnuts unless my personal chef has made them for me!!!
Losing weight can't be this difficult, can it??? There has to be an easier way to do this.
If anyone has the secret, please share it with me, because this is driving me crazy!!
Stay tuned. I'm not giving up. Just changing directions!
