I finished the 6 weeks of the Bodysmart Diet last week and basically gorged this week! I think just knowing no one was looking at my data anymore meant I ate everything in sight.
So today I went through my data and also did some research online.
My new goal is to reduce my fat intake and increase my protein intake. I am looking for a profile that looks like this:
- 20% Fat
- 50% Carbohydrates
- 30% Protein
- Maximum of 5% Alcohol (minuses from Fat and Protein)
My profile for the last 6 weeks has looked like this:
- 36% Fat
- 48% Carbohydrates
- 14% Protein
- 2% Alcohol
I looked at my data in more detail to work out where all the fat was coming from and found it is mainly from processed foods such as:
- Shop bought sandwiches
- Ice Cream
- Take away food
I do have quite a few good sources of fat in my diet too, like:
I just need to get rid or keep limited the processed fats and keep the good fats.
To do this I am going to go cold turkey on processed foods for the rest of April. From today that is 17 days. I thought this is a good amount of time to go fully cold turkey to get out of some bad habits that are creeping back into my diet, in terms of chocolate and ice cream. Once April is over I will then decide on good quality processed foods like Green and Blacks Chocolate to bring back into my diet as an occasional treat.
My focus is whole foods and good sources of protein and fat. I want to get rid of the crap as it makes me feel crap. I want to treat my body well so it treats me well 🙂
