My Fit Foods 3 Day Challenge: Day 1

All of my meals and snacks for 3 Days

Day One went great!  I was surprised at how delicious the food was.  As usual, the night time was the hardest...that's when I want to snack.  My Fit Foods encourages you to eat every 2-3 hours.  I got off to a late start so some of my meals were closer together.  Three meals plus two snacks.  I stuck to that, but replaced one of their snacks with a yogurt because I felt I was eating too much.  I drank water at every meal and throughout the day, except at afternoon snack time I drank a Pellegrino Limonata and a cup of hot tea before bed.

I'm kicking myself for not taking more pictures so you can see the food, but when food is in front of me, taking a picture is that last thing on my mind.

My Review:  I thought the oatmeal was delicious.  I've read online reviews that people thought it was bland or slimey, but I loved it!  I even ate it cold like they suggested.  It reminded me of bread pudding.  My only complaint about it was the size.  It doesn't come in various portion options so I felt like it was a lot for me.  I actually didn't eat all of it for breakfast, but later in the day when I was feeling weak I finished it!  The lunch was AWESOME.  I would definitely buy again.  Dinner was also good, but I could have eaten much more.  It was a little spicy too which I loved!  My Fit Foods eliminates carbs at dinner, which of course is my weakness.  I really wanted some crackers to go with my chili, but I refrained.  One last complaint is that the apple slices both in my lunch and snack were VERY lemony.  I'm guessing they put lemon juice on them so they don't brown???  I'm sure I'll get used to it, but it really changed the taste of the apple.

  1. I'm not going to lie--I'm insanely jealous of your super-organized fridge there, lol. Even after years of eating well, it's still a hodgepodge of "what's in this container?" for me.

    If you're really committed to watching your points and keeping the weight off, you may want to work backwards a bit as well. I took a look back at a few of your older posts, and it seems there was a lot of stress in your life recently. Being able to handle that stress in a healthier way will ensure that your efforts to keep the weight off succeed. Take a look at the video in my link; it goes over our different human needs and what you can do to break bad eating patterns.

    Best of luck from this former Clear Lake resident! You can totally do this. :)

  2. Thanks Courtney! Trust me, it's only organized because we just moved in. You are so right that I gain weight during stressful times. I realize that in order to quit the yo-yo'ing of my weight I need to learn to deal with my stress in a healthier way...I just LOVE food so much! One day! thanks for the encouragement.
