Did you know that a 200-calorie snack could range from 3-6 points depending on the fiber and fat content? I recently stumbled upon wisegeek.com where they have posted pictures of what 200 calories looks like. It’s fascinating to see the difference in volume. They start with “heaviest” 200 calories (1425 grams of celery) to the “lightest” (23 grams of oil) I’ve always said I liked to eat so I’m looking for foods that give me the biggest bang for the buck, if you know what I mean. The more fiber and less fat the better for shear amount and this site gives you an interesting look at that.
As for today, I did much better then yesterday. I still ate out for lunch but at least I got my workout in. I’m proud of myself. I did not really want to do it but I forced myself to get started. Then afterwards I felt great and still do
