Deprived of Nothing

I expected when I started this plan of personal health and fitness that it would result in me losing some of my favorite foods, but so far, nothing has really had to be ejected. I no longer indulge in carbonated beverages at all, and the only thing sweet I drink is 100% juice and the occasional cup of tea (usually for the caffeine later in the day). For dinner tonight I had what I consider to be a “bad” meal, spaghetti and meatballs. I enjoyed a serving of spaghetti (2 dry ounces), a serving of sauce (1/2 cup), and 2 meat balls for under 500 calories. The negatives of the meal would be the 170 calorie piece of garlic bread that I decided eat with my meal. After the meal I ate a small slice of birthday icecream cake (122 grams) for a little over 200 calories, simply because I craved something cold and sweet. I don’t like that I consumed so many sugars, but I suppose occasionally I am allowed to indulge a little. I am still under 1500 calories for the day and quite full from dinner still.
Next week when I start trying to eat 5 – 6 small meals per day, these big meals will be a thing of the past, but I am trying to go into that fairly slowly. I will also be working on keeping my carbohydrates, proteins and fats in balance more.
