Day Five

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

It has been five days since starting this lifestyle change and I have to say, I am far from being hungry.  It is hard to eat all the points I need.  Since most fruits and vegetables are 0 points, I have added them to day and feel great.

I do seem to have changed from two large meals a day to eating throughout the day.  Its close to eating a little bit every hour throughout the day.

I have lost about 1lb per day and the only time I felt really hungry was when I went food shopping for dinner and the smells in the store was drawing me in.  I did look up a few foods and their points, which were much higher than I wanted to use.  I fought the urge, which was strong :).  I made it back home and had an apple which took care of feeling hungry.

For dinner, I made Oven-Fried Coconut Shrimp with Orange-Chili Dipping Sauce with vegetables.  AMAZING!!!  It was about 5 points per serving and since it was too good, I did have two servings.  I was still left with about 15 points left for the day.

I am not a big seafood fan, but, I do have admit, this was amazing, there was no lack of flavor.  It was very easy to make and I will definitely make this many more times.
