Week 3 Prep>Wow! Look at you! Two weeks have gone by already. You’re more familiar with the tracker; you have a good idea of the number of calories you’re eating and how often you’re eating. You’re listening for (and paying attention to) your hunger cues. You’re also getting better at eyeballing serving sizes and gauging your portions.
What You’ll be Focusing on for Week 3
The focus for week 3 is on your carb, protein and fat percentages. You’ll learn what the acceptable percentages are — and you’ll set your daily percentage goals in the tracker.
At first, what you’ll be look for is whether you’re within your *daily* percentage goals at the end of each day. When you feel you have your daily percentage goals under control, you can focus on balancing out individual meals and snacks. This is optional, but can help you with your weight loss goals. Protein and fat can be filling and can help curb hunger and cravings. Try to eat protein and a bit of healthy fat with each meal and snack, if possible.
You may find that your percentages fluctuate wildly throughout the day. For example, if you have cereal and milk for breakfast, your carb percentages are going to be extremely high. Keep in mind that as you add in meals – especially meals with protein – things will balance out towards the end of the day. So, only compare your goal percentages to your actual percentages at the end of the day.
