This week’s challenge was to Eat Healthy Fats.
Lyn from Escape from Obesity (the blog where I got my Weekly Challenges) mentions that even good fats will make you gain weight if you eat too much of them. The challenge is to substitute healthy fats for bad fats.
Here is a list taken from Lyn’s blog.
Bad Fats (trans fats, saturated fats, and cholesterol):
red meat, poultry, eggs
butter, whole milk, cheese
coconut oil, palm oil (in processed foods)
shortening, lard, margarine
many processed crackers, cookies, fried foods (read labels!)
Good Fats (monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and omega-3’s):
olive oil, peanut oil, canola oil
nuts (especially walnuts!)
flax seeds (ground), soybeans
salmon, halibut, tuna, or fish oil capsules
This week’s weigh in: 67.6kg / 149lbs (+0.2kg)
Can I just mention how frustrating it is not to lose weight?????
Honestly speaking, my heath is crappy right now because of what I eat. I have an induction cooker, which is VERY hard for me to cook on because I am used to gas. The quality of vegetables and fruit that I can get in stores is really not very good.
I need more vegetables!! Actually, I need food with love, instead of the crappy stuff I’m eating!! I just don’t know what to do. I feel sick if I eat certain things, and I’m losing the motivation to cook, or to eat, for that matter!
I eat a piece of bread for lunch because I cannot stomach the food at work – very greasy, very spicy, and I cannot bring food to work. I eat very little except for when I go out to eat, because food just doesn’t taste good anymore. And this is coming from someone who loves to eat! I don’t go out to eat because I want to get home, get on my Wii Fit, and get to sleep. My dinner is usually something like some rice with natto! Yes, I know it’s too many carbs, but I really, really have lost the motivation to prepare food.
How can I get back to eating healthy? Food just doesn’t have any appeal to me anymore… and still, I’m not losing weight!
