My dining diary


My nutritionist told me that if I stick to 1,600 calories a day, I should lose weight. Curious what that number translates to food-wise? Here's what a typical day looks like for me: 

  • Breakfast: ½ cup oatmeal mixed with 1 cup skim milk, ¼ cup raw almonds, ½ cup blueberries, 1 tablespoon flaxseed, and cinnamon; coffee with skim milk (530 calories)
  • Lunch: A salad of mixed greens, cucumber, tomato, 4 olives, reduced-fat Feta cheese, 6 ounces grilled chicken, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and a squeeze of lemon juice (390 calories)
  • Afternoon snack: 1 apple with 1 tablespoon peanut butter or a skim latte (180 calories)
  • Dinner: Tilapia with Old Bay seasoning and olive oil, green beans, and a sweet potato (295 calories)
  • Nighttime snack: 1 cup each nonfat cottage cheese and sliced fresh strawberries (205 calories)
