Food Log

My post today is another adventure in my daily eats.

I don't know what's up, but for about a week my hunger has gone through the roof! About a month and a half ago I upped my calorie intake from 1500 calories per day to 1800 calories per day. Even with the added calories, I wake up at night to my stomach growling, and all throughout the day I can hardly go two hours without being hungry.

Any idea what's up? I'd love to have some advice!

Breakfast this morning was a little different.

I didn't add any fruit to my bowl of oats, so I added... cover your ears... splenda (I know... very bad. Tisk on me).

  • 30 grams oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (gelled overnight)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup egg whites 
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
Lunch was pretty plain-jane.

Just a piece of whole wheat toast with 3/4 tablespoon peanut butter, and a serving of 1% cottage cheese.

Snack 1 was a Muscle Cook's protein bar. LOVE these bars, even though they are pretty sticky. 

Snack 2 (consumed maybe an hour later) was leftover turkey meatballs. 

Supper was really good. Usually I get super sick of eating stir fries, but tonight's was awesome. 

  • 5 ounces chicken breast
  • 1 cup broccoli 
  • 1/3 cup green beans
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce 
Lastly, dessert

My sister has me hooked on greek yogurt and honey. Perfect combo! Eaten with this, Jamie Eason's carrot cake protein bars. 

All in all, 1,787 calories, 58g fat, 150g carbs, 177g protein. 

I have some exciting posts coming up! One of them is a guest post written by a trainer out of Seattle, and the other is my new workout cycle, Dane (the trainer from Seattle), has made for me. So stay tuned! 


  1. What's up is that your metabolism has finally kicked back up, and you need to increase even more! This happened to me and is still happening to me. I have a feeling your maintainence is 2000 or more, so up them girlie!

    Can't wait to hear those upcoming posts!

  2. I agree with April! It depends on your height and weight, but 1800 isn't enough for me to maintain - I eat around 2500 cals a day to gain muscle and 2200 to maintain. Food looks YUM. I made your turkey meatballs last night :) they'll be in my post tomorrow!

  3. oh my lanta (i think you know what thats about) shayna you should give me a call later today,i wanna talk to you about what im eating alrighty.

  4. For sweetener, I suggest using Stevia in the future! I really can't find any other natural (the most important part to me) zero calorie (also important) sweeteners out there! Good brands aren't bitter at all. :)
    I've noticed an increase in hunger myself. I've been gouging myself on fruits like papaya, pineapple, clementines, and apples, as well as eating half-ziplock bags full of baby carrots. I feel so much better when I have this, combined with some select meats. I work full time+ and go to college so I have loooong hours away from home, so I try and prepare food the night before.
