This chart shows that I am right on the mark when it comes to breaking down what I eat into the 3 categories: protein, fat, and the dreaded carbohydrate. I am proud of this fact.
What this chart doesn't show is the number of calories I consumed: 2,046.
I have to cast shade on my important achievement by exclaiming, "Darn it! Why can't I do BOTH? Why can't I achieve the much desired nutritional breakdown of protein, fat, and carbohydrates while eating 1,500 calories?"
More importantly, why do I put down myself when I achieved something very important? In fact, given my extraordinary size, I need 2,800 calories to maintain my size, so I have a nice deficit of 750 calories which, over the course of a week, is 1.5 pounds lost. But I don't focus on that. I focus on the fact I could have done both and lost 550 extra calories, which, over the course of a week, is over an extra pound lost.
NO! I won't do the, "Yeah, but..." game! Today, I will focus on my nutritional achievement instead of the number of calories eaten.
