I have dug out the details on the different metabolic eating types and I re-did the questionaire. (This is the work of Paul Chek and William Wollcott, for anyone who wants to Google.)
I am a "mixed" type. Definately.
However, I have always been advised to eat to a protein type, as this is a faster way to lose weight.
Problem is, I find it virtually impossible to stick to a protein type diet, even in the short term.
So it is only actually faster if you can actually stick to it. Which I can't.
(The thought of all those effing egg whites again and all that tuna.....no no no no no. It makes me want to run and hide in a can of Pringles.)
SO, I am going to eat as a mixed type. I am going to stay true to type.
The deal with food, for me, then, is this:
1200 Calories per day
This is made up of:
Which equates to:
13.3g of fat only
I have reset my Calorie King to reflect this.
(Interestingly it is the first time I have been into Calorie King for what feels like forever. I last recorded my weight on there last November: 6 months ago. I have maintained my weight since then. Phew)
I have pre-planned todays food and tracked it already.
I need to up my daily water guzzling habits.
