Year in Review

Some interesting stats for those wanting to know what I do to maintain ideal weight after the age of 40:

  • Age: 45
  • BMI: 20 (5'7", 130 pounds)
  • Number of hours watching TV per week: 0
  • Number of hours exercising per week: 16-20
  • Meals eaten out per week: 1-2

Yesterday's food log:

  • Breakfast: 1 bowl oatmeal with raisins and skim milk, fat-free latte coffee
  • AM snack: 1 light nonfat yogurt with fat-free whipped cream dollop on top
  • Lunch: Low-fat tuna sandwich on whole wheat bread
  • PM snack: Apple, 2 small slices low-fat, low-sodium, home-made whole wheat pizza, handful chocolate chips
  • Dinner: Roasted 1/4 chicken breast (2 ounces), large low-fat salad with balsamic vinegar, low-fat mashed potatoes with skin, steamed broccoli
  • PM snack: Grapenuts cereal, raisins, skim milk

That is 5 ounces whole grains, 3 cups skim milk/milk equivalent, 2 cups fruit, 5 ounces meat/bean servings, 4 cups vegetables - all meals prepared at home.
