Chef on a Diet: Day 1

With my last weekend of decadence behind me, I am excited to start Day 1 of my resolution to lose it! Since Mondays are such a long day, I’ve decided to try to eat 6 times today.  I have planned out my meals so I know exactly what I need to eat and when to eat it so I’ll be less likely to cheat:

Greek Yogurt & Berries: 120 cals, which I already ate at 2:45 am!

Breakfast Panini (w/egg, Canadian bacon, & fat-free cheese): 340 cals.  I am planning on eating half at 6:00 am and half at 9:00 am.

Guiltless Turkey Nachos: 340 cals. This will comprise lunch at 12:00 pm.

Apples & Cinnamon Zabaglione: 120 cals. This will be my snack at 3:00 pm.

Parmesan-Crusted Salmon w/ Italian Brown Rice & Roasted Ratatouille: 380 cals. This will be dinner, eaten between 6:00 & 6:30 pm.

Lots of water & green tea too.  No wine w/dinner tonight and no calories from beverages. I am right at the 1,300 calorie limit I set for myself, so I cannot have anything additional and need to stick to my portion sizes. But this is a lot more food than I usually eat with a lot less calories, so I am not worried!
