ETA: I ask because if I’m eating almost the same thing every day, but there’s something wrong with what I’m eating nutritionally speaking, then I’m causing myself problems even if I “lose weight.”)
Breakfast: Apple or banana, plus twenty almonds (sweetened with cinnamon and sucralose)
Second breakfast: Apple or banana, plus twenty almonds as above
Lunch: Half cup of rice plus quarter cup of chicken in some Indian based sauce. (Varies between vindaloo, tikka masala, and others.) OR palak paneer, cup and a half (I think), no naan
Midafternoon snack: hummus and veggies, usually carrots, sometimes celery, broccoli or cauliflower
Dinner: Could be anything. Shrink the portion, add a small salad. (This makes it hard to evaluate the day nutritionally, I know.)
After dinner: either hummus and veggies, or another small salad.
Note: I do not use “diet” salad dressings, but I use only half a tablespoon or so of what I do eat. Ranges from various Vinegraites to Blue Cheese or Caesar–so hard to count calories here, but like I said, it’s just half a tablespoon or so. Also, I add some shreded parmesan usually.
So anyway, I’ve lost ten pounds, but my question is, am I harming myself, or does this appear healthy to you?
I’m trying to follow the rule I read somewhere: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. I add my own rule–avoid bread (but not like it’s poison), as I am sedentary and I am given to understand that bread is pretty bad if you don’t exercise.
