What I Eat In A Day For Weight Loss (1530 calories)

I have always been on the thicker side. When I was younger, I would’ve been considered chubby. But since then, I’ve lost a good amount of weight and would now be considered thick; I’ve got some extra meat on me but I’m not necessarily chunky. But I don’t want to be. I feel so uncomfortable with with carrying around my extra weight. So after taking a few months off from weight loss, I’ve decided to start it back up again. My goal is to lose at least 20 pounds and maybe even more. It all depends on how I feel at that point. I know it’ll be a process and probably something that I’ll have to stick with even into the winter months. But either way, it’s something that I want to get done. It’s been a month of me eating at a calorie deficit so I just wanted to share with you guys what I’ve been eating. Maybe it’ll help to give you some inspiration if you’re getting bored with the foods you’re eating. I’ve been switching it up all the time though (just because there’s such a wide variety of foods I want to eat) so I think I may include one of these “What I Eat In A Day” posts at least once a month. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

Breakfast🍳

For this day, I decided to have one of my favorite meals. This is my own version of a breakfast burrito (I know it’s not rolled up like one, but you get the point). You may not like the way I do it so feel free to make any changes to yours that you wish. This is how I made mine:

  • whole wheat tortilla (110 cals.)
  • 1 tbsp. mayo (90 cals.)
  • 2 sunny side eggs (140 cals.)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (110 cals.)
  • 1/2 an avocado, or 60g (100 cals.)
  • 2 tbsp. Trader Joes Cowboy Caviar, corn salsa (25 cals.)
  • 5 Bread and butter pickle chips, sweet (20 cals.)
    • Total 598 Calories

Snack Time

Next, I was feeling the need for something sweet. I wasn’t necessarily hungry but I just wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth. For me, one of the best things for that is hot chocolate😋 I made mine all fancy just for you guys so it could be more aesthetically pleasing, so enjoy😄 For this fancy hot chocolate of mine you’ll need:

  • Hot Cocoa Packet (I used a Target brand) (110 cals.)
  • 6 oz. Almond milk (30 cals.)
  • Whipped Cream (45 cals)
    • Total: 185 calories

While I was drinking my hot chocolate, I felt like it needed something more. It felt empty and incomplete. So I decided to pair it with a chocolate chip cookie and that hit the spot😋

  • 1 Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie (170 cals.)
    • Total: 170 calories

Dinner🥗

I know what you’re thinking “wait, no lunch?” and the answer is no. I just wasn’t hungry on this day come lunch time. Normally I eat my breakfast at around 8am and that keeps me full till 2pm on average. So come dinner time, I may just eat something light or I’ll wait till it’s 7pm or 8pm to eat again. I’m not restricting myself by any means. I still get the same amount of calories in. But just some days I’m not as hungry. So for this dinner I decided to have:

  • 1 cup Kale Salad Mix (140 cals.)
  • 1 Italian Sausage link (180 cals.)
  • 1 up Sweet Potatoes (114 cals.)
  • 1/4 Avocado (50 cals.)
    • Total: 484 Calories

That completes my full day of eating. Like I said, everyday is a bit different with what I eat but at the end of the day I make sure I’m still at the same calorie deficit. I’m looking forward to when I can start sharing with you guys my results. Let me know what you guys thought of this article. Is it one that you would want me to recreate in the future (with different meals of course)? And please keep in mind that our calorie needs are all different depending on our lifestyle and our goals. So please make sure you eat the right amount for yourself. I hope you guys have a good day and that you enjoyed today’s read.

Until next time,

Paula🦋
