I bet you probably never asked yourself that question in the title. How many calories do you think frying adds to the food? W
Well, I fell in to that rabbit hole of a google search today trying to figure out how many calories I just consumed after making and eating my copycat Chic-Fil-A Nuggets with Potato Wedges.
I basically found out that nobody really knows, and that they are basically educated guesses. They say it depends on how porous the food is…no duh. It also depends on the oil…no duh. Some people say calories double…triple…quadruple. There’s basically no concrete answer or way to really know is what I got out of the research I looked at.
My critically thinking would be…
1.) Measure the amount of oil you put in the pan.
2.) After frying the food, measure how much oil is left. Then, divide those oil calories in to however many pieces of whatever you have to get an approximate answer. Then add that to the normal calories of the food item.
That’s just me though.
And yes..I know, I know…it’s so unhealthy. How is this even a “weightloss diet?” I said this before and I said it again, just as long as youre burning calories and eating at a deficit, you will lose weight .
I am not a dietician or personal trainer. It’s just science and biology or whatever.
Just like yesterday, I had another day of not so good eating. I ate foods that I didn’t really know the calories for and guesstimated. I felt like I overestimated today but not too sure about today. I feel like I may have underestimated.
You tell me…
Breakfast: Skipped it, because I wasn’t hungry. I don’t believe in forcing breakfast or any meal if you are not hungry. (Just as long as you aren’t doing this multiple meals in a row and basically starving yourself.)
Lunch: TurkeyRoniLami Wrap
Snack: Oats n Dark Chocolate Granola Bar and Almond Milk
Dinner: Copycat Chic-Fil-A Nuggets and Homemade Potato Wedges
Dessert: Trader Joe’s Sedimentary Cookie and Almond Milk
Ok, so that sums up what I ate today to lose weight by eating in a deficit. If the estimations are right, which they are not…Here are my estimated calories:
What I learned about losing weight on Week 1 of this blogging challenge:
1.) I need to buy batteries for my food scale so I can stop being so hard on myself and stressing over if I’m eating too much or too little.
2.) I need to limit my sugar intake, even when it comes to healthy sugars like fruit, granola, yogurt, protein, smoothies, etc.
3.) I need to be more prepared with healthy snacks and a couple extra meals made. ( I can’t stand meal prepped food..I guess I am just Boujee and like my meals fresh 😂)
4.) I need to up my micro nutrients and protein intake.
I hope you enjoyed my first week of this blogging challenge.
