Full Day of Eating: week 4 of the reverse diet

Reading Time: 4 minutes

I get asked all the time what I eat, how much, what are my macros. My response is usually “have you looked at my Instagram page? I post tons of food pictures!” My second response is “whatever fits my macros.” My third answer is usually “I don’t share my numbers because they’re not going to work for you and I don’t need to be judged on how much or how little other people think I’m eating. I’m not starving, thanks.”

Well, maybe this post will give you an idea of how flexible I am with my food in a given day. So this is everything I’m eating. It’s Waffle Wednesday and I have some tasty things planned for myself, at least I think I do.

Again, please keep in mind I am reversing to maintenance still. While I was initially reversing after cometition the first of May, macros were adjusted for zero activity/appetite during my initial recovery after surgery. I have been reversing for 3.5 weeks at this point and because last week was such a crazy week with the move I asked to keep my macros the same and see how I handle the nutrition before increasing again. 

This post is to give people an idea of how flexible I am with my nutrition plan, it is not an opportunity to tell me to eat more or less or differently. We all have different eating style and this works for me as you can see from my results.
