I was told to always eat your 500 calories, that if you eat less it will hurt you in the long run. However, I am having the hardest time reaching the 500 calorie mark working with the guidelines my Doctor gave me.
I have 100g of meat twice a day (only allowed beef twice a week)
1 melba toast
What can i add more of to reach my 500calorie goal?
I am literally at least 50 calories away each day if not more. Can I eat more chicken or fish to give me more calories? I have noticed that ever time i eat beef and i get my 500 calories in my body does better than if i only reach 450.
You can add Light soups, 1 medium orange, wheat crackers to you diet. Also Coffee (black,0 cals) (with fat-free creamer, 35 cals. trust me I'd rather have it with tons of cream and sugar but you can add LOTS of calories that way so I just got used to drinking it black OR with a very small amount fat free creamer (35 cals). NO sugar. WATER as much as possible.
Adding extra fruits and starches can hinder and stall your weight loss.
Also, fat free creamer IS NOT allowed as it has artificial sweeteners and chemicals in it that can not only stall weight loss, but make it difficult to stabilize when you reach maintenance.
The only allowed foods on Dr Simeons protocol are as listed:
Meats (100g weighed RAW):
Beef (steak, extra lean ground beef, roast)
White Fish (sole, flounder, sea bass, orange roughy, etc)
