today marks approximately the end of my second week on my first BFL challenge. i have been doing well with all of the workouts and planning/eating 6 balanced meals a day.
however, i've been having a bit of a problem with slight off schedule, unbalanced snacking...mostly between my 4th meal and 5th (dinner with my family). it's never anything much - a handful of blueberries or a couple of carrots, but it makes me feel like i'm doing something horrible, and it makes me feel guilty. i don't feel deprived eating the BFL way at ALL but it is so difficult for me to stop munching randomly during this time.
is this a really bad thing? will it prevent me from getting the results i'm after? does anyone have any techniques to prevent this kind of slipping?
First let me say throw out the guilt. Its not healthy and won't get you to your goal. I am sure there are many answers to your question, but I would look at the amount you are eating in meals 3 and 4, maybe your calorie intake is not enough and you are needing more. Another thought is that plan that snacking into your program, so if its a carb, then reduce your carb in meal 5 or 6. Just make sure you are balanced and take time to look at your meals. You may just not be getting enough.
