Cleanse Day 17

I’m typically not a calorie counter since I try my best to eat when I’m hungry, get a variety of foods in my diet and not eat when I’m not hungry. I figure that in the end, if I can stick to those principals and stay active, things will all net out to a healthy level.

However, since my eating patterns are a little different on the cleanse, I was interested to track my calories for a day and see where I was netting out. My daily total (1,855 calories) was about what I expected. Although I have cut out items like cheese, yogurt, eggs and butter, I’ve made up for the lost calories in other was, with nuts, smoothies, vegan butter and veggies.

Here’s a look at the day’s eats…

1/3 cup rolled oats made with water, cinnamon and stevia (125 cal)
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (200 cal)
