started dieting on May 15, 2020. Welcome to day 58 of my weight loss journey. I started the Beck Diet by Dr. Judith S. Beck on day 45. I skipped ahead and am now on day 24.

I developed a plan to manage my calorie intake. Yesterday was the first trial. Allowing the calories from one meal to carry over led me to end up at about the same calories consumed by the end of the day as I had in the previous days. Today, I am not going to let snack calories roll over to meal calories. That is, snack calories must be within the range of 0 – 100 (500 cumulative calories). Meal calories must be within the range of 0 – 500 (1,500 cumulative calories). Here’s how it breaks down for a 2,000 calorie day (it will be adjusted today because I woke up late this morning):

  • Breakfast – 500 calories
  • 2 hours later, Snack – 100 calories
  • 2 hours later, Snack – 100 calories
  • 2 hours later, Lunch – 500 calories
  • 2 hours later, Snack – 100 calories
  • 2 hours later, Snack – 100 calories
  • 2 hours later, Dinner – 500 calories
  • 2 hours later, Snack – 100 calories
  • 2 hours later, Bedtime Snack – 100 calories
    Sleep 8 hours.

My Daily Food Diary – Day (58) 24

Current Weigh In: As of Saturday, July 11, I weighed in at 249 pounds – one pound less than the weight I was after finding out I was misreading my scale. I have lost 5 pounds and gained 4 pounds since beginning the Beck diet. My next weigh in is Saturday, July 18th.
