Ok so I kept track of everything I ate yesterday and also all the different stuff I did while working. For breakfast at 9 30 am I had 2 Eggs, 1 english muffin, one 8 oz steak, 1 hashbrowns, 1 sixteen ounce tomato juice for a total of 1,114 calories then at around noon I had a 16 oz mocha 1/2 mocha 1/2 coffee with 4 crackers for 320 calories. Then supper at 3:45 was kentucky fried chicken 2 biscuits add honey and butter, 1 breast original, 1 drum stick original, 1 thigh original and a cole slaw and mashed with gravy for a total of 1500 calories. that is a grand total of 2,614 calories oh yeah add 5 soda crackers at 11:30 pm 60 calories 2,674 calories consumed in a 24 hour period. My day consisted of 10 hours sleeping, ten hours driving, and 2 hours walking/unloading in -20 weather and 2 hours miscellaneous which I called resting.
I plugged the activities into the calorie burning website http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/cbc I blogged about in my previous blog and came up with a grand total of 5,425 calories burned minus the 2674 calories eaten in the same 24 hour period = 2751 more calories burned than eaten. Wow! I basically Pigged out during my waking hours and still lost a lot of weight. One thing I love about this trucker diet is that the painful hunger part happens while you are sleeping so you dont have to be aware at all that you are even hungry.
As you can see this diet/life style is definitely not starvation mode! although keep in mind at this point I still weigh over 300 lbs this means I also burn more calories at any given activity, double the calories a person that weighs 150 lbs would burn. B
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
