Healthy Eating Math Example

Last week, we talked about reducing "eating healthy" to simple math and how to calculate your healthy eating "report card".

This week, I'm going to show you everything I ate the week for a week and grade each day, then use the healthy eating math we discussed in the last post to grade my week.

Sunday

  • Breakfast: Eggs & spinach = 1 healthy meal
  • Lunch: Protein shake, greek yogurt, celery + peanut butter = 1 healthy meal
  • Dinner: Beef chuck roast + edamame + glass of wine = 1 healthy meal
  • Total: 3/3

Monday

  • Breakfast: Eggs & spinach = 1 healthy meal
  • Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with walnuts, EVOO, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes = 1 healthy meal
  • Dinner: Beef chuck roast + sweet potato + spinach + glass of wine = 1 healthy meal
  • Total: 3/3

Tuesday

  • Breakfast: Eggs & spinach = 1 healthy meal
  • Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with walnuts, EVOO, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, and avocado = 1 healthy meal
  • Dinner: Beef chuck roast + organic black beans + squash + glass of wine = 1 healthy meal
  • Total: 3/3

Wednesday

  • Breakfast: Eggs & spinach = 1 healthy meal
  • Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with walnuts, EVOO, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, and avocado = 1 healthy meal
  • Dinner: Pork shoulder + red lentils = 1 healthy meal

  • Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with walnuts, EVOO, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, and avocado = 1 healthy meal
  • Dinner: Pork shoulder + Kroger fiesta style vegetables = 1 healthy meal
  • Total: 3/3

Saturday

  • Breakfast: Eggs & spinach = 1 healthy meal
  • Lunch: Pork shoulder + broccoli + chick fil a tenders + chips & queso = 1 UNHEALTHY meal
  • Dinner: Dinner w/family at El Nopal = 1 UNHEALTHY meal
  • Total: 1/3

Conclusion

I earned a "B" for the week. 18 out of 21 meals were what I consider healthy meals. Notice that I was able to go out to eat twice, and eat junk while watching football with friends on Saturday, and still earn a solid grade for the week.

Read this post a few times and see if you notice some trends.
