Is it ok to eat almonds instead of lunch?
HELP, I didn't have any food at home to cook, I don't know any place around work where I can eat Slow Carb foods aside from Chipotle, plus looks like I probably will not be able to step away from the office! I packed a little bag with like a cup of almonds sprinkled with cinnamon and stevia...will this be enough for lunch?
The Best Answer
Also, though you probably don't need anyone telling you this, use this as a lesson to prepare in advance. Either like I do -where I make all my meals in advance, or, just having some things in your desk at work. I have a few 80 calorie packs of Tuna in water, almonds, etc. Also -though I prefer the tuna packs, you can also buy single serving protein packets too. All can sit in your desk at work for just such an emergency.
I think it is OK(as long as you don't down like 20....probably more like 10 at most), but you should really plan out your meals and make them ahead of time so you aren't caught in a problem like this. Why do you need stevia on your almonds? O_o Just eat them plain. You SHOULD, as soon as you can, get to a Chipotle and get a better choice in meal in you before you go cheat on a bagel or a cupcake.
I am of same height and weight as yours. Being a vegetarian (I am having eggs these days) i don't have many sources of protein. As tim says " You should eat 20gm of protein within 30 minutes after you wake up in the morning". So i eat 2 eggs omelette + 5 almonds.
You can have them as a meal replacement (Maximum 10).
PS: i also want to loose 20lbs!! Started from today!
