What I Eat in a Day

Our food and daily nutrition is an essential component to our overall health. Eating well and eating a balanced diet makes me feel healthy and bonus, keeps my skin clear and glowy! It's important to note that I don't like to deprive myself of anything or 'cut foods out', so to say. I believe in an everything in moderation approach. A great way to explain this would be the 80/20 rule. Meaning 80% of the time I eat healthy, whole foods and lean meats and the other 20% of the time is dedicated toward 'fun foods' like wine and ramen (two of my faves).

In a day I like to stick to 1400-1600 calories right now as I am in a calorie deficit working to release another 5-10 pounds. I break those calories down into macro-nutrient goals as follows; 88g Protein, 156g Carbs and 46g Fat. A day in the life of Kayla's eating looks a little something like this...
