Nutrition Vixen

My name is Melissa, and I am a 21 yr old aspiring nutritionist. Food is my undying passion, and I have made it my mission to discover all of the tastes that the world has to offer. Here is where you will find food I have eaten, food I want to eat, and food I will possibly never go near. Also found on this journal are recipes, health tips, and other (not so food related) rants to better your body and satisfy your taste buds!
Please assume all photos on my journal have been taken by me, unless I state otherwise.

A question for all of you…

If my diet were to consist of 90% negative calorie foods, would it technically be as if I ate next to nothing all day?

Yes NEGATIVE means to have less than x of something, however does it really work for your body to subtract calories from that 10% of eating anything I want?\

**YES, I know this wouldn’t be healthy in the long run**

Waking Wednesday!

For the first time in a long time, I have pre-calculated my calorie intake for tomorrow…

For a week, I will pre-plan my calories for each day and hopefully by the time the week is up, I’ll still want to continue.

Im excited because it begins with a big breakfast of:

-2 eggs once over easy

-1 slice of white toast (my parents refuse wholegrain)

-1 cup Wake-up Smoothie of Awesomeness

-1  8oz coffee

-1  8oz glass of water

I think the only reason I’m posting this is because I’m just excited to begin this challenge of keeping within my recommended calorie intake of 1200. I’m still 308 behind…
