Yay! I’m allowed to eat more!

Just been to the dietitian, and guess what: I’ve been eating too little 😛

I send her what I eat on a regular day, and she calculated the calories, vitamins, minerals, everything. A normal day is about 1400 calories for me, while a bit more (somewhere between 1500 and 1700) would be better. So now I’ll try to eat a ‘heavier’ snack in between meals, since I tend to go hungry around 4pm, between lunch and dinner. And I have to drink a glass of milk (or something similar) daily, because I’m not getting enough calcium. And a bit too little magnesium, and iron and selenium and zinc, and vitamin A, D, E, B1, B6, B12, folium-acid… So she also advised me to take multivitamins, so I’ll buy those this week. They may also help me getting less tired, or at least I hope so.

Anyway, I’m doing fine, according to her, so I’m just going on in the way I was going. This was my second and last visit to see the dietitian, since I don’t think I can learn much from her about healthy eating: I knew most of it already. Although she said I can always e-mail her if I have a question, or just to tell her how I’m doing. That’s a comforting thought.
