WAM 10 details and standards.

Step 1: Weigh yourself at the gym on the dr. scale and let Aimee know that number (these numbers (pre/post) will be kept confidential, but might be used in the case of a tie breaker)

Step 2: Zone and Weigh and Measure for 10 days and record your food choices and amount consumed.

Step 3: Turn in your journal to Aimee by 9PM on 10/14.

Judging will first be based on your ability to weigh and measure. If we need to take it to the next level we will look at the food choices you make. For example the hierarchy will look like this.

WaM Zone
WaM Zone with no grains
WaM Zone with no grains, no dairy
WaM Zone with no grains, no dairy, no alcohol

We will also look at weight lost over the 10 days.

What did everyone have for breakfast?
What are you having for lunch?

I had eggs, oatmeal and almonds.
For lunch I'm having a cheeseburger on a salad with a cucumber, carrots and guacamole. And some fruit for dessert. I feel like a veggie eating maching. Last night I went grocery shopping and bought any and all veggies that I thought I could stomach raw.

I will not, however, eat 3 heads of lettuce. That's ridiculous!

That was me above.

Great job Dorothy - I'm anxious to hear from others and see if 10 days makes an impact for those doing the WAM 10.

I had 3 eggs, 1/4 avocado, 1 honey crisp apple (larger than normal - so it counts for about 3 vs 2 blocks in my opinion)...

So far for the challenge I have

2 eggs
2 pieces bacon
9 almonds
1 nectarine (like Aimee it was larger medium size so counting for 3 blocks v 2)

I'm in. For breakfast I had 3 hard boiled eggs, an orange (same thing, it was a big orange) and a tsp and a half of peanut butter. What a difference from my old breakfasts of dry cheerios or a bagel and orange juice!

6am Breakfast: 6oz tuna, two fist fulls of lettuce.

9am Snack: 4 scrambled eggs, a white potato in the form of hashbrowns

12pm Lunch: About 12oz of grass fed beef in the form of a roast, a fist full of baby carrots and onions.

3. to learn about nutrient content per serving size of food.

I messed up breakfast so I was left with one egg, 5 olives, and a 6 inch corn wrap for dinner :-(

Joy N said...

Breakfast: (2 blocks) 1 hard-boiled egg, 1/2 pita, 1 slice of cheese (approx. 1 ounce), 6 almonds

Lunch: (4 blocks) Turkey, avocado and cheese sandwich. [2 slices of break, 4 oz of turkey, 1 slice of cheese -approximately 1 ounce, 4 tablespoons of avocado]

Dinner: (3 blocks) White chicken chili salad

Snack: Still thinking about what I should have.

Question: Any idea how many pecans are in a block, or how much arugula I would have to eat in place of a head of iceberg lettuce or 6 cups of romaine for a salad? It's not on that chart that was in the article Aimee posted.

Miranda said...

Breakfast - 1/3c oatmeal mixed with 1 tsp chopped walnuts and 1tbsp cranberrys and raisens, 2 pieces of sausage, 1oz cheese.

Lunch - 4oz chicken, 1/4 c potatoe, 1/2 c strawberrys.

Aimee Lyons said...

I did a little research, couldn't find too much.
Go with 3 Pecans for one Fat Block
Arugula would be comparable to Romaine (about 6 cups)

Lunch seems a little lite on Carbs and on Fat, might we why you are hungry, looks like you need another 2 blocks CHO and 4 blocks FAT
