What I Eat 2018


– What I eat in a day.
(upbeat music)
Hi ladies!
It’s Erin, and welcome back to my channel.
Through my channel Busbee Style,
my goal is to help women just like you
who are busy juggling life,
look like you have your act
together, even if you don’t.
Today I wanna talk about
what I eat in a day.
What I eat, what I don’t eat.
This is one of the most common
questions I get, especially lately.
I think it’s because I’ve definitely
stepped up my game in
the fitness department.
So a lot of you are wondering
“What the heck is she eating?”
And I’ve done a video like this before
but it’s been several years,
so I thought it was worth
redoing and updating.
And giving you the scoop
on where I am right
now with diet and food.
The first key for me in terms of eating
is to not limit myself in any capacity.
It’s kind of like a mind
game I play with myself.
The minute I say to myself
I can’t eat something,
I feel constricted and
I feel like I want that.
So if I tell myself I can’t eat pizza,
pizza will be the first thing I wanna eat.
I have never been the type of person
who can go on a diet of any type.
Because the minute I do that,
my head is swimming with all
the things that I can’t eat.
Where normally if I don’t do that,
I don’t have that kind of
relationship with food.
I just eat what I’m
gonna eat and that’s it.
But if I start mentally saying
oh, you can’t have this, this,
this, this, this, this
and this, then I’m done.
So for me, a sustainable,
everyday attainable goal
is to just eat sensibly and
to limit certain things.
Before I talk a little
bit more about specifics,
I just wanna say I’m not a nutritionist.
If you need that, you should
go see a nutritionist.
I mean, I think that’s a
really cool thing to do
for yourself if that’s something
that you’re interested in.
Then can now do blood type
tests to see if you’re deficient
in any vitamins or specific nutrients.
Might be worth considering,
I kinda wanna do it myself.
But I feel like your body
also kind of tells you
what is going on and
what you’re deficient in,
and what you are wanting.
So again, I don’t limit
myself in any real way.
I just try to eat things in moderation.
I try to limit sugar, even
though I love sugar so much.
I’m a total sugar addict.
I like sugary coffee
creamer, I like ice cream,
I love Hot Tamales and Lemonheads.
And I love those Sour
Patch watermelon candies.
I love candy, I am a total
and complete sugar fiend.
So it’s really a battle
for me to limit sugar.
What I do as a compromise is I still have
my sugary coffee creamer in the morning,
and I also have one
ice cream bar at night.
And that’s usually a
Skinny Cow ice cream bar.
So I know its calories and
sugar are not the best for you,
but I just know this about myself.
I need a little sugar every day.
I know some of you can go without sugar
and you’re like “You don’t need it
“and your body doesn’t need it.”
Of course it doesn’t.
But I just am a happier, better person
if I have a little sugar every day.
So I will have a Skinny Cow ice cream bar
every day after dinner.
And usually we eat early,
so that means I’m having
that ice cream bar
usually before eight o’clock.
After eight, I usually
don’t eat much of anything.
Which is, I think, part of the reason
I’m able to maintain weight.
The other thing I do
that’s probably not normal
for most people is a type of fasting.
There’s a huge kind of
pushback to fasting.
What they call intermittent fasting.
And there’s a lot of science behind it.
I’ll link a podcast that my
husband clued me into below
that’s really interesting, and I think
one of those things you should listen to.
I will have coffee in the morning
and then I don’t eat much
until around lunchtime.
So I don’t have breakfast.
Which I know a lot of you will be like
“No, breakfast is the most
important meal of the day!”
I just don’t.
I’m not that hungry in the morning.
After coffee, I’m happy to
just not eat for a while.
Until lunchtime.
That’s another thing I do
that may be a little strange.
So I don’t eat after eight,
and I don’t eat much before noon.
So there’s a whole chunk of
time where I’m not eating food.
I also don’t do a lot of carbs.
So I try to limit bread intake
if I’m doing a sandwich or something.
I wanted to show you this bread
’cause I just kind of
discovered it recently.
It’s called Organic Bread Powerseed Bread.
So it’s low sugar, low carb
and high in whole grains,
and high in protein for bread.
So it’s like five grams
of protein per slice.
And so I love the taste of this,
and I think it’s a healthier bread option.
Not as sugar-packed as a lot of the
whole wheat breads are,
or whole grain breads.
So I do this bread, one
or two slices a day.
I might do an avocado
toast with this bread.
Or eggs and one piece of
toast with this bread.
And then I don’t really eat any
other kind of carbohydrates.
So I’m not gonna do potatoes or pasta.
I will maybe occasionally
do a rice with dinner,
like a brown rice or whole grain rice.
But that’s about it.
And sometimes we’ll have taco night
and then I’ll have a
tortilla with the taco.
What I’m eating is not carb-heavy at all.
It’s actually very low in carbohydrates.
Not a lot of breads, not a lot of pastas.
I drink milk, I eat yogurt,
when I’m craving sugar
and it’s too early for my ice cream bar.
I’ll have plain yogurt
with honey and granola.
I love that combination so much.
Or I’ll have a low glycemic fruit,
like a pear, or an apple, or strawberries.
They are low glycemic, which
means that your blood sugar
doesn’t spike when you eat those fruits.
So it’s more sustained
energy versus a spike.
If that makes sense.
They’re also great if you’re diabetic.
So those are kind of what
I would go to for snacks.
My cheat snacks, the
snacks that I have when
I’m cheating are definitely
popcorn and just more sugar.
Like I’ll have regular vanilla ice cream
or like maybe I’ll have
a box of Hot Tamales
(laughs)
on a road trip.
Or maybe it’s like chocolate chip cookies.
Or maybe it’s a piece of cake after dinner
or at a party or something like that.
I try to stick to this kind of plan
even though I don’t like to
call it a plan, ’cause again,
it’s the whole mind game thing.
I try to stick to it, but
I’m not very strict about it.
And that’s how I’m successful with it.
So if I do it like 80% of the time,
I feel like that’s pretty darn good.
And the other 20%, if
I cheat here and there,
I’m not gonna worry about it.
I’m not gonna worry about having
a couple slices of pizza with
my kids one night, you know?
It’s just I’m not gonna have
a panic attack about it.
The other thing that I’ve
been trying to incorporate
more into my diet day in
and day out are greens.
So I did this one week
of a plant-based diet.
It’s a company called Sakara, S-A-K-A-R-A.
And I thought I was gonna die.
I need meat, I cannot
do a plant-based diet.
Everybody’s different, so you
may love a plant-based diet.
And I thought I would
love it, but I did not.
I was craving meat the whole time.
One of the things that I took away
from that plant-based diet
was the sheer amount of greens
you’re supposed to eat in a day.
You’re supposed to have six
cups of greens every single day.
Six.
I did notice at the end of the
five days of the plant diet
that my skin looked better,
everything looked a little bit more glowy.
I didn’t necessarily feel better,
but I definitely saw the
difference in my skin.
I would like to incorporate
more greens into my diet,
whether that’s having a smoothie
with a buncha chopped up greens in it,
or maybe a spinach salad,
maybe just some broccoli with the salad.
That might get me the six cups of greens.
I just wanted to share that with you guys
because that was something I noticed
from that plant-based diet for a week.
I did notice my skin improved quite a bit
when I did eat more greens.
So I think that’s a great goal for us all,
if we can pull it off.
I’m looking into a smoothie service
that delivers smoothies that
are chock full of greens.
And I will keep you posted on that.
So that’s just another little thing
I’m thinking about doing, but yeah.
So lean proteins, but
I still eat red meat.
I’ll still eat red meat.
Vegetables, low carbs, low sugar.
I eat dairy, I eat eggs, I
drink milk, I have yogurt.
That’s sort of how I go about it.
And then the period of time
where I’m not eating that much food.
Which is between eight
and noon the next day.
That’s how I do it, guys.
Again, is this the right way?
Everybody’s different,
everybody’s body’s different,
everybody’s cravings are different.
Everybody’s different up here.
You may have to play different
mind games with yourself.
I don’t know.
I can’t jump in there and
help you with that one.
But I do know that you’ve gotta find
something that is sustainable
for you and realistic for you.
Because what works for one
person may not work for another.
I mean, I know because I’ve tried.
I can’t do the Whole30 thing.
I can’t eat paleo, I can’t do that!
Like, no!
In fact I think I gained
weight when I did that
(laughs)
’cause I was eating dried
apricots by the fistful.
And I just can’t do it.
It’s not sustainable for me.
So you have to know
what’s sustainable for you
and that is the key, because
I feel like when you do this,
the rollercoaster, that’s
where you run into trouble.
So my whole life I’ve always
just tried to kinda stay
within this five pound window.
Which I’ve done for the most part
except when I’ve been pregnant.
And those first couple years in college.
So I think that’s a
realistic and good goal.
Just to eat sensibly, eat in moderation.
Do give into your cravings
every once in a while.
If you do the 80-20 rule,
I think that’s a good one.
80% you’re trying to stick to the plan,
and 20% is cheating or
having little cheat moments.
I think that’s kind of a
healthy approach to it.
And I would read up on the,
well, first of all,
the blood type diet, I think it’s called.
Or the seeing a nutritionist
and getting a diet based
on your blood type.
I think there’s some really
interesting elements to that.
And I also would read up or listen up
about the intermittent fasting,
since there is so much
science supporting that now.
And also the greens
and incorporating more
greens into your day-to-day.
I feel like that was a big giant ramble.
But that is what I’m
eating and that is my plan
and my outlook on food, and
my relationship with food.
Do let me know if you
have any questions at all.
Again, I’m not a nutritionist,
I’m not sure I can answer those.
But I would be happy to share
more about what I’m doing.

    Hello Erin. Thank you for sharing. Despite being a health coach I also love sugar and have a kiddie cup of sorbet every day in the summer.
    I eat low glycemic fruits and gluten-free pasta once every 2 weeks. Otherwise I don’t eat wheat or other carbs. I eat low fat protein, vegetables, and have found that I can tolerate about 2oz. Of cheese per week. Intermittent fasting has helped me determine when I’m really hungry. I agree with finding a nutrition plan that is sustainable! Great advice!

    I also think it’s important to eat as much home cooked food as possible. I eat at home about 90% of the time.

    So, with intermittent fasting…. If you put creamer in your coffee in the morning, that breaks your fast. You can drink water, black coffee, black tea, etc. Nothing with any glycemic/insulin response. I'm only telling you because I'm just learning about it myself… Not trying to be a know it all. Lol. Obviously it's working for you anyway because you look amazing!

    So gorgeous Erin! Love the Norma Kamali racing stripe & nude color on you! When I sit down to a salad…I am GIDDY girl! But in order for me to be truly giddy, it must be endless measure of 4 to 6 cup volume! Oh my gosh, I was so embarrassed when you said how you struggle with that much greens. I struggle if I don't have that much! Elaine, from Seinfeld…"A REELLY REELY BIG SALAD" and they bring her a bowl the size of a volleyball. Yeap, that's me. Oh, I am dipping my toe in Keto (had always intermittent fast myself) Keto is adding to that high quality fats-with no carbs. Result for me, the good fat is giving more brain clarity which is what my fuzzy little grey cells were missing. Now what was I saying? Oh yes, Love the sit down chat! : ) ~ And the encouragement to others to find THEIR SWEET SPOT. Even that doesn't include sweets. XO-Bunnie

    Hi Erin. I have a green smoothie everyday to meet my 6c/day goal as well. Have a great one to share. 1c. coconut water or aloe juice, 1 frozen banana, 3c. greens of your choice(i use baby kale and romaine), juice of 1/2 lemon, small piece of ginger. I also add a scoop of wheat grass juice powder and collagen powder but, obviously not necessary. Super easy to drink 3 cups of greens. A large lunch salad takes care of the other three cups. Done.

    You are absolutely right about designing your own eating plan. The goal is everything in moderation. 80/20 is the way to go. And LISTEN to your body if you have any aches or belly problems. Sometimes people don’t make any connections to how they feel after a day of ‘crazy eating’. Another very overlooked problem is PORTION size. Even healthy food can add problems in mass quantities. We should think of food as fuel. Looking good, Erin!

    I'm a sugar addict. I gave up sweet treats several years ago. I also rarely eat breads or pasta. I do eat pizza once a week. That's what's kept the weight off for me. I tried that fasting and I was gaining weight…so weird. I also eat high protein. Loved hearing what you eat.

    OMG that is me too! I put on weight every time I go on a diet! The word and thought of dieting makes me super hungry! I eat sugar every day as well. I am thinking it is becoming a real addiction! I eat a lot of pasta and bread. I am like 50 lbs overweight and yet in my mind I feel great until I see other women and compare myself and look at myself in mirrors, especially in stores… other than walking I don’t really exercise. I guess I should start booking my spot in the biggest loser TV show! On the good side I don’t smoke nor drink!

    Have you ever been truly overweight? I also think your activity/exercise allows for all those carbs that you are calling low-carb. Glad you found something that works for you. Some of us can’t have one ice cream because it will increase sugar cravings. Intermittent fasting is great for men and younger and/or active women, but can cause thyroid problems in post menopausal women.

    I pretty much eat from 12:30pm until 6:30pm. I do have coffee in the morning and I use heavy whipping cream in it for creamer. I'm just not hungry until then. My Oncologist actually recommended intermittent fasting to me and I love it! I eat 2 TBS of natural peanut butter around 6:30, after my last meal, and it really tides me over and keeps me feeling full and satisfied!

    Incorporating more healthy fats (organic butter…yum!) has completely obliterated my sugar cravings. I was bulimic in my late teens-twenties, and a sugar-burner and sugar-craver all my life, but that is in the past. Absolutely love how I feel now in my late fifties, and I am enjoying my new, positive relationship with food. I also eat mostly gluten-free (so many great substitutes nowadays!), a ton of greens, and do intermittent fasting, too, which is super-easy now that I am including healthy fats. Thanks for the video.

    A word of caution about intermittent fasting. If you are insulin-resistant or have been diagnosed with diabetes, fasting can elevate cortisol levels. One of cortisol’s effects is that it raises blood sugar. So, in someone with blood sugar regulation issues, fasting can actually make them worse.

    I learned about intermittent fasting last year. It was really hard at first because my body was used to the 5 small meals kind of stuff. I love it. I also gained a lot of knowledge about food & try to incorporate those in my meals. Once my body got used to it I felt so much better.

    Thank you Erin for the video. I love breakfast as I wake up super hungry. When I was in college I was detected that I develop more acid than normal so I try to eat every 3 hours something small usually, fruit, veggies, nuts .. In my case I stop eating around 7pm to 8pm. I am in my 30's and in order to maintain wight I work out 30 min a day at least 5 days a week. I have lived in Southern California, Europe, NYC, and back in Southern California. I always loose wight when in Europe (1 week at least 5 pounds and when I lived there I was 30 pounds lighter) with out trying. In fact my last trip I lost 5 pounds in a week and we at alot of pastries. I would love to try intermitted fasting but am not sure if my extra acid development would affect anything? Thank you for all your videos!

    Oh Erin, I love you but I think my head exploded while you talked about your diet! Please please please watch some documentaries that will educate you on what refined sugar & animal products does to your body/health. I’ve been vegan for 8 plus years and there are plenty of satisfying and healthy options that mimic the texture of meat that are full of healthy protein. Watch Earthlings, Forks Over Knives, What the health, Cowspiracy, and there are tons more. Many are streaming on Netflix. Also, Kris Carr is a wonderful resource for yummy plant based lifestyle tips. Her story is very inspiring. I read some of the comments from your viewers and I am horrified at the bad info and diets suggested! As an influencer I hope you reconsider the info you put out there! Please do more research on food production and it’s environmental, animal welfare and health impact.

    Love this video. You have found what works for you. I love intermittent fasting. I am so with you, what I resist I want more. As far as your smoothie goes, instead of getting a smoothie service get a Vitamix. In the long run it will be easier and you can make some amazing smoothie super easy. 💜

    Thank you; awesome video! I eat very similar and naturally have a slow metabolism that packs on weight easily. Eating this way, I stay pretty close to my acceptable range for my structure. Just to add to Erin's tips…it took me a long time to understand the importance of fats. A holistic nutritionist told me to add more fat to my diet, but to make sure it was plant fat. I think she was meaning to focus on fat high in monosaturated fat. Using more olive oil helps me eat a lot more veggies and stay full, especially if you are going lower in carbs. In contrast, I don't seem to do well if I eat a fatty piece of red meat. Ann Louise Gittleman has written some books on beneficial fat for the diet.

    I also just have coffee with creamer for breakfast and don't eat till 12n or 1pm because I'm not a breakfast person. I'm not fasting per se, just the way I've always been even as a child. My mother always made lunch our big meal of the day ( I came home from school at lunch) and lighter meal for dinner. I too, am a sugar freak but I don't go overboard. Love jellybeans!

    I also cannot "diet" as all I can think about is when I can eat next and mourning the foods I cannot have! So I have cheat days too, remind myself I am not going to die if I have some ice cream. Life is short, eat the cake and buy the shoes Ladies!!!

    I've been Keto w/IM since 1/22/18. In only a few short months my energy is through the roof, arthritis pain has dissipated, blood pressure improved, and lost over 20 pounds. It's not about the weight/lbs for me, it is about the way I FEEL!

    You Look great!! I have been doing intermittent fasting since November and have lost 20 pounds. Its a great way to get the weight off in a healthy manner that works if you are the person who is not hungry in the morning…like us…I pretty much do what yo do but I do cut out the sugar. I do eat fruit though…

    I eat exactly as you do, no breakfast ever since childhood..just not hungry… with the same needs for meat protein, sugar (usually an apple as dessert dipped in cinnamon and sweetener my version of faux apple almost pie). Re veggies: I discovered at 70 from my ophthalmologist that both my husband and I had had the beginnings of cataracts GO AWAY after five years of eating MANY dark green fresh veggies….spinach and broccoli and others but spinach, raw as salads and cooked and broccoli . So, not only will your skin thank you, but your eyes too..our doctor said the darker the veggie and the more we eat, the more dramatic the effect on the eyes! No eye surgery in sight…yea!

    If you have listened to Rhonda Patrick, you will discover that anything non-water breaks a fast. So your morning coffee with Coffee Mate unfortunately means you have broken your fast. Other good resources for fasting include Dr Satchan Panda (also interviewed by Dr Patrick) and Dr Jason Fung. Thanks for sticking your neck out once again to talk about a sensitive topic! 🙂

    Lol, I'm a sugar loving girl, too! I will have my coffee w cream and sugar, or tea w lemon and honey, I do eat a nice breakfast w 2 eggs, lots of greens, avocado, tomatoes, etc… on a chiabatta roll. Lunch around 1 or 2 PM, a nice meal w salmon or chicken or pork, etc., veggies, maybe some potatoes, amd sometimes even pasta!… But nothing after that! So I don't eat dinner, but love my breakfast. I totally get the mental thing about wanting something that is not allowed!😑🤣 So I was never able to do any diets, just like you! I pretty much eat everything, but in moderation, and that keeps me sane and happy!☺️👍🏻 This way I can keep a healthy weight☺️👍🏻

    I just got back from Scotland / England tour with hubby and son. We stayed at bed and breakfasts and I was "forced" to eat breakfast as soon as we got up. Dude, I have gained 6 pounds after 2 weeks and I am sure it is a combo of limited exercise (apart from walking) and breaking my usual "fast" from 9 pm to 10 pm. Your philosophy is a great one and not too unrealistic and restrictive….nothing worse than the guilts! Great video!

    You are so right. We are not all created equal. What works for you may not work for me. But I find that you bringing out your choices is right to let viewers know what works for you. And some of these choices you choose, like veggies and fruits are always better for all.

    Thanks for the vid!! Same, I never diet and never restrict myself! It messes with your mind / metabolism, and actually can create eating disorders. Plus, I like to snack on my daughter's treats:) On that note, I do not eat dairy, or chicken or meat, although I do eat some fish ( I just couldn't say no). I eat whole foods and stay away from processed foods!! I love sugar too, but don't eat candy, just dark chocolate and fruit for days!! Basically, I eat whenever I am hungry, and eat healthy wholesome foods, that way, I don't think too much about it. Me and my daughter also always look at labels and try to keep the ingredients under 8:) I am my role model for my daughter, so I know she will copy my eating habits and how I live, so I am sure to eat healthy and exercise daily. We take long walks together and have treats together all the time (her ice cream, me a dairy free treat). There are too many diet restrictions and so many wacky diets out there, I just stick to the basics and that works for me at 49!! I do eat a lot of carbs, but I need that energy!! I make sure they are whole wheat. No Alcohol?? Wow, I could never give up my sake and champagne and margaritas!!
    You look GREAT, so whatever you are doing is working!!!! I say, whatever makes you happy, Do!! xoxox Samantha

    Bad. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Before my illness, I ate breakfast everyday. Now, my pains are so bad. I have to wait to get hungry. Don't feel so bad, cause I ate every time when I was not sick. Now, all I eat is oatmeal in the morning when I feel my hunger feelings. And or I wait til I get hungry at around 2 or 3, and set boiled eggs with avocado. But I ate good when I could. God bless.

    Erin, to stop sugar cravings consider taking chromium, & glutamine & if you crave sugar a lot, it could mean you are deficient in Zinc, so make sure you’re getting enough of that. It helped me and my skin is so much smoother now that I don’t eat a lot of that junk. A lot of sugar consumption causes larger pores on our face and we women do not want that!

    I completely agree with you. I'm a sugar addict and will never cut sweets off my diet. I have recently replaced all white flour and white sugar in my baking with almond flour, oatmeal flour and chickpea flour. I also replaced white sugar with date nectar. This way I can eat sweets everyday without filling my body with harmful ingredients.

    That's pretty close to what I've learned to do in order to keep my weight in check AND still enjoy meals with my family. It's not hard, not dieting, and if my pants feel too tight, I spend a couple of weeks away from heavy carbs and sugar. Then after I'm back on track, I'll let those back in a bit. It's worked for many years now (I'm 50 and have been a size 6 for most of the last 15 years). Diets always wore me out and usually failed. Intermittent fasting is easy and works if I eat sensibly most of the time. All bets are off on vacations, but I find I can drop that extra bloat and weight in a week or two of normal eating. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hi Erin. I have been intermittent fasting since before it was a household word. I agree with you about greens. It's hard to get a lot in. I got a masticating juicer and started juicing my own greens. I could not believe how my skin glowed after about a week of that. I Juiced 2 to 3 times a week. But I also noticed that sometimes the juicer sits on the counter collecting dust, because it's a big effort. I don't like to buy smoothies, because they often have lots of sugary fruits in them to cover the bitterness of the greens. When I juice my own, I use lime, Ginger, a carrot or Golden beet, and cucumber to dilute the bitterness without sweetening

I’ll have to think about moving dinner time a bit earlier when I can. I’m not a big night time snacker so that wouldn’t be difficult at all. You look fantastic and I like your non extreme methods

    Because of my chronic illness I am only out of bed 6 hours a day. I cannot work out anymore although I did 16hours a week before i got sick. I don’t eat meat but eat everything healthy as much as I can. So much bread, fruits , vegetables fish etc. I don’t really like sugary things, i dobt like candy except for chicolate which I eat too. I eat mostly irganic and only home cooked and nothing prepackaged, premade or whatever. And with that eating aa much as I can i only weigh 46 kg onbeing 1.60 m which is really very low. Evenbecause I hardly have any activity. Only thing is caring for my horses and piggies. So I think everything is about your metabolism. I have always been rather thin and I stay that wat although I am now 52. Some people might gain a lot when they eat what I eat. I almost loose wait but just cannot eat more. Most important thing is I think that you eat HEALTHY. And whenyou do that you can eat as mych as you like. And I just happen to love healthy food so that is easy. Thank you for this video!

    Your practical and honest advice is so refreshing in a world with too many diet choices. I am tired of the latest books tempting me. I dont need breakfast either, just coffee until lunch. I know that is a no no, but Ive never been that hungry first thing in the morning. Excluding food groups (unless for allergies), is getting old too. I agree with everything you suggest. I know my cheats ( wine, potatoe chips, licorice). Pray for moderation. 🙂

I found that bread at out local grocery when my daughter was born 5 yrs ago, we've used it since. ThinSlim bread is also tasty and zero netcarbs.
