    you can usually find young coconuts in asian supermarkets.
    thai young coconuts are the tastiest.

    if not there are a couple brands like zico, o.n.e, or vitacoco,
    but they're from brazillian coconuts. can't really tell the
    difference if you're not picky. but i am. teehee.

    breakfast: green smoothie: mangoes, strawberries, pineapple juice + spinach
    lunch: green papaya salad
    dinner: mango + raw cashew nut butter

    still trying to stay off meat. thought i need to pay more attention in
    my food combining, i always get carried away in the morning, because
    so sleepy / hungry / slpungry. ideally i'd like to keep it one type of fruit,
    one type of veggie, one type of nut per meal just so i can really give
    my system a rest.

    also, i love how i've been pooping lately. just prrrpppp comes right out.
    and floats. floaty poo is healthy poo.

    jock's been eating grilled chicken breast with beans and green beans.
    the day before he had baby leaves with his chicken. good strong healthy boy.
    he's been pooping better too with the greens.

    when i'm trying to get into a dress, i cut out all sodium
    (and use braggs aminos for seasoning instead).

    i also avoid all dairy, helps me to shrink, debloats,
    gets my tummy a bit more flat.

    i stick to very, very high fibre and nutrient densed foods.
    i usually do this 2-3 days before i need to get in a tight
    dress across the tummy a la herve leger style.

    I'm going to cosplay as Lara Croft in June. While I LOVE my body, and the way it is now <3 fat-cells and all, I still want to trim it down a bit for that costume to add an extra ounce of confidence to it. I ALSO want to gain muscle weight. So, I'm thinking of aiming for a 1,200 calorie a day diet, emphasis on protein and vegetables.. but NOT count any vegetables and fruits in that calorie counter. (Translation: I can eat all of those that I want to my heart's content.)

    Challenge accepted. While Easter will totally be a cheat day, I'll focus hard on it between now and June 10th. I think I may take before and after pictures too. :3 GREAT thread idea. !

    I've slacked on inputting all of my input into my Sparkpeople over the past few months, but I feel motivated to start up again.

    The website is http://caloriecount.about.com/
    I love it!! It is free, and I don't have to do a lot of manual input. There is also a function to assemble recipes and meals. Before they had the recipe function, it was kind of annoying because for anything you cooked, you'd have to either enter each ingredient, or else add it up manually from the box labels and enter the whole recipe as a "Custom Food." And the Meal function is nice too-- in the winter I have oatmeal with dried cranberries, almond slivers and skim milk for breakfast quite frequently, so I made an "Oatmeal Breakfast" meal so I don't have to add each item separately.

    As for the carb limit, it's based on the number of calories you are trying to stick to-- they have a calculator that helps you figure out the number of calories you need to lose, maintain, or gain based on your lifestyle and, body style and weight. But you can adjust it manually if you want a lower carb limit or whatever:


    I sound like an ad for the site, but I really love it. I did WeightWatchers online for awhile, but this site is free and much better, I think.

    I usually do really well all day, and then in the evening I either get hungry or get sweets cravings and give in. Yet again last night I had some ice cream in the evening and blew an otherwise pretty good day. But the purpose of this thread isn't to beat ourselves (or others!) up-- the important thing is just to try to eat healthier!

    Sounds intriguing... what's cosplay? I was thinking when you said 1200 calories that that sounded very low (although I don't know what type of body you have), but if you don't count fruits and veggies in there, no problem. Good luck!



    My foods for yesterday:
    Breakfast: Cheerios and homemade iced mocha
    Snack: dried apricots and orange juice
    Lunch: Banana, pinach salad with clementine, hummus and crackers, 3 Dove chocolate miniatures
    Dinner: Shrimp in Spicy Coconut Milk, canned spinach
    Evening: 1/2 c Ben & Jerry's Fudge Brownie Ice cream.... but it was yummy!

    About 2100 calories, went over in carbs, cholesterol (due to the shrimp, of all things!), and under in potassium, as usual.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Sounds good. I usually use Sparkpeople, which I've found very good for inputing, but I've yet to try their other nutrient trackers. If those aren't too great when I start using them, I'll definitely be giving that site a try. lol If for nothing more than liking the setup of the read-out. I was concerned about if it was going by overall daily needs or by caloric goal, so that's great to know!
    Also, definitely stealing your oatmeal breakfast sometime. It sounds delicious.

    Don't worry about sounding like an ad. I get that way with Zumba and Sparkpeople.

    That's a neat site, Aquarelle. I think I'm going to use it when it comes time to do my 2 week food journal.
