    I didn't do great after all yesterday.... for meals I did okay:
    Breakfast: Cheerios and my customary nonfat mocha
    Snack: Banana
    Lunch: dried apricots, orange-mint rice salad, and 3 Dove Dark Chocolate squares
    Dinner: Cassoulet and a spinach salad
    But then I got my evening sweets craving and ate a bunch of chocolate chips. Meh.
    I also think that had something to do with Aunt Flo though, who is currently visiting.

    But I did go ceili dancing last night, so I probably worked off a bunch of those extra calories and burned the sugar...and I only had water to drink to so I didn't add any alcohol calories.

    After work snacks: Piece of milk chocolate or cream or beer nuts. Some sugar free drinks.

    I think my calories might be too low but not too sure, I've been losing just under a Kg a week for the last 10 weeks although it stalled over easter when I ate heaps of chocolate.

    Haven't really been exercising just a few chin ups, push ups, squats etc. here and there.
    What do you think of my saturated fat intake?

    You said you had 100g of meat for lunch. What kind of meat?

    A good goal is to aim to get 10% of your total calories from saturated fat. So if you are eating 2,500 cals a day, aim for 25 g of fat. However, there are those that eat high fats and lower carbs (and no sugary processed carbs) that do really well on saturated fat diets. The goal is to just avoid high sat fats and processed carbs - that's the killer combo.

    At a quick glance, I'd say that it's possible you are a bit high, but if the only real sugary junk food you are eating all day is a piece of chocolate, I'd personally call it reasonable. Perhaps aim for a leaner meat, like chicken, fish, or 96% lean beef for lunch, and leave everything else the same.

    Whatever you do, don't get rid of the bacon!

    That is the theory I'm going with, in the absence of high carb (particularly sugar and wheat) saturated fat should not be a problem. Otherwise the traditional Inuit should have been riddled with heart disease, which they weren't.

    Felt very ill today and so I just ate whatever I felt like. A couple bowls of cereal andlike 3 tortillas. Lots of carbs and few nutrients. Tomorrow we have lunch catered at work which will probably not be super healthy, but yummy so I will eat it. Okay, so this week sucked. I'll get back on the wagon this weekend.

    Dinner - 1/2 avocado, 3 cups raw spinach, 1 cup frozen berries, 1-2 cups oj... blended. + Some other stuff I forage (hummus, cheese, nuts, etc).
