    Interesting with you guys eating more meals, I'm actually trying to only eat at the three meals with no snacks/small meals in between. Give my body a good hormonal rest between meals.

    I really fell off the wagon hard this weekend, to the extent that I'm too embarrased to write it all down (multiple eating out, all greasy food, lots of cheese, multiple ice cream....lol)

    today was ok

    -vector with milk
    -homemade carrot cake with cream cheese icing - generous slice OMGSOGOOD
    -chickpea/spinach/blackberry salad again
    -baby carrots and sugar snap pea pods again
    -about 1/3 of a fresh-cut pineapple
    -a chocolate thing (not too much, like a cadbury creme egg size but all chocolate)
    -some nuts and dried fruit

    now:
    -rye bread with margarine, toasted
    -sweet potato
    -tea with honey and milk

    ...I really do best when I avoid restaurants completely

    So, I've inputted what I've eaten so far during the day. A few things I notice... I have too much fat relative to carbohydrates and protein, and I really need to up the protein to build muscle mass with my p90x workout routine. Basically, I need another ~900 calories today, all of which must come from a carb/protein mix, with very little room for fat. Any Suggestions?

    Haha sweet, looks like I've sold another one on Calorie Counter . What about some chicken with rice for dinner to get that lean protein and carbs? If you still need more carbs, maybe a banana for a snack-- that will up your potassium and fiber too.

    I added some chicken, and did eat a banana, but still too low on the protein and potassium!



    On a positive note, these changes in my eating habits which result from the use of this calculator have immensely improved my workouts. I felt soooo good after working out today, it is amazing.

    and begin slitting throats.

    Potassium is nearly impossible to get enough of, I've found. You have to eat like 10 bananas!! Spinach works well, especially if it's cooked spinach, to increase the density. Sometimes I have trouble with protein too, but usually potassium and iron are my problem areas.

    I know, it's amazing how much of a difference having the right nutrients makes!!

    I tried to do the calorie thing but it was really annoying so I gave up (it wanted servings in grams and I don't weigh my food so...). I'm sure it gets easier with time.

    yesterday

    -cheerios, milk
    -went out for lunch (2 spring rolls, thai red curry lamb+ lots of rice)
    -milk
    -a bunch of tea biscuit-type cookies (kinda like arrowroots)
    -2 pickles
    -a fair bit of cheddar cheese

    I think that's all....not my best day, lol.

    today

    -plain yogurt (3%MF), with granola (harvest crunch) and a banana
    -tea with milk and 1/2 packet of brown sugar
    -chickpea/spinach salad
    -carrots and pea pods
    -about 1/2 cup of various nuts and dried fruit
    -chocolate-dipped granola bar

    that's all for now....

    Yesterday was not my best day, either. I did really well until the evening, when I went to dinner with my family before giving my Masters presentation. I did mainly good at dinner, but then I ate part of the cookie my husband got, and had another cookie at the presentation where refreshments were served. Then when we got home, my spouse and I were both hungry again, so we had some pizza.
