    Sounds healthy to me? Caloric, maybe, but definitely healthy.

    Excellent -- there aren't any difficulty levels at my gym, as far as I can tell, so I'm hoping they're pretty beginner-accessible.

I definitely get enough fat in my diet.
    Before I started fixing up my diet, most of my protein was probably from eggs and dairy. At some point I'm going to try and add in one serving of meat per day, or every other day. Not trying to do a "high-protein diet" or anything -- just up the proportion of protein relative to everything else. Especially relative to grains. A good example would be if I'm making pasta, to have some meat in it or with it, and a big serving of vegetables on the side (in addition to the vegetables already in the pasta). So the pasta fills up half the plate, or less.

    Yeah. Not too caloric, I think I've added it up and gotten about 250 calories. Which is definitely less than if I had eaten a comparable portion of cookie dough ice cream (what I actually wanted). The almond milk I use is only like 35 calories for a full cup.

    Awesome! It might still feel really difficult at first if you aren't a regular exerciser. I was working out pretty regularly when I first started and I thought I was going to die after my first time. I had sore muscles I didn't know I had. Now I love it though.

    Interesting. I remember reading that the average citizen of an industrial country is eating too much protein. And I am personally trying to do the opposite meat-wise: cut it out where it is not really necessary (e.g. on a pizza or sandwich, etc) to eventually limit meat consumption to 1-2 dishes a week. Maybe try lentils or other legumes if you want more protein? Also, what is so bad about grains? Assuming they are not just something as empty as white bread or other husked wheat? There are so many different types of grain as well. Whole grain varieties of wheat, rye and whatnot.

    Not criticizing, just curious.

    Probably true -- then again, most people in industrialized nations aren't accidental vegetarians like I am (from being too lazy to cook meat, and not enthusiastic enough about legumes to fit them into my meals every day)! The past few times I've calculated it, I've apparently been consuming about 5-10g too little protein every day.

    More legumes is a good idea. I did make lentil soup and freeze it a while back... I should thaw it out next week...

    Nothing's bad about grain, except that I've been eating too much of it relative to vegetables, fruit, and protein sources like meat and eggs. For example, at about this time last year I was eating granola cereal for breakfast, a sandwich or something similar for lunch, and a bowl of pasta with spinach/tomato sauce for dinner. Not all that balanced, relatively speaking. Needed more of everything BUT grains.

    I'm sure Jezza would be happy to build you a Corvette blender for making beef smoothies.
