    Good carbs are wholewheat/wholegrain types. So things like oats, brown bread, brown rice, brown pasta. Fruit and vegetables are good sources of carbohydrate aswell.

    As for how much you should be eating we'd have to know your weight, your bodyfat % would be a plus too.

    Hi,
    Ok your ratio is going to need to be more like 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fat.
    You are really going to have to cut out the pasta and add more lean meat, chicken for example.

    Corn on the cob, although not terrible has a high GI index for a vegetable and can spike your sugar levels making you crave sweet things.

    You need to be taking low GI carbs and more protein.

    Calorie wise you are at about the right amount, you just need to switch a couple of things up.
    How about switching your grape nuts and milk for oatmeal (old fashioned) made with water?

    You seem to already know from your fitday log where your weakness is, so keep up with it and be strict with yourself. Try cutting out one sweet tea a day and see how that goes.
    Its going to need to be small changes at a time if you are going to stick with it, but this is going to be a complete lifstyle change, not just a quick fix.

    Keep us updated with your fitday.

    Have you calculated your BMR yet?
    If not, go here: BMR Calculator

    That will give you an idea of your BMR. If you want to lose weight, say 1 pound per week, you will need to eat 500 cals less/day than your BMR. etc. etc. I'm sure you know this stuff but this will give you a good baseline start on your diet plan.
    good luck.

    wow - great minds on this board.

    Up til now most of what I read on this board is how to build and put on muscle.

    Im impressed - All the support this lady is getting on how to get rid of probably years of unwanted fat.

    Noone has yet mentioned blood work...to check hormone imbalance....

    and Caretaker - read, learn and WANT your goals - if you want it bad enough theyre yours.

    Go girl! Go for the Gold. Think about staying with us and becoming a Gold Member - its not necessary - but it will help with the support of this board.

    Oatmeal is great and you might try some psyllium pills between meals (metamucil)......the fiber is good for you, makes you feel full, and lowers cholesterol at the same time.

    hope I dont get banned for my sick sense of humor.....just edit me....instead
    Work your way up with the metamucil. Small dose at first, a little more each day. I take 6 a day (2 x 3 doses)....but you don't want to start out taking that many.

    Great reference of nutritional content Fit!
    "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to FitnFirm again."

    I will mention that different brands of food have different amounts of carb/protein/fat per 100g so if it's an option try to get the most nutrient dense foods (just not fat dense), it'll help get your meal size down without lowering your calorie intake.

    How often are you working out?

    At 5'9" and 160lbs, your BF is probably reasonable and I'd guess somewhere around 30%.

    For a bodyfat reduction plan, my calculations give you the following for total daily caloric needs:

    2,041 kcal
    300g pro
    180g carbs
    53g fat

    I used a 50/30/20 split for macro ratios. If anything, I would swap carbs for fat, but don't mess with the protein or lower the fat IMO. This split seems to work well for the ladies I've been training.

    This assumes 1/2 hour of moderate weightlifting and 45 minutes of cardio.

    Note to AM folks from the Emergency Warning System - do not listen to Kwyck.
    His diet consists of ice cream and other junk.
    He's a poor role model.

    Assume about 1 g/mL, so 1150 grams.

    Or 1150/454 = 2.5 lbs or so.

    I went straight to the kitchen...found and filled a measuring bowl...I agree that is alot of saline! are you sure? Not thats its important or relevant to your eating habits or excersice program.

    I think all here are excited about your after pictures in 6 months. I agree with fitnfirm, posting pics will give you more incentive to work harder.
