    OK its lunch time (just finsihed) and I've already taken in about 900 cals. That to me seems high for this time of day, but I guess its OK?

  2. thats just about right to hit 1800 by 7-8pm

  3. A little while back someone asked about what I like to eat, or want to include. Hmm.. everything haha. Well if I had to pick some favorites, lets see, here's a few:

    pinto beans
    black beans
    flour or corn tortillas
    cheese
    salsa
    sour cream (see a trend here? haha)
    guacamole
    yogurts (pretty much any dairy)
    hummous
    salad dressings like caesar and italian
    pork - just about all cuts
    beef
    chicken wings
    potatoes
    mayo
    100 calorie packs including protein bars
    garlic!

    and I DO like it hot! Bring on the habaneros!
    I am not a big bread eater, nor am I a big dessert eater.

  4. if you leave out or minimize the potatos, and make careful choices on the specifics of the others, you are all set. Ground turkey in taco seasonings makes for an excellent burrito with black beans, fat free kraft cheddar and low fat sour cream

    Calorie counting is an annoying thing. Try not to dwell too hard on it (because it gets really tricky).

    But, essentially, you need calories to keep your metabolism going and burn more calories. This is usually where the "Campfire" analogy comes into play.

    I put half a twig on the fire and it does nothing; the fire will eventually just die down. Put an armfull of sticks or a log on the fire, and it will continue to burn brilliantly. Put too many sticks/logs on the fire and you smother it; the fire dies down again.

  6. after lunch I had one of those McCanns oatmeal packets. YUMM!! 100 cals. And a Reeses bar that was 260 cals.


    so by dinner I counted 1260 but to be safe I said 1300.

    And I'm having a Weight watchers fiesta chicken for dinner 260 cals 13g protein with a bottle of Special K protein water (30, 3g).

    I added my own tablespoon of chopped garlic and chili sauce neg. cals, maybe 10.

  7. today I had 250 cals for breakfast, and for lunch a south beach wrap pack (240, 14g) and an 8 oz protein shake made with skim milk (300, 22g)

    puts me at about 800 at noon. room enough for a afternoon snack before dinner if I feel hungry enough later. Amazing the difference a day makes huh?

  8. and you should feel more energetic too, which makes it easier to be more physically active, which burns more calories

  9. Great thread. LOTS to discuss:

    #1 Am I the only one that is NEVER satisfied with low GI carbs? Seriously, for me they seem to have the opposite of the filling effect that everyone else describes.

    #2 I have a female friend who is 5'6" 140 lbs and 20-21% bf. She eats about 125g pro/250g carb/30g fat per day. I guess that's around 1770 cals for maintenance for her. She REFUSES to increase protein intake for cost reasons as you ladies mentioned and she just doesn't have the will to eat more meat or drink more shakes.

    1. I thought GI has been pretty much deemed as irrelevant? Which low-GI foods are you talking about? For me personally, oats which are relatively low in GI fill me up, but so do white potatoes..

    2. Is she happy with how she looks right now? Sounds like she is at a good weight and bf for her height, does she want to build muscle or does she prefer the slim look, in which case what she's doing sounds pretty good already.

    And to keep the numbering system going...

    1. To be honest I'm not sure about GI's relevance. I have to admit that I have difficulty determining credibility of sources when I read "carb-related" articles, so I'm still in the process of developing my own opinions.

    2. Ya, she's a really confident girl and has a refreshing sense of humor when it comes to female body image. When she's lifting, she gets an ego and wants to build muscle. 15 minutes later, she changes her mind and wants to be as slim as can be. Quite frankly, I'm entertained by her whole decision making process

  12. today 390 cals for breakfast, 30 cals protein water after w/o with a 195 cals yogurt w/flax.

    Thats it so far today. mY stomach's feeling a bit....errggh ... just took a load of supps, mebbe it just needs to calm down first.

    Sounds like she is fine as a daisy doing what she does now

    Agreed. I think I just wanted to show bassgirl that we all seem to have difficulty learning about macros and calories, choosing a diet plan, and then actually executing the plan. Browsing through bassgirl's posts in this thread reminded me of my friend on so many levels.

    Bassgirl, running a log is the BEST way for me to stay honest with my diet. Then when you plateua, it will be very easy to make appropriate adjustments. I bet this is going to be very successful for you
