    How's my grocery list


    I went and picked up some groceries, trying to get healthy foods to aid in losing BF. I'm currently at 36%. Please chime in if any of this is gonna be counter productive. Skinless chicken breast, weighed and cut into 4oz pieces or as close as I could get. Flounder, squash, green bell pepper, raw mushrooms, bananas, white albacore tuna, unsweetened apple sauce, frozen broccoli, frozen mixed vege's and whole wheat tortillas. Oh, not on the list, but every morning I have oatmeal with cinnamon and ground flax seed mixed in. I work out 3-4 days a week. Forgot to add natural peanut butter and honey.

    What does a sample day of eating look like for you? The food selection looks pretty good. I would suggest adding some butter in and pick up some red meat.

    It will really depend on carb intake but around 0.5-1.5lbs of meat, fish and eggs per day is what I would say is optimal. If low carb then closer to the higher end. 1lb a day is prolly a good starting point

    Daily goes oatmeal w/flax seed for breakfast. Flounder or chicken breast with mixed vege's or the chicken/bell peppers/ 1/4 cup of cheese in a quesadilla on the whole wheat tortilla. Then which ever one I didn't have for lunch, I'll have for dinner. Protein shake post work out. Usually a tbsp of peanut butter/honey between lunch and dinner.

    That looks fine. Honestly at 35% I wouldnt worry too much on micro managing. While food choices are important your layout seems ok. Are you still making progress?

    Here is what I would suggest. If you havent done so already, start tracking your food intake. There are plenty of phone apps that do this and it really isnt the inconvenience it once was. After a week or two of tracking if you are loosing weight at a decent weight then maintain that. If its too fast then add calories. Ifs its not enough then take away calories. After you are tracking you intake if you want to post your daily P/C/F intake or meals then we can help further balance it out some but ultimately if your making progress than keep with it

    I've got the app calorie smart, I like it pretty well. I haven't figured in this new set of meals yet though.

    Should I use the cans of tuna as a "snack" between lunch and dinner or is that too much ?

    This would be a fine idea sir, eating tuna is great idea anytime of the day! 4oz=26g protein(approx 1 sm can) and is also a decent source of potassium.

    Whole wheat tortilla


    The package of whole wheat tortillas I bought has the words "net carbs" on it. From what I've looked up, the term net carbs seems to be more of a marketing ploy than anything. Each tortilla has 32g of carbs, 26 of which are fiber, so it essentially says those 26 don't really count, leaving the 6 net carbs. So my question is, is the net carb thing BS ?

    No it is not BS. If you're counting carbs, look at at this way. You're goal is 250 grams. Your TOTAL carb intake it 285g, but you have 35g worth of fiber in there for the day, you are at your 250 for the day. Fiber is not digested.
