    (my calorie counts are more about learning the nutritional value of food items)
    BMR = 2335
    BMR+Activity = 3619

    Stage 1: cutting out refined sugars
    Goal: cut out coffee and tea completely by the end of this week

    i was doing 5-6 cups of coffee with sugar per night (going to cut this to 3 tonight)



    Wakeup: 6:30 pm
    6:45 Hot Tea with sugar and Emergen-C (Cal 85 Prot 0 Carb 22)

    8:00pm Breakfast:

    2 Pork Chops (breaded and fried) (Cal 620 Prot 82 Carb 20)
    1/2 cup collard greens (Cal 25 Prot 2 Carb 5)

    9:40pm Protein Shake [whey, milk, cassein, egg proteins] (Cal 272 Prot 60g Carb 4)


    [values for protein shake are changing because i have 2 different ones. The one that came in the mail today is lower calorie - higher protein - lower carb. It also tastes worst, so i am mixing the 2 together]


    11:45pm -12:20am lower body workout (weighed in at 220 today - suspecting lots of water gain)

    12:20 protein shake (Cal 336, Prot 52, Carb 17)

    3 Baked Turkey Wings (Call 330, Prot 35, Carb 0)

    1:00am Hot Tea with sugar and Emergen-C (Cal 85 Prot 0 Carb 22)

    3:30am i'm hungry

    3 Packs Instant Oatmeal (Cal 390, Prot 9, Carb 81)


    5:30am Breakfast
    3 eggs boiled (Cal 234, Prot 19, Carb 2)
    2 sausage patties (Cal 162, Prot 20, Carb 7)
    Orange Juice (Cal 170, Prot 3, Carb 39)



    daily totals

    Cal 3168

    Prot 241
    964 calories from protein (30.4%)

    Carb 274
    1096 calories from carbs (34.5%)

    3168-2060= 1108 guestimated calories from fat (34.9%)

    Hey, good job logging.

    But it might be easier for everyone to understand/read if you edit one post per day. To do this go to the bottom right hand corner of your original post and click 'edit', then add in the meals you ate and the food and click change/post [I can't remember right now what it says].

    Then you'll have one day nicely set out per post.

    FYI

    i love that spreadsheet

    i love spreadsheets in general, but that one is laid out well -- it looks very functional -- it does the math for you and takes out the guess work -- i am slightly envious

    i have to make one now

    :lol:

    I wish I had that kind of mad spreadsheet skills. That was auto-generated by loseit.com. I just tweaked a few things to improve the aesthetics...

    Food Log for 3/27/2012

    No log today since I was all over the place. Had a road trip day to get affairs in order for a new tenant at a rental property as well as lining up the renewal for my LLC and a few other legal and financial hurdles that go along with all of that.

    Bottom line: I ate out 3 times today.

    Breakfast: McDonald's

    Sausage and egg biscuit
    2 hash browns
    1 Hotcake

    Lunch: Darcy's Pint

    Muffaletta Sandwich (half of a 10")
    1 oz. potato chips(similar to classic lay's)
    1 dill pickle spear

    Dinner: Cracker Barrel

    Chicken BLT with three bread and butter hamburger pickle chips
    One cup of potato soup
    3 biscuits with roughly 1 tbsp of real butter


    No true idea of calories or macros since Cracker Barrel refuses to publish theirs and Darcy's is a local place without publish info. I may do some googling later and see if I can estimate, but for now I am calling a mulligan.

    :D

    ...and by "best," I'll assume that you meant "worst." :p

    After looking at McD's nutrition info online and thinking a little about the individual items I ate at each meal(and guesstimating based on likely prep methods), I think I did alright. I am relatively confident that I came in around 3400-3500 calories in the end. That would be right on plan.

    I know sodium was probably higher than normal, but calories matter more anyway... sodium will flush out easily enough in a few days. I'll have to wait and see were I land at the end of the week when I measure again.

    wtf is dfac food?

    Food log for 3/29/2012

    Nice day of fasting. This one ended up as a 25 hours fast... Another fast coming tomorrow. It is more likely to be 22 hours, though. Either way, I can't wait for Easter...

    dfac = dining facility

    NASA has the contract for food service ... not the astronaut NASA

    NASA is the name of the company that won the contract to work our dining facility.

    mostly eastern europeans, philipinos, and they have some afghani's as labor

    i've got one question:
    why do you have orange juice (sugar) when you can have a whole orange and get the fibers as well?
    and one suggestion:
    until a few days ago i was thinking the same thing about coffee because i couldn't imagine having it black, with no milk/cream nor sugar. BUT i've started having espresso shots to which i add hot water and nothing else. it gets me going and it takes 2 cups only to acquire this new sugarless taste. you can actually enjoy the taste of a great blend the way one is supposed to (it's said that milk and sugar in coffee are like water in cognac:))
    or is there another reason you want to cut out coffee completely?
    also, pork chops, they're very high in fat, i've just realized that too, but one can still work other stuff around them to have a balanced intake.
    what are the amounts of food? for instance, on fitday, for
    one cup orange juice i get: 113 cals and 27.1 g of carbs, 1,7g protein

    it fits in my macros, and i like something other than water with my breakfast foods

    the orange juice comes in a little box that is 0.2L ... there is no nutritional information .. so i go on calorie count, find an orange juice, and get the nutrition information per ounce and multiply by 6.76.

    it is really hard to tell how accurate i am ... but i am trying

    i am now thankful for this log


    started adding what i have already eaten today and have realized that i am on track for a 30/40/30 split

    i can now look through here at things the dfac usually have and try to adjust my intake accordingly to get my daily total back on track
