thanks for those comments.

I might post another day's eating for more critique. At very least it'll help me get a better look at what's actually going on in my diet (and not what I imagine is going on).

Ok...today was kind of interesting day of eating. Pretty good for the most part, but skewed on account of a late wakeup.


Breakfast (more like brunch):

- 1 cup of yogurt -- this time it was a 4% instead of 1.5%, the highest fat I could find at the store. 5g carb instead of 15g (which was in the 1.5%).

- About 30g of herring (pickled, no mayo, no other sauces of any sort)

- 3 eggs done in oven. Teaspoon of olive oil

-1/5 avocado



Lunch

- about 75g lean sliced turkey


Snack
-yogurt + 30 g protein powder


Dinner

- 2 strips tofu + 1/5 avocado

- 1 chicken breast baked with 2 tablespoons olive oil


Snack

- probably some nuts, though unsure of which or how many



1 multivit, fish oil

and probably 1- 1.5 liter of water

3 cups coffee (black), 1 cup mint tea



thanks again.

Very nice. Much better than before.

A few more points:

-At this point just be concerned about total calorie intake.
-Also be aware of the tofu you are buying, there are healthy and unhealthy versions of it.
-I suggest you buy frozen veggies to store away (NOT CORN OR BEANS!), I still don't see any. A daily salad doesn't count unless you add more dense veggies into the mix.
-Invest in some natural peanut butter if you want to mix up your protein shakes.

cool- thanks.

I'll get some of the vegetables, though probably fresh. any specific recommendations?, especially as to what's "dense"?

last time at store, I found myself staring at the vegetable section until, as the old Nietzsche saw goes, the vegetables started to stare back. bought only cucumbers and tomatoes.

That's a good start, now add greens, Romaine lettuce and spinach are good. You can buy containers of washed mixed greens, just add a handful to your tomatoes and cucumbers and you have a salad.

Go to whfoods.com for a list of the best foods.

Just skip the low fat dairy section of their list.

thanks...I'll do that.

today's been another pretty good eating day.

eggs in morn with tuna, small amount of cream, 1 slice whole wheat bread, coffee, 2 slices cheese, veggie salad.


lunch was chicken salad--teaspoon olive oil, salt, pepper. black coffee.

i'll go for a nuts snack.

I realize this is repetitive but it helps a lot to write it down getting started. And I just know I won't do it without someone taking a gander (and all my friends are gorging on Cap'n Crunch for breakfast and mac'n cheese for dinner (seems that any food with an apostrophe in its name should be automatically banned)).

anyways, will get a good look at whole foods list and then head to the fresh fruits/vegg market to pick up some cheap greens.


thanks again.
