Need Calculating Help....
Friday, January 08, 2010
Well we only have 1 week left on vacation and we get back to normal living. My husband and i have been eating nothing but crap it seems like and have both gained some weight. We bought 2 books: Making the Cut by Jillian Micheals and The Perfect 10 Diet.We've decided to try the Perfect 1- diet as soon as we get home. It focuses on balancing hormones and is very god for diabetics with controlling blood sugar leels.It says to balance your meals into 40% carbs, 20% protein and 40% fat. Ok my dilema is trying to figure out if i'm eating those amounts. How would you calculate how much of each i would eat? i know on nutrition labels it says the daily percentage for each nutrient for a 2000 cal diet but how do i know the percentage for say a 1400 cal diet????? Like how do i know if i'm eating 40% carbs for the day??? It seems kinda confusing to me. Any suggestions to help? Any help is greatly appreciated!
Anyway, we will be cutting out any caffeine...(my husband drinks only diet soft drinks but that isn't allowed), processed foods and meats, no light or "diet' foods as wellAnd we'll be tryhing to buy organic meats and free range chickens if possible in Ft. Mac, Alberta. We'll be giving this a try and sticking it to it the very best we can. We've already given up all margarines and bought 4lbs of natural butter....yummmm.
We go home Jan. 14 and will be starting this new lifes i'll keep everyone posted on how things are going.tyle.
