Learning about Carbohydrates

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I am fascinated by the nutrition tracker. I can't believe I am saying that. I can't believe I don't mind tracking! That has always been my hardest thing to make myself do. But there is a little item in the nutrition tracker that is keeping me tracking. It is the little pie chart I can look at to see how I am doing with fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Even though all of my foods were healthy foods...I can still get too much Carbohydrate! Today it was the simple matter of having a banana. Taking out that banana would have put me back in the right amount of carbs for the day. I say a banana, because the other items that are high in carb for me is my Dr. Oz green least when I use the suggestion from one of our people here. I guess I should point it out myself just to make sure.
I tried the water trick again today....yep....that sure works!
I think if I am wanting something tonight, I think I will have a nice warm cup of tea!
It is still VERY cold out there! We have a fog inversion layer that has lasted a week so far. Our highest temp was 33 degrees today...but...less than 100 miles away at the coast my mom was enjoying almost 60 degree temps, with a clear sky! emoticon

    When I've had a good day and kep relatively satisfied on the right number of calories that little pie chart is pretty close to the model one. Another secret is if you decided to add a nutrient to track, like fiber or sodium, you can get figures for prior days by running the feedback report,

    Agreed--I love the pie chart that breaks down everything. I mostly track protein, carbs, and fat, but it's awesome to have all that stuff broken down for me :-) I'm sipping peppermint tea at the moment--it's not quite as chilly as wherever you are, but it's still a nice, soothing treat!
