I like this sample of the 1800 calorie diet, I got this from an article I read on SP. Wanted to keep this for reference. It is another good day. My brother in law turns 50 yrs old today. We are having a party for him at Old Chicago. I am going to stick to my plan and not eat high calorie food. This will be a challenge I know. But I am planning ahead of what I can eat and what I have eaten today.. So hopefully, I will eat healthy..
