Logging food now

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Hi everyone!!!

I've decided to start logging my food to see where my calories are coming from. I have been working out nearly every day for a month and I have not lost any weight at all. I think I might be eating to maintain instead of eating to lose weight. I'm also not sure I'm eating enough of the right macro nutrients, although a lot of the professionals in the filed say it's about micro nutrients not macro.

Yesterday was:

1939 cal
64 g fat
280 g carbs
80 g protein

Obviously everything is too high. :( Will try to do better today.

    Who says too high? Every body is different, activity levels different....with that in mind, I eat about that much fat and protein myself. My calories go that high only rarely. I think that sometimes I need the energy that amount of fuel brings. My carbs are usually quite a bit lower but I find that lower carbs ( what a plant eater can do) and higher protein/fat seem to work for me. Maybe just track what you eat and see what you're doing before thinking stuff like everything is too high. I found that tracking, which I had never done before SP, is informative. After a couple of years at this, I still don't feel aware enough or confident enough to stop.

    Welcome to the world of calorie counting. It sucks at first, but you get used to it. You'd be surprised how much fat some foods have. Good luck!

    Journaling your food (intake) and exercise (outgo) is crucial to success

    Make today a great day!
