After a very quick peek at your Nutrition Tracker I think that you have plenty of wriggle room to meet your goals.

Most of the days I looked at you fairly high protein - at time well into the 100. If you reduced that, you could increase the carb by having wholegrains, and some starchy vegetable or fruit.

Altho' most the time you were good with your fat total (I'm not referring to healthy v. unhealthy) the odd time you were low, and that day the protein was also borderline. That is where nuts come in really handy - good protein and healthy fats - but as you indicate you hate them, but don't mind peanut butter, how about a peanut butter and banana sandwich on a good quality wholegrain bread/toast. Maybe that combination will work for you, or try another nut butter.

Below is a link you may find helpful for tips on boosting your calories:

I hope that you find this helpful.

Good luck,

For the past week I have been having to add in a few pieces of junk food each day in order to meet my calories goal. The veggies just fill me up so much with the chicken I eat that I get sick when I try to eat what I need. I used to be able to down 2 pizzas in one sitting but now I can't even eat 6 ounces of chicken and 2 cups of veggies!

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to up my calorie intake, and also my carb intake since without the junk foods I would not be anywhere near my minimum. I hate nuts but will eat peanut butter but just have not had the desire to eat it lately.


Does protein really fill you up that much? I would really like some food suggestions for increasing my calories and carbs without it being nuts.


Thank you!
