Definitely use the nutrition tracker, that will help you see areas of your diet that might need a little tweaking. The nutrition tracker really opened my eyes to what & how much I was consuming in a given day!

When I'm not sure, or don't really have perspective on what I'm eating...I just record the food in the nutrition counter...it'll tell you pretty simply if it's too much or too little for you. After that you can guage servings etc. You may be surprised! I try to stay away from "throwing in" food...try to plan ahead so that you have organized snack time. You know you'll be hungry in the afternoon, plan ahead :) good luck!

SP can answer those questions. SP will give you a meal plan that fits your goal of losing 100 lbs by your birthday. If you don't want to use Sp's meal plan, go to Nutrition and enter you meals and you can find the Calories etc as you enter - either before you eat or after eaten. Don't worry about knowing everything at once, your goal to lose 100 lbs will take time and you will learn as you go along. Thus, as the weight lose gets more challenging you will be wiser and ready to meet the challenges

Hi everyone, I just joined SP yesterday and am looking forward to my 40th birthday next year when I will be 100 pounds lighter! But I need some help beginning my journey.

Today, before leaving for work, I threw a bunch of stuff in a bag. Tuna with light mayo, Ritz crackers, 6 fresh strawberries, a handleful of fresh blackberries, one peach, one orange, a container of nuts and a 100 calorie snack pack of chocolate teddy grahams. Sounds like a lot, I know, but I eat it all throughout my 12 hour day. For breakfast (at my desk) I ate about 3 oz of tuna, 1 tbsp of light mayo, 8 Ritz crackers. For snack (also at my desk) I had 3 strawberries and a few blackberries. For lunch (again at the desk...do you see a pattern), I will have another 3 oz of tuna with 1 tbsp light mayo, Ritz crackers and more fruit. Afternoon snack will be more fruit and maybe a handeful of nuts around 4pm. Dinner at home will be baked cod with salsa, brown rice with scallions and mixed veggie or salad. Does that sound like way too much!!? Please advise. I have no idea what I'm doing. emoticon
