There is always some trial and error, some tweaking. Experience will become your best guide for what works or what doesn't.

Keep at it and I'm sure you will do fine!

I told you some of my requirements. I am a vegetarian (meat makes my lymphangictasia worse. I try to make my protein goal of 120 g per day. Most of my fat comes from my Omega 3, 6, and 9 supplementation. I would ideally have a goal of 10 grams of fat per day, but I find this extraordinarily hard to stick to. (as you can well imagine). Much of my protein comes from milk, yogurt, and soy protein powder. I also rely on vitamins to help me through. I know I need to increase my intake of all kinds of fruit, vegetables, and beans. I also eat nuts, but they bring my fat intake up. Can you give me any ideas?

Since there are "essential fatty acids", I suggest that you ask your doctor how much fat should be your intake goal each day to meet need and prevent deficiency complications.

I was diagnosed with intestinal lymphangiectasia when I wa 8 months old. I am supposed to eat as little fat as possible. In the past, I have had a nutritionist who put me witha modified diet including lean meat. I am now a vegetarian, so things have changed.

I gain weight at 1800 cal, so I prefer 1200-1400 calories per day.
I am tring so get back to the ultra-lowfat diet Less than 10% (in a perfect world would be a ittleMy protein need are augmentted but a soy islate powder )

I use 2 scoops of soy protein in 20 oz skim milk with 4 teaspoons fiber powder (generic benefiber). I really enjoy the soy powder with milk and fiber

As far as the SP ranges, I thing they are way too high, If I were to eat all they day, I would definitely not lose weight
Thank you again for your help.

So you are comfortable with your SP calorie range?
But you are to eat a less amount of fat than the lower end of your SP fat range?
What is your fat intake supposed to be daily?

emoticon and emoticon !! I do the same as Don. It is a method of knowing where you stand with the foods you document. I did go and look at what you can and cannot change and the fats and proteins go along with the calorie intake and can't be changed. You CAN change the calories though which will alter all the daily needs. Open the nutrition tracker and on the tab under the date called tracker options is where you can go. Good luck!!

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I use the recommendations as a starting point and don't worry about varying from that to suit my needs. For instance I know that ideally my carb intake should be way lower than what SP recommends. But I still find the tracking invaluable to gauge how I am doing and just keep my own "dietary allotments" of what works for me in my mind.

'I think I set my diet up wrong but I am not sure. I am just starting out. I Started Sunday but really did not really start until today. Is there a way to adjust the dietart allottment? I have a disorder that keeps me from eating too much fat and where I need to eat plenty of protein, so I was just curious.
