3 hours of shoveling snow and almost that long tracking what I ate
Thursday, January 19, 2012
Ok, that's a little exaggerated, but it may have been over an hour. It took forever in part because I had to enter all the ingredients for recipes, then divide it into servings and enter the info per serving. I eat a lot of little things as snacks which took time as well. And the only thing I entered was macronutrients. The most difficult part about it is that I rarely use recipes and never measure anything so making meals took a lot longer than usual, too. It's not always easy to find the right food and sometimes when I found it there was no nutrition info with that entry. Tracking probably kept me from eating as much as I otherwise would have just because I did not want to enter even more stuff, LOL.
So, I think this was the last day in a while I'll be tracking food. Still, to get an idea of what my macronutrient levels are on a typical day it was useful.
I had three meals and two snacks. Total calories were 2660, definitely on the low side for me, carbs 232grams, fat 154 grams and protein 105 grams.
