OK, just for the heck of it, I went into Fitday and put in everything that's on the list in the suggested quantities, just to see what the nutritional info would look like. Here's what I came up with:

grams cals %total
Total: 1518
Fat: 51 462 31%
Sat: 11 98 7%
Poly: 7 63 4%
Mono: 26 235 16%
Carbs: 247 789 54%
Fiber: 50 0 0%
Protein: 56 223 15%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

I did modify mine quite a bit - I didn't include salmon or turkey because I'm a vegetarian and I upped the soy (tofu) to 4 oz because this is what I usually take in a smoothie. I also reduced some of the quantities to suit my needs, like 1/2 cup blueberries instead of 1 cup because I know I wouldn't eat that much. Still, this is a pretty good count, even for someone like me, who is 5' and small boned. I think the only thing I'd be worried about is the protein grams - 56 sounds a bit low to me, especially since I'm used to eating around 70.

I'm anxious to get the books now...
