Ellie - how much protein do you try to have per day (and per meal) while watching your carbs?

MONDAY 4/28/03

My phrase for the day is a new way I'd like to try to look at things. "POINTS = DOLLARS". I would not spend more dollars than I had, there are things I don't have enough money for that I might like to buy. So I want to focus on looking at points this way.

EXERCISE
20 minute treadmill
20 minutes bike
10 minutes easy walking
28 minutes weights

BREAKFAST
egg = 2
bread = 2
jam = 1

LUNCH
soup = 4
salad = 0
parmesan = 1
nuts = 15

DINNER
veggie soup = 2
crackers = 2

SNACK
salty mix = ??

DAILY TOTAL = ??

Reflections ~ well today I way overspent my dollars. I have thrown out the remainder of the salty mix. It was totally the thing I guard against - mindless eating.

Rabbit - I like the points=dollars thing, you are so right! I will give it a try too To answer your question about the protein/carbs, in the book Protein Power you do a series of calculations which will determine your lean body weight, ideal weight, etc. For me, based on my lean body mass, I must consume a minimum of 68 grams of protein to maintain my lean body mass. I can have more than that but that is my minimum. After calculating over the course of several days I figured that I am getting that much and probably was all along so I am not counting anymore. The carbs went up a bit to 30 per day. I try to average it out as much as possible so it is 7-10 carbs per meal, closer to the 7 mark if you want snacks that have carbs. I can have a more fruit choices on this plan but usually just stick to berries since I love them and they are the lowest in carbs and on the gylcimic (spell?) index.
