What coffee creamer are you using that has 245 caloires? Mine only has 35.

:D Mine is 35, that's just 7 servings of it. I usually range about 6 -10 servings of coffee creamer depending on the day. I usually put about 3 servings/cup. Weekends are higher, because I get out my big mug for the coffee.

I do get some sugar free french vanilla sometimes, which is only 20!

My liquid calories all come from here - and I am trying to work on that!

1.24
B: Special K Chocolately Delight w. skim milk - 160
L: Black beans, brown rice & tomatos w. chiles - 280
D: Turkey Sloppy Joes, shredded cheese & fries - 520
S: Triscuits w. 1 laughing cow wedge, reeses pieces (I had a week moment!) - 622
Dr: Coffee Creamer - 175

Total for 1.24 - 1757 - Goal is 1600/day. Obviously the Reese's were not good, but I did have several 1400 calorie days last week, and did spin last night. So, don't feel TOO guilty!

Hot out of the oven and smelled delicious too.

I'd like to join in tracking here, if that's ok. I've been tracking on my own, but it will be nice to have a place where I'm accountable. My only hesitation is that I don't want everyone to see that I can't give up my morning coffee from Starbucks :o I'm just going to paste directly from my spreadsheet (not sorted by meal); the first number is calories, the second number is fat grams, and the summary is cals, fat, % cals from fat.

30 0 Crystal light
160 1 Venti Skinny Caramel Macchiatto
320 7 Starbucks Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich
75 6.5 Cocoa Roast Almonds (1/2 serving)
140 2.5 Baked sweet potato fries (1/2 serving of: TJs bag tossed with 1 tsp. olive oil)
300 4.5 Chicken club sandwich (whole wheat sandwich thin, 1 slice turkey bacon, spinach, tomato, 4 oz. bs chicken, ff greek yogurt spread)
100 2.5 Skinny cow ice cream bar
221 3.3 Kashi Go Lean Crunch with Strawberries
50 0 8 oz. V8 fusion light

1396 27.3 17.60%


Edited to add: my goal is really about 1600 cals/day, as I'm a little worried that at this point going down too low might not be healthy for me just yet (I've just recently started). I'd like to stay closer to 1600/day for now and work that slowly down to around 1200-1400.

My only hesitation is that I don't want everyone to see that I can't give up my morning coffee from Starbucks :o

I have Starbucks quite regularly. I generally stick with a tall soy mocha / latte or cappacino. All are under 200 calories, which I find fits into my 1500 calorie days just fine. And the protien in the soy milk fills me up.

:) Your 160 calorie choice seems quite resonable to me, I think Starbucks is only a concern when people order those giant frozen drinks that can come in at 800 calories! Or really large sized flavored (with sugar syrup) drinks can get up in the 400s.

Did you read about their new larger option above venti? The trenta will be a new 31 ounce option. My french press for at home coffee is 32 ounces, so that drink is basically the equivelent to an entire pot of coffee. Jeeeez!

I guess they are only offering it for iced drinks, but still. Ha.

I have a tip for all the peanut butter lovers, buy PB2. It's a powdered form of peanut butter that has been roasted, then pressed to remove all the fats and oils.
2 Tablespoons mixed with 1 Tablespoon water = 2 creamy tablespoons of peanut butter. Only 45 calories, 1.5g total fat. Compared to regular peanut butter that has 200 calories and 16g fat. You can mix this powder into sugar free puddings and make a great dessert too. You can google it here, bellplantation.com

I tried that PB2 once. Didn't love it. But it might not be a bad idea for people who can't stay out of it. For whatever reason, it doesn't tempt me. Now put a jar of nutella in my cabinet and stand back!

Yes! It's CRAZY. I can't even imagine how many cals and fat those frappuccinos will have. Insanity.

My husband is a big iced tea drinker (so am I, but I usually only have it at home) and almost always gets a venti unsweetened iced tea during the warm months. He'll usually buy a second one if we're actually sitting in the store, so I can definitely see him being psyched about the trenta. Thank goodness he gets it without the sugar!

Side note: I looove french press coffee.



So I don't hijack too much on only my second day in this thread... :lol:

Sandi...try using the PB2 in a peanut sauce. It makes a fantastic dip for raw veggies. If you still have the jar, I'll post the recipe. Or you can mix some dry PB2 into chocolate pudding, Yum! Or vanilla.
Bumblebee...If you order it on line, you have to buy 4 jars. Not a problem for me because I love it, but I also asked my local grocery store to stock it. They did and can't keep it on the shelves.

Does anyone use this site to determine calories needed for fat loss? I love how you all write out your calorie intake and I will join you all to be more accountable and try to preplan my meals ahead. I did a step aerobics class for an hour today. I dont want to feel so bad about this today.:?:

omalichand - I would say doing well all day and then going crazy at night would be my #1 problem as well. I try and plan accordingly for that. I Leave room for a snack when I get home, dinner and dessert. If I can have all that, then I tend not to stray as much. I use fitday and try and plan my day ahead of time so I know what I am doing, but I am going to check out the links that Bumblebee posted.

Bobbo - I think I pitched it! Isn't that awful. I do plan on looking at the natural peanut butters this weekend.

Boy, am I bummed out. We normally eat wild game meat but dh purchased a frozen beef bundle of beef for $260.00. One of the boxes had hamburger patties. I made some of the patties tonight and they were soooooooo greasy. I patted off the grease before I ate it, the whole stove top is spattered with grease. What ticked me off is Elk burgers have 140 calories in 3.38 oz. cooked, these grease burgers had 271 calories for the same size. I had zucchini patties I fried in butter Pam with cajun seasonings and a low calorie bun, salsa

Started tracking fiber today too, so the numbers, in order, are calories, grams fat, grams fiber (and in the sum, % cals from fat).

I've been trying to make sure I keep my fat % up in an acceptable range and have most of it come from good fats, which is why I've been eating the trail mix most days (it's 80% nuts with a few chocolate chips and dried cherries). Ditto with the pasta - I purposely browned the super lean turkey in olive oil. The trail mix put me a little higher calorie-wise than I wanted to be today (why does eating at the top of my range seem "bad"?), but I was hungry anyway.

Fashionjunkie...I almost forgot about Flatouts. I used to eat them all the time, sometimes I'd bake them until crisp, top with cinnamon applesauce and sugar free cool whip for a dessert. Other times I bake until crisp, top with pizza sauce, turkey peperoni, and little cheese, and zap in microwave. It makes a big individual pizza and low in calories.

Bobolink, I will try that with the Flatouts! I had tried a pizza before but didn't bake it until crisp first so it was way too soft. I haven't tried to make pizzas with them since, but I am going to try again soon. Thanks! :)

I just love the flat out wraps!

So today was my first day counting calories in a long time. I knew I was over eating but not by how much! Today I caught myself several times trying to eat when I wasn't really hungry. Especially going for the bread and stuff. I wanted to try and eat around 1200 cals but it's going to take a little while working down to that. First thing I need to do is cut out the OJ in the morning. I get plenty of fruit all day and I really don't need the acidity.

Breakfast-
2 c OJ - 220 cal
Harvest Muffin - 182

Morning Snack -
Baguette - 150 cal
Cheese - 110 cal

Lunch -
Salad with Feta and oil - 220
Hummus and carrots - 20
2 Wasa Crackers with cheese - 150

Afternoon Snack -
2 mandarins - 80
kiwi - 45
Harvest Muffin - 180

Dinner -
Fake chicken patty with tomato sauce and sauteed veggies - 300
Veggie Broth (because I was starving) - 35

Total - 1690!! Wow. Way too much.

Cals burned - 1100 - hour and 20 min running. At least that's my little piece of saving grace.

I keep forgetting to mention my exercise! I've been to the gym three times this week. Just doing fast (for me) walking on the treadmill for 30 min/day. Not much, but this is truly the first time since my first year of college that I've exercised regularly, so I'm starting slowly. It makes me sweat and the treadmill estimates my heart rate at around 155 while I'm walking, so it's doing something. I'm participating in the February exercise challenge, so I expect to make some progress this month.

Megems...I caught a Dr. Oz show where he was talking about how dehydrating coffee is. He said for every cup of coffee you drink, we needed to follow it up with one cup of water. So I've been doing that and do not drink gallons of coffee like I used to. I found myself running to the bathroom too often and it wasn't worth it. One good thing, I'm not having trouble getting my quota of water in.My January goal was to reduce the amount of coffee I drink, and I think I have gotten a lot better!

This was from the allrecipes.com site. It sounds really good, will make it later today.
P.S. Update, I just made this. I didn't have tahini but substituted 1 Tablespoon mixed PB2 (peanut butter) and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. It's good and has a fantastic kick to it. It made 14.75 oz @ 33 calories per ounce. Chick...I googled Tahini and they said peanut butter with no sugar will work, sesame oil or take whole sesame seeds (unroasted) and grind them up. I don't use tahini enough to buy it again. The last jar I had to throw, it was so old. Maybe I can buy another jar and freeze portions of it.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Ingredients:
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 (4 ounce) jar roasted red peppers
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Directions:
1. In an electric blender or food processor, puree the chickpeas, red peppers, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt. Process, using long pulses, until the mixture is fairly smooth, and slightly fluffy. Make sure to scrape the mixture off the sides of the food processor or blender in between pulses. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (The hummus can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated. Return to room temperature before serving.)
2. Sprinkle the hummus with the chopped parsley before serving.

Yesterday was not a good day food-wise. Because of bad weather, my work brought in Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch and then that night I had sushi, wine, and dessert with my girlfriends. It was good, but made me feel like crap and I am back at it today. I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far! :)

Chick...I googled Tahini and they said peanut butter with no sugar will work, sesame oil or take whole sesame seeds (unroasted) and grind them up. I don't use tahini enough to buy it again. The last jar I had to throw, it was so old. Maybe I can buy another jar and freeze portions of it.

I made it this afternoon, and it was really good! I did have tahini in the fridge - I don't use it that often, but it seems to have kept ok so far. It did take me about 15 minutes and a lot of elbow grease to reincorporate all the oil into the paste though! :lol: I used 1 Tbs. of tahini and 1 Tbs. of olive oil in mine... because while I really like tahini, I also LOVE olive oil and wanted that flavor. So mine was a bit higher cal/fattier than yours, but 2 Tbs. of the hummus was still only ~50cal and 1.6g fat. And all good fat, so I'm ok with that! I had it on a sandwich thin with 2 oz. turkey and 1/3 of a small, thinly sliced zucchini. Super tasty, only 200 cals for 7.4g fiber, and it was perfect to eat before going to the gym. Thanks so much for the recipe!

1940 81.8 30.7 37.95%

We went out to dinner at a Burmese restaurant tonight... and I have NO idea about the calories in the ginger and green papaya salads I ate. They're almost entirely fruit/veg, but definitely have peanuts and peanut oil in them. I limited myself to the salads (though I ate plenty of each), 1/2 of a dumpling and 1 tiny bite of my husband's duck. I've broadly estimated the cals, fat and fiber... the fiber is probably a good estimate, and the calories may be an overestimate; the fat is what I'm really not sure about (those peanuts and oil add up), and the sodium is undoubtedly through the roof. I wanted to have a higher calorie day today since the last two days I was way too low, but this was a little overboard!!! Drinking a ton of water tonight to wash out all that sodium.

Edit: OK, I calculated the salads based on these recipes: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E02E0DD1E3FF935A2575BC0A9669C8B 63 The calories look right, but I need to revise the fat and fiber up. Small consolation: only 8.8 grams of the fat are sat fat.

Rant: I am REALLY upset about that steak I ate. Seriously upset. I bought a steak for my husband so that he could still eat some of the things he enjoys even though I'm trying to eat better. I got myself some salmon, but when I opened it tonight it smelled terrible - so it went in the garbage. My husband wanted me to share the steak he'd grilled, but I made a pita with turkey and hummus to go with my veggies instead. Then, as I'm eating, he cut off a piece of his steak and put it on my plate. I told him I didn't want it, and tried to give it back, but he wouldn't let me. He actually said "It would mean so much to me if you would eat it." So I ate it.

I have been trying SO HARD to do this - to eat well and exercise and lose weight - and my efforts are paying off. I know my husband isn't intentionally trying to sabotage me, but this kind of thing is getting really frustrating. He's always asking me "Do you want some of this steak/pizza/ice cream?" in reference to whatever he's eating. OF COURSE I want some. But I'm not going to have it, because it's not good for me and I am determined to stay on plan.

I don't blame him for being frustrated that I'm no longer willing to enjoy the same tasty-but-unhealthy food with him as I used to (given that I've gained 70+ pounds since we met 10 years ago, we clearly enjoyed a lot of bad food together). And I know he's proud of me for my efforts - he often tells me he is. I just wish he could understand that it's a constant battle for me to avoid all the food around me that I used to eat, and that him trying to guilt me into eating that kind of stuff makes it that much harder.

Sorry for ranting, I'm just really upset about this tonight.


Edit: Even though I'm frustrated by this issue, I just want to mention that my husband is the sweetest, most loving man ever. Truly. I don't want to give the wrong impression to anyone. He is always supportive of everything I do... I think he just doesn't realize how difficult this is for me, and that his actions are making it harder.

Good Morning, I'll be back later today to fill in my menu. I'm not as organized as you girls that post your whole menu in the morning. Since I'm retired, I don't know what we're eating until I make it, it's something that's baked or crock pot.
Chick...I was going to ask you about your numbers ahead of your food. I've got the first one figured out, calories, the last one, 1.5 ounce steak. What's the center numbers? Also, I just checked Fitday because I thought 183 calories was a lot for that little bite. 1.5 lean only is only 84 calories. Or maybe I read your numbers wrong. I laughed when I saw the recording of licking frosting and caramel off the spoon.
I've been known to sample something by chewing it up, then spitting it in the garbage.:o Don't laugh, all good cooks have to sample the foods they prepare! Dietcoke...Are these made with 1/2 tators and 1/2 pureed cauliflower? I have a cheat day too, Sundays. I like 'my almighty' day.
Kaspara...where do you buy these? Are they made with applesauce? All Natural Fat Free Donut (These are AMAZING. Only 100 calories and about the size of a regular donut)



1/2 cup skinny mashed potato
183 13.5 0 1.5 oz. grilled steak

Thank you. I was just upset because it feels even harder to stay on target when someone's trying to force you to eat "bad" things. I'm happy to still buy/make him the foods he enjoys, so I need him to just let me eat the way *I* need to! I know he means well, though, and I do know that a few bites of steak isn't going to derail me. I'm stronger than that :)

Sorry, I know those numbers are hard to follow. I don't use a tracking program; I track everything in Excel, and so just paste directly from my spreadsheet. The first number is calories, the second is grams fat, the third is grams fiber. And then in the summary, the percentage is % cals from fat. I usually use the nutritional info on packaging or in the stickied link here, or occasionally do a search for nutrition info for a particular food when I can't find it here. Since I work full time and am also a full-time PhD student, I buy as many of my foods pre-chopped/pre-portioned in packages with nutritional info as I can for convenience - so that helps me to keep my counts accurate. For instance, from last night - sweet potatoes already cut into sticks from Trader Joe's, brussel sprouts already packaged in a bag from Harris Teeter, neither with anything added to them. It's more expensive, but right now I'll take the convenience of it (and I think I'm still saving money considering how many meals I used to eat out for convenience).

I looked up the steak and then overestimated from the numbers I saw. The steak wasn't lean, and I'd rubbed it down with spices and olive oil before my husband put it on the grill! The piece he gave me WAS a leaner part of the steak but surrounded by a thick outer layer of fat (which I cut off, as I've always done). Sadly, it wasn't one bite... it was about 4 bites.

Spitting something out when you're tasting while cooking is a good idea! I'll have to try to get into that habit.

Its really hard for me at times because I have a big history with massive binges.. I now have some control but I still don't completely trust myself. He will be eating cookies or chips and will ask me if I want some of his, I usually say no because I usually can't fit it in my plan for the day, but he will keep on insisting and tempting me and will not give up until I have some, I just say no now and it does get a little easier after awhile. But as for the steak don't be too hard on yourself we're only human.. and like Bac0s said.. tomorrow just get back on the wagon and you'll be fine :)

About planning the day...
I usually edit throughout the day... I write a plan out for the day because if I don't I am known to binge/ mess up badly when I don't have some sort of guide to follow. :)

This not only keeps me OP, but I love to see what others are eating. My breakfast and lunches are usually the same, I don't like having to think about those two meals. My big breakfast keeps me full until lunch and the vegetable soups I make keep me full until supper. I try to have a raw veggies/peanut butter dip or ranch on one of my snack, otherwise I'm very low on calories. Did any of you buy the PB2 yet? (Peanut butter)

Bobbolink:

I actually get them online from this health/diet site called lindasdietdelites

they're very sweet, and I usually have them with a nonfat milk latte after dinner as a treat. They aren't exactly like a donut though, they're more cake-like (baked, not friend) and only have 100 calories. I've tried the chocolate/vanilla with sprinkles and the cinnamon. I love all of them but the chocolate one is my favorite. They're also REALLY big compared to some other 100 calorie treats and really, really satisfying. I've also tried some other products from this site and found them to be very good.

Also, I'm curious about PB2, is it any good?

Thank you very much, Bumblebee. I'm really glad to know it's not just me, and that it will get easier. My husband was really awesome tonight - when we went out to dinner, and the waitress asked about appetizers, I declined but my husband ordered one... shrimp cocktail, specifically so I could eat a couple w/o guilt! He'd normally order something much higher in calories/fat. I was so touched I got teary-eyed, lol.

Oh.. man today wasn't good... I weigh myself every Saturday and today I lost 0.4lbs which is better than nothing I guess ---I bet I just reversed that loss from this though.. :( ---..
I woke up pretty late and realised I have a lot of baking to do and little time, So I didn't have much time to think about food choices because I was stuck baking all day for big parties coming up and I had to make cake.. rice krispies, cookies... I was bound to mess up :( I made the cake put it in the oven but licked the bowl, spoon.. everything :stress:and I couldn't stop myself from going into binge mode straight after which explains the rice cakes. I feel so out of control I'm not too sure what to do right now.. I still want to stuff my face mad with junk! I think it has to do with the fact I am really dehydrated today all I had was a cup of milk and nothing else yet so I think I need to drink a lot of water to get out of this binge-mode.. No matter what, I must do better tomorrow and get back on the wagon!

Good Sunday morning to ya all!
Sundays are my day off so no posting for me.
Baco...just wanted to comment on your hot dogs. My DH loves Hebrew national hotdogs but we quit buying them because of the high fat content. Then we discovered the 99% fat free, oh my gosh these are good. We always have an extra package of these in our freezer when we want hot dogs. I buy the lower calorie hot dog buns too and it makes a really low calorie entree.
I'll continue with my menu on Monday, not that it changes very much.
Have a skinny day.

I actually didn't have any! There was a bowl of plain strawberries and a can of whip cream so I settled with that and it was delish! On my way out they handed out a gift basket of cupcakes and cake slices left over and now they are stuck here with me in the house! I am going to only save a few things and try to give most away.

Bumblebee - nice job not having any of the sweets at the party today! It's really tough in those situations.

Went out to dinner for V-day tonight with my husband, and so had to try to count for all the ingredients I suspect were in what I ate. I think the calories are probably pretty close, but I'm hoping I over-estimated the fat (I just assumed 2 T. olive oil, 2 T. butter, and 2 T. cream in the roasted squash dish). Still, I'm really happy with how I did today - I controlled my eating early in the day so that I could have dinner, wine and dessert tonight, and this planned high-calorie day came in a little lower than I thought it would (my goal was to keep it under 2000 cals). I also managed to fit in a good workout in the early evening, so I burned a bit too. I've been stuck right around 261 lbs for the past two days, so I'm hoping a little that my higher cal meal will kick me into gear again like my one last week did. We'll see tomorrow on the scale!

I have a question for everyone, how many grams of protein do you eat daily?

Ok I binged again.. in the afternoon. I lost count.. but I had all junk again (cupcakes, cookies, chips, ice cream, soda ect) To the point where it was painful because I ate so much, I no doubt can say I went over 3,000 *sigh* This is getting out of control. I was super stressed out and I am huge emotional eater.. I am so sick of the guilty feeling after the binge. I wrote down how bad I felt right after I binged and am going to read it when ever I am going to binge again in the future. I'm afraid to weigh myself tomorrow I know its going to be unpleasant to see the gain but no matter what I am fiercely determined to stop this tomorrow!!!

Bumblebee, you can do it. You are SO close to your goal.

And please forgive yourself for the sweets - don't let guilt pull you down. Reading your post made me think of song lyrics that I've been finding very inspirational as I've begun this journey the past month. From All These Things That I've Done by The Killers, "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier." We're not perfect, we're not robots who can function without error day after day after day, but we CAN do this and we WILL.

I'm not sure, as I haven't been tracking it. But, I typically eat about 6-7 oz. of lean meat (usually bs chicken or ground turkey) per day, and that can't be more than... maybe 40g protein? I sometimes have some nuts as well, and the skim milk in my latte on weekday mornings, so that adds a little. But other than that my diet is just grains, veg, fruit, and a little junk, so I can't imagine I get anything close to 70g per day. :o

Chick: Thanks:hug:, I did weigh myself today and In a week I gained 2.6lbs from binging a few times.. I'm not very happy with that but at least I stopped it before it got much worse 2.6 isn't too much so I can hopefully have that gone within the next 2 weeks as long as I stick to my 1200 a day. You're so right about the robots thing.. we're only human. I feel I am in the right mindset again to continue my journey to lose the last of this weight!

Thank you Bumblebee :) Today was another rough day though... got TOM this morning, so at least that explains how I've been feeling. We went out to dinner unexpectedly with my brother-in-law and his fiance (this after I'd already had a Wendy's sandwich earlier out of convenience), and I ate a LOT but chose as smartly as I could - had water instead of diet soda, didn't partake in appetizers, asked how the veggies were prepared, asked for the fish without the butter, had a fruit plate for dessert. The one extravagance I allowed myself was the glass of wine. Then I got home, added it all up, and found my fat and fiber for the day were way too low - so I had a 1/2 serving of raw cashews and a fiber one bar. Both fat and fiber were still too low, my calories too high, and sodium today through the roof. Sigh. I wish I hadn't had that wine.

Chick: Don't be too hard on yourself you did great with the restaurant situation. The appetizers were always what really ruined me when going out (Its like you can make a meal alone out of those appetizers!) Don't worry about the wine you need to treat yourself once in awhile, just get back on the wagon tomorrow and you will be fine. We all have those days. :)

I just started my TOM today, but for me the cravings come about 3 days before and have thankfully already stopped the day I start my period. I whoke up really late so I only ate 3 times today, when normally I snack between meals.
I went out to dinner in the evening with my friend. But we went to a small health-food restaurant so it wasnīt difficult to find something healthy and delicious

Breakfast: Cheerios with low-fat plain yoghurt (250 calories)
Lunch: 2 bean and veggie burgers with spelt bread and homemade low-fat yoghurt sauce (500 calories)
Dinner: Mixed whole-grain rice and barley with tofu-meat and vegetables (stir-fry)
500 calories (totally guessimating)
black coffee and tea
All in all about 1250 calories
I did one exercise video in the evening (fit in your jeans by friday)
Itīs really fun and motivating to read what other people are eating:)!

haha okey good;) Thatīs a good idea instead of trying to memorize everything. Last night I actually couldnīt fall asleep as I was so hungry, I felt dizzy and light-headed even though I ate 1300 calories in the day. I had worked out really really hard (went to a marathon 2 hour spin class), so I had some cheerios and managed to fall asleep at 5 in the night:?:
Definitely will be upping my calories on the days where I go to marathon spinning (mondays and wednesdays).
I count my calories from midnight till midnight as I sometimes work in the night, so the cheerios at 3 last night are coming in todayīs calories

So today I have eaten:

the dry cheerios in the night when I couldnīt fall asleep: 150 cal
B: yoghurt and cheerios (surprise surprise): 250 cal
L: buckwheat noodles with vegetables, egg and chicken breast (went out for lunch): 550 cal

Yes, I drank my calories today. 5 glasses of wine over the course of six hours. I expect tomorrow and Friday will involve similar alcohol consumption. This is what happens when I go to conferences and see colleagues and we order drink after drink after drink. I will be trying to eat healthy otherwise... and will be back to normal on Saturday.

105 0.4 3.1 Banana
240 5 5 Cliff Bar
50 0 1.5 TJs apricot dried fruit bar

410 22.2 4.2 4 oz. filet mignon with grilled zucchini, squash and asparagus; sauteed spinach; small piece of italian bread

1112 31.8 27.9 25.74%


I asked how the veggies were prepared before ordering my dinner, and was told that only olive oil was used. But, I'm sure there was butter on something on that plate (I'm betting the spinach), as it did a number on my stomach - and olive oil doesn't do that to me, just dairy fat. Grrrrrr.

Snack: 3 Starburst 60
Dinner: PB sandwich, baby carrots 360
