Default Post what you ate yesterday (with cal counts!)

I thought it might be fun for everyone to post exactly what they journalled yesterday (even if you had a "bad" day) to see what other calorie counters were up to.

Here's mine:

Breakfast:
Vanilla and Almond Special k - 1 1/ cups: 220 cal
Fat Free milk - 1 cup - 80 cal
Water- 8 oz

Breakfast total: 300 cal

Morning Snack:

Coffee and Creme Brulee Coffee Creamer: 122 cal
water: 24 oz

Morning Snack Total: 122 cal

Lunch:
Eating Right Turkey Lasagna: 370 cal
Diet Pepsi: 12 oz: 0 cal

Lunch total:370 cal

Afternoon Snack:
Diet Pepsi: 12 oz: 0 cal
Cahsews: 1/3 cup: 299 cal

Snack total: 299 cal

Dinner:
Eating Right Chicken Poblano meal: 310 calories
water- 8 oz

Dinner total: 310 calories

Evening Snack:

water: 16 oz
Hunts Snack Pack chocolate pudding: 120 cal
diet pepsi: 12 oz: 0 cal

Snack total: 120 cal

Daily Total: 1521 cal

This is a typical day for me in some respects, atypical in others. I try to only eat one frozen meal for either lunch or dinner, and I usually add a lot more fresh fruits and veggies, and drink more water. I hurt my back yesterday, though, so I stuck to things my nine year old could handle making/bringing to me. The calorie count is about what I usually aim for, though I didn't have any excercise at all due to being flat on my back.

If someone has a fitday.com account and has made it public and linked it here, you can click on the link in their profile and see exactly what they eat ... any day.

And no ... yesterday was not typical

This is semi-typical for me (my FitDay is clickable on the left, too). I usually try to get 1400 kcals a day, and probably should have had another snack at some point:

Breakfast Tea Spiced Apple Oatmeal w/ flax and chia seeds
Snack 1 clementine and a big mug of green tea
Lunch Honey & Cashew Butter Sandwich on low-cal whole wheat & 2 c. mixed veggie salad (my salads have 12-15 veggies)
Snack bottle of organic coconut water w/ pulp
Dinner Salmon-Veggie bake w/ tomato, red onion, and sunchokes, & 2 c. mixed veggie salad w/ Dijon-Horseradish dressing

total: 1139

I have a question though, my fitday (I use the pc version) says I burn between 3000-3400cals a day (bigger number is my weekend cals) but I usually eat 1400-1800 cals a day. Is this deficit (1600-2000) no good? I was eating even less in the beginning because I wasn't used to frequent meals and wasn't calorie counting, so I didn't know how little I was actually getting in. I don't want to stall my metabolism :-/

zimzim, I thin if you're losing weight consistently and you aren't feeling hungry, then you're probably at the right level. I stopped losing weight a couple of weeks ago when I let my calories drift down around 1200 a day (The Daily Plate suggest 1865 cals for me for 2 lbs/week loss). I've upped my calories to around 1500 and the weight is just falling off me again. (as an aside, I think this is why diets haven't worked for me in the past - I was eating too little!). At this point, I'm going to stay at around 1500 because I'm losing and because I feel like I'll throw up if I eat any more! (Really, I'm pretty much NEVER hungry anymore). If I hit another plateau, I'll start playing with the calories again.

For me a defecit of between 800-1200 calories a day equals about a 1.5-3 # a week. I had 2 weeks of being sick and was very dehydrated and a couch potato, so it through my progress off a bit, but no I'm back on track with the water and movement.

I agree, if you are still losing and not starving, keep doing what you're doing. You will eventually have to cut down on the calories when you get lower in weight, so take advantage of the higher calories while you have them!

I average between 1050 and 1200 cal a day. 1050 causes great weight loss for me, I am very active and I still feel good and energetic with that amount.

breakfast:
special k berries cereal: 180 cals
skim milk: 45 cals

lunch:
yogurt - 35 cals
banana - 125 cals (is this even right? i found so many different cals.. oh well, better to overestimate than under!)
granola bar - 100 cals

*fyi, my "lunch" was only banana and yogurt during my break at work. the granola bar was a snack before i started because if i go more than 3 hours eating my blood glucose level spikes and i get headaches... and this was a 12:30 - 5:30 shift

dinner:
stirfry w/ 3/4 cup indian basmati rice - 500 cals (i overestimated just in case!)

snacks:
popcorn - 300 (overestimated once again, just in case!)
one slice french bread - 180 - (yes.. i caved in on this one! and i overestimated JUST IN CASE!)

*i have an early shift tomorrow (7:30am) so i usually have more healthy snacks such as fruits or veggies.. but i'm going to bed early and decided to spend some of my extra calories on popcorn which i've been craving for the past 2 weeks! but it's okay, because i'm still 10g under my fat and 228 calories under for my day!

I'm a really boring eater. I'm perfectly happy eating the same (or very similar) things every day.

Breakfast is always a bowl of cereal with skim milk. (190-230 cal)

Lunch is almost always 2 chicken burgers:
- 2 burgers (Compliments Jr. brand @ 50 cal ea.)
- 2 slices whole grain toast cut in half for buns (150-170 cal)
- portion of laughing cow cheese divided for both (65 cal)
- lettuce (small amount, don't count)
- teeny bit of cal-reduced mayo (30 cal)
- mustard
- some sort of fruit (80-100 cal)
TOTAL for lunch: 425-465. On the rare day I have something different, I try to keep my lunch to no more than 450 cal.

Snack: Some sort of Fiber 1 granola bar, eaten after the day's workout. 140-150 cal.

Supper is almost always a meat (usually chicken, or lean ground beef in a casserole/sauce), a starch (potatoes, whole wheat pasta, brown rice) and a bunch of veggies. Supper calorie count is generally between 450-600.

So by supper, by daily calorie count is between 1205-1445. I've been zig zagging, and my daily goal ranges from 1300-1650, so those extra calories each day come from an extra snack or two, maybe a glass of chocolate milk, an extra portion of a favourite at supper. That sort of thing.

Told you I'm a boring eater LOL
