Happy Birthday PHAT !!!
Hi! I hope it's ok if I join here :-) Im back on the wagon (again and again and again) after gaining back over 70lbs, again again again. Calorie counting always works for me. My biggest downfall is emotional eating and I'm working to get those triggers under control.
B: One boiled egg, one piece wheat toast, one slice provolone cheese
L: 1c couscous salad with olive oil/lemon dressing, 1 cup pineapple
S: Light chocolate protein shake
D: 6oz baked salmon, 1c white rice, 1/2 cup corn, 1 medium tomato
S: cucumber, tomato and balsamic vinegar salad
Calories: 1405 Fat: 38grams Carbs: 177grams Protein: 98grams
Id like to get my carbs down, my protein up, and my fiber up. My fiber is around 18grams for the day today.

L: chicken rice & broccoli casserole - 300

kinda low, but its a general count.. I think im gonna eat about 1500-1600 calories today

D- 6oz shrimp 168, 3 cups raw spinach 21, 2 tbs caesar vinegarette dressing 70, 1 serving oatmeal bread 110 ( 369 calories)
S- 4 oz sliced apple 59, 1 tbl natural PB 100 (159 calories)
3 mile brisk walk for exercise.
Still low :( I need to tweak this. As it stands when my weight falls I won't have any calories to safely cut to continue losing and since my daily exercise is already at least 45 minutes of vigorous work per day that will be kind of hard to use instead of cutting. I would like my maint to be 1500-1700 calories per day and 4 days per week of exercise. I think that is doable.
Hey PHAT--how do you maintain eating low calories and not getting hungry/binging?
Hey everyone! I'm just begining calorie counting and would like to join your thread. I entered all this into the dailyplate, and i'm happy with the amount of calories, just shocked at the percent of carbs. I get all hung up on the ratios and I should really just aim for staying in the range I'd like to and then work on that. I worry about to many things, and forget I have to start some where and just keep it basic.

With how healthy your daily menu looks I don't think carbs should be that big a concern. Just my personal opinion :) If you were eating a huge amount of starchy stuff or any refined grains/sugars/what-have-you then I could see them being something to worry about.
Hey upload2...it looks like most of your carbs are coming from fruits & veggies anyway...so I wouldnt stress too much over those :-) Good luck!
DCchick, we have the same goal weight!
