Wow... glad I didn't give in and order a pizza last night. Weighed in at 297.1 today!

Breakfast:

16 whole grain Wheat Thins
1 oz light cheddar cheese
small apple

I got up later than usual today, but that's all right. I get up most days at 6 to get to class by 8. I have become the one thing I dread the most; a morning person.

Ok, so gave myself a conscoius major day off- wrote in my journal that I don't get another one until the the 30th. Surprisingly, the chinese food I ordered was not a lot of food in volume- just way too many calories. Oh well.

Lunch:
1 oz light cheese
mushroom noodle bowl

Dinner:
1 pint vegetable lo mein
8 pieces crab rangoon
1 pint egg drop soup
2 vegetable egg rolls
Coke

Snack:
baked chips
light french onion dip

Totals: 2828 cal, 130 gms/fat, 12.5 gms/fiber

Yea, it was awful... but if I keep my calories for the rest of the week between 1500 and 1700 calories, then I'll be fine. With all the extra exercise I'll be getting this week, I'm not worried too much about it.

It's amazing how many calories can be packed into restaurant food and how easy it is to eat too much of it!

Hey, have you decided to not be vegetarian anymore?

I'm half vegetarian/half pescatarian. I eat fish once in a blue moon, but now I have to eat it more often just because of protein issues. I did buy veggie burgers, almonds, pumpkin seeds, etc today, so over the next few weeks we'll see how often I really need to eat the fish. My goal is to not be eating fish anymore by December; I managed to cut out red meat, chicken, and pork since I became a vegetarian for the final time last November, and have learned what kind of soymilk doesn't have a weird aftertaste. I'm not sure if I ever want to go vegan, but I do want to be cruelty-free (and am helping my family find meat alternatives and local cruelty-free meat suppliers). So, extremely long story short, the fish is a protein technicality. Don't expect to be eating it on a regular basis.

Nacho Quakes are rice cake snacks made by, you guessed it, Quaker. Usually in the chip or cereal aisle and come in like 8 flavors or so, from Nacho to Ranch to Chocolate. Not a lot of fiber I've come to find, though, so usually I buy their brand of soy crisps. Still no fiber, but the protein is definitely a plus. Be careful, because what looks like a snack size bag holds 6 servings in it.

Your lunch today is one of my favorites. Mmmm, hummus!

So I guess we need a pescetarian thread now too, right?

I find the Wikipedia definition of pescetarianism to be curious, but the references are pretty solid.

You haven't asked and I don't want to appear pushy, but I just thought I'd offer that if you need help in finding vegetarian proteins that are small fridge friendly, I am here to help! It is VERY possible to meet protein needs on a vegetarian or vegan diet!

Any help anyone can give me that doesn't require too much fridge space, I'm all for it! The last few times that I've tried to be vegetarian (7th and 9th grade) I ended up gaining 20 lbs by binging on stuff like chicken nuggets and bologna and steak (eww......). It never lasted more than 4 months, but I've been veggie for almost a whole year! So yea, anyone who has some creative ideas for protein that don't need to be refrigerated, throw it out there, I'm grateful!

Man, my eating schedule today got way thrown off by the fact that I was in working on my calculus lab at school with my study group until 8. Basically I had breakfast at 10:30 and then lunch/dinner combo at 9. It felt like I was eating forever just to get enough calories. Ugh.

Breakfast:
1 slice honey flax toast - 100 cals
1 tbsp white chocolate pb - 90 cals
1 strawberry-raspberry yogurt - 120 cals

Lunch/Dinner:
1/2 Tomato Basil Mozzarella stuffed focaccia - 413 cals
1 whole wheat pita - 120 cals
2 tbsp hummus - 50 cals
4.5 oz homemade tzatziki - 60 cals
4 Kashi stoneground whole grain crackers - 130 cals
1 tomato - 20 cals

Dessert:
1 cup lowfat peach kefir - 174 cals
1 orange - 62 cals


Sounds like a lot of food and a lot of bready type things, and it was. I was way too beat to prepare anything and didn't want to eat 2 of my frozen dinners because that's way too expensive. Oh well.

Ok, I ate the chocolate to try to get up to at least 1500 calories... but apparently that didn't work! I was also under on fat, too. I ate a lot today, but somehow underate at the same time. Weird...

I also got in 30 minutes of cardio walking uphill to class (I will NEVER get over the evil hills) and climbed 4 flights of stairs 3 times doing laundry. It hurt a LOT.

Lindsey,

You are looking awesome

I am back to trying not to eat meat and heavily limiting my dairy. I had a pretty successful week last week while at a work conference. It was pretty easy except for the day when the lunch was chicken enchiladas, beef enchiladas, beans with bacon, rice and chicken fajitas. I asked if they had alternatives and they provided me with a few ok but not great alternatives.

Today was the following
Ultimate meal shake with banana, strawberry and a little vanilla whey protein powder
Tj's high fiber cereal with almond milk
Baby Carrots
Peanut butter sandwich
Beans, rice and a green veggie medley
popcorn
Garlic and herb pizza with soy cheese, spaghetti sauce, gimme lean sausage (with italian spices), roasted peppers and mushrooms.
cantaloupe

I have to say that I was pretty impressed with the soy cheese and the gimme lean sausage. I normally HATE (hate hate hate hate) soy meat substitutes but I figured if I spiced it right, the gimme lean sausage might be edible. It actually tasted pretty good. I had never had soy cheese before but it didn't taste bad either. The soy cheese did contain some casein but I figured that it was pretty minimal for its dairy content.

It was another day where it was like 4 pm and I'd barely gotten to 800 calories, so I made myself a taco salad. Should of thought for lunch instead of the wrap (note: never put more stuff in a tortilla than it can handle, otherwise its a mess you have to eat with a fork).
