Hope that helps.

It does thank you.

3 cans V8- 90 calories
2 slices turkey-100 calories
1 yoghurt - 100 calories
1 cheeseburger- ~600 calories (rounded up)

Total:890 calories. To make it about 1000, my goal for the day, I'm thinking I'm going to have another yoghurt around 10. Also probably lots of green tea, since I used up my calories more quickly than I would have liked. My family was all having dinner together, and I figured I ought to eat with them. Honestly, I was surprised by how many calories were in it. Ah, well. Tomorrow is another, 1200 calorie day.

Oh boy...went to 4th of July party AND my mom cooked at home, so today is not a menu I'm proud of!

This stuff was eaten arbitrarily throughout the day, so I'm not going to do meal breakdowns!

Veggie burger [300]
2 small cheese sandwiches [400]
Baked potato [300]
Chocolates [400?]
Cake with ice cream [????]

Total: Let's say 3,400? That would be if I ate 2,000 calories worth of cake and ice cream. Unlikely, but not impossible!

Lauren Salmon Salad sounds delish! I had salmon last night and it was yummy for sure. I need to try to eat salmon more regularly. The shrimp with avacado sounds delish, too. You have a rockin' menu today! Have you been eating broccoli sprouts very long or is this a new food for you? I received an email from Eat This Not That and it mentioned broccoli sprouts. Yesterday I went to Earth Fare (one of our healthy grocery stores) and picked up a package of the broccoli sprouts. I plan on using them this week in place of lettuce on my sandwiches. I looked at the website on the package and it says that John Hopkins University has done studies on broccoli sprouts and their cancer fighting properties. It sounds like it's better for you than lettuce. If I like the way it tastes on my sandwich, I might make the switch. I bought the 100% broccoli sprouts. Here's their site in case anyone has time to do extra reading http://www.broccosprouts.com/default.asp

Have felt sick most of the day so haven't eaten much:

Fat-free natural yoghurt with some strawberries and blueberries tossed in.

Small, and I mean small, chicken salad with no dressing. It was literally the size of a saucer, this salad.

Nothing. I think if I eat I'll throw up :3

I've drunk lots of water today and some tea, but otherwise I don't think I can keep much down. Urrgh, brb bed x.x

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July (if you celebrate).
I did celebrate, and it wasn't as OP as I think it should be. Too much cider and beer >_<

But anyways, I'm back OP today, and that's all that matters now

This is me so far:

* Vit D & multivitamin

milk, skim, 1 cup
oatmeal, 1/2 cup
flaxseed, 1 Tbsp
1 small banana

1 grapefruit

3 cups lettuce
1.5 oz light feta cheese
4 Tbsp pinto beans
2 Tbsp homemade olive oil vinaigrette
1 ww english muffin
1 Tbsp Hummus

1 piece dark chocolate
1 c cherries

I'm off to go see "Knight and Day" with some friends, and we'll probably grab dinner afterwards. I'm thinking about steering them towards Panera (I love their black bean soup!)

Feel better, Wysteria.

So far today: 1 yoghurt. :/ I've been at the bird shelter I volunteer at all day and haven't had time to eat anything else yet (lol, though apparently I always have time to bum around on 3fc). What to eat is a little bit of a tricky issue, or rather, how much to eat is. I'm going out to dinner with my father and brother soon at a restaurant that has great nostalgic value for my family but also suuuper unhealthy food. I'm going to go for a caesar salad, but if they order something ultra tasty like potato skins as an appetizer I might not be able to hold out. Since we're about to go anyway I'm contemplating just not eating before so I can't possibly screw myself up that badly. On the other hand, it might help to go full... hmmmm :/

Also, although this is scheduled as a 1200 calorie day I think I should probably reschedule that 1200 calorie day- easier without restaurant food. We'll see, though.

After a frustrating morning I caved to the deliciousness of Wendy's. *sigh* My back was so sore this morning I went to the ER. The doctor at the ER was such a jerk I left crying out of frustration. He pretty much told me to live with the pain; maybe forever.

B- coffee w/ half and half
high fibre toast w/ ham and egg

L- wedny's chicken burger and fries

S - coffee w/ half and half

D- healthy shepard's pie
