    I know it's old news..but i love being able to track my nutrition when i'm trying to lean down.....:o

    I'm 5'11'', 179lbs, and am storing a crapload of fat on my stomach....so much work to do. :(

    I use FitDay since it's free to actually put stuff in..but I use calorieking.com for more accurate calorie counts a lot of times. Most of my fitday entries are custom foods that I've pulled info from calorieking.com or the nutrition labels on the food itself.

    Not enough fats IMO.

    1 serving of fish oil.. you only had 1g of it.

    Oats or something would probably be a better breakfast than the fruit IMO.

    Make sure you eat enough real food- it's cheaper and more satiating than shakes, IMO.

    If you like the soy burgers, have 'em once in a while, but not every day :wiggle: meat/dairy is better for you and a better protein anyways.

    I take it you're having fruit+ shake for breakfast? Nothing wrong with that, I do that often.

    How many calories are you aiming for overall?

    now about to have some cottage cheese :hs:

    what sucks about being indian is that indian food is damn good, but i can't have it because i have no idea of precisely how much of everything is IN it :(

    and yeah, fruit + shake for breakfast, but usually post workout. pre workout is IDS whey + water, and 2 Hot-Rox.

    Post is the Recover-X shake.

    I was told that for my height/weight, maintenance is ~2500cals/day. I was aiming for about 2000 cals.

    or, i coudl just be completely off :hs:

    Maintenance varies widely from person to person. Decent place to start is bodyweight in pounds x13. See whether you're losing, gaining or staying the same and evalute from there.

    Fish oil recommended dosage is 6g/day.

    Oats+ whey or fruit+whey..whatever works. My usual breakfasts are any combo of that.

    If you've only began couting cals then you should try upping the cals slowly each week until you begin to put some weight. You have to bring your metabolism to its upper limit so that it attains its real maintenance level because the usual diet varies a lot from day to day and isn't the best at keeping your metabolism running.
    After finding what your real maintenance level is you can begin to lower it.
