    so i started fitday last week. i find it hard to believe, that despite not working out, i havent gained weight or lost too much mass. yet, according to this, i eat fairly poorly.

    my average fat intake is like 38%!?!?
    and, while taking in at least bodyweight in protein, its still only 35% of diet. (notice the low caloric intake, not working keeps me from eating a lot)

    i know i should lower carbs, but ill starve without em, and since working out isnt in my favor right now, i need the energy from them and my espressos. lol

    im not lookin to diet (dramatically) just tighten up. once i get into the gym again it will be easier.
    anyway, let me ask.
    wtf can i eat that wont leave me emaciated and yet be healthy?? a pat of butter, 2 slices of cheese, and a piece of toast, and all my carb and fat intake is done for the day?!? sheesh.

    The fitday program is sometimes very accurate, sometimes not. It's food database is not the greatest. Try adding your own foods (ie - like you did with the LoL cheese). When you say you are doing your bodyweight in protien, you are around 155lb? Also, fat contains roughly 9 calories per gram, where carbs or protein, i think, contains @ 4 cals.

    i didn't realzie you could make your food log public. I'm gonna start doing this for my log instead of retyping out my diet everyday like a sucker :bigthumb:

    im 175, and most days get b/t 180 and 2xx grams of protein. problem is that fat cals appear to go waay up too. guess i should just watch what i eat. :)

    dragon thanks for the link. i really dont have the time to create an entire database of food for myself, but i guess its the only accurate way.

    chinese food buffet ive found is really easy to track in there. lol.

    I used to save the labels off the foods, and take them to work and type them in :noes: , but then you have a customized list of foods that you eat on a regular basis.

    Likewise. I tend to eat the same group of foods all the time. After a week of entering lables, it is just a matter of pulling it from the custom foods list.
