I have read through a lot of threads in F&N. While not being able to find a lot of threads pertaining to women and nutrition, I am assuming what goes for men generally goes for women. Please find below a brief synopsis of my situation: Age:27 Current Weight:150 Goal Weight:120 - 125 Height: 5'3" Food in Typical Day (from what entered at fitday.com): 4 Pieces of Honey Wheat Bread 1/2 cup low fat granola 10 Wheat Pretzels Fruit Salad consisting of Peaches, Apricots, Apple, Banana, etc. (Fruits vary per day, but I try to have a fruit salad everyday. Apples and bananas are whole fruits. Pears are in extra light syrup with the syrup drained. Apricots and peaches are in natural juice with Splenda, as fruits as of late have not been of the best quality.) Lean hamburger with fat drained A can of mushrooms 1 Multivitamin According to fitday.com I have consumed, 1264 calories, 23 grams of fat, 249 grams of carbs, 46 grams of protein I am unsure as to whether this is enough. Should I be eating smaller meals, like 2 to 3 hrs. apart. I generally eat 2 to 3 meals per day at varying times plus a snack or two. Am I consuming enough fat and calories? I have started with tuna and trying to eat less bread, plus slow down with the pretzels and granola. Anything else I should be eating more of? I have bought weights and am starting on those...how much should I begin with? 10 lbs. per dumbell? 20 lbs. per dumbell? In addition, I do taebo approx. 30 mins. per time 3 to 4 times a week.
