Food thread

I don't know if anyone else has trouble with self control, but just in case, here is a food thread.

You post exactly what you've eaten here every day. Every last bite. That way if you're cheating yourself someone else can tell you. Good incentive to keep eating clean when you have to face everyone here.

Of course, it will only work if you're honest when posting here.

Here's what I had for today.

1 cup oatmeal mixed with 2 eggs
4 packets of grits mixed with 2 eggs
1 lb, 5.7 ounces chicken
Can of green beans
Box of raisins.

Next time try to get frozen green beans instead! You're cheating yourself out of nutrients that canned vegetables lack, and adding more sodium to your diet than is necessary. Most stores have generic brands and they can be steamed or you can get the microwaveable steam bags. It's not too much more expensive, if at all.

For your health!

I only have a mini fridge available to me, unfortunately, so doesn't leave much room for the freezer compartment

My goal is to get 35% of my calories from protein, 25% from carbs and 40% from fat since it appears that I am an endomorph and my body doesn't handle carbs like others do. I am also trying to keep my calories around 1500 but I don't eat a whole lot so it can be hard.

1 oz of cheese

Calories 1200
Fat 60 grams - 43%
Carbs 85 grams - 27%

Breakfast:
1 pack of instant low sugar oat meal
1 boiled egg

Snack:
3 celery stocks with ~ .5 tbsp of peanut butter
1 boiled egg

Lunch:
2 boiled eggs

I workout 5-6 days a week but it is only for like 30-45 minutes, other than that I have a desk job and I am working on cutting at the moment. I got quite a bit of muscle (could be more but I will bulk after my con in September) and I really want it to show for my next two cons. Every time I enter all my information in somewhere to find my maintenance level it is always different so I figure 1500 was safe for cutting since it ranges from 1500 to about 1700. Though I always have a hard time with my diet...I really like sweets....and burgers.

A great formula for figuring out your calorie needs is to use the Harris Benedict Equation. It factors in age, weight, height, and activity level. Often times you actually NEED more calories than you think. Especially if you are working out. The more you restrict your calories...the more likely you are to binge, then feel guilty, and sabotage any hard work you may have put in.

Plus it puts your body into starvation mode and STORES more fat.

This is one of my favorite sites for getting inspiration for snack/meal recipes www.fitmencook.com not only is the food yummy...the photos are just stunning

I have a great meal plan that helps folks get started eating clean. If you are interested just PM me and I'll email it to you. I also have a handy excel spreadsheet to find out your Harris Benedict Caloric needs. Or if you google it there are tons of websites that have the formula.

Just doesn't seem to work for me
That equation puts me at a LOT more calories than what I'm using now to maintain weight (If I go under these calories, I lose weight, if I go over, I tend to gain weight)

I consider my activity level "extra active"(I bike 150~200 miles a week to get from my house to 2 college campuses 4 days a week, in the gym 4 days a week, non biking cardio obstacle course 3 days a week), but used moderate exercise and even that number of calories is 400+ over my maintenance calories.

LOL. Thats a bummer! It sounds like you know your body pretty well though and what you need for maintenance. Which is good.

I just get super bummed out by those that try to starve themselves, plus workout and then go on this yo yo of binge/starve/binge or they stop losing weight once their metabolism adjusts to the restriction. It amazed me how fast I lost weight once I started feeding myself correctly. It was like magic!!!

Sounds like you are very active. That is awesome.

Yea, by the time I turned 22, I was 35 lbs heavier than I was in high school and significantly weaker in every lift. When I thought "The 17 year old me could kick the 22 year old me's ass" the next thought was "This has to stop"

Been consistent in the gym ever since Oct 2010. Will be 25 this month and the 3 year results will show in October!

As far as starving goes (well some people call it starving), I do intermittent fasting. I have a 4-6 hour eating window and I fast for 18-20 hours a day, but I eat the same amount of food as if I weren't fasting, same number of calories, just in a shorter eating window.

With the calculator I use my BMR is 1500 so when I workout that is my calorie deficit which is anywhere between 300-600 calories a day so I should be losing weight at this rate. I'm going to give it two weeks and see if I am progressing as planed, or at least losing a little. I may actually end up gaining weight for the first week since my body isn't used to this many calories. So with my workout in order to maintain my weight I should be getting about 1800-2000 calories which is about right.
