Diet/I think this is my fourth post today


Anyway, today was the first day of my food-logging resolution. I'm probably only going to be this for a week, if that, but I do want to get an idea of where my diet is. I started making much more conscious choices part way through the day, so lunch and dinner were pretty ridiculously healthy, which certainly isn't something I'd do at college. However, I figure that its good to see what it feels like to eat a more perfect diet. Plus, I know its getting pretty late, but I really want to look as good as possible for the boyfriends party. I'm trying to get the gym for the rest of this week, and maybe eat a little less. (I got to the gym today and went on the rotex. I was really hard work!)

Anyway, my calories/fat/protein etc for today were pretty good. My fat was very high, but that was in large part due to "good fats" (olive oil on my salad etc). I also think the protein "goal" is pretty ridiculous, so I need to work out how to change that. Anyway:


  1. I think that you could actually afford to up the amount of fat you're aiming for. I'm going to be messing around with my macronutrients during the next few days, but there's a whole school of thought that you should get up to 50% of your calories from fat, so for you that'd be up to 120g fat. I'm not sure I'd go that high (personally), but it's worth thinking about!

  2. Hey Ali,

    Thanks for your comment. I'm definitely going to follow how your new diet works for you. I don't really know much about what I'm doing (the amounts I'm aiming for are just what the program set up for me). I was a bit surprised at how much over I went with my fat - I really didn't feel like I ate that much (and most of what I did eat was "healthy" fat). So, I think I'm going to try increasing the fat a bit/not worry about going over 63 at much! Thanks for your encouragement (and good luck with your new diet)!
