Um...oil calories ~ 120 per Tablespoon (9 cal per gram)
[QUOTE=Richardmac;941104] Dont be afraid of olive oil. It contains about 100-150 calories per tea spoon full. [/QUOTE]

This calorie count is accurate for one tablespoon of oil, not one teaspoon. God forbid!
I'm in the same space after about 2 and a half months....not dropping weight at all but feeling better & clothes fit better. There was a slight trend down and then up again as I was sort-of force feeding extra sauteed veggies & protein powder but since I've been listening to my body that's stopped. I'm 5'7" and around 140 lb. I have a scale that tells me about what I need for basic metabolism to maintain muscle & weight and based on that, with a target of loosing at least 5lb of fat, I calculated this as a macro ballpark.
I'm not really much for counting calories so this is just something I'm planning on keeping in the back of my mind as I go through the day.
Calorie target: 1500 kcal
Excersize target 200 kcal (combo of weight bearing & other movement, average)
Protein Target 500 kcal 33% 125 grams (fermented dairy plus two double decks of animal protein)
Carb Target 300 kcal 20% 75 grams
Fat Target 700 kcal 47% 175 grams
When I made this calculation I was surprised at how much fat there is.
The one catch is that I usually drink wine at dinner with my husband, so I have to account for those calories. Something to search the forum about...I'm sure this question has been asked and answered before.
