    Critique Me. Make Me Cry.

    I try to track an average days worth of food about once a week to make sure I'm staying on track.

    Two days ago I realized I consumed almost 3,000 calories and didn't even realize it. It's so damn easy to rack those calories up with all this coconut milk, bacon, cream, and avocados...

    Anyways... yesterday I tracked my food and this is what I came up with.

    Usually there are more vegetables for dinner and I still might add some in for tonights serving, but I decided to try a chicken clafouti using the recipe from the cookbook.

    I crossfit every night, if it matters.




    edit: probably gonna throw a 2% fage in after dinner... oh well!

    Nothing, this is a pretty average day for me. I was just wondering if anything stood out that I could improve on.

    Breakfast looks pretty big. You could try having either the bacon OR the avocado. and what about a 1/2 cup of coconut milk instead of a cup? Try 3 egs instead of 4. I say you could shave off a bit here and there, it does seem like alot of food.

    Actually, that IS half a cup of coconut milk... any less than that would just be too depressing

    is that almost 5000mg of sodium you have there? If so, probably a bit much.
    I grok, therefore I am.

    what were the ingredients of the 'large chef's salad'? i gotta agree with LTC here about the sodium.

    other than that, is your body performing/changing the way you want? if so i wouldnt worry about the calorie consumption.

    Hahah nice catch, i just checked.... fitday screwed up the sodium calculation on my salad and set it for 3.5k sodium. No, it's nowhere near that.

    edit: Just recalculated and the daily sodium is now at 1400

    I usually don't worry about my calorie consumption most of the time. When I realized the other day though that I had consumed almost 3000 calories I was pretty shocked because it sure didn't feel like 3k cals!

    I justify it by the fact that I crossfit hard as hell every day of the week, but I still wanted to post this thread I guess.

    It is high because dailyplate screwed up. It's usually around 1400 or so.
