Because I want to lose fat, it's time to get serious, cut fruit down to <=1 serving per day, cut out the sugar in my coffee, take it easy on the nuts, and keep carbs between 50-100 grams. Carbs today: 70 grams.

Breakfast didn't hold me for long, and I was desperate for lunch by about 10:30 or 11:00. Coffee without sugar is making me very cranky.

I spent this evening and the following day with my husband at the racetrack, so this was the first time I had to make sure I would have something to eat. No hassles from anyone except my husband.
Breakfast: 3 eggs, scrambled, 2 slice bacon, tomatoes with pesto, coffee with cream
Snack: beef jerky, some nuts
Dinner: a bratwurst with ketchup (I got to the track too late to have dinner with everyone else. My husband presented me with a plate with a cold bratwurst with ketchup ("All the mustard was gone"), bun, and potato salad. I ate the brat and tossed the rest.)

Snack: nuts & coconut

frustrated, tired. I want easy food (bread, ice cream, fries). I want my husband to support me in this. If I stop doing this, is it back to 1200 calories a day?
