Monthly Macronutrient Breakdown
So I have been tracking my Macronutrient data daily and recently (November) I started also logging my caloric expenditure.
Basically, I would log everything I ate into myfitnesspal.com and record the total calories, fats, proteins, carbs. I would also wear a fitbit one pedometer and record how many steps and calories burned for the same day. In minus out is deficit. For my added primal bonus I also tracked sleep and sleep efficiency. (When worn to bed, the fitbit tells you how many times you wake up during the night and how "Efficient" is your sleep.
Anyway, I haven't posted this since August and wanted to get a few months up to see if anybody would comment on the data.
Here was my August data post:
Data for September:
Data for October will not be shared as it was not a primal month. (I got married, went on a honeymoon, and hosted international visitors during the month.) Anyway, moving on...
Data for November:
As you can see where I started tracking the fitbit data, my next goal is to start making some improvements to my sleep and carb intake.
I am also thinking that a goal to be over 10,000 steps per day would be good for improving my overall need to move more slowly.
Looking forward to the comments
December is starting to go a lot better than November and October. I have found some motivation to get at eating low carb.
I've also started taking vitamins, thinking that might help. I posted this in another forum, but I didn't see any replies, so I figured I'd put something here also...
- Super Pack (MultiVitamin pack -from Beverly International)
Tuesday through Sunday:
- Fit Tab (MultiVitamin -from Beverly International)
- GNC Triple Strength Fish Oil + Vitamin D3, Softgels
- IGF-2 by Applied Nutriceuticals (Before Bed)
- L-Carnitine Plus Raspberry Ketones by Top Secret Nutrition (Twice daily)
- protein shake post workout: Gold Standard 100% Whey by Optimum Nutrition.
Just a quick update:
6/30: 225lbs (Waist 46.25")
7/30: 212lbs (Waist 44.0")
8/31: 204lbs (Waist 42.5")
12/21: 199lbs (Waist 41.5")
Very guilty. I don't even need to ask what are the clues...

Personally, I ditched the fish oil a couple years ago. I shoot to eat about 1lb or more of seafood/week instead....usually sardines and salmon with plenty of bivalves.
Right now I only supplement D3 and magnesium. The magnesium probably isn't even needed and I haven't noticed any effect, but oh well.
You doing some bone broth? Winters a good time of year to add it in if not.
Lol engineer too and the first thing my wife said was they spread sheet looks like something I do.
I've been debating the fish oil. I started taking it prior to going primal due to my HDL numbers, and now I eat more fish so I debate if it's needed. My numbers have gotten a lot better, so I'm not sure. What are you taking for D3? I think if I drop the fishoil I need to find a different supplement for D3.

If you noticed every month I add to the data that is collected. I wrote a macro to pull the data automatically from the tracking sites (Myfitnesspal.com and fitbit.com)
