    BTW my posts on here about not going too low calorie are informational only and my opinion to boot. I know that some people have found that around 1000 cals is what works for them. I just don't want any newbies to jump right in on low calorie, low carb.

    I hope that I have not offended anyone.

    Hey, Paula... you CAN change the name of the thread. I went into the very first post of my journal and clicked Edit, then Go Advanced. There is where you can change the name of the title. I only know this b/c I thought about changing the name of my journal once upon a time.

    64 Protein

    Ideas for heartburn besides tums and such. I am at school and have very little at my disposal. I am also stuck at school as the car was dropped off in the shop this morning.
    I used to chew gum when I had heartburn. It worked, odd but true! I think because it stimulated digestive acid and I was low on that due to excessive Tums and baking soda consumption - I'd slam that stuff down because I was still eating wheat and not realising that I was intolerant.

    No offense here.......... we all have our own individual caloric needs and I respect that. I'm also 5'3" with a small-medium build - so I need less than a person of higher stature and larger frame might need. Or, more than someone like my hubbies youngest who is 5'2" and a very small frame. She eats like a bird!

    So there is the reason I am glad I am on the taller side and definitely a large frame. I come from farmer stock!

    My breakdown for the day is this:

    Total calories: 1411
    total fat grams: 127
    Total protein: 62
    Total carbs: 13

    I couldn't tell you percentages. This is what MFP gives me.

    Fat: 81.0%
    Protein: 17.6%
    Carbs: 3.7%

    That adds up to 102.3%, so something is not right within MFP, but it's close enough.

    I don't really worry about the percentages cause if I hit or come very close to my macro goals, I hit the percentages.

    That's kind of how I look at it. Besides, I'm terrible at math so the less math I have to do, the better.
