    Breakfast.......2 eggs, 1/2 avacodo, 1/4 cup of salsa, 1/4 milk, chile pepper, all scrambled with 4 slices of bacon, cup of coffee with tb of Coconut oil.

    Supper; 5.8 oz of steak, cup of squash, caesar salad

    Accepted you on MFP but I'm not going to use it anymore I don't think.

    Adding supper on it but that will probably be it. Notice a bit of a differance in how both sites figure out calories. I was quoting what Cronometer said for today

    Everything looks great. How tall are you?

    I ask because I am 5'10" and going for 170 or 77kg. That is the high end of the wt' for my ht., but I plan to be muscular.

    I can't look at a list like this and assess, I need to see it in the form of MFP (or some such). Did you put dressing on your salad? And it says lean meat only for the steak?

    For me, I generally track first then adjust, then eat it. I strive for a fairly equal split between the meals that I plan to eat. I also strive for the fat to be twice the protein, and then carbs no more than half the protein. For me it is easier to adjust that way. I do go quite a long time between breakfast and lunch, but if I totally skip it, I start prowling in the pantry, or munching while I am cooking dinner, so I don't let myself do it. Even if it is just a cup of tea with cream and coconut milk and an ounce or 2 of cheese.

    Since this is all really just an N=1 experiment, I would say that if that felt good, then you are doing well. I would also suggest you go at least a week, preferably more before you start tweaking the macros. Give the body time to adjust. This is meant to be a long slow burn that lasts a life time. good luck!

    I did have dressing but it's a no fat, no calorie, no sugar yadda yadda. Steak was lean. Nothing on it.


    I updated the MFP to show dinner. Like I said above, there is a big differance between sites. Who knows which one is right?

    no telling! If you used something with a label you can check against that. If not there is a site that you can use to check that I think is about as accurate as it can get...Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis – NutritionData.com

    Personally I believe that we each use calories/macros differently that is why technically calories do count but it is really hard to count calories. I think you find a site you like to work with, then you use the numbers as a guide when you find the combo of numbers that work for you.

    Thanks for the response. I'm almost 6ft and built like a female offensive lineman. I think 200lbs would be a stretch (which is what I based my measurements on) because I remember what I looked like at 190 and it wasn't a healthy look. How many calories are you shooting for daily? I was actually working off of your macros before I did my own. I feel like I'm not getting enough fat. I'm so paranoid about ketotis going after my protein versus my fat.

    Tracking my food again is starting to make me get a bit twitchy over not "meeting" my numbers (aka undereating), which is continually hilarious to me, binge eater extraordinaire.

    Maybe I shouldn't do tracking because it makes me too obsessive. :*(

    if tracking is causing you stress, I wouldn't do it.
    Lots can do it happily, but I can't.
