What are your goals in regard to nutrition?

I am not really sure. I can do the workouts, but the nutrition end of it always stumps me. I think that i have a relatively healthy diet, but as for goals, I wouldnt even know where to begin. any suggestions?

If you are happy with your body comp and have enough energy than why mess? If you want to drop fat and have more energy I would eliminate the refined carbs, and replace them with whole fruits and vegitables.

This is an ideal to shoot fore imho

Your one day would be a meal for me. At my size and metabolism - add exercise - and I need a BUNCH of food. I generally try to eat clean, but don't stress too much about amount. I do know that I don't always eat because my body tells me to - but I strive for that.

Iwas so drained yesterdat that I added another 600 - 700 calories to my supper. The way I feel this morning I know I definitely needed it.

That is awesome the way you listen to your body like that!!!! I wish I was more "in tune" with what my body needs. As for my food log - that is what I typically eat - but yesterday I was "carb loading" for my run today. I always feel a little bloated when I have to do that.

Breakfast: 2 homemade waffles, 1 tbsp of maple syrup, 1/2cup of strawberries, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of green tea

snack: apple, 1/2 whole grain bar, bottle of water

Lunch: 1 cup of brown rice with 1/2tsp of soya sauce, 4oz of wild sockeye salmon, 1 cup of broccoli, some carrots, strawberries and grapes (I had a late lunch as I was out grocery shopping and knew I was going out for an evening of poker...haha), one bottle of water

snack:other 1/2 of the whole grain bar, one bottle of water

In the evening, while playing cards, I heavily snacked on veggies (carrots, broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes, red and green peppers. I also had probably two servings of mixed nuts, and as a treat, a handful of Jelly Belly Beans....yummy! Also drank two bottles of water, a glass of cranberry juice, and a glass of gingerale and cranberry juice.
