Ok here is today's I caught up on the calories:

grams cals %total
Total: 1830
Fat: 75 678 39%
Sat: 13 116 7%
Poly: 17 154 9%
Mono: 24 217 13%
Carbs: 178 553 32%

Fat was a little high but I ate a handful of nuts. Need to throw in a bit more protein. I'd like that to hit the 40% as opposed to the fat.

This is my schedule of calorie intake for this morning and this afternoon. Little bit higher on the protein. Kinda hard. I noticed I don't carry a lot of protein at home that doesn't have a lot of very high fat content. Dinner will be a challenge.

Ok gonna get a little more detailed except for amounts. Shy on the protein so far and I wanna kick that up a bit so I may throw in an Atkins. I know! I know! its an anti carb thing but its my best protein source currently :) and tasty too. :lol:

All Bran cereal
Skim milk
Atkins Chocolate shake
Grapefruit
Apple
Banana
Sardines (Canned)
Bran Muffin with cran raisins
0.15 oz Dark chocolate (heart healthy thing)
Beef Steak Lean - Grilled
Mushrooms/Onions
Oven fried potatos :evil: (prbly should have left this out)


grams cals %total
Total: 2157
Fat: 85 764 37%
Sat: 25 227 11%
Poly: 14 126 6%
Mono: 30 266 13%
Carbs: 217 692 33%
Fiber: 45 0 0%
Protein: 158 634 30%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

Going to probably throw down another shake tonight but I'm kinda top ending calories. Want the protein around 40%. Gonna have to figure out how to increase that. Boiled eggs and tuna I guess. Also need more veggies. Going to start packing on the fresh stuff just to snack on.

Yeh I'm not typically big on the Cereal thing cause of carb calories. Potatoes are kinda my weakness. Hate chocolate but medical studies show that very small amounts of dark (this is the bitter kind of stuff not sweet, so you can imagine how I look chewin it) daily can prevent heart disease. I figure its a very small mouthful and minimal sugar so may be ok. Potatoes are my weakness so I'm gonna have to work on that.

Why do you think dumping the Atkins drink would help? It has 15g protein, 9g fat, 6g carbs. I don't typically advocate a liquid meal but I've been doing it to maintain the protein. My biggest issue there is trying to eat the amount of protein I need.

Probably be better to hit something like egg whites opposed to the drink? That way I'd be eating pure protein pretty much. Feel like I'm eating, eating some more, and oh yes eating again heh.

Here is what I and many others have found works best for dropping weight extremely fast

Meat - about what would fit in your hand
large amounts of green leafy vegetables
fruit - mostly in the form of berries
and some nuts or olive oil

around 40/30/30 to half that amount of carbs and double fat

IF or 5 meals a day both can work great, I would say IF if there is a insulin sensitivity issue

IMHO

Sorry IF?

My glucose is good so no worries there. My difficulty lies in getting those frequent meals in. As a doc I'm pretty much going non-stop all the way through the day and have no ready access to eat five meals. I have to slam down lunch usually in about 5-10 minutes as I run over my lunch hour when it comes to patient care. thats usually when I throw down a can of sardines and a piece of fruit.

Interestingly I usually only have eaten about 1200 calories total by the time dinner hits. So I eat a huge portion of my calories then. Gonna have to alter that a bit but I think evening meal eating is detrimental in such a large dose even if I spread it out. Doesn't help with my wife being such an excellent cook too heh.

I'll see if I can figure out a way to split it up. Develop some meal planning. Today is my rough days. I'll be working till midnight tonight having begun at 0700 this morning.

This weekend I'll make a better plan. Thanks for the advice. I'll try to keep posting and not peter out. For the life of me I can't figure out what you mean by IF... :?

IF = Intermittent fasting

Pretty interesting stuff I have found that I knocks my hunger out and it is very convenient
I have been able to lose fat and put on muscle while doing it
Very positive impact on insulin sensitivity

More data here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calorie_re ... e_approach
http://www.simplefit.org/articles.html

Simple implementation details at the bottom of this page
http://www.simplefit.org/ideal-meal.html

Might work better for your schedule

Do blood work before you may find it very interesting should impact triglycerides and cholesterol levels

First 2 weeks can be rough headaches low blood sugar but after you adapt energy levels go really high neat stuff

IF = Intermittant Fasting or limiting your food intake to a 4-6 hour window every day. I use a 5 hour window based on the Fast 5 diet plan http://www.fast-5.com

Ok did some reading on this last night. Decided to give it a shot. Basically I've ate nothing since 7pm. I'm friggin starving hehehehe.

Hasn't been too bad I've drank nothin but water and coffee today, did the workout, worked in the yard, worked on medical stuff and so far so good. I got eight minutes to chow time.

The weekend will be tough. The missus is going to freak out on this but we shall see how it goes. If it works maybe I can convince her to join me ;).
