Food: Do what now? February 23, 2010Posted by abowersock in Exercise and Diet.
Now, I won’t be posting my food everyday, only on milestones. I guess day 1 is a milestone. Let’s just say I have no idea what I’m doing. I sat down with my “ex-wife” last night and we came up with what foods I can and can’t have. I’m still not sure about portions and serving size.
My thought is this: serving sizes on the package are based on a 2000 calorie diet. I’m 6.1 and 187 pounds. I need about 2800 cal according to the worksheet. My reasoning is that I need about 1.5x the standard portions. So instead of 3oz. of carrots in a serving, I’ll eat 4.5oz. Amidoinitrite?
My old method of cooking was: I know what’s delicious, I know how much to put in… eyeball it. My new method of cooking is Meatwad saying “do what now?”
Here’s my first jump into the crazy waters of proper eating.
We’ll see if I improve.
