Getting my intake under control

In my latest attempt to get my eating under control I have decided to log my food again. Logging my food was crucial in my success of losing 100 pounds. I lost the first 90 pounds in the first year and then have lost 20 and gained 10 back over the past 11 months. But now that I am approaching my two year anniversary (10/25) I think it is time to take it serious again. My problem is usually at night especially if I do not get to work out that night. The plan is to log ALL food on http://www.calorieking.com/ and copy it to my blog here.


Well I think there will be a certain amount of accountability by posting it here, and also if it goes well and the weight goes in the right direction maybe it could help others. You will see that my breakfast and lunch will be basically the same Monday thru Friday, yes that is boring but it is easy. I have added this week the Morning Snack of an uncrustable to hopefully to keep the metabolism working during the day and hopefully the added calories during the day will stop me from eating double that at night.

Well it will be a work in progress and it may change as I see fit. But I need to do something.

I think you might be on to something. Night time eating can be a killer. So can eating right after exercise -- beware of license to gorge syndrome.

Congratulations on losing so much weight!

Agree with Jeff. Tac also seems to have to work hard to fight the old BLG Syndrome.

Night time eating is a killer. I try very hard to refrain from all food afte 6:30.

I read just this week on a fitness nutrition site that you have license to eat all the fresh fruit you want after exercise because it's hard to eat enough fruit calories to count as a true binge before you get too full to continue. I don't think I buy it but it sounded good.

10/25 is my birthday, so I guess we share that date!

There is definitely something to be said for accountability - so I hope this works for you. You have done such an amazing job at losing the weight!

I lost 20 pounds on Weight Watchers last year doing the exact same thing...writing down EVERY SINGLE bite I put in my mouth. It really opens your eyes and makes you think before you eat.

I wish I could take my own advice....I gained almost 14 of the pounds back and am struggling to get them off again. :(

Journaling is good!

Jeff said...

Something doesn't work in the math -- how can you be over fat/protein and carb grams and under your calorie budget? Are the goals based on 1500 goal vs. 1765 consumed rather than net?
