Hi,
I just calculated my diet again, trying to stay on task, instead of just winging what i eat and "going by feel".

What do you all do to organize and memorize your diet?

some things I may try...
1. Carry my diet in my wallet
2. Make foods ahead of time, especially breakfast.
3. Utilize shakes when possible.
4. Try to memorize quick substitutions in case I don't have time to make the needed meal.
5. Try to memorize eating patterns, where I can oscillate amongs a group of similar food-types.

Others?

Set a timer on your phone every 2 hours telling you to eat something (shake or a full meal) if your trying to bulk.

Like BBB said, plan and prepack.

Fitday the stuff I want to eat
fiddle with the amounts until it matches my targets
weight it all out into a big bag

That's what I get for the day, totally brainless, I just eat what I want until it's gone.

I generally dont eat until later in the day. Ill skip breakfast and generally lunch(sometimes just PP in a bottle) and wait until I can relax to eat my food.

But since you are on much higher cals than I am, Id say shakes and nuts would be the easiest things to eat while you are busy.

Skipping breakfast and lunch is not smart dieting.

It's easy, just prepack everything.

This is why I enjoy being committed to the fatass lifestyle. I eat what I want, when I want, and how much I want.

Why not?

That means you are depriving your body of nutriets for about 12 hours. You should be feeding it regularly, especially first thing upon waking.

What advantage does feeding it regularly pose if calories are at the right levels?

And upon waking is in the air. Digestion, depending on what you ate could still be happening when you are just waking up.

I've blown off breakfast lately too. I hold out until about 10-11 AM, then eat again at around 2. Small snack before I lift at 6, then I eat until I go to bed. Much more comfortable than being hungry at night.

My main motivation for doing it, but I hold even longer because of my schedule.

yeah, I'm using IF too...16 hour fast, 8 hour feast

I usually plan ahead too and bring something from home if I'm going to be somewhere like campus all day

I eat roughly the same thing everyday....but I am now on my tenth week of lifting and I have a real good feel for what to eat.. I just eat good proteins good fat PW shake carbs around workout and when I get home at the end of the day I enter into fitday and finish up my cals to make sure I hit macros and get some CC before bed.

To be honest, I dont even memorize my meals.

I just follow the general rule... 4 calories per gram of carb/protein and 9 calories per gram of fat.

I have standards in my mind.... a piece of bread is around 12g of carbs... 1% milk has about 100 calories....

I kind of guestimate everything.
