I am on day two of my diet. I weighed in at about 187 (5' 11").
My goal is to eat healthy, and about 190-200 grams of protein per day while keeping carbs low and eating healthy fats. I have no idea bf% right now but i'd a wild guess and say 13-16%. I want to get to like 8%-9%. I've been doing good so far but I need to work on getting more meals and tweaking this thing. I picked up a bunch of green vegetables, natty PB, chicken, and fat/carb free cheese today. I should be on my way

Meal 1: English Muffin 180 Cal, 0.5 fat, 25 carbs, +?protein
Meal 2: Two Frozen Fish Pieces, 380 cal, 38 protein, +?fat
Meal 3: Not hungry yet (wtf), two Tbsp of natty PB (one serving) 150 cal, +?fat, +?protein
Meal 4: Two chicken breast parm, 600 calories approx, fat from chicken, Protein 75g+
Salad with olive oil/balsmic vinegar, gotta check this
Meal 5: Same as meal 4 minus salad.

I think I ate/going to eat about 1 lb of chicken at least! The cheese added about 25 grams of protein across the two chicken meals. My calorie counting isnt perfect but it's pretty close to about 2000 being conservative. I am going to go back and check a few things for caloric content. I plan on doing some cardio tonight for about 45 minutes.

Update: I ended up with 20 minutes on the bike at my gym at max setting. According to it I burnt 831 calories. I assume that's for a 150lb person but still pretty good i'd say. I traveled 12.11 miles (36 mph, damn).

Tomorrow ill document better.

i dont know how accurate this is, and how much an elliptical machine or treadmill varies in calorie expending compared to the bike, but when i do 30 minutes on either, it usually says about 300 cals. point is id second guess the fact that the bike burns nearly 40 cals in a minute. but then again its just a suggestion.:D

Yeah I suspect the value is very high. The setting is on max however and it is one bitch to pedal. It says I am traveling at 38 mph and when I get off I feel like I wanna die so who knows.

Had to get up at 4:25 am today to go compete for the Ohio Leadership Scholarship at Case Western Reserve University today. I was one of 60 finalists of over 1000 people who applied. 12-15 of us will win it. The result was a day with a little bit of cheating. That's okay I can consider it a celebration for being a finalist.

Meal 1: Scrambled Eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 sausages, Home fries, 4oz oj. I managed to resist the doughnuts and other goodies they had here at this Breakfast for the Scholarship people
Meal 2: Luncheon at the University: Chicken breast with almonds, pumpernickel roll, little bit of rice (looked like white and brown), a little bit of salad with italian dressing, and a piece of lagsna with mushrooms and vegtables in it. I didn't eat the mushrooms and kinda picked over it. I drank a pepsi.
Meal 3: Just ate a plain english muffin, nothing around for the long drive home
Meal 4: Chicken breast and 5 pieces aparigus.
Meal 5: Brownie and Rice Krispy treat!

Wasn't too bad.
