My Ride: 328i-GONE ;(
My maintenance level is 2654. 5 11 185lbs 33 years old. Holy **** that is a ton of food. I run 3 miles + 5-7 times a week plus a small workout routine I do at home. Plus I am very active with my kids. I have a Nike Fuel band that tracks my activity level. My goal is 5000 Nike fuel which equates to about 2000 calories burned per day. I think I am maybe just not in the same fitness catergory as you guys. I dont do any heavy lifting.

I'm always curious what people think about my diet and if it's considered "healthy" or not to most people, so here's what I ate today... What the verdict

9:00
4 eggs scrambled with 3 strips of bacon and 2 tablespoons of feta

11:30
1/4 cup pistachios

1:00
Flatbread sandwich with 8oz buffalo chicken and 2 slices of cheese

2:30
1/4 cup pistachios

4:00
4oz beef jerky

7:00
1pm chicken kabob

9:30
4oz castelvetrano olives

Didn't add up the Cals or macros or anything, but this is a pretty good day for me.

Sometimes I'll have a shake, but I eat whole food most of the time.

Doing some quick math, it might be more than you would think

35 at breakfast

14 in pistachios

56 in chicken at lunch

6 in cheese at lunch

32 in beef jerkey

70 in chicken at dinner

213 or so total if my math is right not including any trace amounts in the cheese with breakfast or the bread at lunch

I never really strive for more than that if I were counting.

If I were to have a shake or cottage cheese at night it would be higher,but I'm not one of these people that's shooting for 2grams / lb of bodyweight

you're right; it just seemed a bit lower when i skimmed over your post. your diet actually sounds fairly similar to mine if you take away some of the snacks and add shakes instead. is your food generally high in sodium? i find that mine is, but i dont particularly care

Yeah, depending on the day. Nuts are usually pretty salty and if I eat chicken I use a ton of hot sauce which has a lot. Bacon and beef jerkey too.

everything is great minus the buffalo chicken sandwich... deep-fried chicken coupled with bread isn't good at all.

But thats just being nit picky, looks like a good day. Probably around 2800 calories with crude math.

It's actually not a deep fried thing. It's sliced lunch meat with buffalo flavor from this company called boars head that makes some really awesome lunch meats.

One of my favorite things for lunch

I've always been on the fence with sodium, sure it leads to water retention and other ill health effects, however if you are drinking enough water (1+ gallons a day) you should be ok... I add salt when cooking most things and I don't look/feel bloated or have any dehydration symptoms.

I use myfitpal too. Really great app. You can scan barcodes and it automatically stores past items for quicker use. I've seen great results, but now I'm going to tweak my numbers.

In 8 weeks I dropped 20 pounds, now I'm pretty lean at 220.

This scale is really popular, you could always get a more expensive and detailed one, but this one is simple and works.
http://www.amazon.com/EatSmart-Preci...9148773&sr=1-1

I've been using this method for the past few weeks, because after you count everything, it's easy to guess.

Yesterdays cals

breakfast

4 jumbo eggs
4 oz of pork sausage

lunch
sollystew which consists of stew beef, potato, sweet potato, onion, carrots
To give you an idea of how big the servings are I made the stew into 4 servings and it was 3lbs of beef, 5 potatoes, 1 sweet potato, 1 large onion, 1 lb baby carrots. It clocked in at 946 cals and over 100g of protein.

Post workout
2 scoops ON whey with creatine

Dinner
More stew

Before bed
1 cup milk 1 scoop casein

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Lunch today... fajita style chicken (boiled then seasoned) with rice, and a fajita tortilla with ground beef/mushrooms. My guess is that it was about 900 calories, 24g fat/73g carbs/79g protein (according to myfitnesspal).

That article was interesting sweetbro (about simplifying and counting macros)... I've never owned a food scale but definitely might invest in one so I can figure out how much oz of meat I am actually eating instead of just guessing.

Think my estimates on that plate are decent? I figured about 150g of chicken, 150g of beef, the tortilla, and a cup of cooked rice. I feel like a fat kid right now though

These two things make it easy to not get fat off of such calories.

FYI eating close to, or over, 3k calories of clean food is a chore by itself.
exactly. i try to estimate, but at the end of the day im not really into how my body looks, just get the intake i need to perform. i think its good for people going for the "look" though, which most do anyway
