Day 1 is a'comin'
11:15 p.m. - 2003-10-01

Tomorrow is the OFFICIAL DAY 1, folks!

I met with my nutritionist today and received my menu. But, because our meeting was late in the day, I can't start until tomorrow. I gotta say, it seems like A LOT of food I have to eat.

Here it is (with examples):

Meal 1

3.00 servings starch (1 bagel)

0.05 servings fat-saturated (low-fat cream cheese)

Snack 1

2.00 servings starch (12 saltines)

2.00 servings meat-lean (2 oz low-fat cheddar cheese)

1.00 servings fruit (orange)

Meal 2

2.00 servings starch (2.5 slices white bread)

2.00 servings meat-very lean (2 oz deli smoked turkey)

1.00 servings meat-lean (1 oz low-fat American cheese)

2.00 servings fruit (apple)

Snack 2

2.00 servings starch (12 saltines)

3.00 servings meat-very lean (3 oz tuna in water)

2.00 servings starch (18 baked Lays chips)

Meal 3

1.00 servings starch (dinner roll)

2.00 servings starch (.8 cup pasta shells)

2.50 servings meat-lean (2.5 oz roasted chicken breast)

0.50 servings fat-polyunsaturated (.5 Tbsp light margarine)

1.00 servings vegetable (.5 cup green beans)

80 - 100 ounces of water daily

Whew!! That's a lot of food. I'm supposed to eat every 2 - 4 hours.

I have to change my goal weight, too. Here are my stats:

Total Weight: 343

Fat Weight: 178.4

Lean Body Mass: 164.6

See that last number? That's my new goal - 165. If I were to go lower than that, I would be losing muscle. I really do have big bones!

I have to workout 3 days a week - weight training and cardio. This program is structured for fat loss and muscle maintenance. If you just need more information, CLICK HERE.

So, tomorrow it's DAY 1...
