Way to go Jeff,

Sounds like your eating right since you've already passed your goal.
Congratulations! I haven't been counting calories, carbs and such. I've
been watching my portions and staying away from fast foods like burgers and
fries. Been hitting the stairmaster and walking about ten hours a week and
have lost 55lbs so far.

Take care and congrats again,

Paul

Thanks. But, like I've said in other posts, I think NOW is the hard part.
Increasing my caloric intake and maintaining the weight.

Cool! Keep it up!

Fitday has REALLY helped with counting calories. It's nothing that you
can't do yourself, it just makes it a whole lot easier.

Agreed. I am having a hard time adding calories without them being bad
calories. I'm getting there though.

Add me to that list. I will say even though it's hard, it's an interesting
experience to see how I'm reacting either physically or mentally to certain
foods. I've been using some of the ADA exchange information to get ideas on
how to balance my diet. It's all a learning process.

JR,

Very good job. Beer, tho, isn't a "useless snack." A dark beer like
Guinness is full of antioxidants. My dinner tonite: 2 fiber rye
crispbreads + 2 tbs peanut butter + (eating out) 1 pint Guinness.
Moderate drinking is healthy: preventing both heart disease and
diabetes. Now "pretzel logs" - that's truly a useless snack. You
like berries, I eat 1 pound of blueberries daily - good stuff. Also
good (and cheap) oatmeal. I'd advise increasing your calories; also
at your height 170 lbs is fine.

JR,

I can get my antioxidants from supplements. If I drink one beer, I'll drink
another.

Moderate drinking is healthy: preventing both heart disease and
diabetes.


Well, the media certainly has jumped on the bandwagon regarding drinking,
but if you don't drink, it's no reason to start.

Now "pretzel logs" - that's truly a useless snack.


Perhaps, but there's no fat or cholesterol. They're (at least the one I
eat) are made from whole wheat, so there's
some fiber in them.

You
like berries, I eat 1 pound of blueberries daily - good stuff.


How can you AFFORD that? I still have some leftover frozen ones from one
day in July picking, but they won't last too much longer.

Also
good (and cheap) oatmeal.


I buy (at Trader Joe's) Country Choice Organic Multi-Grain Hot Cereal, which
is oats, wheat, rye, etc....Not too bad, especially when I put berries in
it, and it's only $2.00 a cardboard "can". Regular old oatmeal is too mushy
for me.

I'd advise increasing your calories; also
at your height 170 lbs is fine.


But I don't WANT to be 170 pounds. If I am eating enough calories to
sustain my weight, what's the difference how much I weigh?
