Today is day one and I first want to note that I am not sure I know what I am doing, so if any of my calculations, counts, goals, etc., seem off to anyone reading this please let me know. I need help and I have a good bit to learn so that I can hopefully help myself today, and someone else another day.
Today Goal Difference Comments
Cal 2108 1500 + 608 Amazed at how many calories were added by sugar in my coffee.
Fat 73 41 + 32
Sat 26 20 + 11
Chl 668 300 + 368 Recently cholesterol tests show my cholesterol is normal.
Sod 2592 2400 + 192 This truly is a concern as I have high blood pressure.
Carbs 259 187 + 72
Fiber 15 25 - 10 The only thing I am not getting too much of?
Sugars 142 50 + 92 Again, all the coffee I drink with sugar.
Protein 100 93 + 7
As I said, I am really not sure that these values are right, or if some may need further adjusting due to my particulars. I'm just flying by the seat of my pants. Also, I failed to include beverages other than coffee. I do drink milk often and an occassional soda. I believe I had one glass of milk, 1 glass of sweet tea, and 1 small glass of Sprite today as well, which has not been figured into the above. Maybe I will get better at this as time passes. LOL
