hint for planning UD
Hope this helps, it helped me with stress about UD planning.

I get 1798 cals for UD.

So I try to plan 500 cals for each meal, and 298 for snacks treats and misc items like coffee cream etc. If I break it down, and try to balance my day that way, it really helps me.

If I further break it down I can make one meal carby (think cereal or toast for brekkie, have with protein though!) one meal to get in fruits (fruit salad for lunch with cottage cheese or yogurt) one meal for veggie (protein added to large spinach salad for dinner) plus cut up veggies for snacks with ranch dip and a simple dessert (I still keep everything sugar-free) and you're planned! This helps me balance out my day and doesn't make me feel deprived without gorging on carbs.

Wow, I love this idea and it's SO simple, too! Just pick the number of calories you want for every meal and your snacks and then just stay in those calories!

BRILLIANT!!! :up::clap::jumpjoy:

I was thinking this could work either day, up or down but especially DDs for me. I get 800/900 calories for my DDs and I don't like to eat a big breakfast so since your idea I have been dividing the meals up into 100 for breakfast, 150 for lunch, 350 for dinner and the rest for my FF 1/2 & 1/2 and snacks!

It's working like a charm and some days I "borrow" from breakfast or lunch to have a "bigger" dinner! ;):up::clap:
