I'm doing this Down Day with mini-meals, eating every hour. Each mini-meal is about 30 calories (or a couple more or less), and ends up at about the 500-calorie mark. By spacing the feedings out just a bit, I can cut the calories for the day down, and by eating a double mini-meal occasionally throughout the day, I can make the day's calories come in a bit higher if I'm maintaining right where I'm set.

Here are today's foods:

coffee w/half & half
blueberries
cantaloupe
egg whites
ham
chicken liver
B/S chicken breast
spinach w/FF dressing
green pepper slices
grape tomatoes
Magic Pop w/lite cheese wedge
tilapia

Quick question... How do you count squash, like acorn or buttercup. Looks like approx 100 cal/cup to me... Any thoughts?

I go by weight. I have a scale and go by ounces. Like for acorn squash, I would cut it in half and claim the smaller side for myself, scoop out the seeds and then weigh the portion on my scale, raw, then enter those ounces into ******, using the oz. calorie calculation. If the squash was a large one and I didn't want that many calories coming from squash, I'd cut some of the chunk away before baking it for myself. Usually my DH gets served the little extra bits that I choose not to include in my calorie counts, so he's enjoying me being on JUDDD. (I weigh it including the skin, even though I don't eat the skin, 'cause I don't think that adds much to the weight I enter into ******.)

I agree with Pat ^^ above. If you've already cooked and mashed the squash, then I'd go either by weight or by cup, if you have one handy.

I have a digital scale for the kitchen, and I do just about everything by weight now. I also spent some time at the start of JUDDD measuring things with the cups, spoons, and by weight, so I have a good idea when I do have to "eyeball" something, like when I'm at a restaurant (or I ask the server to find out what the serving portion was... usually, the cook or chef will know).

End of day tally:
S: had 2oz of carrots, 20 cal
D: found extra lean ground turkey at the store, so 7.5oz of that, 1pkg cabbage slaw, 1 pkg tofu shirataki noodles, some hot sauce
D: dessert 55cal of frozen almond milk

Great DD I think I finally have the caffeine/fat combo dialed in. Just need to drink more water during the day.

511 cals
19g carb

and I have my UD tomorrow fully planned

Hi Truffles,
I believe I can post a link to the USDA food data base, and 100g is 3oz, so that's a standard weight-- acorn squash, cooked mashed, no fat-- 34 cals for that amount. So I'd say 4oz is about 40 cal.

Here's the USDA database: Foods List

also, I find really good luck with typing into google something like: acorn squash nutritional information

there's a lot of sites to find this info on (some sell stuff, so we can't link to them here) but I'd say the first few that come up when you google something are trustworthy, the USDA is trustworthy (it's what most other sites pull from, actually).

p.s. here's the link to the tools this site recommends http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ma...available.html
Hope this helps!
S
