Oh boy, did I mess up today
Even though I did not eat anything off phase 1 list, my percentages are...
47% - fat
48%- protein
5%- carbs

I went way over on protein. It was all those pork rinds, I think (lunch). :sad:

Yeah...it is way too easy to over do those. Been there...done that. :hugs:

I would say that if that is a "bad" day, you are doing OK.... no reason to worry too much at all.... now had you said you went on a carb binge.... well...... :stars:

Like Garlic said look at it this way: You did not go over the carbs. So, it is not that bad. Just adjust the protein and go from there

They are my weak spot. Macadamias and almonds.....wistful sigh. That's why this time I haven't bought either yet. Yet. :)

Wow you really have it together. All I measure is carbs and try to get enough fat with my protein. Yesterday was actually my worst day in 3.5 months. I had two small taco tortillas and 2 20 ounce beers. I'm gonna say about 50-55 carbs for the day. I try to keep it between 30-35

Lose It!
I saw it on LCF's tools page, which means it's ok to mention. I was afraid I'd get too into the details if I used it, but I like it. It's easy to add foods (has a barcode scanning option) and you can make "recipes" for things you have often. You can use their site in conjunction with their iPhone or Android app. It appears to me that their carb data is more precise than product labels. An example is Powerade Zero. The label says less than 1g/serving, but Lose It has .2g, making the entire 32 oz bottle a whopping .5g. That, I can afford and it improves my workouts. :jumpjoy:
