I found this article on a bass guitar website.

http://www.notreble.com/buzz/2012/03/30/food-for-thought-a-guide-to-healthy-eating-for-the-working-bassist/

It's a fun and informative read, and it brought out the thought "I wonder how many other musicians are out there in FatSecret land".

Let me hear ya!

My band is playing live tonight. Can't wait!

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

That's pretty interesting. I know I can't eat too close to a gig because I'll get shocking burps at the least, and actual reflux at the worst. Yay for correct vocal technique - it means EVERYTHING in your belly and chest is working, and pushing upwards! Acidic things are bad. Bananas are ace. Dairy messes with tonal production and breath efficiency. And a damn good stretch is IMPORTANT!

Sound advice! Pun absolutely intended. Smile

I'm considering getting a few energy shots, or bars, and simply try having one before each set, and a protein bar to end it all, after last set. I'm curious how it'll affect me.

I'm glad I don't have to worry too much about the food, in the way that I'm not singing. I do, however, want to feel comfortable when we play - so a large meal is a no-no.

Adkins indulgence
Fat Secret doesn't deduct fiber or sugar alcohol. I just count total carbs so that I can have a higher "budget".

Not a diet
Very true. That is for sure the reason I have failed so many times. Currently, my portion sizes are about a third of what they were. I need to stay like that.
