following: Vegetarian Low Calorie
performance: losing 2.4 lb a week

23 year old Australian. I have an office job in a male-dominated industry. Have been a vegetarian since i was 14.
I'm just under 6' tall at 181cm, so any extra weight makes me look HUGE. I'm aiming for the low end of the healthy range. The lowest i can be for my height is 62kg, to stay healthy.
In high-school i was around 58kg,and still seemed healthy, but the doctors were unhappy.

stress + soda/ sugar addition = please help
Work out what it is about the soda you like best.
For me: i like the bubbles! so when i fell like a hit- i grab a bottle of plain carbonated water.
If it really is the sugar you're craving- consider a high-carb (low GI, high fiber) breakfast. Like oat meal(porridge), multi-grain toast or fruit. You'll get the sugar, but without the hit.

It may also help to put focus on your water intake. Aim for 1 liter of plain water to begin with. You'll find that in your effort to meet the quota, you didn't have a chance to drink the soda.

First you need to know what your diet is lacking.
(a healthy dieter shouldn't be lacking in anything, but it's not always that simple.)
For example i'm vegetarian, so i have a lot of trouble with my iron. I get a blood test every year, but i can tell when it's getting low. I take a pharmacy-grade iron/viC supplement 1-2 times per week. I also struggle with protein, so i use whey protein shakes as a meal replacement, about 2-3 times per week.

But if your diet includes lean meats and plenty of fruits and vegetables, then there's no reason you should be deficient in anything.

Before you try to self-medicate, talk to your GP about getting your bloods done.
Otherwise you're pouring money down the drain. A supplement will only help if you're already deficient.

Recording steps each day
you could record it in the journal. just the number for each day.

I'm not sure about adding exercise that isn't walking (i'm not sure i really understand this: you want to add the number of steps, but you can't call it walking?)

Calorie help
you should get all that info when you search for each individual food.

if you intend to make it a lot: save it as a meal to make it easier next time.
