Goal Weight:190.0 lb
following: jmb3450's own diet
performance: losing 2.6 lb a week

Male, 57 years old, married, 7 kids between my wife and myself, 4 grandkids, was very athletic and in great shape in my youth but years of poor eating habits resulted in coronary artery disease, 5 stents in my arteries, and pre-diabetic blood sugar levels. December 2013 I fell off my roof onto an asphalt driveway causing some back injury.

The good news - May 1, 2014 I got to the point where I was ready to seriously take control of my health and since have been working on eating better, exercising, and losing weight. I’ve gone from having difficulty walking due to my back injuries, to being able to jog and do sprints with no pain at all. Lab work on my blood is greatly improved, cholesterol levels now excellent and blood sugar is in the normal range. I'm off blood pressure meds and have greatly reduced my statin dosage. Initial goal weight is 190lbs, where I'll re-evaluate and set a new goal.

"Tricks of the Trade". Fool Me Once Shame On You. Fool Me Twice Shame On Me.
Glaun I've done the same thing also. Or look at the food database and find there are multiple choices to select for a food item and calorie counts are different. Choose the one with the fewest calories and now you have more you can eat. Or underestimate portions, like the huge portions of ice cream from a vendor at an event was only a half-cup serving, when it was in reality 5 of them. Used to do that stuff a lot, not so much anymore although I still have to go back to my food journal at times the next day and make adjustments. I try to be honest, nothing to be gained in fudging the numbers except pounds around my middle.

New to FatSecret, but want to share my own story
Great job. You have a good mature approach to eating and your diet especially for a 16 year old. Hope you get accepted into the college program.

A bit frustrated
Diablo not going to argue but "carbs are carbs" is not for everyone. Simple carbs especially sugar effect me differently and I count every gram I eat, don't care what info. you can find out there that says differently. I know how it effects me and I'm not the only one that way.
