Retrieving Old Food Diary from 3 Years Ago...
Hi. It seems to me that FatSecret maintains each day as just an incremental ID that starts from January 1st, 1970 (this is a common starting point for all time-keeping with computers. Long story, don't ask).

For instance, if you look at the URL for today's food journal, it's:

That dt=17541 is how many days have occurred since January 1st, 1970. As proof, change the dt=17541 to be dt=0. It'll take you back to 1/1/1970.

To get back to January 2015, you just have to do some math. Try this, it'll take you to January 1th, 2015:

Hope this helps!

Anyone bulking?
Are you sure you should be eating that many calories? I realize you're trying to bulk, but I think that might be overkill, and you'll put on unwanted fat.

What is your weight and body fat percentage?

any toning tips?

I say lift, and lift heavy. Toning is the building of muscle, no matter how you look at it. Women often worry about getting bulky. That is VERY unlikely to happen in women without outside supplements.


I use to have what a black girl called a "pancake ass" I was skinny fat about 4 years ago.
Now I have a perky round butt that is NOT a pancake... how I did it? LIFTING! I have been lifting consistently close to a year now.. it will be a year this mid July. I lift 3 times a week.. about an hour each time. So yeah...lift lift lift

Both of these are fantastic advice. Ultimately, abs come with a proper diet which reduces your body fat percentage to a low enough point. It is definitely possible to do it with diet alone, but it's much easier if you do heavy weight lifting.

I'm a big fan of musclehack, as he (for the most part) backs everything up with some excellent scientific studies.
Here are some interesting articles in regards to cardio vs weight lifting.

Just focus on your calories

Set your protein at 0.65 - 0.8g protein per lb bodyweight (at desired bodyweight) at a minimum
Set your fats at 0.35g per lb bodyweight at a minimum
Eat carbs to taste

Eat a wide nutritious diet - lots of brightly coloured vegetables, proteins, wide range of foods

If you find there's a food you find it difficult to moderate consider temporary elimination

if you don't have blood pressure issues don't worry unduly about salt

don't worry about sugar either unless you have specific medical condition - it's the fact that highly tasty foods tend to have high sugar / high fat and hence high calories that is the issue with weight maintenance and not the sugar per se

sort your calories and then focus on the minutiae

These are great starting suggestions for most people.

To answer your question on how you know what's "ideal" for you; it depends on a number of factors.

Rabbitjb provided some information that's generally accepted as a solid easy-to-follow rule of thumb. You'll likely have great results for a long time if you stick to it. Technically, if you'd like to be more precise, your macro and micro nutrient requirements depend on your lean body mass, activity level, your goals, medical conditions, etc.

A highly athletic person that works out often needs more carbohydrates than a person that intends to lose weight without exercising (yes, it's possible). While I don't recommend it, if you wanted to lose weight regardless of where it comes from, you can quickly cut muscle by eating very little protein. In contrast, if you're looking to preserve muscle or even gain some, you'll need a higher amount of protein. Some people prefer ketogenic diets, and in those instances, more fat and less carbs will be key.

The general consensus on sodium is >1500 and <2400mg per day, but if you're lifting heavy weights and/or supplementing with something like creatine, more is actually better. Also, consider your lean body mass in comparison to the average person. If it's significantly higher or lower, this range should account for it.

Sugar comes in many forms. Carbohydrates are sugar. See my above statements on carbs.

Having said all that, I haven't really given you precise numbers. While I'm heavily biased towards certain schools of thought on the right macronutrient ratios (and I can post dozens of papers to back them up), there are just as many resources and people that will disagree with me.

As such, my biggest recommendation is for you to do your own research and consider what sources are more reputable and what makes the most sense given your own goals and strategy. There are plenty of faulty studies out there, so you'll have to really do some critical thinking and ignore a lot of "expert advice". You'll find tons of articles that still try to tell you "dietary fat is bad", but you'll just have to learn to ignore them.

What are you basing those macros on?
