I went and filled out the Healthy Body Calculator® that you created. The information it provided was very helpful, but I do have another question.
Given the nutritional results it provided for me, how do I split them up throughout the day? Do I measure what I should have for each meal that will provide me with the dietary results indicated in the chart?
My problem is mainly that I am a college student, on board. So buying foods and measuring them is a problem with the fact that I don’t do it. I don’t live at home, so I do not have the opportunity to really be a label reader and such. However, I am able to measure my foods at school by cups, 1/2 cups, 1/4 cups, teaspoons, tablespoons, ounces, etc.
Is there any way I could provide you with my results and you could help me come up with a regime for how I should plan my meals, such that bread, meats, veggies, fruits, free foods? I have done the exchanges sort of programs before but they never took into consideration my personal nutritional needs. Thanks again.
Generally, your Calorie Goal can split the total calories into 1/3 at each of 3 meals. For instance, if you wanted to eat 1500 calories, aim for 500 at breakfast, 500 at noon and 500 at the evening meal.
Unfortunately, I cannot analyze your food intake given the volume of mail I receive. It would be much better for you to do that, then you can modify your food intake to meet your nutritional goals. Given that you are able to measure the foods you eat, you could use nutrition analysis software to analyze the meals that you eat. Try My Food Record which I developed with my programmers. It will analyze your food records and has 3 exercise tools that you can use to see the benefit of swimming at your height and weight.
