Labonita! LOL!! Don't feel stupid. When you fill out your food journal, if you scroll down you will find the pie chart that shows you what percentage of carbs/fats/proteins you have eaten over the day. You should strive for 40% carbs, 30% fats and 30% protein. You find the carbs in bread, cereals, fruit and most vegetables...plus they are lurking in lots of other foods as well, like beans for instance!! Fats are found in milk, cheese, eggs, meat,poultry, nuts plus the obvious sources like butter and margarine. Proteins are found in meat, fish, poultry, beans, cheese, nuts and even in milk. As you can see there are many crossovers there! That is why the food journal here on fitday is so handy, as you can check the nutrition of everything you are eating and can see where you might be overdoing the carbs or fats....or in my case, underdoing the protein!!

shell, I see we are both from Alberta!!! How cool is that?!
