I mean what I am doing seems to be working I was just curious. Anything I can tweak to make it better ya know! So less bread/potato type carbs, more veggies. Ok, now how do I get my fat up in a good way? I seem to be low on that. I usually eat eggs in the morning with some wheat toast, couple hours later I will eat some veggie soup, or a tuna sandwich, dinner is usually meat, potatoes, and veggies. snacks include popcorn(94% fat free smart pop, fruit (pineapple, orange, tangerines, grapes, apples), Yoplait light yogurts, Sugar free popsicles, sugar free pudding/ jello... not all of these in a day of course
