Stay well...
Yup, don't overcomplicate it. I'm excited to what kind of progress you make. =]]

Just posting this to say ,so far so good.Funny (Lucky) I have not craved any junk food the last 2-3 days. Gonna stay off the scale till next Sunday (Two weeks into this new lifestyle) Will increase my protein consumption while staying within my daily caloric limit.
I hope this does not bore you all ,but I find the support from this forum helps so much.
Stay well

Its a good source of protein and post workout nutrition, it has other immune boosting effects.

I noticed you said you wanted to up your protein intake, and whey protein is a good addition to a healthy meal plan.

Talking Hello

I have used FitDay in the past on my home computer. I actually bought the software and didnt use the website. I went from 356 to 166 in about a year. My doctor told me I was too light, said BMI doesnt mean much, about 200 would be right.

But I was a 42 year old man who wanted to go back in the Army and they say I have to weigh less than 192. Right now I am over 192, but would pass the tape test. I am using FitDay to get in really good shape.

I have to use the online version as I am stationed in Afghanistan now, but when I get back, I want to be in top shape and physical condition!

It worked for me in the past, keeping track of everything, and I am hoping that it will work again!

Whoops ,
My first let down.(Confession time)
Had a few (light beer IE:67 calories) and when I got home all I could think about was "Potato chips: Went out bought a bag, ate the whole dam thing!
I feel stupid ,but WILL NOT let one slip get me down.Entering the data into fitday and seeing it graphically sure shows th obvious.
