I have decided to try to count calories this week. Also count the amount of protein and water I take in. The goal is 1500 calories a day, 138grams of protein a day, 87.5 ounces of water a day. I have never done this before and it will be a challenge but I am going to give it a try. Here is day 1, Monday's results. If you know how many calories some of the items are, I would love input, thanks.
7 cups of 8 ounces of water= 56 ounces
Breakfast: 3 100 calorie packs: 300 calories, 3 grams of protein
1 cup of herbal tea: -80 calories
Dinner: 1 Chicken Breast with Italian Dressing-150 calories, 25 grams of protein
Baked Beans- 7grams of protein, no idea of calories(anyone know)?
Italian Tomato Salad- 70 calories, not sure about protein?
Chicken Soup Mix from herbalife- 70 calories, 15 grams of protein
Snack: 1/2 cup of Lima Beans- 120 calories, 7 grams of protein
Snack: 2 pieces of Bacon(not sure?) 2-3 eggs scrambles- 200 calories, 12 grams of protein
Late night snack: Protein Drink Mix with milk- label - 250 calories, 20grams of protein
