How many Calories would this be

Postby pearce88 » Wed Jun 04, 2008 3:15 pm

Hello,
I've tried alot of calorie calculators on the internet and I cant find any of the things I eat on the lists...
I am going to post what I eat on an average day, And hopefully someone can post how many calories it is on average.

Breakfast
5 weetbix (with 1 tablespoon of sugar)

Morning tea
I generally just have an apple or banana

Lunch
1 tomato sauce sandwich on normal white bread

Afternoon tea
A choc chip musli bar or another apple/banana

Dinner
Steak and frozen veges (peas, corn and carrot usualy)

How many calories would all of that be on average? I am supposed to have 1800 - 2200 calories per day so I hope im not going over that.
Thanks for your time

I suggest having something a little more nutritious than a tomato sauce sandwich for lunch. Its just empty calories.

heres a rough estimate of your daily foods.

Your calories:

5 weetbix = 294 cals
1 tbs sugar = 65 cals
(do you have milk?)
milk full fat 1 cup = 160 cals

I medium apple = 78 cals
1 medium banana = 99 cals

1 tbs tom sauce = 18 cals
2 x slices white bread = 175 cals

muesli bar = 100 cals

lean steak = 177 cals per 100g
frozen veges = 50 cals

It doesn't seem like you are eating enough calories. This works out to be just over 1200 cals.

I strongly suggest something more substantial for lunch and maybe add some variety to your breakfast.

are you on CK?
go into your settings and take your personal profile again
when it comes to the bit where you set your nutrient amounts increase your fat level to 100 grams, that way you will always be under not over!
and stop stressing over it :) if your within your calories and eating decent food its not worth worrying about getting everything perfect, its soooo easy to become obsessive about all these little things but unless your planning on becoming an elite fitness machine who cares if you eat 1gram more fat than a computer generated program allows?

Your meals are about 1500 calories or more. It is just a normal amount of a calorie intake. SO, you are right on choosing your meals.
