    I need help calorie counting and current diet

    Heyy,

    Anyone know a good site where I can figure out how many calories Im eating....Like the types of food and their calories.....I think I am eating correctly My portion size just might be off

    Stats are ::
    Age - 21
    Height - 5'6 1/2
    Weight - 180current --184 a week ago
    ((**fyi I lost about 3 1/2 pounds a week ago doing this diet/working out but I think most of it was xmas/new years fat as I generally weigh 180))

    I want to possibly loose 20 pounds in 2 months I use to weigh 150-160 2 year ago but because of my computer job, stopped playing hockey and not working out its been downhill.

    Diet right now consists of ::

    Meal 1 :
    Protein shake made with 1% milk
    Vitamins, Creatine, Fish Oil

    Meal 2 :
    Oatmeal in a bowl made with water nothing added
    1 or 2 slices of whole wheat bread
    Whole Banana

    Meal 3 :
    I'll usually have a can of chicken or tuna
    Handful of Almonds
    Glass of Milk

    Meal 4 :
    1 chicken breast
    Brown/wild rice
    Broccoli or asparagus

    **Maybe another handful of almonds in between if I get a little hungry / munch on
    **I'll also have a apple somewhere here in the day or before the 4th meal

    Meal 5 :
    My meal 5 usually varies quite a bit sometimes Ill eat left over chicken, open another can of tuna or just end it with a protein shake
    --I also have this progressive vegeGreens stuff that I drink with 1 scoop during the day mostly near the end if nobody knows what it is its ::
    Progressive Nutritional Therapies - Vege Greens

    Thats about it I may have another glass of milk or some more almonds if a little bit of hunger sits in. So some days though depending how busy I am I might only get the first 4 meals off but its mostly usually 5-6. Again I am trying to loose 20 pounds in 2 months, no drinking smoking or anything either just straight diet and exercise. I hit the gym about 4-5 times a week with running for about 5-10 minutes and I left full body / push pull rotating days. I do low reps though about 5-8 reps.

    Again I am not sure on the calorie intake as I dont really measure out portions I just kinda eye ball everything or use a handful as an example but please any suggestions on what I should be doing or taking that might help.......I eventually wanna get rippppppped haha but I think maybe working out more like I have been doing and losing 20 pounds is a start..Please anything else I need to add or any input would help thanks

    Most people use FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal - it lets you input all your meals then calculates everything for you.

    Youll need to start measuring out your portion sizes properly if you want any sort of an accurate picture, though.

    This site is better. Has a bigger food database, most of the food is listed by brand and even have nutrition info for foods from restaurants.

    Do yourself a favor and buy a measuring cup and a scale. Both can be had for less than 10 bucks on Amazon.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    And let's not forget Biggly :P

    There's a free online version but only if you're active on the forum. The download version is better though.

    Both track your workouts and cardio too.

    Half price today at bitz, see sig

    Your meals look great. I would get one of the calorie counters you can find on the internet. Keep in mind, it is o.k. to over eat one day a week. Hope this helps. Sounds like you'll be at your target weight in no time.
