I'm using FitDay http://www.fitday.com/
to help me stick to the plan my nutritionist layed out. I eat every 3 hours, & if I get really hungry & need to binge a bit, I can at least see what it is I need to binge on. A couple of days ago this happened & I still needed to catch up on fat, so I ate 4 pieces of whole grain toast with 3 tablespoons of Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread, it put me a few hundred calories over my ideal limit for a rest day, but at least I hit my protien/carb/fat percentages pretty close. I refuse to let myself starve & many days I'm well under my calorie limit.
I am still very new to all this & am learning to eat smart & how to balance my diet daily . It seems that if I save my protiens till later in the day, I don't get as hungry at night. For instance, yesterday evening I made a triple decker (Big Mac style) solid white albacore sandwich. I mix 3oz of nonfat greek yogurt with the 6oz of tuna, sliced up a couple of dill pickle spears, a little Grey Poupon & spread it between 3 slices of whole grain bread. 575 calories, 66 grams of protien, 71 carbs, 9 fat. Awesome meal before I went to the Gym that carried me through the rest of the day other than a recover drink. It will take me a while before I can consistantly hit the 15%pro/55%carb/30%fat goal the nutritionist set for me, but trying is half the fun.
