How many do you consume per day? I try to stay in the 1700-2000 range, and I am active pretty much all day. This is an effort to slowly lose weight, and I try to eat only healty foods, like PB sandwiches, lunch-meat sandwiches, both on whole-grain, soups and salads. I do not snack or eat candy or junk-food.
I'm around 2500-3000 calories. although, on days when I ride really long, it might be up around 5000. this sunday, I did 90 miles in 4:48 with two other guys...we went to IHOP afterwards and I got the big steak omlette...it also comes with a huge stack of pancakes. If I had to guess, I'd say that was around 2000+ calories alone. Thats not including the bottle of gatoraide, two nutrigrain bars, 1 powerbar, and banana I had on the ride. breakfast that morning was a bagel w/pb, a banana, a bowl of cereal, and scrambled eggs.
Crimminy. now I know why food journals work to help people loose weight. looking at that list, thats a lot.

Premium tuna would probably be a lot better for you.
well, tuna is one thing that I can't afford. I also can't stomach it plain. Ham and beef I don't consider too bad, in moderation, and they are cheep.
