Establishing healthful habits is more important than closely tracking your daily calorie intake. Don't eat a "lunchable." Have an apple and some yogurt tomorrow instead. Keep doing whatever is easiest and cheapest and you'll be dead before you're 60.

Exactly.  If your calories are all from high sodium crap like lunchables (which I have never had... not even one), you're going to end up with other problems.

I am very low on my calorie intake for the day.  I'm sitting at a grand total of 500 calories.  I had no breakfast, and just had a Lunchable for lunch.  I'm about ready to find something for dinner after the 5:00 pm newscast.  I probably should find a few more calories.

Edit:  I'm closer to 400 calories than 500.

If you're going to skip a meal, don't make it breakfast - that's what jump starts your metabolism.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, yet it is the meal I most often skip.  I guess it wouldn't hurt me to get up a half hour earlier to fix a little something.

That's not actually true. Eating breakfast doesn't change your metabolism, but it does have other beneficial effects. You'll have more energy and you're less likely to gorge yourself on on junk food later in the day.

My problem is I tend to eat breakfast at the wrong end of the day.  I enjoy it for the first meal of the day, and I also enjoy breakfast for dinner.  That's one habit I will have to significantly reduce if I want to be successful at losing weight.

Nix, an important thing to note is that there are short term and long term goals. You know who eats a lot of apples and yogurt and assorted health food, fat chicks.  The denial of comfort food altogether eventually leads people to gorge themselves on cake and completely stop altogether. You are not going to break 30 years of poor eating habits quickly.  By tracking his calorie count and exercising, he will run a deficit and he will lose weight. By losing weight and getting active his blood pressure will go down and his energy level will increase.  It will eventually get to where he will lose his taste for some of the artery clogging foods.  I really think you have to build up to certain things; you just don't flip a switch and start liking healthy food over Arby's overnight.

Wouldn't that be nice!!  If I could flip a master switch and all the old habits be dead, I would have done that years ago.  However, such as they may, I am having to go to the Old West Shootouts with each one of them.  I've encountered several wounds and had to take a leave of absence for 9 months, but I'm back with guns loaded!

Jeff, again when you go to Walmart check out the Healthy Choice meals. They are cheap, filling, and really easy to make. I have about 4 in my freezer here, and about 3 in my freezer in work in case I don't want to go out for lunch, and at home for if I don't get a chance to cook an actual dinner.

I will definitely be looking into Healthy Choice meals.

Agree with Andrew.  Yes, they tend to be very high in salt but they are generally low in calories, taste good and are quick and easy. There are a range of different brands lean cuisine, weight watchers etc (hint: don't bother with 'lean' pockets) just start checking the labels on back and buy some when they are on sale.

Back to the quick thing, I know this forum is loaded with college kids and youngs but I dont know where some of you get the time to make all these gourmet meals.  I cook most every night but I save the labor intensive crap to the weekends. Id rather squeeze in a workout than stir some sauce for hours.

Actually, it is true (assuming you're getting recommended amounts of sleep and don't eat very late at night).  Lack of eating on a regular basis causes the body to produce less enzymes that metabolize fat.  If you eat at 5:00, and don't eat again until 12:00, that's going 19 hours without eating, which is a fairly long time.  Obviously, if you eat dinner at a late time, and lunch earlier, this won't apply.

I'm really amazed at how people can actually enjoy all the junk food. Isn't a nice fresh salad more enjoyable to eat than a Lunchable or a cheeseburger?

Huh, I'd thought that I had remembered reading that it was a myth, but after completing a bit of research, it seems that you're correct. I should have trusted you.

Regarding the breakfast thing... if time really is the issue here, go get yourself some of those flavoured instant oatmeal thingies.

Oatmeal is one of my fav things for breakfast. I just get the original, and add my own mixed fruit to it. Maybe one day it's apple, the next is strawberry.

That'd be even better, of course, but this is Bushie. Baby steps, Andrew, baby steps.

The idea that people find it difficult not to eat 3000 calories per day is really, really baffling to me. Maybe I'm under-estimating how many calories I do actually consume, but I think I would find it challenging (and expensive!) to eat that much daily. Do they eat ten extra donuts for snacks randomly throughout the day or something?

You weigh 5 pounds, Lief, of course it's foreign to you what fats do daily.  Smiley

This is going to sound excruciatingly lame and self-help but if you want to lose weight it's not so much changing habits as changing who you are. Don't become someone who passes up junk food for a salad, become someone who doesn't even consider the junk food as an option.

I'm with you on this. I'm currently at ~1000 calories for the day, with a target goal of ~3500-4000. That leaves 2500-3000 calories left for dinner and subsequent snacks. It's impossible to hit without binge drinking, but Bushie doesn't even do that!

I eat 3-4k calories per day without counting what is often a 1.5-2k calorie hit worth of beer.  I have hardly been exercising yet thanks to a blessed metabolism I am barely overweight.

I can definitely put away the calories when I'm drinking bourbon or PBR. Otherwise, yeah, I could never eat 4000 calories in a day, especially during exams when stress causes me to hardly eat anything.
