Use the Chipotle Calorie Calculator For a Dose of Reality

January 18, 2008

I’ve mentioned numerous times before how a part of my current diet strategy is taking my old standard meals that I am used to eating and optimizing them to find the perfect portion sizes that still satisfy me.  See Even More Paring Down at Noodles & Company as an example. Another restaurant where I eat […]


Can I Drink My Calories?

January 14, 2008

  I’ve already seen a couple of times on The Biggest Loser this season (be sure to tune in tomorrow night!) where while counseling someone Jillian will say “you can’t drink your calories, dude.”  Or something like that.  You get the point.  Eat, don’t drink. Now I am assuming she is talking about empty calories […]


Analyzing The Weekend

January 8, 2008

As I wrote in my update yesterday I didn’t have a good weekend diet-wise and that contributed to a gain for the week.  Now is the time to go back and analyze what happened so that I can do better next time.  I really don’t know where this post is going to go since I have […]


Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds

November 22, 2007

Without a doubt one of my favorite snacks is a handful of Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds. A serving of 28 almonds is 170 calories, of which 140 is fat. I have to say I was pretty happy to read somewhere that almonds made a good healthy snack. If it isn’t true, don’t tell me! I […]

A Few Questions About Calories

November 19, 2007

I got to thinking this weekend about calories.  In particular, how many calories there were in some soup I was thinking of making from scratch.  Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do I figure out how many calories (and other nutritional data for that matter) are in something I make from scratch? I’ve […]


Be Careful with Those Salads

October 6, 2007

Diet Blog points to an article on AOL (I didn’t even realize they had websites!) called Unhealthy Restaurant Salads that was a real eye-opener for me. It really shows why it is so important to pay attention to the details of what you are eating and the importance of education. “I’ll just have a salad” […]


The Benefits of Chewing Gum

October 2, 2007

Last week the Diet Blog asked the question “Chewing Gum for Weight Loss?” to which I respond, “Heck yes!” I currently have a pack of Wrigley Extra in my car, my desk and my backpack.  This gum helps me in three key ways: My body has been trained to have sugar after a meal.  I can’t help […]


Food Journal

September 13, 2007

Yesterday was a good day overall; I put in 40 minutes of strength training in the morning and 25 minutes of cardio in the afternoon.  My eating was right on plan, in fact a little less than usual since I didn’t have much proteins that I would normally have for breakfast or dinner. At no […]
