Jessifly wrote:This will be a quick blog update... I just plugged into fitday everything I could remember eating today and was pleased to see that I met almost all nutrients with 95% or higher of RDA all from natural food source. With the exception of course of Vit D and B-12 which were 0% but I supplement those. And zinc and selenium were low again (abt 50%). I thought I had eaten quite a bit more today but found my calorie intake was approximately the same. Still feeling sniffly and stuffy, but much better overall... I actually had my voice back today for the first time in almost a week :)


Chlorella is REALLY high in Vit D. I've been taking suggested dosage but only every other day. It gives me good piece of mind during the winter months. Once the summer months come I have no concern with D at all. I'll probably continue with the Chloressence though...it seems to be one of the few supplements that I'm having a hard time giving up. It also registers fairly high in b12 but there is some some controversy over the body's ability to use it as it is a different form. I don't quite understand it yet though. I've been supplementing with B12 sub lingual for approx. 2 months now and a recent blood test revealed that it was just slightly above the lowest value in the normal range. Still acceptable though. I feel like a million bucks, and the rest of my blood numbers were within the mid to high normal range according to the doc, so I'm beginning to think that B12 is just a little over rated. Still important to have some in ya though.

Good on ya for keeping track of everything you eat. I tend to have a hard time doing that.

Thanks Kev! This really helps! So I'm adding brazil nuts for selenium, chlorella for vit D and I discovered pumpkin seeds are high in zinc... so I look forward to seeing what my new numbers are after a day of adding these in to my food intake. :)

I don't measure ANY of my food. I can't stand it. How do you manage to stay so consistent with that?

I can't stand it either actually! Me and consistent just don't go together in a sentence about food... but I'm trying to change that and hold myself accountable for my inconsistencies.. so that is my goal.

Thanks for frogging my blog Richard!

Yesterdays food log looked pretty good!

<img src="http://img80.imageshack.us/img80/9747/32208zm0.jpg">

I added a b-12 supplement as well as chlorella for the vitamin D. Calories were 1834. I ate a brazil nut for the selenium and added pumpkin seeds to my smoothie for the zinc. Now I need to up that calcium and niacin. :)

Yes, I ate a lot of raw spinach yesterday :)

The chart includes only foods I ate, not supplements (b-12 & chlorella). I think there is a way to add this info into the chart though, I'll have to figure out how. :idea:

Yesterday I had a great workout OUTSIDE of the gym routine! I went rock climbing with my new climbing group for a good 3 hours until it got too dark. It was rainy and slick though, very challenging but soooo much fun. I am enjoying that "good kind" of soreness in my arms and shoulders today :D

Looks like you had fun. It also looks like that picture was taken early in the morning. I like those charts you had up for your food intake. I've started tracking my food, what program/website do you use?

I am using fitday

Speaking of fitday...
I am having trouble with plugging in green powders (right now I am using up some earth promise I have), it says that the calories are incorrect because the formula for calories/protein/carbs/fiber doesn't calculate.. anyone else run into this?
