So here's some more info on the nutritionist from yesterday. I found her from doing an internet search in my area and she works at a local college and has a private practice.
Determine your needs for doing NOTHING AT ALL: (Basal metabolic rate)
females: 655+(4.3 x weight)+(4.7 x height) - (4.7 x age)
males: 66 + (6.3 x weight) + (12.7 x height) - (6.8 x age)
Then to maintain weight take that # from above and multiply by .30 and add the result to the basal rate above for moderate activity and .50 for high activity (runners).
To lose weight, take off 500 from the last #. To gain weight, add 500 to the last #.
For pregnant people, add 200-300 calories to that #.
Basic menu for 1500 calories
6 Bread servings (1 slice bread, 1/2 c cooked pasta, roll, 1/2 c potatoes)
3 veggies (1 c leafy greens, 1/2 c raw/cooked veggies, 3/4 c veg juice)
2 fruit (1 small piece, 1/2 c canned, 1/2 c juice)
3 milk (1 c, 1/2 c yogurt, 1 oz cheese)
2 fat (1 tsp margarine, butter, 2 T cream cheese, low cal dressing, 1 T salad dressing, mayo, 1 strip of bacon, 1/8 avocado, 5 olives, 10 nuts)
1 dessert (2 small cookies, 1 small piece of pie/ cake, 1/2 c ice cream)
2 meat servings (1 oz lean meats, poultry, fish, 1/4 c tuna, 1/4 c hummus, 1/4 c cooked dry beans, 2 T peanut butter, 1/2 c tofu, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 1 oz cheese
1600 add 1 bread
1700 add 1 bread, 1 oz meat, 1 fat
1800 add 2 bread, 1 oz meat, 1 fat
1900 add 2 bread, 1 fruit, 2 oz meat, 1 at

So today I started off with 2 cups of cheerios and 1 cup of milk, had a luna bar in between, where does that fit, not sure. Now I'm trying to eat this yogurt, it is pretty good. I picked it up because of its high protein count being that I'm a vegetarian. It is called CHOBANI Greek Yogurt. Not bad! Before that I had some crackers and salsa. And some dried cranberries. I've had 3.5 bread, 2 milks, 1 fruit, 1 veg, and a luna bar(?) My numbers came out 2369(I think she used my weight from March, 127 and I'm 5"4) - 500 to lose weight about 1869. I don't even think with trying that I reach 1900 most days. I'm going to try to reach the allotment of the above stuff but not stuff my face. Let me know what you think of the formula, if your # sounds high or whatnot. Back in college when I went to lose weight I was eating 1100. oops. Total starvation mode. Explains my crappy metabolism nowadays!
I like how one piece of bacon counts for the meat serving.

Recipe for shortbread: 2 sticks of softened butter 3/4 cup of sugar CREAM THESE TOGETHER Add 2 cups flour, gradually. Add in 6 tea bags (the insides) of your favorite tea. Shape dough into a log, place in refrigerator for 30 min, cut into slices, bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
Oh and I forgot yesterday when I ran on the TM I put the nike+ in action and this time it was actually telling me that I ran less than I did! By 0.6 of a mile I think! So running outside which is slower than my normal pace tells me that I'm running more and running on the treadmill at my normal pace tells me less. I don't know what pace I should try to callibrate the thing at!
