Thanks fellas. JD, that's the rub is the 3-4 weeks strict and consistent. I usually fail somewhere during the first weekend and start slipping badly somewhere around a week after that.

I'm hoping this food log will help as I will be pretty embarrassed to write about that bag of chips and bucket of salsa I demolished instead of the meat and vegetables I should have been eating.

BTW, I'm not hitting a calorie target per se. I am just trying to eat normally and clean, track that for a few weeks and see where I am in terms of what I need per day, etc. I've used those calculators in the past and they seem either too high or too low.

So, this time, I have no target going in. Just eat intelligently and not emotionally and see where the chips fall.

I like that fitday also tracks your fiber, vitamins and minerals too, btw. Turns out I am not getting enough vitamin C regularly. Might need to go with an orange a day or something to bring that up.
