dinner/snack - 2 soft tacos from taco bell with another glass of tea.

snack - 4 famous amos cookies

Re: my diet...?

hmm ur asking what you need to change? um id say apart from the exersize, everything! thats all fast food? thats not in the slightest bit healthy, fine once in a while but i sure hope u dont eat like that 2 often.. you'll set ur self up for high colestarol, heart disease, obesity etc.. whos buying the takeaways? cos if its ur father, u could always ask if he could give u the money and go to the supermarket instead, buy sumthink decent!

Not really the healthiest choices...instead of those chicken nuggets and that half medium fry, you could have settled for a salad and a fruit cup (whatever that thing is they have).

Taco bell is also a bad choice

Although you only ate 8 famous amos cookies (i eat them too!) its about 300 calories. But its okay to eat those if you had eaten good the rest of the day.

I have to say though, you do exercise very well and thats definitly a good thing.....Just change your whole diet and keep the exercise and the water and tea.

LOL, I think he's just joking around,LOLLLLL.

But if not, then I suggest that since you have a computer..you can educate yourself about healthy eating. Plus, you can check the threads called "what we ate today" just to give yourself a start, or at least an idea.

Re: my diet...?

ok...im 16. and i know i ate a lot of fast food that day, but i was at my dads...plus im a teenager. i dont really believe that the right diet makes u cut out everything...say completely cut out pop, or candy...i think its just eating smaller portions of it...cause lets face it, im never gonna cut that out lol. but uh...i wouldnt criticize my eating habits lol, cause ive lost 90 ibs eating kind of like this...and it only took me 7-8 months...i just made my portion sizes smaller, i dont want to get into the habit of counting calories...i dont want to worry about it...i wanna live life, not let food live it for me...

Re: my diet...?

My brother is about your age and also basically eats like that. Until you're older, you can totally pull it off

A couple things I would suggest:

- at Mc'ds, try a side salad instead of fries- but if thats kinda too diet-y, at least try to get water or diet pop instead of regular pop, and don't upsize it! Also consider getting a grilled chicken sandwich instead of the mcnuggets

- At taco bell, try their fresco option (takes off cheese and sauce, adds a salsa)..or just ask for only a lil cheese and add the mild/hot sauce yourself!

- try to have breakfast- cereal and milk, fruit, eggs, cheese, toast, etc. It will make you less hungry later on..unless of course you wake up late in the day..then try to have a brunch that is somewhat healthy (ie/ has some fruits, protein and maybe calcium)

- Try to get in a lot of veggies and fruits...especially nutrient rich ones! Ask for them as sides in restaurants, or ask for extra tomato/lettuce on your burger/taco/etc, or have them as snacks!

Also, try not to eat out for the majority of your meals...its not that its completely unhealthy, its just that variety is key to a healthy diet! (It's also expensive!)

Hope that helps (Congrats on the weight loss too!)

Re: my diet...?

i usually dont eat like that. usually ill have a nutri-grain bar in the morning...a turkey sandwhich with some cookies at lunch, then sometimes ill eat out, or ill just have another turkey sandwhich and cookies. but i just got diagnosed with mono, so that sucks. ill prolly lose a lot og weight, cause im so tired and dont feel like eating.
