What I ate on Thursday #2

Tech asked about calories, etc., on last week's "What I ate" post, but that's not something I generally pay much attention to. Luckily one of my cookbooks has an index of this sort of information, so thanks to that and packaging labels, here's yesterdays' menu:

raisins (130 cal; 0 fat; 31 carbs; 1 protein)

Oh, and I drank four mugs of herbal tea, one mug of green tea, and one glass of water.

You know, that's more calories than I expected you to consume. I've been attempting to get my calorie count down below 3,000. Not so good so far.

Well, I'm sure it varies but that's a pretty typical day.

Just out of curiosity, right now are you aiming for 2900, or for 2000?

TECH said...

3,000 or below. Which is a considerable drop for me. According to my doctor, that's what I need to do. Then after six months or so at 3,000, we aim at 2,500. And eventually 2,000.

Oh good. Was a little worried that you were aiming unreasonably low right off the bat. Slow and steady....
