Betsy and David had a fairly good and stable day today with eating. The weekdays are easier to get into a groove with. Betsy reports on her good day in terms of macro’s, and encourages interested followers to visit the Feed to Succeed website for more details.
David continues to be short on calories, although this is part of the grander plan for him to slim down a little.

Below is the breakdown of my day (Betsy). This was a GREAT day for me in that I was closer than usual to protein, carb and fat goals. Note that despite the above food, with very little added sugar except 1 small square dark chocolate, I still managed to exceed my sugar goal. This is a very difficult goal to achieve unless one intentionally limits their fruit intake. Which, as a dietitian, I can think of many things I would recommend limiting before one got to fruit. The recommended sugar goal may not actually be achievable, even eating an ideal diet, for an athlete.
