I guess I was trying to make up for my bad day on Saturday... a bit low on everything..

Sunday ~1100 calories

1c Puffins Cinnamon cereal (140)
Fiber One (30)
Almonds (80)
Milk (80)
*Had 18g of fiber, which kept me full and satisfied!

Dr. Weil's Chocolate Walnut Bar (190)- I bit into this and thought about spitting it out. But I was hungry, and I decided it was not so bad. But it tasted nothing like chocolate- I could not place the taste until I looked at the ingredient list. The number one ingredient= dates! If I thought about it as a date nut bar, it was great- it did not have enough of a chocolate flavor to pull off the name.

BBQ at MH and NW's - Chicken fajitas
2oz chicken (60)
La Tortilla wrap (90 cal 13g fiber!)
Guacamole (they now have 100 calorie packs of guac! How great is that?!) (100)
Grilled red and green peppers (15)
Grilled onions (10)
Salsa (10)
Arugula Salad
Sliced strawberries (10)
Blue Cheese (25)
Slivered Almonds (25)
Cucumbers (5)
Light Salad Dressing (40)

Skinny Cow Dips (80)
1/2 Cookie (I really need to get rid of these!) (50)

I just found your blog. I too started a CR study in February. I'm doing mine through Washington University in St. Louis. Who is running yours? My prescription is 1700 calories but I haven't once eaten that. I thought it was too high and now I'm eating about 1300 a day to try to get caught up. I got off track in the beginning so I'm not where I'm supposed to be. I've lost 12 pounds and I need to drop another 3 or 4 before I'm in the right place on the chart. Hopefully I'll be able to eat about 1500 a day once I'm back in line with the plan. It's all been quite interesting. I'd love to stay in touch.

Hi Amy,
Thanks for your comment. I would love to hear more about your adventures with CR :) Are you finding it difficult to eat only 1300?
To answer your question: I am participating in the CALERIE study.
How did your study determine your prescription? The CALERIE group is specifically studying a 25% restriction- so we are carefully monitored to stay as close to our prescription as possible.
I hope to hear more from you!
Thanks again!
