Question: I'm on one of those programs where you don't watch only your calories, but also fat, protein and carbohydrate balance. I'm a cheese and milk lover and we usually have chicken every day in our family. Long story short, I find myself heavily lacking fat and sugar with excess protein compared to the plan. I was told that in order to make it work I should keep to the ratio I was given as close as I can. I'm trying to find a solution but it seems everyone has the opposite problem. Incorporating a cake every day to my diet is probably not the way to go (though I could make it work :-)

Hi, I am on a healthy eating plan that works on portions but not calorie counting, however I might be able to help you with the balance of your nutrition. My plan requires a daily intake of; 2 portions of protein 4-6 portions of carbohydrates 3 portions of dairy At least 5 portions of fruits and vegetables up to 4 portions of fats according to my dietician, the portions are as follows Protein - 1 portion = 100g of meat, fish, or soya protein or 1 egg or 6 tablespoons of cooked lentils (or other pulse) Carbohydrates - 1 portion = 1 medium slice of bread or 1 egg sized potato or 4 tablespoons of cooked rice, pasta or noodles or 2 tablespoons of cereal. Fruit and vegetables - 1 portion is 1 apple, orange, banana or pear or a handful of grapes or a handful of berries or a dessert bowl of salad or 3 tablespoons of cooked vegetables like peas etc. Dairy - 1 portion is 200ml semi skimmed milk or 1 small low fat yogurt or 30g low fat cheese. Fats - 1 portion is 1 teaspoon of low fat sunflower spread or 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil or vegetable oil for cooking or 1/2 teaspoon of mayonnaise or ketchup I balance my portions into 3 meals and 3 snacks each day Breakfast 2 carbs, 1 dairy and 2 fruit (porridge with a handful of blueberries or raspberries and a small glass of fruit juice) Mid morning 1 fruit (usually a banana or an apple) lunch 1 protein portion, 2 carbs and some vegetables or salad (usually 100g of fish or chicken or an egg with salad or cooked vegetables) plus 1 or 2 portions of fats in cooking, ie adding a little low fat spread to the fish or chicken with some herbs and cooking it in the oven Mid afternoon - 1 diary and 1 fruit (usually cheese and an apple or a yogurt and a handful of berries) Dinner 1 protien, 2 carbs and vegetables. (for example, a chicken fillet with rice and vegetables or spaghetti bolognaise made with 100g of lean beef mince per person and 8 tablespoons of pasta per serving with some salad) Again using 1 or 2 portions of fats for cooking. You could also have bread as yoour carb portion and use some low fat spread on it. evening snack - a low fat yogurt. I hope this is helpful.

are u on a diet? i can't see a proper protein like eggs, meat, chicken... a balanced diet should include a carb, a protein and a fat, with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. u can cut the fat out if u're on a diet. u should also drink plenty of water

Or like me get the internet taken away each and all the time by sus madres. i do no longer rather ask many questions era yet i attempt to respond to the TH questions that i be attentive to. And exceptionally lots each random query i answer i consult from TH or how sexy bill is. Even in Horoscope section, which I spend the main time in, I communicate approximately my Virgo lover boy named bill, giving him each and all the affection of his polar opposite Pisces factors. additionally interior the track section, I consistently recommand THs songs and write a singular long answer why they're so superb.

Good fats would be olive oil, natural peanut butter, fish oil, flaxseed oil. If your trying to lose weight, I suggest cutting back on milk and cheese. One serving of milk the most and fat free. Supplement with calcium and vitamin d. Brown rice, sweet potatoes and rolled or steel oats are best in carb section.

Dr. Dana is just proving that veterinarians receive crap education on animal nutrition. This is the ingredients list for Science diet Adult Large breed food. Whole Grain Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Soybean Meal, Animal Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Soybean Oil, Chicken Liver Flavor, Lactic Acid, Flaxseed, Iodized Salt, Dried Chicken Cartilage, Choline Chloride, Vitamins (L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Folic Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement), Vitamin E Supplement, Taurine, Potassium Chloride, Minerals (Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Sulfate, Manganous Oxide, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite), L-Carnitine, preserved with Mixed Tocopherols and Citric Acid, Phosphoric Acid, Beta-Carotene, Rosemary Extract. Yeah, really looks like real, healthy ingredients. The first thing on that list is corn, followed by by-product, which comes from a variety of disgusting sources it's not even funny. If you're going to pick from just one on that list, go with the Pure Balance. Generally yes, Ol Roy is not a good brand, but the ingredients actually include real meat. I believe you want to wait to feed adult food until the dog is at least one year of age. You may be okay since she's a month off, but maybe start off with puppy food (if they have a different food for puppies) but the switch to the adult. Keep in mind with better brands like kouneli suggested that the sticker price can be a shock, but you don't have to feed near as much of those brands as you would crappier brands like Iams and Science diet, thus you wouldn't be buying food as much. It's up to you, of course. :)
