This week I’ll try the fast diet and I created this menu to try the diet but I’m not sure if it’s correct, because generally the menus I see are simpler than this, seems to have less food, so I’m not totally sure I calculate correctly the calories.
Here it is:
– scrambled eggs (2 eggs) – 192
– 2 slices of turkey ham – 20
– spinach – 23
– Vegetables soup without potatoes
– 100g of turkey steak
– 30g of rice
– 1 apple
Any tips are appreciated!
Depends what you use to scramble the eggs – 2 large boiled eggs = 140 cal
Turkey ham = 30 cal/slice
Spinach – 1 cup raw = 7 cal
Turkey steak = 100 cal depending on type
Rice 30g -boiled = 35cal
Apple – medium = 72. Cal depending on variety
Veg soup – depending on variety as high as 220 cal.
Download an app, or use a web based calculator so that you can monitor your intake/calculate what you are eating & or missing in nutrition.
I’ve been thinking of starting a topic on those lines.
FWIW, I currently use both MyFitnessPal (app) & Cronometer (web based) both free if you use basic varieties as I do – leaning towards dropping myfitnesspal.
My fitness pal has a bigger database of preprepared/name brand or restaurant foods while chronometer uses USDA figures to calculate calories. If you do you own cooking, crono let’s you enter recipes & it will calculate calories/nutrition based upon what you enter. You can also scan barcodes/nutrition info from the package & it will save – haven’t tried that feature yet so can’ comment on how accurate it is.
Hope this helps

It's well researched in mice, very few human trials https://t.co/P02ivylkdZ
