Re: Looking for some advice: Pure willpower at this point??

That looks great!

People look at me crazy with my dinner salads since I just grab the largest bowl in the house - fill it up with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, grilled chicken etc, and sit down for a feast. Funny thing is - it is hard to get over 500 - 600 calories with that - and that is adding a ton of chicken to it.

Yeah, what Renee said.

The steak in the pic was 12.5 oz, and the brussels sprouts were cooked with 4 strips of bacon. Try harder, haha.

Ha! I know - I really need to step up my game with the bacon and calories in general. I am 6' 3" 225 and programmed my calories in fitday yesterday and with grilled chicken, ribeye steaks, bacon and veggies my caloric intake still came out to under 2000 calories! I don't think this under 80 grams of carbs I have been trying to do is going to work for me - it seems like 100g - 125g of carbs is my sweet spot.
