Good grief: those Baseline calipers are $150.

I currently use these:
Amazon.com: AccuMeasure MyoTape MT05 and AM-3000 Fitness 3000 Personal Body Fat Tester Kit: Health & Personal Care Amazon.com: AccuMeasure MyoTape MT05 and AM-3000 Fitness 3000 Personal Body Fat Tester Kit: Health & Personal Care

I'll plug some data in to that calculator which should be more useful than just relying on the age-based card that came with my cheapo calipers.

Salad is easy if you're trying to stop a few pounds. I use the myfitnesspal app to track everything.

If others use this app, we should share user ids and link up. It allows you to see everyone's food diary
How the heck are you staying under 60g of carbs a day? according to the myfitnessapp a banana is 54g alone. I am lucky if I stay under 150g a day.

Also, how do you look at friend's diaries? My roommate uses it but all I can see is his generic updates like "he finished his diary and was under his calorie goal"

How big is your banana? Google says 27g of carbs.

Well that's a pretty personal question

I would say medium to large. "medium" says it has 54g

EDIT: I'm an idiot. The first time i selected that i bumped 2 servings by accident. Then every time since then it suggests it as a "recent" choice so i just kept selecting that. Makes sense. Yay for less carbs than I thought! (I am still at 79g though only having eaten 2 small turkey sausages, some kefir milk, a cup of carrots and a banana so 60 seems unobtainable to me)

Low carb diets you need some fiber supplements or be prepared to spend an hour trying to ****.

Unless they're also high fat, then it just slides right out.

I don't know about you guys but my protein shake has a butt load of fiber in it. And I also dont count veggies as carbs unless they're wicked sweet like iceburg lettuce, actual science be damned.

This is where protein with milk shines. You'll **** on everything.

At one point i used to eat nothing but chicken (with very little something on the side).. never had issues.

My father is a trainer so he was able to borrow them for a day. But yes theres much cheaper choices.

Im pretty sure I have IBS or something in addition to a gluten intolerance. I used to go like 6 times a day or more, pretty much after every time I ate, when I was eating alot of pasta etc. Now I only go a whopping 4 times...yay?

The only way I have noticed I go less/have trouble is if I haven't drank much water. I norm have like 10cups a day at least.

If you have IBS you need to go an a food sensitivity elimination diet.
Meaning you remove all of the most common foods that people have sensitivities to for a month, then reintroduce them one by one for 2-3 days and see if your body reacts.

The most common sensitivities are:
- lactose
- gluten
- casein (dairy)
- lectin (nuts)
- nightshades (cauliflower, peppers, etc)

You can shortcut the above by doing tests by one of the following companies:
- Alcat
- Entero labs
- Cyrex labs

The standard MD food sensitivity panel is worthless because of the high false negative rate.

You also want to read up on:
- GAPS diet
- Autoimmune paleo diet protocol

I'll look into those, thanks for the suggestion.

I did the SCD diet for about a month to help identify triggers. I already knew I was lactose intolerant, now I discovered I am gluten intolerant as well as nuts. So no more pasta which I used to nom all the time cuz its cheap and delish. Now I pretty much eat lean proteins (turkey/fish/chicken/eggs) and fruits and veggies and thats it. I can still manage to tolerate a cheat meal now and then so I dont go crazy but every time I do it reminds me why I gave it up in the first place. I never thought I would consider sushi a "cheat meal" Getting old sucks.

Even "healthy" not **** food has a lot of carbs. Banana is 27g, Kefir milk is like 29g so my breakfast is already ruined me for a goal of 15-20. What did you eat? tuna, eggs, and water?

Eat 3-4 raw every morning. Put them in a cup and eat them. Do it.

Eating them raw is completely unnecessary as there is no meaningful change to the proteins during to cooking process. Raw eggs are disgusting.
