Guys i am just curious as to how many calories i am ingesting. I never thought i would say this, but i am actually quite satiated with only 2 meals a day. Apart for the chocolate cravings, i am really full with just two meals. In between i have a few slices of bacon and even a few raw button mushrooms. My two main meals are an omelette that consists of 1 onion diced, 6 eggs, and 5 strips of bacon diced. My next meal is basically 3 to 4 large chicken breasts that weigh roughly 320 grams each.
Thanx for any feed back guys. You have all been, and continue to be so helpful :-)
If you want to check your calories, you can use either http://fitday.com/ or http://cronometer.com/ Both have free versions that you can plug your food into, and then get stats on calories, nutrients, macronutrient proportions, etc.
If you're adding the bacon to your eggs while it's raw, or using its fat to cook your eggs, you're easily consuming about 300 calories from the bacon alone, plus the eggs and onion, to total about 800 calories for your breakfast.
Your chicken is about 1150 calories for about 1000g raw chicken (or 1460 calories for approximately 1300g of chicken), and if you're using fat to cook it, then it'll be higher.
Your snack of bacon and mushrooms can be anywhere between 150-225 calories.
I estimate your calories to be around 2250-2500-ish. If you eat chocolate, depending on how much you consume, you can tack on another couple hundred calories to it.
I got these estimates using CRON-O-Meter, by the way. I use it myself to keep track of my numbers. It's freeware, and it's pretty awesome. :)
It all sounds fine to me, but most of the science says you'll get better results from your metabolism if you eat 5 times a day. (Three meals and two snacks). Also, it'll help a lot make sure you eat within 30mins of waking.
