This post is a placeholder and will be updated

Welcome to PricePlow’s Diet Tracking squad!

In this thread, we’ll support each other in accomplishing their dietary goals. And in order to best do that, we’re going to track our diets! Specifically, with MyFitnessPal.

How it works

Every night (at 4am CST), our system will check your diet from the day before, and compare against your calorie and macronutrient goals entered into MyFitnessPal. It will then broadcast your numbers to the group.

How do I Join?

  1. Create an account here on the PricePlow Forum if you haven’t already.

  2. Create a MyFitnessPal user. Keep your username handy.

  3. In your MyFitnessPal Settings, go to your Diary Settings, and
    a. Set your Nutrients Tracked
    b. Set Diary Sharing to Public

    myfitnesspal-public-diary-settings
    c. Click Save Changes

  4. Go to your MyFitnessPal Goals page and set your daily nutrition goals

  5. Go to your PricePlow Forum Profile Preferences page
    a. Enter Your MyFitnessPal username

    image
    b. (Set any other options we may add in the future)
    c. Click on Save Changes

That’s it! Now start eating for your goals, weighing your food, and tracking with the MFP app/site – your data will soon be displayed here!

Future

  • We will enable you to set if a goal is a min or a max (ie. bulking or dieting)
  • Pats on the back for those who need the carrot, and…
  • Public shaming for those of us who need the stick

Now let’s get ready to rumble!! The machine fires up tonight and we’ll announce it once we have the bugs worked out!

Now this is what I call accountability…LOL Right now my diet is eating anything since I am having surgery. I know not the best thing but I am making the most enjoyment out of this downtime as possible, plus its the holidays. When I get back into serious training and dieting, count me in! I like this accountability feature. :slight_smile:


Another Shoulder Surgery

Allright cool, it’s working!!

I started this eating cycle at fasted glucose 78, ketones 1.4. I trained at 7:30pm but wasn’t the most aggressive workout in the world, only 600 calories burned per my Polar, so my heart rate wasn’t going crazy.

My fast after eating this started at :clock930: 9:30pm so I’ll check in on ketones and blood sugar at around 2pm, 16.5hrs later. If things are good then I’m going to nudge protein up.

I’m not currently concerned about fiber (want to do more research but I’m not convinced it’s necessary if you can get/produce butryic acid) and the potassium number should be a bit higher since I forgot to log a dose of Lo Salt.

But if I’m not eating a ton of beef, avocados, or enough nuts (or supplementing), potassium seems to be a problem for me. Need to get blood tests to see where I’m at though.

Biggest concern - this AM’s weight is 182.5, goal is to stick to 185. Very light eating two days ago got me.

Ha awesome, enjoy it through December and don’t let the sugary fats (cookies) get in the way of protein. Keep protein high post surgery!

@scotprice in the house!!!

I’m losing too much weight. 182lbs. Buying more beef today.

This is crap. I’m quite confident that beef has a good bit of potassium and I ate a bunch of it yesterday. May have to develop my own beef labels if I care about potassium.

But also forgot to log my Lo Salt


#10

Weren’t you taking potassium citrate? What happened to that?

I have a bag upstairs. My sodium isn’t especially high either, so I can use this as salt and as a first-thing-in-the-morning kind of drink

Oops, forgot that I closed the night down with a protein shake at about 8:30pm. Once we get this thing rolling, that would have cost me. So I ended up at 130 protein.

Got a feeling I’ve been knocked out of ketosis a bit hard here… to be continued…

Oh and should we have an Active Carbs number underneath the fiber that subtracts fiber from carbs?
