    Can anyone take a look at my food diary over the last 3 days, i've been getting within 100 calories no problem but my carb, fat and protein always seems to be alot left at the end of the day. Any tips on foods with low calories but with some fat/carb/protein in that i could eat as a snack to build it up?

    Also how important are these 3 things to loose weight?

    Thanks in advance. Red.

    I just had a quick glance at your diary but your bread, tuna & turkey aren't showing any nutritional info- for example your two slices of thick cut bread aren't registering any carb content at all, and it should be quite big? Also, the tuna is high protein and it's not registering in your diary either?
    Protein is vital in ensuring your muscles are protected during weight loss, carbs not so much. Carbs tend to retain fluids, and white 'unrefined' carbs are seen as pretty much the devils food on weight loss sites? You'd be better off nutritionally swapping white bread/pasta for granary/wholemeal types? These will benefit you in that the fibre content will be MUCH higher, and keep you full for longer?
    Also- regarding fats, the body needs a certain amount of fats, but try to keep these 'good' fats like ones found in oily fish and nuts? Avoiding ones found in biscuits/sauces/gravy's etc.?
    HTH a bit?
