    Default CONTEST: Eating clean - Day 5!

    It's nutrition week day 5, how clean are you eating today?

    --

    It's Fitness Month week 2, and that means nutrition, and that means our Eating Clean contest! Every day this week there'll be a thread in our health and fitness forums, and all you have to do to enter is tell us what you ate during the day. The idea is to get a little community pressure going so we all eat less junk food and more healthy, tasty meals and snacks. If you have a food tracker, a Withings scale, or any other device that helps you out, you can simply share your results each day!

    This is a great way to keep us all motivated and accountable, and get a little healthy peer-pressure going! Plus, every day you enter is a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! How's that for motivation?!

    So get ready, and get posting in the thread below!

    Just completed my afternoon snack... it consisted of:

    1/2 cup Greek yogurt
    60g fresh blueberries
    1/4 cup of Sprouts bulk raisin granola
    24 whole raw almonds.

    The nutrition:
    Calories: 250
    Carbs: 32g
    Fat: 15g
    Protein: 21g

    I started cleaning up my act on 19 Jan 2013. Since that time I have had
    No soda (Diet Pepsi by the case before - went "cold turkey")
    No salt added to anything I’ve eaten or prepared
    No fried foods
    No chips, cookies, cake, pretzels or popcorn
    No processed white flour
    No foods/additives/preservatives that my 8 year old granddaughter can’t read or pronounce

    The snack (above) would have been something that I "passed" on in favor of something fattening or unhealthy.

    In the same time frame I have eaten:
    Leafy greens every day
    Fresh fruit
    Fresh vegetables
    Cottage cheese
    Greek yogurt
    Healthy fats (olive oil, avocados, fresh raw nuts)
    Water by the gallon. (I average about 12 cups per day)
    Fresh seafood (wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon is my favorite)

    Today's cuisine highlight was a "french lunch" - high quality bread, brie and grapes. The other meals were mostly fruits.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).
