    • It is entirely possible to eat chocolate every day but still to have a nutritious diet and lose weight. Portions!!
    • I've always been a foodie - and now I love devising meals that are filling and nutritious and moderate in calories but that taste amazing.

    In other words, this!!!

    THIS. I'm taking the little class on macros and it's like "preplan your day!" and I am still staring down a baggie of carrot slices and a yogurt (on top of dinner) and just... not feeling it. I feel like I have to eat constantly to get the calories/carbs/protein (BUT *WITHOUT* FAT) all in because I can't eat meals that big. I end up getting to the next meal and being like, "Do I want to eat? No. No, I do not." But then you get to the end of the day and you're short on everything and can't put another bite in your mouth.

    Also planning is a problem when I have to add another 15 carbs and 8 grams of protein with no fat and can't think of anything. Besides light yogurt and veggie sticks, of course, but without the dressing they're getting harder and harder to eat.

    @windscryer - is there a health reason why you can't eat more fat? If you need more calories since fat comes in at 9 per gram you'll get there far quicker with fat
