So, you know the drill. What did you young calorie counters (under 21)eat today?
Meal plans less than 1500 for females OR 1800 for males will be deleted as they violate CC guidelines and are unhealthy.
You need calories to grow, develop, and mature whether you realize it or not so PLEASE do not post low calorie meal plans. This is a space that should encourage healthy eating and give others ideas. I appreciate your respectfulness and abidance to the rules.
If someone posts a meal plan UNDER 1500 calories for sedentary females, 1800 for sedentary males, then please report it by PMing me with a reference to the post # so that it may be deleted. It makes it much easier to keep this thread healthy. Thanks!

No exercise, I am really worried that I am eating too much to be sedentary, I am 20 years old.
annie: no you are eating just fine hun:D! if i may, why are you sedentary? i mean normally when i'm on vacation i do a LOT of walking so just curious ahah. anyhow, i think that if you stay sedentary and eat around 1,500-1,800 calories you'll be good. vacations are supposed to be times to indulge a bit anyway and enjoy yourself:). have fun!
peanutbutter: well your right about the fruit lol! i think your dinner sounds divine but other than that, maybe a bit more grains tomorrow?
Peanutbutterxo: I'm with you on the fruit thing - I could easily eat like, 7-8 servings a day. However, that wouldn't leave much room for much-needed nutrients. However, apart from that, your day looked pretty good.
Annie: You're definitely not eating too much to be sedentary. Unless you were an old lady on bed-rest, that is.
Not sure exactly how many cals this is, because I didn't count or log it, but I'm fairly certain it's over 1500.

Fathers day lunch was big! I never have steak though! I downed that thing! It was soooo good! The rest of my family thought the steaks were huge but I ate mine up no problem, I wasn't even that full and everybody else was complaining of being stuffed! Maybe they filled up on rolls and other stuff like chips and dip that I don't really care for. Or, I can just eat more from all the running I do :)
exercise- 4.5morning run, 3.5 evening run
How do my eats look? Any suggestions?
tuuliculley: It really sucks that you're having a hard time with your self image..
But that really doesn't look like it comes to 1500 cals.
The smoothie ... 250-300 tops?
The salads, maybe 200-300 if there were potato and macaroni in there, veggie burger 110, spoons of strawberry smoothie: 50.
So MAX 750-800..
So, sadly: "If someone posts a meal plan UNDER 1500 calories for sedentary females, 1800 for sedentary males, then please report it by PMing me with a reference to the post # so that it may be deleted. It makes it much easier to keep this thread healthy. Thanks! "
You need to eat more - that isn't nearly enough.

Hey guys! I just wanted to answer why I am sedentary, I really am not, I walk a lot, but it's just everyday living stuff right now, and maybe 3-4 times a week an organized, longer walk. I am staying with some extended family because my home situation is tough, to be honest! But it feels like vacation. It is just really hard to fit in time to exercise properly, like I did at home. But 1500-1800 is okay as long as I am getting some walking in? I do NOT want to gain any weight. And some days my calories dip low, so maybe those help even things out a bit.
