Today's Cooler... 1466 calories including dinner

Today's cooler is more on track. I'm at 1466 calories (including dinner) and 40% protein, 37% carb, and 24% fat. I got several questions yesterday regarding how I hit so tight on my goal numbers... my friends! That resource is a life-saver for me! Here's how it usually goes... I pack my cooler then head to the office. I take my pics of the contents, then plug it all into Fitday. The program totals me up, and I can see right away if I need to tweak anything. The most common tweak I'm making now is to my portion sizes. Having gone from 1800-1900 cal/day down to 1400, I need 3-4 ounces of lean protein instead of 5-6. The Fitday program allows you tot make adjustments up and down, and recalculates everything. Yes, it takes time, but to me, it's worth every second. It's a free resource, too.  :-) And I like free. I like it alot.

Here's my cooler and data (click on the picture to go to the Cooler Page with the other pics and nutrition info).
