    I have been working out and trying to eat right for 3 weeks now. I love the way I feel. I am not sure if I am eating too much or too little. This has been my typical day.
    6:30AM: Breakfast - 2 eggs fried using Pam, 2 cups coffee with 1 sweet n low, and a little fat free half and half, 2 slices of whole grain bread, and 1 glass of water with my vitamins.
    8:30AM - 1 diet Pepsi
    11:00AM: 1 banana, 1 apple and about 12 nuts (almonds, walnuts and peanuts.
    12:30 A large salad consisting of 2 thin slices of low salt/fat ham, 2 thin slices of turkey, 1 slice of low fat cheese, and about a table spoon of sunflower seeds,
    I use about a tablespoon of fat free Balsamic vinaigrette dressing. 1 - 9OZ bottle of water.
    3:30PM: 1 non fat yogurt, 1 bottle water, about 12 nuts.
    4:30PM 1 banana
    5:00PM 1 apple
    6:00PM workout
    7:30PM A protein shake with a banana, 1 table spoon of peanut butter, 2 table spoons of ground flack seed, 1/4 cup 1% milk.
    8:00PM Dinner - 6Oz steak or chicken breast, and vegetable (either corn, Broccoli, or green beans)
    Unfortunately I don't like many vegetables, and a glass of water.
    10PM: Bed.
    What do you guys think? What changes would you make?

    Try one of the following
    Fit day

    They are both for calorie/nutrition tracking.
    cron-o-meter is downloadable for free while fitday is only free when using web site ($30 download).
    fitday download is pc only, cron is windows, mac, and linux friendly
    Just punch in what you eat and it will give you totals and breakdowns on everything.

    fitday adds exercise tracking (calculates calories burned for 30 minutes of running for example)

    And yeah, looks good, but like stas said dump the diet pepsi, go for some tea if you need the caffeine boost add honey if you need sweetner.

    Ok, good start on breakfast however the breaks in your morning feedings are too far apart; @ 8:30p instead of the Diet Pepsi (not great for you, however won't kill you, yet ween yourself off it) throw in a fruit or 2/non-fat yogurt/maybe a protein bar. That 6:30a til 11a spread w/o real nourishment is NOT good for you! Drink more water throughout the day; add lemon to it of you don't like plain water. Starting @ 3:30p your feeding intervals increase WAY too much, keep the intervals about 2-3 hours (2 is preferable).
