I finally tried the CRON-O-METER software out.

It is fantastic! Much more convenient then using the USDA web site for nutrition data, which is refreshingly simple.

I was shocked at the default (USDA) recommendations the software came with. I know they are padded, but I haven't looked at them in a long time.

Geeze, talk about sticker shock!

2764 calories AND 242 grams of protein!!
( for a 5 11 moderately active man, 185 pounds ).

The calories I can accept, I've burned much less all of my life than those quacky formulas say I should burn.

The protein recommendation is nuts though. I would have to eat a ton of nasty animal products, destroying other health recommendations, to get that much. If not that I would have to have several protein drinks a day, a lot of soy or a lot of gluten. I don't think I could get much more than 80 grams a day with whole unprocessed foods.

Good Grief!

I would be as fat if I tried eating all of those calories or getting all of that protein.

I'm glad I decided long ago to eat mostly low processed vegan foods, workout, listen to my stomach for hunger, monitor my energy levels and once I have done all of those things to ignore those recommendations.
