    Hi Dick,

    Congratulation for making a plan and stick to it for 2 months.

    I am not sure you can get your daily nutrients from your diet. If there any variations at all, or it is the same everyday for the last 2 months? There are many reasons that we can lose weight and you are a man and walking 1.5 hours a day, in theory, you can drop a lot of weight even without changing your diet. As long as you build muscles you can lose weight.
    That is the basic premises of T-Tapp, changing the way we eat is not a requirement, but building muscles is.

    Your diet is high in carb... Very high in carb... Is the mixed fruit fresh fruit or is that from a plastic fruit cup? The corn is from frozen corn? How big is the potato? 1 lb Russell or 2 oz red potato?

    When we talk about nutrient, there is macro nutrient from fat, protein and carbohydrates. There is also micronutrients that are vitamins and minerals. You get vitamins from fresh fruit (not from a plastic cup or a can or frozen) and you get minerals from vegetables (leafy green) either fresh or frozen.

    Potato, other than the skin, has very little micro-nutrients. If you peel your potato skin or not eating the skin, you are not even taking in the nutrient from potato.

    Your macro-nutrient in this diet is skewed heavy on carbohydrates and low is fat, I do not see how it can be sustainable without pushing you to inflammation and diabetes (or high blood pressure or high tri-glycerides).

      My two cents is that you need more variety, especially in vegetables. How about having sweet potato (yams) instead of white potato some days. Roasted squash, spinach, kale, lettuce, whatever fresh produce is on sale is likely to be in season and the freshest. You can eat it raw, sauteed, or cooked into a soup. Frozen vegetables are a good choice, too, if you're in a hurry. They are usually frozen within hours of being picked.

      We cannot afford to eat much seafood but wild Pacific salmon is affordable in a can, at least where I live. I try to have a serving of wild Pacific salmon every week for Omega 3.

      That also looks a little low in calories, although I didn't calculate it. Do you get hungry?

      I used My Fitness Pal. It's both a website and an app for your phone. I can track my food and almost every day they suggest new recipes that have a lot of vegetables and healthy proteins. Some are low carb, some aren't, but all have a focus on whole foods. I don't feel good on high carb or low carb, I have to stick to the middle. But I have friends that feel great in the extremes, either vegan high carb or paleo low carb.

            Yes, dark leafy green vegetables, other nonstarchy vegetables....is it a cooking thing or a comfort food thing maybe? the meals given do seem to be carb-heavy....
