As I've said before in some of my previous posts - I had been in the Zone for about 4 years, and managed to slowly get out of it during my time in college.
Sometime last year I decided that I wanted to start eating healthier, but felt I wasn't totally ready to get back to the Zone just yet...So I had been tracking my food to make sure I stuck around 1200 calories per day.
Well I am still in the habit of tracking what I've been eating, and I noticed yesterday that I was only at about 1,100 calories and my food tracker gave me a warning that I was under 1,200 and stated that I should be consuming at least that per day.
I don't really remember calories being addressed at all in the Zone, so I am going to assume that I should only worry about my blocks and forget about the warning that my calorie tracker is speaking of <img src='desktopmodules/ntforums/images/emoticons/wink.gif' height='20' width='20' border='0' title='Wink' align='absmiddle'>
Is this a good assumption?
Just for an example, yesterday's food was:
