I tried the hemp milk for my son and he did not care for the taste, that being said, if he has too much soy milk, I notice a difference in his attitude.

Oh, and another thing I wanted to address; the fiber problem. If you eat more of the things on the calcium list you will end up over the top on fiber!!
We all need to get away from packaged, refined foods. That's where fiber really gets knocked down. Milk may have some calcium but it has no fiber.

Oh, and there are other kinds of milk substitutes available that are really delicious. Hemp milk, almond milk, oat milk just to name a few. They might not have as much calcium as soy milk, but... I've already said it.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Okay someone asked:
I won't use any soy products except the fermented kinds like tempeh or tamari. Soy isn't all it's cracked up to be it's a product of mass, clever marketing--do your research. That said...
Here's an idea;
This list is cut from a newsletter I subscribe to called "SixWise". I think they might have got it from the "Worlds Healthiest Foods" website. Here it is-top to bottom, the most potent to the lesser potent:

"Contrary to popular belief, dairy foods are not the only sources of calcium. Here are some of the best food sources of calcium out there, including not only dairy foods but a range of others as well:
1. Spinach
2. Turnip greens
3. Mustard greens
4. Collard greens
5. Blackstrap molasses
6. Swiss chard
7. Yogurt
8. Kale
9. Mozzarella cheese
10. Milk (goat's milk and cow's milk)
11. Basil, thyme, dill seed, cinnamon, and peppermint leaves
12. Romaine lettuce
13. Rhubarb
14. Celery
15. Broccoli
16. Sesame seeds
17. Fennel
18. Cabbage
19. Summer squash
20. Green beans
21. Garlic
22. Tofu
23. Brussel sprouts
24. Oranges
25. Asparagus
27. Crimini mushrooms"

There are some wonderful, scrumptious ways you can mix up several of the above ingredients to make a seriously calcium-rich meal. If you want ideas I have some or go to the WHF website. There's lots there
PS: I would switch the tofu for organic tempeh--just my opinion. Just one problem with soy: it's always GMO unless it's organic and...stop Aniduck!!
PS being below a bit on the carbs won't hurt; at least I've never felt it to be so.

I have done through trial and error. I have also found that by tracking after each meal, it's easier to keep up with the numbers than tracking everything at the end of day. Fortunately I am online all day at work and can easily log onto SP during my breaks.

I found that I get more of my nutrients in by snacking on raw fruits and veggies and staying away from the processed "healthy" snacks. I also switched to unsweetened soy milk which you can get in a variety of flavors. If calories are a concern then maybe have an am/pm workout routine (if you have time). It takes a lot of experimenting to find what work for you. Don't get discourages...we all tend to go over and fall short on goals. The key is to not give up. emoticon

If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

Yes the meal planner has all that figured out in proper portions for correct nutrients. Everything you need to succeed is right here. This is such a great place.

I eat lots of fruits and veggies which keeps my fiber up. The only bread that I eat any more is Thomas light multigrain english muffins which has I think 8g fiber, or Arnold thins multigrain which has 5 on the rare occasion of eating bread.

For calcium I eat yogurt, cheese (sting or in my salads), yogurt shakes and milk in my coffee everyday. I tend to stay on the lower end of the calories which are about the same as yours. I do have my days when i am at the high end. I have more of an issue of having to remember to eat, today is one of those days. I also have a snack both in the morning and the afternoon. When I finish a workout if I am not going to eat a meal about an hour later I tend to eat an apple with peanut butter and that keeps me happy until my meal.

Hope that helps

I am having a hard time figuring out how to get all of the nutrients I need, and not go over my calories. It says I should eat between 1200 and 1550 calories a day. I have logged all of my food for the day and I am at 1496 calories but am below my goals in carbs, fiber and calcium. How do you guys eat the recommended calorie amounts and get all of the nutrients you need. I have only 1 snack in there too. I think that is why I wasn't eating after a workout and then would crash in the late afternoon or evening. Today I had a good workout on exercise tv I did 20 min total knockout or something like that it was a good kickboxing video and then sexy and strong a very good strength training cardio combo plus 8 mins of arms. I had a string cheese and chocolate milk and water after my workout. Hopefully I won't crash as hard now. Anyway I have yogurt in the fridge but I always thought you should stay at the low end of the calorie range. The past few days I've stayed in my calorie range, but it has been at the very high end. I mean like just about 20 calories below my max amount. I guess what I'm struggling with is eating what I need to eat staying in my calorie range and getting the nutrients my body needs to be healthy. I really want to start getting the right amount of calcium because I heard it can help with PMS and the TOM is suppose to be in a couple of weeks, so we'll see if it helps. I sure hope it does!! Hope everyone is having a great Friday. emoticon I just remembered something else these numbers don't include any fruit and only 1 veggie. I have a feeling I'm going to go over on calories today. emoticon
