This thread will be an example use of the Cronometer (http://cronometer.com/). My main interest is to see in what ways my limited diet is deficient. For particular medical reasons, this is what I eat: http://anti-itisdiet.blogspot.com/2010/ ... i-eat.html
Katydid has graciously offered to help me through the complexities of using the Cronometer. I am a novice. Perhaps others will benefit from my questions and Katydid's comments.
I tracked my meals (which are very similar) for a few days and then estimated for a week, to show variety over time and to allow me to deal simply in "round cups."
OVERVIEW OF THE WEEK: 126 C of food!
21 meals (3x day, ignoring occasional midnight mini-meals)
6 cups of food per meal: 3 C starch, 1 C veg, and 2 C fruit.
STARCHES per week (63 C)
42 C of potatoes (brown, red, gold, white)
10 C of pumpkin
11 C of yams
VEGETABLES per week (21 C, probably an underestimate)
4 C of carrots
3 C of green beans
3 C of eggplant
2 C of broccoli
2 C of cauliflower
2 C of celery
2 C of turnip greens
1 C of garden, "sweet" peas
1 C of artichoke hearts
1 C of mushrooms
FRUITS per week (42 C, probably an underestimate)
14 C of black grapes
6 C of bananas
6 C of apples
6 C of cantaloupe
3 C of dried plums
3 C of avocado
2 C of tomatoes (canned, diced)
1 C of blueberries
1 C of cherries, frozen, pitted.
Katydid, what do I do now? Do I need to download a program or can I do this on the Cronometer website?
Done. The process is slow, but I can see that it would be much faster with practice.Katydid wrote:Try adding today's breakfast and lunch and let me know how it goes.
