Jane – Thanks for the response and the heads up about the protein. I was worried about the every three day but figured since everything was working okay and I felt great it wasn’t a big issue. Also I do not get the brown urine when I am drinking the 2 – 3 gallons of water a day, I get that when I am doing a lot of exercise (or yard work) and only drink when I get thirsty, since I have upped my water intake my urine is between clear and slightly yellow and I urinate about every two hours. I tracked my actual water consumption yesterday and I drank 1.25 gallons of water during my workouts and 1.1 gallons of water the rest of the day. As far as the protein goes I have updated my spreadsheet that I use to track my calories and carbs to include protein, fats, and sodium. Currently for the month (it would be too much work to update last months spreadsheet) I am averaging 81 grams of protein a day with the high at 99 grams and the low at 60 grams. After looking on the internet and finding that you need .36 grams of protein per pound of body weight and my body weight was 198 this morning I need about 71 grams of protein a day. So I will be leveling out the daily protein and reducing it to the 71 grams. Shouldn’t be a problem, I just need to sub another salad for some meat in my diet. I was really surprised at the amount of sodium that I am consuming, about 3 grams a day; I need to get that down also.

Diamond – thanks for the response. What I posted was somewhat misleading about the time on the treadmill. I do a 4 hour workout in the morning and a 2.5 hour workout at night. During each workout I do an hour on the treadmill then do a set of sit-ups, push-ups, lunges and squats, and then I do another hour on the treadmill. At some point this week I will be adding curls and presses with dumb bells to the workout. The total time on the treadmill is 3 hours in the morning and 2 hours at night. I have been fine tuning this workout since the first of the year and I do not believe that there is a more efficient way for me to lose weight and get into shape. I work from home on my computer and have my treadmill set up with a laptop holder and am able to work the entire time I am on the treadmill so basically I am able to do 6.5 hours of exercise using only an hour and a half of my free time. I have tried bicycling and jogging previously to get into shape but my energy level is the highest during the day and I cannot work while doing those other activities. About the fiber and complex carbs – I am currently consuming about 18 to 20 grams of fiber a day and that and the complex carbs will increase as I get closer to my goal weight. The most important thing for me right now is to keep my blood sugar down and losing weight is the best way for that to happen. Since the first of the year I have been able to reduce my insulin from 40 units a day to 4 units a day and my morning blood sugar has been reduced from an average of 150 to an average of 94.
