jokeyboy - unlucky on the ballots. In London my ratio is 1/11, Royal Parks is 1/5 and GNR is 2/2. After my first in 2004 I had guaranteed entry (for a premium) - good luck with NYC.
On the subject of calories I'm fluctuating between 155-160 lbs. The RDA is 2500 calories and I'm running between 50-60 miles per week which gives me about another between 5000-6000 to play with. So this week I have around 23000 calories to replace (or 11.5 large size Dominos Pizzas). I try to keep the diet varied and healthy, most people don't take on enough healthy proteins so I am conscious of that trying to at least tick all the boxes at every meal. It doesn't always work like that. I would say, moderate sized portions, balanced, little and often and low sugar is the way forward. I don't really keep track but if I have a couple of greedy days/boozy nights, I'm snacking on the spinach fruit and water and trying to flush the excesses out of my system soon after.
The main problem is, beneath this skinny frame is old Jimbob, who has an insatiable appetite and a sugar addiction - the root of all evil.
