Hi I got linked to your blog from healthline blogs. I love reading RD blogs and learning ( I am currently going to school to be a Nutritionist.) How would you recomend figuring out totally calorie needs and splitting it up throughout the day. I am an avid runner so I sometimes dont knwo how to fit in more food corectly (without eating unhleathily.) I know each RD has their methods and secrets.
Love the blog.

I love your blog too!!! And thanx for reminding me of epazote. I haven’t thought about that herb in years!
I had no idea we had so much in common in terms of our backgrounds in journalism.

It’s nice to see you’ve been linked to my blog, and I’m happy you enjoy reading my entries. If there’s any subject you’d like me to tackle, just let me know! It’s also great to read you’re an RD in training. Best of luck! As for calculating your caloric needs, most nutrition practioners estimate energy expenditure needs based on resting energy expenditure (REE) and a physical activity factor then dividing the calories throughout the day accordingly. Nutrition data (http://www.nutritiondata.com/tools/calories-burned) has a simple to use calculator and would be a good start.
