Dear Big Eater
Thank you for your good wishes which I reciprocate heartily. Don't apologise for the length of your post - it gives me more info on which to base my answer. The fact that your BMI varies between 22,1 and 22,9, which is ideal for adult women, indicates that you are not eating more than your body requires esp in view of the amount and intensity of exercise you do. Your diet sounds reasonable and should provide you with all the nutrients you require. Just be careful of not overdoing your liquid intake as this can wash important electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, magnesium and even calcium out of your body and cause so-called 'electrolyte imbalances'. Adults require 2,5 litres of liquid a day (this includes coffee, tea, water, milk, and any other liquid you may ingest).
Keep up the good work
