If you are planning on running then "good" carbs will be your friend. I run a couple miles a day and my carb intake is high and protein is low because I'm not working on muscle. I use the carbs for fuel and if I eat too much protein my body eats the muscle instead of the fat. I agree about portion control. Don't obsess but just watch what you eat. I tracked my eating habits for a couple weeks and found out I'm a grazer. When I get bored I eat, so now I redirect myself and say "okay am I hungry or bored?" I feel like crap when I eat just to pass time so now I chase Tristan around or clean or something. I'm size 3/4 and it only took maybe 6 months for me to get back down to that size (BFing helped A LOT) and I had gained 60 lbs during pregnancy.
