Hi guys - this is a repost from FA. I was wondering if anyone else had any input on whether I was on the right track... would greatly appreciate any feedback Just started the induction phase yesterday and want to make sure I'm within limits.
Workout sched: lift 3x a week, steady state cardio the other 3, 1 day of rest
Macro breakdown: 148g(P) - 30g(C) - 98(F)
Calorie target per day: 1598
Brekkie - scrambled eggwhites w/ skim mozz cheese (just need to use it up before I replace it with whole cheese)
32.8g(P) - 3.5 (C) - 13.3 (F) = 271 cals
Post-workout drink - 1 scoop egg protein powder (allergic to whey) with 1 tbsp double cream
25.6g (P) - 2.4g(NET C) - 11.1 (F) = 168 cals
Lunch - salad with chicken breast, eggplant, eggs, avocado, blue cheese, spinach with balsamic vinegrette
26.7g(P) - 8.4 (NET carbs) - 33.6 (F) = 447 cals
Snack - Broccoli with cream cheese dip
4.9g(p) - 5g(NET C) - 10.8g(F) = 139 cals
Sole Fillet with olive oil and asparagus/greenbeans/onions/garlic
35g(P) - 7.1(NET c) - 25.5g(F) = 378 cals
Snack - sugar-free jello
0g(P) - 0 (NET c) - 0(F) = 8 cals
Calories achieved = 1500
macro achieved= 121.4g(P) - 15.9(NET C) - 97.3(F)
Does my calorie target look too high if I'm still aiming for weight loss? is 98g Fat about right? Apologies for the questions, I'm used to eating about 90% clean most of the time so this is a radical change for me.
-Also one last question: is natural peanut butter ok to have the first week? I've read different accounts on that.. some people say you should only incorporate it after about 2 weeks.
