Recently my fat loss stopped due to what I think was eating too few calories. What I did was take a 2 week period off where i ate at my maintence calories. Which is 2400.
5' 7", 173 pounds, 12-13% body fat (educated guess here)
Here is what I plan on eating. I am shooting for 1900 calories a day. I started this phase yesterday.
Breakfast: 4 eggs, 1/2 cup oats in water, 1/2cup
Snack 1: Granny Smith Apple, Half a chicken breast
Lunch: Chicken Breast, unmeasured amount of green
beans and spinach (alot)
Snack 2: 1 cup plain fat free yogurt. 1/2 cup blueberries
(I like blueberries)
Dinner: 8oz 95% Lean Ground beef. again a ton of green
Snack 3: 1/2 cup 1% fat cottage cheese, 2tbsp peanut
butter strait from the jar
I don't count the calories from the greens, but without this comes to about 1750-1850. I read somewhere on here that you shouldnt count the calories of your green veggies. I'm concerned I'm not getting enough fat intake. I plan on doing doing this for a 2 week period to see the results then tweak if necessary?
Please comment. Thanks.
