I am trying to figure out how to breakdown my macronutrients. I always seem to go over my calories. Lets say I have figured out that I need 52G carbs, 31G protein, and 10G fat each meal. This is based on a 2500 calorie diet with a profile of 50-30-20.
Meal example: 1 cup of oatmeal= 54G carbs, 300 cals.
1.5 scoops low carb Grow= 30 grams pro., 165 cals.
This meal is excatly what I need but it has gone over my calorie mark by about 50 calories. This doesn’t sound like much, but when you add it up over 6 meals it comes out with a surplus of 250 cals. which seems like quite a bit (or is it?) when you are trying to lose fat. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
