kellsmarie Posted December 2, 2013 Report Share Posted December 2, 2013 hey everyone! so, i am trying to stick to my recommended calories & marcos. im 5'6", about 135 lbs. trying to lose about 5-10 lbs but also trying to put on muscle so my calorie goal is set at losing .5 lbs per week. i use livestrong.com to track both of these it tells to stick to the following: cals - 1459fat - 47gcholesterol - 219mgsodium - 1751mgcarbs - 219gfiber - 18gprotein - 36gsugars - 29g so yesterday i was messing around with the site trying to make a "perfect" diet plan for this week. right now, i have 1122 cals which include: breakfast:1 egg1/2 avocado1 smoothie: 1/2 banana, 1 cup silk, 1 cup yogurt, 1 cup strawberries, 1 cup spinach lunch:2 servings whole wheat pastapasta sauce1 apple dinner:1/2 chicken breastbroccolisweet potato snack:2 cups white kernel popcorn this puts me at: cals-1122fat- 28gcholesterol - 246mg (over)sodium - 962mgcarbs - 186gfiber - 35g (over)protein - 44g (over)sugars - 48g im really stuck as to eating more. because i know it's important, however if i have another apple im over on sugar. if i eat a whole chicken breast, im over on protein. but im pretty far from my carb goal as well! any guidance?
