Hello everybody! My name is Nicole and I have been sort of browsing the site for awhile now. I have already lost about 50 lbs and now I am at a stall. I recently went pescatarian and I am having trouble with the breakdown of my macronutrients. I was doing a 40/40/20 before with 20 being carbs. Now that I am not eating meat (except seafood), i have been struggling with my weight going up from eating more carbs. Also i am having trouble getting enough protein. I find myself relying on eggs and peanut butter for breakfast and snacks. For dinner i usually do a veggie burger/fish/shrimp and veggies/salad. So my macro breakdown now is usually closer to 50/20/20 with the 50 being fat...which im not sure if thats bad or not.
So here is what i had today:
1 whole egg
1/4 c egg white substitute
1/2 whole grain rolled oats
1/4 c plain walnuts
Veggie patty (100 cals/2fat/2carb/12protein)
wrapped in butter leaf lettuce with a tomato and mustard
(no bread at all)
Homemade PB flax seed cookie
- This sounds bad but i use it for the protein. Its just peanut butter, flax seed meal, egg and splenda so one cookie has
13 g fat (9 of that being monounsat. fat)
4 carbs (3 g fiber)
7 g protein
2 cups mixed veggies
So far my fitday for today is as follows:
106 g fat (55%)
102 g carbs (23%)
92 g protein (22%)
This is a high calorie day for me. Normally I cycle between 1300-1600 cals.
here are my stats:
I dont know my bf% but i have a muscular/athletic build
thank you all in advance!
P.S. Just in case you were wondering, i generally work out 30-60 mins 5 days a week and alternate between cardio, circuit, and resistance work.
