What it is y’all. It’s Thursday, and that means it’s a rest day for me. Today will be higher-fat and lower-carb as compared to yesterday, and much less calories. Yesterday I clocked in at 2,680 calories with 63.7g fat, 168.5g protein, and 386g carbs. Today I’ll be aiming for 1,590 calories, 78g fat, 159g protein (same target as yesterday, I just ate too much protein ), and only 62g of carbs. Big difference from 386!
Tracking has been a HUGE part of the progress I’ve made. Don’t rely on your memory, it’s not as good as you think! At least mine isn’t. I make spreadsheets every morning of what I’m going to eat, and I try to hit my targets as close as I possibly can. I even put little checkboxes in the cells so I can check them off once I’ve eaten them, since I have the same thing multiple times a day sometimes.
I usually come within 50 calories over/under, within 10 grams of fat over/under, I’m usually over on my protein but I don’t worry about it too much (I can’t help it that there are trace amounts of protein in EVERYTHING!), and I usually try to hit my carbs right on. I try NOT to go over on carbs, at least not by too much.
How do you guys track your meals? Do you do it up in your head? Or do you have a system? I’ve been looking for a great app for this…maybe I’ll just have to build one myself. 🤓 Have a great day y’all! ️ - 1 hour ago
