Macronutrients/ calories will be adjusted
Adjustments will be weekly and/or based on progress
Try to reach .8 grams of protein per pound of body weight
Protein not only helps support muscle but it is also thermogenic(helps burn fat)
Try and eat four meals a day, eating more often helps promote a more efficient metabolism
Don't starve! Going hours and hours without eating burns muscle and does not promote a healthy metabolism
For those that are having a hard time tracking macronutrients and/or don't want to take the time to get specific
Stick with 1 serving of protein and carbohydrates with each meal and 1-2 servings of healthy fats per day.
The goal is four meals a day with 20-30 grams of protein per meal.
Healthy fats include things like nuts and avocados.
