My goal is to add a bit of extra weight to my frame, mostly in muscle. I am a girl, 5'7 and about 115 pounds, with a 16.8% body fat percentage.
I don't count calories, but decided to do it to see how much I was getting in my diet: and came up with about 1750 calories on average per day.
I am a vegetarian, and eat clean. Basically my diet consists of things like fruits, veggies, whole grains, low-fat dairy, eggs, beans, healthy fats (like olive oil and natural peanut butter) and water. I generally eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. One of my meals is a protein shake...I make it a meal because it contains quite a few things (banana, natural peanut butter, yogurt, and protein powder) that make it higher calorie than the typical protein shake.
My exercise routine is quite intense, doing 3 P90X and 3 Supreme 90 Day DVDs a week, for a total of 6 days of intense DVD workouts. I also walk my dog on a daily basis.
So I guess my first question is: Do you think I should increase my calorie amount? And second: What are some healthy ways that I can add more calories to my diet? Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
