So far I have been keeping track of my calories, but not where the calories are coming from. Today I decided to plug in the last days worth of calories and realized how much protein I had been eating. Although I am not following the menu given by sparkpeople, I am slowly incorporating it's program to design my meal plan and keep in on track with the recommended calorie intake. So far I realized that I had been eating the recommended amount of carbs, but eating 70% protein instead of 50%. I have been eating lean meats (I LOVE these seasoned frozen chicken breasts 170 calorie already cooked, just heat and eat), soy, and nuts. I would barely have eaten less than 10 grams of fat if it weren't for these soy bars I can't seem to get enough of.
Is that OK to live off of that little fat?
It seems low, but in all honesty I am feeling full and very satisfied with my food selection. And I'm not sure if it's because it's high protein but I have been drinking like a fish!
