Don't worry-- a lot of us do not follow the meal plan to a "T" and still get great results. There are lots of people who have and are changing the plan to match up with their own dietary restrictions (some vegans even).
As long as you're eating clean, I think you will have success...

Thanks. I think I will change my cottage cheese to a 1/2 cup, and scale down on the talapia so that I can take in more calories through vegetables and legumes. It's confusing because in the video she says you should eat 8oz of white fish, but on the diet plan it says 6oz of lean meat. I'm going to try to swap out some vegan meals for fish too, hopefully that will be a little less severe of a change for me. Thanks for the help! I totally would not have realized the cottage cheese issue!

Its little things adding up. Low fat cottage cheese has alot more protein than the fat-free variety that is recommended. You might want to change that and eat less of that for now (1/2 or 3/4 cup). My cottage cheese has 17g to your 30g of protein.

Also, cut a bit of the tilapia. If you only eat 1 serving per setting, you are down to 152g of protein for the day. Or if you eat only 6 oz portions (as suggested on the plan) you are down 22g or so (coupled with the change in cottage cheese, this also should bring you into a lower range.)

Just little tweaks needed, I think, like slightly smaller portions of the other proteins including smaller scoops of protein powder. If you're not so hungry, eat slightly less--- you can gradually increase as the program progresses (you will likely be hungrier in the next phase)

hmm... those numbers seem way off to me. If you eat EVERYTHING she suggests, its only about 160g of protein and closer to 180-200g of carbs. Yes its high protein, but it probably shouldn't be as high as what you clocked-- especially if you're only eating 1500 calories (not sure that sounds like enough).
What you clocked is also far TOO LOW on Fat. 27g is the absolute lowest it should be (though I have trouble making it some days too, which just let's me splurge on an olive or something).

Could you tell us what you ate specifically??

Hi Everyone,

I just started this today and usually calculate my food so kept the habit.
I am a 28yo female, 5'7 and 150 lbs.

In following the meal plan on day one, it has me clocking in at 210 grams of protein, 1500 calories, 23 grams of fat, 117 carbs.

This is more than double the amount of protein I usually take in, and these macros seem to go against everything I ever learned about eating right. Maybe I was way off base? Am I right here? Is this healthy?
