Hi, PEPPERMINT131 -- I'm not entirely clear about your question; first, it's my understanding that a BMI between 19-24 is considered in the "healthy weight" range, so you would not be overweight at a BMI of 24, but would be in the high-healthy range so I'm not clear why you want to "get calories up without affecting carbs and fat." It does appear that you need to eat more lean protein -- the USDA recommendation calls for 10-35% protein, 20-35% fats (less than 10% saturated fat), 45-65% carbs.

You might want to send your question by Spark Mail to Coach Tanya, one of the HBP team co-leaders.

Best wishes,
Sandy

Labile BP. Systolic running 130's-140's.Diastolic running high 80's/low 90's.Trying lifestyle changes, along with carvediolol 2xs daily. Tracking nutrition for weight management. Trending pattern is under on calorie intact of 1480-1830. Yet, over on carbs and fat. Protein tends toward low side. How do I get calories up without affecting carbs and fat?
Since I'm overweight at 24 BMI, what would be a good BMI to shoot for and what do you recommend calorie count, carbs, fat and protein?
