I have been doing Spark People for years now, I re-set my program so it looks like I am new, but I am not. I like the Spark people meal plans and the grocery list. Makes it wasy.
However, I started P90x last week and in one short week of just doing the P90X exercises only I have seen dramatic results. AND I was sick last week so my "bring it" was not what it normally would be. In fact, one day I was SO sick I had to stop after only 13 minutes due to all the coughing I was doing.
I feel better now.
So I am looking at the nutrition guide and it suggest a 50% protein, 30% carbs and 20% fat. I enter this in to my Spark people page and ran through what I thought would get me to those percentages and to my disappointment, it looks like one would HAVE to use supplements to get to 50% protein. Lean chicken and fish is going in the right direction but at the end of the day, I would still not be at that goal 50% protein and my carbs and fats would be too high.
Because my goal is to eat clean natural healthy food, starting in with processed food, like Shakology or whey protein powders, etc, does not feel like the right answer.
So I am currently frustrated and not sure what to eat.
And please, no suggestions to eat processed powders, shakes and bars. I want regular clean food.
