I recently went to a nutritionist, who advised me to have about 1600 cals a day, 77 grams of protein, no more than 50 of fat, and up to 300 of carbs. The ratio should be 50-55 carbs, >30 fat, and I think 20 protein.
Well I am finding this to be an almost impossible feat. If I increase my protein to hit 20% I always end up having way more than 77g. My fat and carbs usually end up at about 40% each (trying to adjust back after a low carb regimen is really hard!) and if I ever do miraculously get the % ratios right, I am always over on the grams and certainly over on the calories.
Does anyone else have this problem? Of course she gave me some sample meal plans (they involve all these complicated snacks), but I do live in the real world and find that after I eat all the correct snacks and lunch, I barely have 200 cals left for dinner.
HELP! How do I DO this?
