    do you use any apps to track your calories? I use myfitnesspal, just enter your food and it does the rest for you.

    Don't have a lot of variation in meals. I've been eating the same meals for the last 4 months I don't even keep track anymore. If I eat anything more I make a note of it. Keeps it simple or something else I've done is have macros for like 3 different meals. And if I got tired of eating the same things I interchanged them and just swopped the macros. But even when I switch meals they are all pretty close to each other to where it doesn't make a difference.

    MFP has almost every food product available on its database.

    Spread protein intake out over all your meals. Makes it easier to get through it all
