Majority of daily kcals from protein...

  1. Majority of daily kcals from protein...


    I've realized that it seems my diet is consisting of a majority of protein..I'm trying to lose fat and gain muscle to get very lean like I once was. I've been alternating lifting days with cardio. 2 hiit sessions, 1 aerobic cardio, and 4 lifting sessions per week. Legs, chest, back/bis, shoulders/tris. Lots of Olympic lifting...weekly I include front squats, back squats, dead lifts, RDL, overhead press, bench press, incline bench, pull ups, etc.

    My diet often consists of:
    Meal 1: egg white omelet with 1 full egg mixed in, all the vegetables in the fridge, sometimes half an avocado, and a bunch of lean ham

    Meal 2: ground turkey patty or can of tuna, apple

    Meal 3: 25 almonds or so, lots of mixed vegetables, chicken breast

    Meal 4: post workout 100% whey protein shake, piece of fruit

    Meal 5: 2 chicken breasts, mixed green salad, sometimes half of a sweet potato

    Am I eating too much protein, or not enough fats for losing weight? Please let me know what you think.

  3. Hard to tell without seeing the macronutrient breakdown but at a glance it appears that you are not eating enough fats and under eating by quite a bit. Calculate your TDEE (google TDEE calculator) and consume 500kcals less than that

  4. Thanks man. I had a good amount of more mixed nuts today than usual and enjoyed my best workout in a while.

  5. Yeah without a doubt I would increase fat intake and if your able to add carbs around your workout only. Maybe instead of a whey shake switch to an isolate.

    This. Increase your fats a bit it seems like you are lacking in that area but you kind of have a good idea what a decent meal plan should be. I usually add two-three shakes throughout my day but that's me. If you ever get a chance try Isotean, which is lean and if you want to you can always add a scoop of virtago for carbs.

    This, you need need to be recording everything. How many grams of carbs/fats? how many grams protein? You need to record EVERYTHING..then you cannot argue with the results.
