    Does that look right?
    That is actually Macronutrient breakdown btw, not micronutrients. Very different categories. Hitting the proper macros is more important IMO. A well rounded diet would ensure no micronutrient deficiencies. Oh, I love the username btw. Hilarious. I misread it as Mcmantis the 1st time I saw it and didn't think much about it. Lol. Keep up the good work bro and keep learning!

    You know, I thought someone would read it like that. My friends called me that in high school so I owned it lol. I've been finding TDEE's for obese people (I read that they are different from people with less than 50lbs to lose) and I've learned that my:

    Body fat = 30%
    Fat weight = 76lbs
    Lean weight = 173lbs

    I'm perfectly content with sitting at about 12% body fat (195-200lbs I think). From there I will really start lifting assuming I can afford a gym membership lol.

    My big problem now is figuring out what foods I eat during they day meet my macros. I just need a solid meal plan.

    Autocorrect made that micro instead of macro.

    Do you have an app to track macros? It makes it a ton easier

    I'm using myfitnesspal right now but I'm thinking of finding another. I love that it has TONS of meals and accurate calorie and nutrient info, but it doesn't include macro tracking.

    Myfitnesspal is probably the most popular but my favorite is my macros+. rice and chicken is my go to meal for satiety, fiber helps you get full & stay full and I've found that a decent fiber intake really helps my insulin sensitivity as well.

    Sweet. I'll download it right now. Boil the chicken I suppose?

    Do whatever floats your boat, but I usually bake or grill.

    Fried in olive oil adds healthy fats as well if there's room in the macros.

    Very true, although I usually don't have room for extra fats as I am a huge peanut/almond butter lover lol

  13. Alright...I think I finally have a starting point for macros.

    40% carbs = 180g
    40% protien = 180g
    20% fat = 40g

    Since I have so much to lose I took 5% from fat and added it to carbs. I'll adjust as needed but this is based on 1800 calories a day.

    Are there reasons for cheat days or do they need to be totally omitted?

    If you need cheat day to keep your sanity, then yes. For pure weight loss, I'd think they aren't really necessary, even though an occasional cheat will not hurt your results.

  15. Well I had my cheat day today and I don't think I'll ever be doing that again. My stomach is destroyed and I feel like I've been beat over the head with a brick.

  16. Cheat days seem to constipate me

    They do the opposite to me

  18. Bring your fats to 50g and lower your carbs slightly or keep them the same. Your cals seem way low for someone your weight.
    I'm 6'4 249 ATM - was 260 on New Years and I'm eating 3,000 cals a day and still losing plenty but keeping my strength

    I don't lift or anything so I'm mostly fat. On top of that I'm only 5'9, 249.

  20. Is brown rice always supposed to taste like sadness?

    lol I always throw a little soy sauce in my rice.

    Lol, I was thinking about that for next time I make some. Or maybe buffalo with the chicken.

    Agreed. It's important to be happy with the diet process or else binges or lack of motivation can happen. I eat something bad daily (100-200 calories) and have a decent cheat day weekly ( 2500 - 3000 cal). Don't be afraid of enjoying your life in moderation. You'll hit your goals faster and more consistently when you are happy.
    I don't make sandwiches and I don't clean house BUT I do play PC games and lift weights. Instagram: unicorn_droppings_for_you

    I was thinking about finding something I like to have at the end of every day or something along those lines. Probably just some potato chips or cheese. Dear God I love cheese.

  25. Down to 247.6!
