Meal five: protein shake, 1/4 cup tuna, apple Have 1 whole can tuna here, 1 slice wheat bread and add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter to your apple to help get you some good fat in your diet.
have yet to get efa's.
according to fitday, i will be getting 157 g protein, 149 g carb, 52 g fat. total calories only 1645, while an estimated expenditure of calories is 2600 calories. so obviously this isn't gonna get it done.
add a 6th meal with 18 g protein i suppose, but am i overlooking something that i am 1000 calories short here???
regarding chicken breast, i always felt it just tasted too dry and prefer thighs
i just added 3 cups of skim milk which i can't go w/o. that adds another 270 cal and 27 g protein 39 g carb
