As I mentioned before, my last check in didn't go so well and I was sent to the nutritionist for advice - turns out, I don't think she's actually a nutritionist (she's also one of the trainers at the gym) but I think she has a nutrition background - I didn't actually ask her for her qualifications (maybe I should have).
She told me that I'm doing mostly the right things, I'm probably not eating enough, and my attempt at IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) wasn't quite right. I had my percentages out of line a little (not much, but enough) and I wasn't eating back enough exercise calories/underestimating the number of calories I'm burning meaning my body isn't getting the fuel it needs.
My Macros = 1500 calories NET per day
Protein - 35%/131g
Carbs - 25%/93g
Fats - 40%
I had inverted the Protein and Fat percentages when I was calculating this myself. Basically, following this plan, you can eat ANYTHING you want IIFYM. She's going to send me a meal plan tonight, we'll check in again in about 2 weeks and see how it goes. Once I get the meal plan I'll post a sample for you all to see. She's promised to work in all my favourite foods like cheese and avocado and - I GET TO EAT BREAD!
