Run it through one of the online food programs like cronometer or paleotrack to see what the %'s are. Looks like a lot of protein as you mentioned. Might consider adding some potatoes, sweet or regular to the mix.

You definitely need to eat more. Eating too little can actually stall weight loss, not to mention seriously muck up your metabolism. I'd say go for at least 1800-2,000 calories/day. That's what I have to eat to maintain weight with roughly... (more)

It is very, very difficult to losing only 3kg when you are that close to ideal weight. Don't expect it to come off quickly, or possibly at all. Someone with 30 kg to lose will drop the first 3 kg in nothing flat, but the last 3kg not so much. It's... (more)

If the anabolic window is much greater than previously thought (24 hours), then why does calorie cycling work?

1edb06ded9ccf098a4517ca4a7a34ebc
foreveryoung 0 · September 25, 2012 at 10:51 PM

The answer is because the post-exercise anabolic window is not constant, but diminishes with time. Additionally, there are diminishing returns to calorie consumption beyond a certain point. This is because 1) you can only digest and absorb so... (more)
