If you have been keeping up with my blog, you know that I am on my new meal plan. I decided yesterday that I wanted to make sure my food plan would match my macros. Macros are the three food sources: carbs, protein, and fat.
To find out your own macro requirements, check out these links:
MACRO NUTRIENT CALCULATOR
I combined the two to meet my needs. This is my macro requirements:
-129 g protein
-98 g carbs
-35 g fat
This is very important to look at because meal plans are based on individual needs. Every person is going to be different. I adapted my meal plan slightly so that it would be as close to my macros as possible. I used my app called "lose it" to find out if my food intake matched my macros.
5am 1/3 c cooked steel cut oats, 1/2 c egg whites, 1/4 c lemon juice
8am 1 protein shake( 1 c unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 a banana, water, 1 c spinach)
11am 1oz almonds, 1/3 c cooked steel cut oats
2pm 1 c steamed broccoli and 4 oz chicken breast
5pm 1 c eggplant and 4oz tilapia
8pm 1 protein shake ( 1 c unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 a banana, water, 1 c spinach, 1/3 c blueberries or 1/3 an apple)
I hope this was helpful! Also, its very important to drink enough water throughout the day. I am aiming for over a gallon a day.
Today's workout was as the gym and included shoulders and hamstrings with 30 minutes interval cardio.
This is the yoga video that I completed today: HIP OPENER YOGA
That's all I have for today!
