Doesnt look to bad. Add another protein shake. It doesnt look like you are getting enought protein. And remember when cleaning up you diet and cutting calories to lose weight the protein consumtion must go up to ensure you are lossing fat and not muscle mass and are recovering properly. John berardi’s site can also give you plenty of nutritional information.
Try also eating fruit on an empty stomach. otherwise the fruit tends to ferment in your gut and go off. takes only like 15 for the fruit too pass, then eat your other items.
how much protien should i consume if i weigh 175 and im 6’2
Athletes usually are around 1.0g/lb. of bodyweight at least. I have read in other places it is suitable enough for active people/athletes to consume 1.6-1.8g/kg of bodyweight. What’s the best way?
