Hi Ladies!! First of all, I just want to say what an awesome forum this is!! You ladies rock! I just bought the competition ebook in December, but had been reading the info here and watching Kristin's videos since September. So, here's my question:
I really cant believe how much food I am suppose to eat...Oh, man!!! Here's my stats that the spreadsheet gave me:
Body Fat % 16.78 My goal is 10% by 4/9/17
Bodyfat lbs 22.32
Lean BM 110.68
I am 46, 5'4" and weigh 133 currently.
The spreadsheet says my daily target cals should be: 1889 and my BMR: 1318.15
I set my macros at 45/35/20
I am just REALLY nervous by that many cals to lose weight!!
There are some days I cannot get in all my meals. It's usually one of my morning meals (carb and fat) On those days, do I need to still try to eat the meal I missed alongside another meal, so I can get all the cals/macros in for the day? Or just not eat it?
I think I just need to shift my mindset to it being okay to eat this much, but would love to hear some feedback.
For instance, when I pick any veggie for my carb for meal #5, it is usually at least 5 cups or somewhere around 550 or more grams of that veggie! (Ex: green beans 590 grams, cauliflower 548g)
Thanks in advance for any feedback regarding this - and what to do about that missed meal!!!
