To get those extra 100 calories, you could have the shake which is mentioned in the pre-workout section, at 110 calories which is pretty much spot on...or...you could have 1/3 of the amount of oats suggested in that pre-workout area, which is 300+ cals in total so that would work out to the 100 cals you need.


It's just a case of finding the extra 100 calories, and to do that, you could eat 14 almonds, or have the pre-workout shake, or 1/3 of the oats meal (both of the last two are found in the plan at the link).




Basically, you just add up the ones you are definitely going to eat and then work out what is left that you need to make up in calories and select one (or a few so that you can swap from day to day etc) and add that in. That should work fine.


Does that help?
Got it, thanks.

Btb recommended at least 200 grams of protein though, and I don't think this diet has that much.

Should I just add the extra 100 calories and stay the course? Or try and find some way to get the full 200 grams of protein in...
