Problem figuring out macro's
tomorrow will mark my first week of proper training.
I've got my training program sorted now, but I have some problems with my diet.
I forgot about macro nutrients.
When I was going to start a few month back when I didn't really know what I was doing, I went on a 3000 calorie diet.
The diet I follow now is the same as that one, I just took away 500 calories.
I realize now though, that doing so wasn't a good idea, because the macro nutrients wouldn't be balanced seen as I took all the calories off the carbs.
How do I balance it?
2500 calories per day a day.
.1 and a half cups of porridge
.6 eggs (4 whites, 2 whole eggs)
.2 cups of vegetables, 2 apples
.3 table spoons of peanut butter (got the organic one with no sugar)
.2 slices of whole wheat bread
.half a cup of rice
.1 piece of fish
meal 4 - PRE WORKOUT
.1/2 a cup of porridge
meal 5 - POST WORKOUT
. Post workout protein shake
.6 oz of sweet potato
.1 piece of fish
It was originally the diet from one of the 12 week teen bodybuilding plans on bodybuilding.com.
What I did was halve the amount of sweet potato and rice.
I don't know weather its complicated to workout, or weather I'll have to redesign everything, but it seems pretty confusing.
Can you give me some advice on what to do and how to balance my macro's?
