I know that Tim says that counting calories isn't necessary, but I have not been able to lose any weight or body fat so I thought I would take another look at my calories. I'm consuming so much more calories with this way of eating than I ever have. But if I lower my calorie intake, I won't be able to reach my protein goal. Should I just take in less protein?
Here is a typical day:
Bfast: 3 scrambled eggs w/spinach cooked in coconut oil with 4 pieces of homemade turkey sausage (about 4 oz). 700cal, 41g prot
Lunch: Green salad including lettuce, baby spinach & zucchini with olive oil & vinegar dressing. Topped with either shredded chicken or canned salmon. approx 500 cal, 31g protein
Dinner: Grass fed beef (8 oz), steamed veggies (either cauliflower or broccoli, sometimes avocado) approx 750 cal, 60g prot
