This is going to be hard to stick to. Who the hell told you to eat like this? Haven't you been paying attention the last three years Chaser?
Your BRAIN needs about 100 grams of carbs, PER DAY, to function right. You barely have enough here for brain function, much less supporting any level of active lifestyle.
What were you thinking?
Did you run the numbers?
It's barely enough to be sedentary with. If you're wanting to get active, you're gonna' have to eat more than that. Just how it is.
You can't starve yourself to fitness.
The 3800 calories above for me...is a DIET day, for a CONTEST. It's a LOW CAL day.
I don't know the gram weights here, but, I'm guessing there's not even close to even 2000 kcal here.
Let's say you weigh 200 pounds. Let's say you're not active. That's still about 3000 kcal a day you need, just to keep from losing ground.
Your breakfast is 12 grams of protein by 4...that 48 kcal...today, plus a tiny bit of carbs. That's stupid.
For lunch, there's around 30-40 grams of carbs... and some protein from the chicken...wild guess...20 to 30g... so... 30 *4 = 120 KCAL + 30 *4 = 120. That's 240 calories for lunch.
Now...remember...you don't weigh 200. You weigh much MORE.
Now, I'm not trying to be mean here, but, don't you think these things through and run the numbers? Have you been paying attention? AT all?
1 cup of brown rice is around 45 grams of carbs. You're barely eating enough to think straight.
