Need to narrow your calorie range (2200-2800) and be consistent. Then gauge progress.
Edamame, yogurt, fruit, granola, and peanut butter.
Consistent calorie deficit with well balanced macros. WIN.
Aim for a 300-400 calorie deficit.
Not sure why there is such a wide range for calorie deficit.
^That. Also, adequate protein and train hard/heavy.
I would add some salt and pepper too.
I hate your trainer.
Comes down to personal preference.
Some train fasted and don't need anything prior to training, some need a small meal, some need a ton of carbs, some just protein, etc..
Have to see what works...
I like it!
When progress stalls then can recalculate macros.
Eat calorie dense foods - peanut butter, granola, ice cream, pasta, whole eggs, cheese, nuts, etc..
Make homemade shakes - milk, ice cream, peanut butter, etc.. blend. Done in seconds. Liquid...
Not sure how you came up with those numbers.
This makes me sad.
Eat more on days I train back and legs. Training is more demanding. Need more calories.
