    50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat meal plan

    Can somebody give me a couple meal examples (like breakfast) that would meet that criteria... I'm basing it on a 3,000 calorie diet so.. 63 grams of carbs, 38 grams protein, and 11 grams fat.
    Thanks

    each meal doesn't have to be in those exact percents... Why the hell would you put yourself through that?

    That's the thing, it isn't difficult. Don't over think it so much. Reach your calorie goal by having a good serving of carbs, protein and fat in each meal.

    A cup of oats with some eggs.. a cup of rice with some chicken and veges .. a pb&j with some fruit.

    I wouldn't worry about % at all as long as most of your meals are well rounded, and you're getting enough protein (which is really quite easy)

    Dont worry about that just law your meals out basically the same. Focus mainly on protein and carbs, your fats will come with those foods.

    U shouldn't expect other members to spoon feed every little detail to u, because they generally won't.

    Get a free account at www.fitday.com and do it urself. That will give u all the macro splits automatically when u enter ur foods.
    Best Regards,

    Bill Phillips' program Body for Life shoots for a 40/40/20 split and give the guideline that you should shoot for protein to look like the palm of your hand (minus the fingers) and the carbs should be about the size of your closed fist. So, if you had chicken and brown rice as a meal, the amount of chicken would be your palm (about the size of a breast, huh?) and the rice on your plate would be about the size of your closed fist.

    Those are often pretty close to what you need to make it simple without measuring and counting calories. Not always perfect, but it is pretty close.
