So, Im fairly new to really tracking my calories. I went a little overboard on a cut and now Im slowly upping my calories until I get to a very lean bulk. Right now Im at about 2300 cals/day...not seeing any gain, so Im upping about 100 cals a week until I hit my sweet spot.
Anyway, I always eat pretty light for breakfast, lunch varies in size, and a pretty big dinner (workout right before dinner time). But it always seems like I have room for snack foods even while hitting my macros.
For example, for some reason my lunch and dinner were smaller than usual today - Simply because I was in a rush and threw some stuff together. I looked at my cals and had enough room for (way too much) candy left over from trick-or-treaters, some pretzels and a big chocolate chip cookie (all together, it was probably like 600 cals of snack food).
I normally cant fit THAT much in, but it seems like I always have room for a decent amount of sweets/snacks, etc. Just makes me wonder since it seems like everyone on here complains about trying to fit a cookie into their diet, etc. Someone tell me Im not crazy
