    Tips on improving diet?

    Daily Macros:

    640g of carbohydrates

    250g of protein

    34g of fat

    Total Calories: 4,200. (Edited -- corrected error)

    It's working, but the carbs seem a little high. It's also sort of high maintenance. I guess that's to be expected?

    Sticky says not to list foods but I already gave macros.

    The foods are 4 dry cups of jasmine rice, 2.5lbs of chicken breasts, a fruit smoothy, some vegetables and algal and fish oil supplements.

    Going on the labels on the package, the rice is 180 calories per 1/4 cup dry, so 4 cups is 2,880 calories.

    The chicken is 120 calories per 4oz. So that's 1,440 calories for 12 servings of 4oz for 2.5lbs total. All my fat comes from the chicken (has 3g per 4oz's) so there's no additional calories. The other fats I take come from pills of fish oil and algal oil supplements for omega 3's.


    I find that I need low fat and low sugar diets to keep belly fat low. So I had to increase protein and carbs to the max to make up calories lost from eating little fat.

    I lose weight pretty quickly if I skip meals sometimes. For instance I might only get 2 cups of rice and 1lb of chicken breast and that's it and then I lose muscle pretty fast. I basically lose half my calories. I guess this is to be expected?

    And, you’re not eating enough fat.

    Hmm, so that adds up to 2,880 actually. Not sure how I got 2,720 before. That's still under 3,000 though. I don't see how it's almost 4,000?

    I can add in 6-8 oz of salmon into my diet for fats too. I have some pre sliced frozen servings that are fast to cook.
    640g of carbohydrates = 2560 Calories

    250g of protein = 1000 calories

    34g of fat = 306 calories

    2560+1000+306 = 3866 Calories, or, almost 4000

    Also chicken and rice all day every day? Kill me

    Yep, I made the mistake of counting only 2 cups of rice. 4 cups is 180 calories x 16 = 2,880.

    So in reality my diet is 4,200 calories per day. Sounds about right. Fixed the original post with an edit.

    Says right on the package of my rice than 1/4cup dry is 180 calories.

    I'm just reading the label. It's a Kirkland brand 25lb bag of jasmine rice from costco.

    I'm not making this up.

    You realize 1 cup pre cooked is different from 1 cup cooked... right?
