    Fat is way too low, aim for more like 65g. It's not healthy to keep it that low for anything more than a short burst. No need to have that much protein unless you particularly like protein foods.

    Perhaps replace some whey and egg whites with whole egg. Or replace chicken breast with leg. Or replace 0% yogurt with one containing a moderate amount of fat.

    BTW - the 'logs' section is not the ideal location to post questions. It's for logs...!

    I'm curious how much you weigh. 285g of protein seems like a lot of protein!

    Common guidelines for protein consumption are around 0.6 to 1g per pound of body weight.

    So if your weight is 150lbs:

    150 x 0.8g = 120g of protein per day.


    Do what works for you though! :-) good luck

    definitely up that fat though! It helps with testosterone and balancing hormones.
