I'm starting new rules of lifting for women next week and am trying to plan my meals to stay at the recommended macro splits: 40 carbs, 30 protein, 30 fats. I'm struggling a bit because when I enter foods into my fitness pal, I end up too high on fats or carbs. If you eat close to these macros and about 1700 cals, can you please share? Thinking ground meats and veggies for breakfasts (thanks wambam for suggesting this in the past!), food from oh she glows everyday for lunches (large quinoa salads etc), meats and veggies for supper?
I'm going to need more information to help you. Perhaps you can post what you are currently eating and I can make some helpful suggestions for how to change things to achieve the right macros. I can post what a 1700 cal day would look like for me, but you may hate those foods or have very valid reasons for not eating exactly like I do.
If you are over on fat, I would personally look at vegetables first. Are you cooking your vegetables in fat? Then steam at least some of them to decrease fat. Another way is to choose leaner protein, but I don't personally prefer that because I love beef.
If you are over on carbs, I would just eat less of what you're currently eating. Are you eating 1/2 cup of rice? Eat 1/3 cup of rice. I find that carbs are easier to just decrease rather than swapping for something else.
