I was wondering about this because it looks like in general the protein is supposed to equate to 150 calories each meal- that means that depending on which protein you have (sea bass, crab, chicken breast, certain grass fed beef) you could have more or less than 100 grams to equal the 150 calories. Does anyone know anything about this? I was going have my meat based on this calorie amount, which would mean that I'll be eating more than 100 grams of some meats, but want to make sure this is correct first- I don't want to mess anything up!
From what I've been reading the basic protocol is like this:
1 fruit- 60 calories
1 veggie/salad- 40 calories
1 protein- 150 calories
= 250 calories per meal
x 2x a day = 500 calories.
Is this right?
Thanks so much. Today was my very first VLCD! Can't wait to get on scale tomorrow!
