    I typically eat about 40 percent carbs, 40 Percent protein and 20 percent fat

    When m in deficit I usually eat 30/50/20

    I do have items I substitute in also.
    Meats, usually in my dinners
    Steak, Burgers, Tuna, salmon

    Zero percent Fage yogurt with fresh blueberries or strawberries honey on top.

    Avocados when I want to add fats

    Toppings and Dressing
    Sugar free bbq sauce
    Bolt house makes yogurt based Ranch, Honey Mustard,

    For me I had to make it simple. I have been on this for three years. It finally became a habit. No it is easy to eat this way. Some call it boring but for me it?s a life style. Not a diet.

    I will add more stuff and try to give more details.
    Suggestions, criticism, and questions are all welcome.
    I hope this helps someone.
    I am not a chef, nutritionist,Dr or anything special. Just a normal guy trying to eat better and live healthier.

    I have streamlined my eating style and made it simple.
    For me that has made it successful and easier to maintain. I know others that are constantly planning, finding recipes or mixing things up all the time. It seems that burns a lot of folks out and they give up.
    It doesn?t always work for me every day. Example is today I ended up 800 calories short of 3000. Other days I struggle to keep it on track. I use under armor my fitness pal to help me track. I eat a lot of the same thing so I don?t track every day cause I just copy the day before.
    I also try for a gallon of water every day and 2 gallons in the summer.

    Is the 1153g of protien for your meals spread 3 times a day a typo?

    Look like a typo
    153 grams protein over three meals
    Try to get 40-50 at a time.
    Not always exact

    Not sure what happened to my original post or another one I posted here. I think a moderator has to approve them. I am sure they are busy and just haven?t got to them yet.
