    D:Lamb Steak + butter sauteed mushrooms and onion


    Dessert: 1/4 cup berries


    Cals:1239

    Fat: 80.5g (57%)

    I know im a bit low on calories, especially since I worked out today, and according to my HR monitor I burned about 800 calories. I want to loose weight, but I dont want to risk going too low and loosing muscle. But I am not really hungry at all! Should I force down an protein shake with some olive oil tonight? Or just call it a light day? Any comments on how i can improve my typical day?


    I think im going to goto the store and pick up some avacados and coconut to get some denser cal sources.


    Thanks for your help!

    I pretty much always follow up a workout with a protein shake. Usually I'm not hungry, but I know that I need to provide my body with the nutrients during that "critical window" that is so important to reaping the benefits from an intense workout. Also, I usually take flax oil with my shake. As for improving on overall caloric intake, pack some snacks for work/school. Almonds and any type of berry make one of the best and easiest foods to keep on you.

    Maybe add a salad dressing made of virgin olive oil? Always a good calorie addition.
