Prob take in 1600 calories a day. The past week I kept up with lean proteins such as salmon, halibut, chicken breast, and lean turkey. I switched to whole grain bread. I'm also attempting to eliminate snacking.
Thats a good start. Really though, shoot for 1700 calories a day, therefore you can put more protein/calories/carbs etc into each meal. That may sound like a lot, but if your looking to lose weight which 1600 calories a day would do, you really want to take in a little more. The main concept of burning fat is to keep your metabolism running so you don't store excess sugars that turn into fat cells. I'm not sure what your routine is like, try the 5 or 6 smaller meals per day, if you haven't already, just to see if you can live like that. To eliminate snacking, just look for richer foods with more fiber, that will make you feel more "filled up," as a matter of fact, go to your local drug store and you can buy fiber supplements. Just a little powder you put into water, and usually comes out tasting like green tea, so its not like a thick protein shake or anything, and its very low in calories anyways. Oh and one last thing, avoid high fructose corn syrup, HFCS is mostly found in soda's, and other sugar abundant drinks, so if your going to drink soda, atleast drink diet since they will cut that ingredient out.
Hope it helps, and let us know how its going.
