Hello to anyone and everyone who reads this,

I am a beginner to dieting and would like some advice.

I want to be eating 3100 calories per day. I calculated my macros to be 160g of protein, 52.5g of fat, and as many carbs as I see fit.

What I am struggling with is what to eat in order to satisfy these numbers, it seems so daunting to figure all of this out and to a beginner like myself it has been quite a challenge.

Does anyone have any high protein meals they can recommend to me while keeping the fat to a minimum?

Thank you!

It's hard to tell without knowing your weight. The BUS website recommends me (at 377 pounds, female) to eat 2100_2300 a day. I prefer to lose a little faster so I'm eating 1500-1700. Remember fat is NOT the demon, and carbs are, so "as many carbs as I see fit" is probably the wrong way round. I cook with lean minced meat, chicken minus skin, things like chilli can be stuffed full of sliced veggies like leeks carrots mushrooms th at you can skip or cut down the rice and not miss it. Good luck.

Carbs and fats are interchangeable. I'd also recommend more carbs than fat but really, the macro you want to pay attention to is protein. Just get some Greek yogurt, lean meats, protein shakes, etc. So 3100 calories and 160g of protein is all you need to worry about. The other two macros will most likely fall in a healthy range unless you're actively avoiding them.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

If calories are on point there is nothing wrong with carbs, Erastes. Not sure what you mean.
