New Plans

Hey gang,

I have a few things on my mind regarding fat loss. But before I get to them, let's discuss breakfast.

Pumpkin Oats

In the pot:

  • 30 grams oats (that's a little less than half a cup. Half a cup is the equivalent to 40 grams in theory, but I weigh the oats, just to be sure I'm not getting more than I need)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree 
  • 2 egg whites
  • cinnamon 
  • nutmeg
  • cloves
  • 1 T natural PB
  • 1 T 1% cottage cheese 

And coffee.

I had enough coffee to make half the amount I normally do. SUCCESS! 

The Few Things on my Mind

Carbs, Fats, and Protein

I've heard so many different things about carbs and fat loss. Some people forbid carbs in their diets, other eat them limitlessly. So I've decided the only way to see if less carbs are effective for fat loss is to try it out myself! 

Right now I eat about 55% carbs, 20% protein, and 25% fat. 

I'm thinking of switching to this combination - 30% carbs, 50% protein, and 20% fat

I'm not exactly sure if it's possible to do this as a vegetarian, without eating half a tub of protein powder a day. But I'm gonna give it a go!

    So im thinking of trying out some pumpkin oats tomorrow. Do you just mix it all up and stick it in the microwave? If so how long? Thanks! As for your ratios, I say go for more protein!
