Hello! I actually joined a long time ago but can't remember my username!
I am starting the Body RX diet by Dr. Scott Connelly and have a pretty good grasp of things (I've also done BFL, so...), but I have a few questions, perhaps someone can help?
I am 180 lbs, so my daily protein is 180g (six 30g/4.5oz servings of protein per day). I am taking his advice and drinking two met-rx protein shakes per day (each with 38g protein). Now, he doesn't say anywhere in the book about treating the protein drinks any differently in terms of counting protein grams, but I am worried that if I drink two protein drinks and eat four other meals I will gain (as in a person trying to gain adding
protein drinks to their diet); so my question is should I, say, deduct the 76 protein drink grams (because the 38g is a little more than the 30g I should be having at each meal) from my daily 180g and then divide that into the 4 remaining meals? Or just keep my grams the same with the protein drinks simply replacing two meals....since he doesn't mention it. (However, he does mention things like if you have a bigger steak at one meal, have a smaller piece of some kind of protein at another, so....)
*sigh*....I know I am "thinking" too much, but I don't want to overdue it and gain
OH!...Also, one more thing: Fat still confuses me a bit. He just says don't add too much. How much is "too much"?
Thanks so much and I hope I wasn't dreadfully confusing!
