it’s my 2nd day on the diet and overall things have been going good.
Haven’t been crazy hungry other than approaching lunchtime.
Anyway, for my HSM (dinner) meals I feel like I have been eating a lot compared to my usual sized meals.
Yesterday, my Lifting day I had to consume 10 oz of chicken, a medium sweet potato and 12 asparagus spears just to get to 423 cals.
When I usually eat my meals I usually eat anywhere from 5-8 oz so to eat 10 oz of chicken was weird and I felt full before finishing.
Today I had 6 oz of chopped steak, red,yellow bell peppers and 1/4 cup of quinoa and hit about 560 cals. This seemed much more manageable to eat. but still more food than I would expect to eat on a diet or shred.
Does anything seem off, or do we truly eat this much for the HSM meals?
Also, I have been weighing my meats after they are cooked.
Thanks for your help and good luck to everyone.
