Hi, I wonder if anyone can help.
I aim to eat 1400kcals a day, and tend to work out 5/6 times a week. I don't eat my workout allowance, as I use that as my deficit, however I notice that no matter how I try, I tend to only eat around 1200kcals. For example today I had the following, and this is roughly what I tend to eat:
Breakfast- yogurt, oats and banana
Lunch- brown rice, turkey, tomato, courgettes, broccoli and corn.
Dinner- spinach, turkey, chickpeas and tomato.
Snack- apple and yogurt
Can anyone suggest a healthy snack that can bump up my kcals. Someone suggested peanut butter on a rice cake, but the thought of pb scares me as I thought it wasn't good for you.
What I don't want is for my body to go into starvation mode which will make things that much harder.
Any advice is much appreciated.
