Breakfast- 2 egg omelette cooked in butter with spinach and mushrooms.
Snack- celery with full fat cream cheese
Lunch- prawn salad with lettuce spinach red onion 1/2 avocado asparagus and drizzled with olive oil.
Snack- almonds
Dinner- Salmon with spinach broccoli cauliflower with butter.
This comes in at 90g fat, 17g carbs and 73g protein with a macro split 69F 25P 6C.
Do I look to be on the right track here?

That looks along the right lines. Where are you getting the macro details from? It will depend on the actual quantity of your veg, of course.

MelanieCheeks I entered it into MFP :) I entered the veg quantities in grams so will make sure I weigh everything out correctly when I make the meals

Good plan. You can see from MFP where the big carb-hitters are - just make sure the items do have all the elements listed, sometimes the database only gives the calories.

eek here we go! I've been gluten/sugar free for a while now but have been eating a lot of fruits/veg. Think the hardest for me will be giving up my lentils and chickpeas etc! But I have 25lbs left to lose that just will not budge so this is sort of a last resort thing

Hi HeyJules, come and join in with the Low Carb Bootcamp

Lots of support regarding menus etc and a weekly weigh in if you want. you don;t have to put in your actual weight if you don't want to though!

Thanks LackaDaisycal I just posted on there :) I just can't seem to lose the last 20lbs and am fairly sure I have some sort of hormone imbalance as I fit all the boxes!! I'm going to the docs tomorrow and hopefully will get referred to an endocrinologist because with the amount of exercise I do and how healthy my diet is I am sure something is not right. Although I'm not "low carb" yet I still eat around 100g max a day which is low compared to the standard diet. Very frustrating!
