I'm a newly turned vegan trying to lose weight. My macros are set at 45 carbs, 35 protein, and 20 fat. Every day I go way over on carbs and way under on protein (about 18g). I also heard fibre is important for weight loss so I'm wondering what the best foods are (high protein, high fibre, low fat), and if my macros are set wrong? I eat whole grains, beans, soy, tofu, quinoa, loads of veg every day. I supplement with EngevitA nutritional yeast flakes with b12, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and I use maca powder. I know all the veg is obviously carb, but my fat is still pretty high. I didn't really want to supplement protein as I'm useless at getting up in the morning and this is really the only time I'd get chance to do this I.e with a shake with pea protein etc.
Any ideas on my macro levels and food/ protein supplement suggestions? My diary is (should be) open to view.
Although I'm only currently walking for exercise I do plan to start adding weight training and running. I only ever seem to maintain weight as one day I'll be at or under my calories then the next I'll be way over, so weekly my levels always end up about the same grr, I find the more I exercise the more I eat. So much for vegan food helping you to lose weight haha!
