    Thanks for the post and for joining the forum.

    I think given your info here, I'd probably aim for 250/270/70 (Pro/Carb/Fat) with 35g fiber per day. You can eat whatever foods you like in order to hit these numbers, though we do recommend 6 servings of fruits and vegetables (total) per day minimum. I would spend some time playing around with MyFitnessPal plugging in different meal combinations that you would eat in order to make some sample meals for yourself. I don't think I would plan on eating only 3 food items per day. Rather, plan out a day of eating using the app and give yourself some options. This is something we do for our coaching clients, but you can do it for yourself as well

    Macro Intake

    Good afternoon,

    according to Dr Feigenbaum's To Be A Beast article's matrix on Fat Loss, I should be consuming 1.25 (g/LB) of Protein, 1 (g/LB) of Carbohydrates, and .25 (g/LB) of Fat. I currently weigh ~ 269.2 LBS and have a waist circumference of ~ 43.25 inches while staying a similar weight. Currently training 3 days a week and walking 30 minutes on non-training days, I have seen my waist circumference go down since my first measurement on 4/16/19 (46 inches), all this while doing a IIFYM style of nutrition consuming around 3k Calories a day. I plugged in my numbers to this matrix, and it is hard to wrap my head around it, not necessarily the grams of a certain Macro that I have to hit but more over how that transfers to food! I NEED ADVICE! The current regimen, which I spent all day formulating, is 3 Lbs of Skinless Chicken Breast ( ~302 grams of Protein, 35 grams of Fat), a measurement of 2 cups of uncooked Brown Rice ( ~ 270 grams of Carbs, 28 grams of Protein, 10.3 grams of Fat) and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to get me to my Fat Macro Intake. I don't even know if I can consume such volume of food, I am open to trying but I am looking for any advice on how to hit these parameters in the cheapest way possible!?? I think this will put me at around 11-13 USD a day to consume these calories. How can I hit my macros in accordance to the matrix in a fashion that will be cost effective!! Any tips or alterations to these Macro Intakes would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for your time Barbell Medicine Team!
