    Hi question on macros for meal one.
    I ran out of turkey sausage for egg cups so I sub for Turkey bacon. I know I’m off on fats..but my question is on carbs.
    40 grams of dry oatmeal and 1 oz of raisins total carbs 51. Can this be right?

    That looks right to me, yes.

    1/2 c oatmeal = about 27g carbs
    1 oz. seedless raisins = about 22g carbs

    Totals = 49g carbs + trace amounts of carbs in spinach

    The part I’m not understanding is the macros per meal (not the post meal). 1st meal opt. 1 – this meal should have 51? And the rest should have 34?

    I want to make sure I’m eating what the plan is set for my height and make any adjustments.

    I would focus on making sure your totals for the whole day are where they should be, so at the end of the day, you should have around:

    1,520 calories
    120g protein
    170g carbs
    40g fat

    As long as you are within about 5-10g of your target goal macros at the end of the day, you are on target! 🙂

    I found that Meal 1, Plan 1 was over too so I reduced the oatmeal to 30g and the raisins to 1/2 oz to fit more in line with the Meal total listed. 🙂
