Recent Sample of Daily Calories
I was on the local CBS station, WLTX, to talk about counting calories earlier this morning. Take a look at a sample of daily calories, plus some information on counting calories I shared this morning with viewers:

I also have a couple of protein shakes a day (48g of protein per shake) — read more about weight meal replacement shakes. When combined with whole food, I get just over 200 grams of protein a day — an important part of any muscle building diet.
I still hover around 2,000 calories a day. It’s true to build muscle one must consume more calories than they burn, but I’m still concerned about gaining fat so I’m not consuming too many calories in excess at this point. I am doing less cardio and eating a lot more protein and for now I seem to be building muscles rather nicely, so I see no need to change what I’m doing.
As always, I’ll monitor my progress and adjust my calories as necessary.
