I’m following Day 1 of the 8 week plan given in the BSD recipe book and using MyFitnessPal to track my food. I’ve followed the recipe for Smoked Fish Pate exactly as written but according to MyFitnessPal my meal was 440 calories not 270 and I’ve yet to prepare my Thai Red Curry with cauliflower rice which should be 300 calories.. I had the Perfect Scrambled Eggs for breakfast which was on target at 209 calories. I only have 136 calories left out of the 780 the plan says the day should add up to. Thankfully carbs are at 10g so far today.
My question is, should I not worry too much about the calories and focus on the carbs? Or make the recipes as given and eat half a portion if the calories add up to more than the recipe states?
Many thanks for your advice!
