    today is my first day trying to follow the T-dawg diet and I'm having a lot of trouble balancing my carb, calorie, and protein intake. According to the diet, I should be taking in 100 g of carbs, 2880 calories, and 288 g of protein per day, but I'm only 2/3rds of the way through the day and I've eaten 94 g of carbs, 1050 calories, and 92 g of protein. Is there any way to up my calorie and protein intake in the future without taking in a lot of carbs? or can anyone recommend a recipe website for some lower carb/ higher calorie&protein meals?

    btw, if you're interested in what I have eaten, I had 3 yogurts (where most of my carbs came from), a can of tuna, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 gatorade and 2 scoops of protien powder (mixed it with water because we are out of milk, almost threw up)

    Dont eat yogurt. Get your carbs from veggies, oatmeal, and then in your pre and post workout nutrition. As far as low carb, high protein foods.......steak, chicken, eggs are all you really need

    Have you read that actual diet article?...it explains everything :dunno:

    It even gives a sample diet for a day which is pretty simple outline to what you should eat.

    I've actually pretty much tried this diet myself where the only form of carbs I got were pre and post workout.

    I work out in the morning so I would have oatmeal and whey protein at breakfest and then a PWO shake with dextrose after. For the rest of the day I eat high protein low carbs foods except for veggies...I felt fine :dunno:
