Confused about Acute Phase
So as I am getting very bored with what I've been eating and am now into week 2, I decided to take a look at the dinner recipes thread. Maybe I misunderstood my instructions at the clinic, but I thought I could only eat what they had listed. I think I have that wrong. It says to eat AT LEAST 500 calories of protein a day. So if I make something for dinner (one of those recipes for example) and it comes out to 250 calories, does that count? Or should I ONLY be counting the calories that go towards the protein? I see some recipes with cheese and all of that and I guess I was just under the impression that I couldn't have those things. Would be a great help if someone could clarify. Thanks!
