What if calorie budget is okey but your sugars and proteins are more then it should be??
That happens to me a lot. It's hard in the "supersize me" mentality. I think (I'm not an expert) it's best to lower the sugar intake and add more veggies and whole fruits. I know it's easier to grab something fast, but I think prioritizing healthy snacks/meals with planning can help. I know that for me chips are a weakness, but if I have none in the house, I'll eat applesauce or the like-something better. Don't rid your diet entirely of sugar (and definitely not protein! It's vital!), but try to eat it sparingly. The holidays are a test, I know! (I struggle, too.) But you'll feel better if you eat less sugar. Good luck!
It's okay if you're just getting started in this whole thing, don't worry about that so much. Start by just trying to keep your calories within your goal. You will start to naturally adjust to healthier ratios as you get a better idea of what foods work well and what doesn't.
If you've been doing this for over 3 months now, you may have to try to put some more effort into looking more carefully at the food before you eat it.
