Also, Healthy cholesterol/BP levels and I'm 24 and active (when I am not sitting at my desk at work). Please HELP!
Everyone is different but if you are getting the minimum protein and carbs your body needs I wouldn't worry unless you are unable to lose any weight.

I have been a vegetarian pretty much my whole life. I live a low carb lifestyle, get plenty of protein, eat higher fat while keeping my cals below 1200 a day.

I am allergic to nuts and to iodine so I only eat liquid egg whites which are very high in protein but fat free. I actually needed more fat since I eat low carb so I would add olive oil to everything!

What are your macro's?
