My calorie intake is limited to about 1189, but after doing the math on my foods, there is barely any room for things like good fats and such. Can I take like 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or have nuts have my calorie limit or will that throw me off?
20 pounds is not really that much to lose. Personally I would never go below 2,000 cals a day. Especially with weight training also.
Good fats can be added with natural peanut butter, almonds, and cooking your eggs in olive oil. Things like that.
