It's been about a month. My calories usually end up between 1400-1800 again all from veggies, animal protein, good fats, little fruit. To make up for lack of protein and calories, i take about 15g BCAAs a day (usually 5g pre and post workout which I also use to replace solid meals at that time, and 5 more later in the day. The BCAAs are usually mixed with some creatine as I thought this combination would make up for the lack of calories.

I do mostly o'lifiting which if I'm not mistaken doesn't exhaust glycogen stores to the extent that other forms of exercise does. I really don't know how I would fit in more carbs since grains just don't sit well with me and I usually have only about 1 or 2 pieces of fruit a day. I just get full very quickly.
