Morning Smoothie

Hello, I am a 6’0, 195 pound male, and I wanted to do a fruit and vegetable smoothie (1/2 avocado, 1 cup rice milk, 1 cup frozen cherries, 1 cup kale or spinach), and eat three hard boiled egg whites, and 1/4 cup almonds for my morning meal. I would eat this after my 30 to 60 minute workout. Does this meal sound balanced? Is the fat calories too high? Thank you.

Answer:

Whilst the sources of fat in your breakfast are good fats, half an avocado and a 1/4 cup of almonds will provide around 50% of your daily fat RDA. Depending on your lunch and dinner, along with any other snacks, you may find you exceed your daily fat recommended allowance. As you profile listed you are looking to lose fat, so I would suggest reviewing how your other meals and snacks compare during the day and reduce accordingly
