I'm just starting and I think I understand the portion size and the balance of carbs and protein. Below is a couple questions and sample meals. Please let me know if meals look okay.
Thanks in advance.
They look great!! I wish I was this organized, I'm very reliant on easy eats, protein bars, soup, etc. Good for you for doing so well with your planning!
I'm thinking there's way too much bread. There's just no way to make a Subway sandwich BFL approved, when you take a look at their nutritional value and remember that although Bill Phillips approved whole grain bread, that he said he was hesistant. That would not then make for 3x in a day. It's more a when you're stuck or 2x a week thing. Can you have chicken and then an apple? There's obviously many combinations of things. I would suggest seriously cutting the bread and grain.
I am starting an official challenge December 10th and have done bfl in the past and saw amazing results. BUT looking back, I do think I could have even seen more drastic results if I had cut the wheat, bread, grains, not cut carbs, but just cut out those foods. What would you suggest for the carb portion?
Does your subway do wraps? They are smaller, but still packed with veges
Subs are my back up plan, by when I do I ask them to cut the bread and ask for twice the turkey meat. That may be too much protein for you, but I shoot for 40g of protein. Then I only use half the bread.

If a sub becomes necessary, I too ask for double the meat, but that doesn't solve the carb protein. A 6 in Subway sub is too much carb for anyone, even a large male.
I would suggest quinoa, brown rice and steel cut oats if we're talking grain. Usually I do more fruit and things of that nature. You can do a salad with a chicken breast on top and then eat an apple as the carb portion.
