Let me get the boring details out of the way before my question:
31 female, 5'4, and a whopping 218.6 lbs per this mornings weigh in.
Now on to my question. Just how important is protein intake when trying to lose fat? I've been training 5 days a week (1 hour lift and about 20 minutes of cardio) for the past 3 months but only managed to drop about 8 lbs. My macros are usually on point, except for my protein intake; it's normally a bit low. Could this be why I'm not seeing better/quicker results?
Thanks for any help/advice you can give!
