I'm eating more calories than usual (trying to loose weight but now focusing on also maintaining muscle too) but idk i think its better for me.
can i get peoples opinions?

Breakfast: protein shake (can't stomach food in the morning but i like drinks so its a good way to get protein in)
Snack: Carrots and hot sauce
Lunch: teriyaki salmon filet, cauliflower rice, kimchi, broccoli, spinach, edamame, radish and onion.
Snack: 2 heck sausages
Dinner (made by parents):
-2 mini tortillas
-pan-fried chicken and spices
-black/kidney bean and tomato 'mix'
-carrot and red cabbage
-avocado
-sour cream/mayo garlic sauce (i have just a little bit of this)

everything is homemade (sauces etc) and unprocessed apart from the sausages.
most days breakfast is the time but sometimes ill have a protein yoghurt instead, lunch is usually similar (chicken, cod, salmon, egg, shrimp or tuna that usually total to 100-200cals, some mix of veggies like salad or steamed veg and sometimes ill have a sweet potato but not often because i cba), dinner varies but its usually chicken, veg and sometimes potato or noodles (my parents have rice with dinner but i cant stand rice which is very un asian of me). my snacks used to be fruit and nuts but id overeat the nuts/snack stuff so I'm starting to pre plan snacks that are higher in protein too .

i can't accurately track dinner so i usually assume it adds to 800-900cals, today roughly adds up to 1650 (weekend i had like 1700,1900 by accident) and most days its 1500-1650

I'm no expert but sound good to me, providing you are not losing weight on that amount of calories.

Remember to add some fiber in there, as the current meal plan might cause indigestion, so maybe more fruit for snacks, as they have natural sugar and low calories. Otherwise yeah that sounds perfectly balanced just remember to exercise too

The only thing that matters when trying to lose weight are calories, whether what’s your eating is classed as “healthy” it doesn’t matter, just eat a balanced diet in a calorie deficit and you will progressively lose weight, you physically cannot lose weight and gain muscle at the same time but to maintain muscle or to avoid massive muscle loss just keep your protein intake high and keep doing resistance training where possible

I completely understand where your coming from, calorie counting can lead to a really unhealthy mindset and relationship with food, don’t restrict yourself too much though in terms on nutrition, 1 day of bad eating isn’t going to ruin your progress and there’s plenty of ways to keep progressing with weight loss aslong as your happy and balanced don’t worry, also don’t worry to much about weight on the scale, if you feel good and look different that’s what matters most it’s very easy for your body to change massively but to have lost no weight on the scale

Why do you need snacks when you are having 2 main meals? They sound like habit rather than nutrition.

i don’t always have snacks, only when i’m rlly hungry. i’m just trying to pre plan them to avoid mindless grazing so when i do want a snack i can have something that will fill me up and give me good nutrients
