How can we help you?

I usually eat higher protein, can I substitute some carbs for more protein?

The majority of meals from Lauren’s plans are approximately 30% protein. However, if you are used to a different macro split then it may take your body a week to get used to the change in macros. If you are used to a higher protein diet and are nervous about a higher carb approach, here are some options:

  1. When there is a carb heavy meal, half the carb content and increase the protein content.
  2. Eat the carb heavy meals around your workout so that way they will fuel you and be burnt off as energy relatively quickly.
  3. Add a scoop of OxyWhey to a shake in the morning/post-workout/dessert and decrease the fruit content.

The way you pick the meals could change the macro split to 40% protein, 30% carb and 30% fat. Please let us know if you have any other questions, email us at
