    Modern hero meal plan dumb question...

    Looking at the modern hero meal plan - https://darebee.com/mealplans/modern-hero.html

    it says:
    Note: Some items are present in both PROTEIN and CARBS columns because they are equally high in protein and carbohydrates. Add up both PROTEIN and CARBS amounts when you are using the same item from the two columns.
    for beans, that’s 1/2 cup of carbs and 1 cup protein. Does that mean I’m allowed a cup and a half? or only half a cup and then I need a half serving of some other protein?

      I think yes,i use it like that beans are high in carbs and protein but you have to look at your plate then half of plate is beans beacuse a quarter of plate is carbs, quarter protein but beacuse beans are both protein and carbs then you have half a plate beans and rest are vegetebles,fruti ,mushrooms berries etc i hope it helps

        Dissenting voice here....

        The way I read it is that one cup of beans/chickpeas etc. is this: One cup of beans is one portion of protein AND 2 portions of carbs.

        Damer neilarey any thoughts?

          The way I’ve always understood it is that you pick one item from each column and as many fruits/veg/berries as you can take.

          So you can pick the beans portion from protein, then add the beans portion from carbs, then your fat and drink, plus the infinite items.

          Then Bob’s your uncle you have your meal.
