According to my calorie counter thingy I consumed 1710 today. Edit: Also I heard that consuming protein can cause a deficit in calcium. Is this true? Also the protein I take gives me 20% DV of the protein I need. So is this a way to fix this problem? Or should I be takinga calcium supplement? Edit again:

You can do p90x and lift weights and do whatever you want but if you're not tracking your diet, you're setting yourself up for failure.
Sorry, I didnt see your post. I logged all my stuff I am still trying to figure out how to let people see what I did though haha. While I cant figure it out heres what they are: Calories 1710 Carbs 193 Fat 27 Protein 155 According to my tracker I am way over in protein. Is this a big deal. And yea its amazin but sucks to be italian at the same time haha. As for p90x people were posting that but I might consider it again during school but not 100% sure. This is so I can have a constant partner for it again. As for the setting up for failure. When I was a junior in HS I lost about 40 lbs. Gained it all back plus more
(im a junior in college now)
