Just Started being vegan, and i've devised this meal plan to eat every day

I'm 6'1" 215 pounds and ~17/18% fat so I want to get more lean

do you see any gaps with the nutrition? or have any suggestions? do the macronutrient ratios look good? Is 2026 calories too little? (I just started med school so I'm sitting in class and studying a lot, and i only lft 3 days and week...)

I was thinking of switching supper and lunch? and also adding some pumpkin seeds somewhere

2026 calorie plan
24% Protein - 129g
57% Carbs - 311g
19% Fat - 47g


Breakfast
P(50) C(22) F(13) - Cals 364
Smoothie:
- 2 scoop sun warrior protein
- 2 tbsp (20g) hemp seed
- 1 tsp coffee
- 340g of spinach

Lunch
P(39) C (79) F(13) - cals 537
gala apple
Smoothie:
- Almonds (17g)
- 1/8 tsp Cinamon, nutmeg, ginger
- 1 banana medium (118g/7”)
- strawberries (230g)
- 1tsp coffee
- 2 scoops sun warrior protein

Supper
P(39) C(162) F(21) Cals 945
Quinoa and Bean Chili (crock pot: Quinoa, beans, tomatoes, onion, g-pepper, jalepeno, honey, cumin garlic...)

Snack
(P1) C(48) F(0) cals 180
29 (144g) red grapes
gala apple

thanks! :D

looks good to me, i personally would eat more beans, chickpeas etc, just so i dont have to have as many smoothies, i don't think that would work as well on a cutting diet, so yeah, as long as you are at a calorie defecite, it should be fine, just track your weight every day, write it down, and see how the curve is going after a few weeks, and alter appropriately

more veggies! Maybe replace a few of the fruits.
