The first place you wanna begin when setting out your macros nutrients is PROTEIN.
Protein is non-negotiable IMO, if you wanna be as Lean, Strong and Healthy as possible.
Set out to get 1g per lbs of bodyweight
Some will say this is the higher end of the protein scale, which it is close to BUT, IMO it's better to shoot high and fall short than shoot low and fall short... The decision is ultimately yours??
Easy maths -- the 200lb man gets at least 200g !! The 150lb woman gets 150g. How difficult is that ??
Protein is 4 calories per gram, so when x that by the amount you 're gonna have its gonna take a chunk of calories from your daily allowance...
Eg. 200g Protein x 4 calories = 800 calories
You should be feeling the overwhelm of trying to track food fade away right now...
Once that chunk of calories is taken away from your daily allowance you've got a certain amount left for Carbs and Fats.
I'll show you what to do with them soon, get your protein in check first and keep it there consistently.
You don't have to spend your life tracking food that ain't the message here... the message is, you should try and track for a small period of time to assist you in becoming more mindful of the amount of food you're body needs on a daily basis to help you achieve your body composition goals.
Say what you will on the matter, but I've yet to see proper planning and some mild tracking make anyone's body composition situation worse...
until next time!
