Fitness - muscle and...
You got 3
All of them important, all of them needed for a healthy good looking body.
Protein the most important for mass and building muscle, you should always try to get it through your diet but you can supplement through shakes. You want 1g of protein MINIMUM for every lb of bodyweight, 2 if you're trying to gain and you're bulking and add on 1g of protein of every lb you are away from your goal weight. Its got 4 cal for every gram.
Carbs are the feel good macro imo, take them to feel good and lift heavy ass shit, they pump your muscles up to give a fuller look, they give you fast energy, they taste good, mostly used in bulking but have 4 calories per gram so thats why alot of people cut them in diets. I usually go for 1-1.5g carbs for every 1g protein, IE 300g of protein you can have 450g of carbs, try not go over 2g for every 1g of protein though.
Fat is a bit tricky, some people (like myself) cut it out entirely, but its GREAT for reaching your cal minimum when bulking, it also makes you feel good if you eat the right kind, and lets be honest it tastes fucking amazing, but try to have as little as possible IMO. Some people are different, everyone counts different. Its got 9 cal for every gram.
To give you an example here's my bulking macro goal.
300g protein (1200cal)
450g carbs (1800cal)
0-50g fat (450cal)
So all in all I usually eat about 3000cal on the ideal day. Gives me a nice calorie surplus and I feel good and I gain muscle.
However counting macros is all completely different from person to person, this is just what I use. Some people have no carbs at all, some people have less then a gram of protein per lb, some people do no fat (like I do in cuts). But most bulks look about like mine, my protein is a bit high but I'm also on steroids so you could prob drop a bit on the protein and be good.
Sorry for the long wait but I finally did it.
So I weigh 187lbs (I know that's overweight. My goal is to be down to 179lbs so that I can match my BMI of 5'11). I want to consume 382g's of protein (2 for every pound plus the 8 pounds I'm away from my goal). So around 400g's of carbs (That one I had issues with). ANd keep it 0g-50g's a fat a day.
Well if you're 5'11 and 187lbs then eatins 3100 cal a day is not going to make you lose any weight.
If your goal is to LOSE weight, then I'd go.
In fact you could even cut it down even more with the protein.
The only reason I eat more than 300g protein is because I'm bulking, on steroids, train 2 hours a day 7 days a week, and am just getting out of being super lean.
If you are trying to cut down on weight you just need enough protein to maintain, so go for 150-200 if you can, but then you'd have to cut carbs accordingly.
I think my mistake is using the weight chart provided by Google. I have to figure out how much I have to weigh without body fat. Since I do want muscle and to make gains.
Okay I see what you mean. What if my goal is to mainly lose day but also gain more muscle? Not trying to be like Spartacus but perhaps lean with a nice tone and cut?
Weight* not day.
Okay, this is fucking helpful as fuck.
So before I do the calculations, does this have to match my gym activity? LIke I go to the gym everyday for about an hour or 2, does this increase or decrease my goal?
Don't worry about it unless you're doing 2 a days and cardio. Keep it simple and life is easier.
Fat is actually
important for testosterone levels and hormone balance in general, and late teen or adult males should probably eat no less than 60 grams a day. Now, you can get away with lower fat diets since you cycle during diets but that's not the case for many.
True dat, though thats 500 cal I could be having in my protein...
If you on that natty life hit 60g then. But thats alot of extra calories a week.
You really don't need that much protein. Your body can only use a certain amount, and your advice on eating more protein when bulking as opposed to cutting is not really a good approach. When you're cutting you actually need more protein than when you're bulking to try to minimize muscle loss. You only need 0.8-1.2 grams of protein per ibs of bodyweight, and you should really eat your fats. Your fats should not be lower than 20% at any time .
