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.

How's that?

#48828 - mendelevium (09/10/2016) [-]
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.

150g protein
200g carbs
50 fat

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.
User avatar
#48840 - FuckYouFatBen (09/11/2016) [-]
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 really 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.

#48456 - mendelevium (09/02/2016) [-]
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 .

Amen, but the PC stuff is really making annoying people of all races re-appear in huge nummbers.

Exept for the asians, they seem to be preparing for something big....

The Asians are just being Asian. That is working hard despite the hard times surrounding them.

In some ways it's good, others bad. They never complain. They don't March. When shit get real, they get guns and jump on the rooftops.

Monty's death made me relapse into depression when it happened.

Strange how it takes a certain type of celebrity to pierce different people's heart

I think what was really sad for me was knowing that a lot of his stuff, which I grew up loving, would just be there now.

No more dead fantasy for example. Everything just seemed to stop.

I was so sad when I heard about Monty. But the Rooster Teeth family is doing his RWBY series justice, and I don't think they'll want to let him down. He left behind a legacy and a loving cast and crew.

Hats off to you Monty. You're still missed.

Deadass. I almost cried when I saw the opening to the third season. That was a fucking tribute like non other.

I still remember finding out about him dying.

You should watch young Frankenstein. It was my first experience with Gene Wilder. The man is a national treasure, and that movie was a piece of comedy art.

Blazing Saddles is better, and it also features Gene Wilder as one of the leads.
