Hi, first post on here!
Just a quick question; in John Romaniellos article https://www.T-Nation.com/workouts/five-principles-of-radical-fat-loss he mentioned how to split protein, carbs and fat.
Following his calorie guide too it works out I’d need 2800 calories following this fat loss plan.
The protein and carbs seem reasonable to me but the fat comes out as around 120-140g.
This seems extremely high to me and if so, I take it you just consume tons of nuts and oils? Haha
What’s everyone else’s thoughts on this?
This response might come across as a little snippy, but I don’t mean for it to be so. Your post shows that you POSSIBLY need more education on nutrition in general. Otherwise you’d see that this approach is pretty standard.
At that fat intake, it would be a 30-something percent fat diet, which is a moderate amount of fat. Some fat loss diets (and lifestyle and bulking diets) have higher.
120 to 140 grams of fat is not a ton of oil considering how easy it is to consume that much. I’ve already consumed 40 or so grams of fat from breakfast alone.
Again, you need a bit more education on the topic.
