After reading the 8 ah-ha moments article I realized that my nutrition sucks and that I'm not making the amount of progress I should be because of it. I decided to improve my nutrition but I just need a little help.
I figured out the amount of calories I should be eating through one of the formulas in the website so I'm starting out with 3173 calories(I'm 17 and weigh 158 pounds) and tweaking it throughout the first couple of weeks.
I followed this article http://www.T-Nation.com/article/bodybuilding/nutrition_for_newbies_part_1&cr= and got that I should be eating 427g of carbs(1707 calories), 200g protein(800 calories), and 74g of fat(666 calories). Now my problem is that I really don't have much experience with this so I don't know if it's right or not.
My question for you guys is does this food intake look like it would be right for a 17 year old who weighs 158 pounds and wants to gain muscle? I just don't want to start out my good eating habits only to find that I did something wrong. Any input is appreciated.
