Coach Thibs has confused me in his Nutrition and Maximal fat loss article. He states:
"if one energy source is disproportionately high compared to the other ones, the body will adapt to use this fuel source are their main one.
So if your protein intake is way higher than the other nutrients, your body will become good at using protein for fuel. Since protein is an inefficient fuel source, the body will be quick to breakdown muscle tissue to produce the enery required: you’ll be burning down the walls to heat the house!"
So let’s im eating roughly 47 % protein, 43% fat, and 10 % carbs (from veggies) (i’m a former fat boy so I need to limit carbs.) Would the combination of fat and carbs be my primary fuel source or would it be protein? Thanks.
