According to the Men's Health TAP plan for a guy that weighs 200lbs and is moderately active which is 40% that equals out to 3080 to maintain. Now I have decided to only cut 500 calories due to the workouts I have lined up Turbulence Training, Meltdown and Iron Manual. Which gives me 2580 which seems pretty high to me. Can I go to 2080? Anyways I did the ratio like TAP shows but I am confused it says to do 33/33/33 but when I do the 0.91/gram per a pound of body weight it equals to 182 grams of protein which seems low. Then I distribute the rest between carbs and fat which gave me 232 grams of carbs, which seems really high and 102 grams of fat. Is this right to lose weight? Instead of 33/33/33 can I do 40/30/30 or does it have to be 33/33/33? Is this the right number of calories 2580 seems kind of high but what do I know. Thanks.
My stats are 5'8-5'9 not sure.
20% body fat.
Goals: Lose weight and body fat.
Activity level: Workout 4 days a week. I am moderately active. I know there are other diets like the t-dawg diet but the carbs are way to low for me and way to much protein. I'm happy with the TAP diet.
