Hello again people I would like the gain the opinions of a few knowlegable people on how to adjust cutting macros for a man of medium build but very high calorie needs due to an active job. 9-10 hors a day actively on feet.
OK… I am 5’11" and about 184
I weigh myself daily and calculate a 7 previous day average every morning. I am currently losing just over one pound per week on my cutting diet. I carb cycle on 4400 four days a week following my workouts. I practice IF and train 16 hour fasted. On the three days that precede my workouts I hit 4900 so I average just over 4600 daily. The extra 500 I get on my high days is from purely carbs as I feel this works for my body and gives me the energy I need for my workouts.
at present I would need nearly 5100 to maintain my weight and I am FAR from big!
Now… let my for simplicity’s sake we deal with purely the low day’s 4400 to derive macros. What do you guys suggest?
I know about the whole 1-1.5g protein thing and also the 30% of your calories as fats deal but this leaves a hell of a lot of carbs to eat. Shall I use say 40p:40c:20f ratios but if I do that’s a ridiculous amount of protein and protein is expensive!
Also using these ratios seems very low for fats (especially on the high days when I add in 500calories extra of carbs) and fats are important for hormone health no?
Thoughts and ideas?
