Hello and happy Friday everyone,
I generally approach my nutritional needs with a loose policy of “don’t keep junk food around the house, try to cook healthy and make good choices. And quinoa. Lots of quinoa.”
However, I’d like to start monitoring my intake more closely, and am entirely uncertain what basic numbers/ranges I should be shooting for WRT calories, grams of protein, carbs, etc.
- 27 year old female
- 5’8, 145 lbs
- Moderately active (military, working out 4-5 times per week, mixture of lifting, cardio, and HIIT)
- Pretty active metabolism
-Get stronger (lift heavier things up and put them down, increase pull-up reps) and more toned/leaner - and run fast enough to max the score on my PT test. If that means losing a few pounds, ok sure, but I’m really more interested in what the mirror tells me than what the scale says.
If any of you highly educated folks have any advice on the basic nutritional ranges I should stay within, I’d appreciate it. I realize it’s probably fairly variable per person, but figured it’s worth a shot to ask.
