Yes, lifting burns 17 calories.

Engrish?


I’ll try to provide you with a real reply since you are most likely to just get flamed for your terrible grammar. A gram of fat has 9 calories, gram of protein has 4 calories, and gram of carb has 4 calories.

You need to learn the nutrient breakdown of the foods you eat, then apply that to the “Eat This Many Grams.” You should be able to look on the back or side of the bag/box/can and find out how it breaks down nutritionally. You can go online to something like fitday.com and type in the foods you’re looking to eat and find out how they are they breakdown by carbs, fats, and protein. You can also just google it if you can’t find it anywhere else by typing in the food you want and by adding “Nutritional Information.”

I have absolutely no idea how to tell you what you need to eat because I have no stats to work with but if you are indeed fat and have muscle mass I don’t think I’d use that approach. I’d try something like 300g protein 50g carbs and 150g of fats and then see how you progress, lowering calories from there.

Try reading through this post for all sorts of basic information pertaining to training and nutrition.

Well, I’m British, and I too was unaware of the above. If I/he do/es the maths, 300Gms of Protein equals 1200Kcals, so assuming a average daily intake of only 2000, clearly it’s vital to keep tight control of the non-Proteins we eat. It’s good to get back to basics, you sometimes spot something you’ve missed all this time, and I had. I appreciate your post.

To the poster who says we spawned the language - we did, and we ought to be held to a higher standard. Your surprise is not an uncommon reaction amongst Americans encountering inarticulate Brits for the first time.

However, I’d ask only that you bear this in mind; we are not all bards gifted with sublime penmanship, no more than you are all Hilfiger-wearing preppies loafing around on yachts in sunny marinas. We, like you, also have our caravan-dwellers, and as you saw above, they sometimes have access to electricity.
