So I sat down the other day and decided to work out my nutritional requirements. I used Thibs "nutrition for newbies" to get these figurse and they just look REALLY whacked out...
I weight 244lbs so at 1.5g protien per pound of body weight thats 366g protien a day. Now this might not sound alot to you guys but when you consider that my daily calorie allowance is 3035 thats HALF my calories gone. Then I used the 50/50 fat/carbs ratio. 87g fat and 196g carbs.
What loses me is that I was lead to understand that your body will switch over to using the most abundant macronutriant for it's primary fuel source, which in this case is PROTIEN! That can't be good. So do I switch to using the 90/10 ratio of fat/carbs OR do I take my LEAN body mass (188lbs) and use that to get my protien intake? Or both?
Have I just done something wrong? any ideas guys?
