What is the easiest way to measure macro-nutrients in foods that are not labeled on the container? I want to start the T-DAWG diet, but it seems that I’ll have to go buy a scale to measure weight of food (after it’s been cooked for most protien sources). The carbs should not be a problem if I keep to suggested carbs on the list all I’ll need is a measuring cup or scoop. If there is no other way besides buying a scale and figuring out how many grams of fat and protien ther are per 1 once serving for a certain food, then so be it. I’m just hoping there is a quicker or easier way.
Also if I'm supposed to get 1.5 grams of protien per pound of body weight thats gonna come to 402 grams of protien a day! For the love of all thats holy! I'm gonna have to fit in some dialysis a couple times a week. At 268 pounds (BF @ about 20%)my caloric intake will be 3520 a day. Can this be correct? I hate to question the wisdom of T-nation, but Jeebus that sounds kinda high. Any input will be greatly appreciated..
