I'm going back on the T-dawg diet for the second time in 12 months in april and I have a couple of questions I want to get right before I start.
1.)Your supposed to times your body weight by 15 to find out how many kcals a day to eat.In my case this=3450kcals a day i.e I weigh 230lbsx15=3450.Now my maintance kcals a day are around 4000 so this would seem about right.However it says to also drop 500kcals after the first week which would put me down to about 3000kcal's a day, 1000 down from maintaince! should I do this or leave it
at 3450kcals a day?
2.)Your supposed to get 70/100g of carbs a day as well as 1.5g of protien per lb of body weight.So in my instance i'd be eating roughly 345g of protien a day and 70g/100g of carbs a day also. Now that leaves the rest of my kcals to come from fat.
I.E 3450 kcals a day
345g of protien=1380kcals a day
70g of carbs=280kcals a day
Which leaves 1790kcals to get from fats! this would mean im eating 198g! of fat a day! is this correct????
