Hey, I’m currently getting in ~100g of protein a day and I weigh 180lbs. I know this is under the recommended dosage, but I’m trying to lose a little flab. My weekday diet is in the 2,000 - 2,200 calorie range., so I guess that means I’m at about 20% protein. I’m definitely working out enough (in my humble opinion), but I’m concerned that I’m holding myself back with my protein dosage.
I’m having a hard time figuring out how to get the right balance. In my experience I’ve been able to be lean, but no so muscular, or muscular but not so lean. As I’m writing this I’m thinking instead of “adding” more protein, I should be replacing some carbs with protein and keep the calorie count the same until I lean up some.
Thanks in advance for the input.
