Down to the wire here with my weight. Seems to be hard as hell to lose those last 10. I was researching different areas of the forums to try and find a bit of guidance with respect to energy calories. Some background, 6’1", 214 lbs, looking to get to 200 or less, but I have been stuck here for a while.
I consume about 2100-2400 cals a day. My staple is obviously protein which is usually in the 200-300 range. My question is with respect to carbs/fat. I have read on some places in the forum of diets with fats in the 90-120 grams, which to me sounds ridiculous. The carbs in these cases were listed to be around 15-40, with protein as high as usual. It confuses me some, so I figured if someone could clarify it for me, it would be helpful.
With carbs I am now trying to stay around 60-80 a day when I do little training or cardio, and around 125-175 for days I train, with a good 80 of those being solely before and after lifting. Fats are usually 35-40. Obviously it needs to change, else I wouldn’t be asking. Suggestions, comments, anything would help.
