Ok, so I’ve been battling to drop off that excess fat that built up during my final semester at college. You know how it is, do I study for another eight hours to make sure I graduate or go do something more fun? Well, I did gained some extra weight because of more than normal inactivity.
I did pretty well during my initial phase on a lower carb diet and was really noticing results but have since stopped because I was getting really weak and was even starting to get symptoms like getting dizzy in the evenings. I have read about the T-Dawg diet and have begun making out a diet based on it but I have one question.
I weigh 215 lbs. and have calculated my caloric needs to be 3225 (215*15). On the T-Dawg diet you consume roughly 1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight which puts me at 322.5 and only 100 grams of carbohydrates.
After doing the math this puts me at only 1690 calories. Do I get the rest of those calories from fat? I understand the concept of a higher fat diet and how my body uses it for energy, but if these numbers are correct than I would take in approximately 170.5 grams of fat to meet my caloric goal of 3225. This just doesn’t seem right.
Does anybody have any input on this? It would be greatly appreciated!
