Help me out here,
I’m reading through the old T-Dawg diet (Issue 83) and I read “Protein intake should be 1.4-1.8 grams per kilogram (0.6-0.8 grams per pound) of bodyweight.”
Then in T-Dawg diet (Issue 86) I’m reading on how to estimate calorie intake “Let’s say that you weigh 200 pounds and have an average metabolism. Multiplying 200 by 17, you get 3,400. We’ll consider that a ballpark figure of your daily maintenance intake of calories.”
This would mean that our 200-pound T-Man would consume (0.7 * 200 =) 140 grams of protein or 560 calories from protein a day??? This does not make sense…
Please roast away but can someone advise me on the correct formula’s to calculate calorie/protein intake.
