Hi there, im currently doing split routines 2 days then rest, then 2 days, rest something like that. i’ve been drinking protein shakes during my workouts. On my off days, i go to the gym and just do cycling for cardio, is it bad idea to keep taking those protein shakes? should I decrease the amount?
There was a point where I was eating enough carbs, lifted and did cardio everyday and i was losing a pound a day. I was probably breaking down my protein and I don’t want to do that again.
And Under 7 Habits of Highly Effective Nutritional Programs, it said 30% of energy intake should be from fat, why? Why can’t I just avoid fat if its what im trying to burn and utilize energy from carbs and burn my existing fat?
