I just posted this on another site, but figured why not post it here too.
I am currently taking in 2500 calories on off days and 2830 on days.
I stopped gaining weight 2 weeks ago so I am going to bump my calories up to 2700 off training days and 3025 on training days.
I have made my diet plans using an micro nutrient ratio of 35% protein, 25% carbs and 40% fat. I came to that ratio using Berardi’s Precision Nutirion kit.
Here is where I need help.
I have read that you should get 1.5 grams of protein per body weight. Using this ratio I am already over that by 80g. If I use the same type of diet/ratio than I will be way over 1.5g per body weight. So how much protin is too much?
So that way I see it is I have two choices. 1. change up my micronutrient ration to higher carbs and lower protein but watch body fat very close since I gain fat easily. Or 2. make a new diet plan with 1.5g per body weight protein and 1-1.5g per body weigh carbs thus forgeting about the micro nutrient ration.
Which would be better? 1 or 2? Any other suggestions? (besides shut up and eat)
I know I over think things but I am not getting any youger so I want to get the best diet I can, plus I already have JB;s PN kit.
