Percentages of nutrients is a very personal thing and changes over time. It takes working carefully within certain limits for a while,m then making 1 change and seeing what that does before starting another
You may be overestimating your activity level. Even if you exercise several days per week, how many minutes do you exercise for and at what intensity? More important, what do you do the rest of the day? I would use Sedentary unless you are sitting less than 6 hours per day and on your feet the rest of the day.
There is an older podcast that does talk about it. They point out that each person is different. What works for you may not work for me. I think they said to start out 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat then adjust as needed. Some people need more carbs and some need less. Same with protein. I personally don't really watch this. I just eat 90% clean foods and let it work itself out.
Denise Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. I will not be mastered by anything.
It's never to late to be the person you were meant to be.
Even if you can't physically see the results in front of you, every single effort is changing your body from the inside. Never get discouraged.
first off thank you all very much for the podcasts. The thing is your diet programs to me seems to miss one main factor. i am 36 years old 173 cm and my weight is 90 kg, by the Custom BMR Calculation charts ( i know it is not accurate ). Moderately Active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/wk) 2719 cal Very Active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days/wk) 3026 cal
isn't that too much? from these calories you never say how much protein or carbs or fat do i need?
