Question Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

I recorded for the first time yesterday and this is what I got. (I've gotten results doing this but I know they could be better).

Carbs: 112gm
Protein: 127.9gm
Fat. 156.3gm

Is that too much fat? I do lots of cardio and workout every other day intensely.

Thanks.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Thats way too much fat. Your ratios should definitely show more calories from carbs and protein if you want more muscle gain. What are you eating?

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

448 calories from carbs / 18% carbs (1g carbs = 4 calories)
508 calories from protein / 21% protein (1g protein = 4 calories)
1404 calories from fat / 59% fat (1g fat = 9 calories)

2360 calories total

If you were trying to eat low fat that is far too much fat. If you're trying to eat low carb your fat is a little low and your carbs are too high.

If you want to follow low fat then you're looking at ratios that look like this:

Carbs = 40-60%
Protein = 30-20%
Fat = 30-20%

If you want to follow a low carb plan you're looking at rations that look like this:

Fat = 60-75%
Protein = 25-20%
Carbs = 15-5%

You can also eat more isocalorically; which looks like this:

Fat = 33%
Protein = 33%
Carbs = 33%

The idea is if your fat is high your carbs should be low and if your carbs are high your fat should be low.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

That is quite alot of fat. You'd make better gains with slighty more protein daily (150gms over 5 meals). Your carb in take is low you should shoot for 300gms. and fat should be at about 80 -100gms. thats about 2500 Kcal remember to shoot for 20gms of fibre also.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Sorry for the long time to reply.

Thanks for the info guys, I know I should be cutting down on my fat im working on that.

Naxis: Im eating a lot of eggs, a lot of white bread, lots of bananas, canned beans, canned tuna, lots of chicken, lean veal and beef, here and there I endulge in some pork, water is my main source of hydration though I drink Mounain Dew of Pepsi with my creatine.

Also lots of natural peanut butter (very high in p),but I always mess up by grabbing mcdonalds or something when im on the run.

I will make a record next week and report it, be busy with my schoolwork this week.

Once again as always, thanks a million guys, gotta go work out now actually then im off to bed, good night boys n girls.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Stop eating white bread. If you're going to eat bread at all, it should be whole wheat. Second, don't eat so much canned food.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Hello, For a 30% or less total fat intake for 2500 cal. The total fat intake should be 83 g. or less. 30% or less is considered a low-fat/lean diet.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Why not the canned food? Only canned stuff I eat is basically tuna & beans, mainly because for 1 dollar per can you get 20 grams of protein or more.

I have a lot of bills to pay and when it comes to food I dont have too much to spend you catch my drift?

I took down what I ate today but didn't record because I couldn't get the nurtrition info for everything.

2 Shakes, each one had: 3 tbsp natural peanut butter, 1 banana, 1 cup milk, half a small box of egg whites.

2 cups of oatmeal with a little brown sugar and about 50-100 ml of milk.

10 chicken fingers, tomatoe sandwich with mayo and bacon, glass of orange juice.

1 pound of shark meat for dinner (dont know how much protein, but it has a lot), half a ring of shrimps, seafood sauce, salad, potatoes.

Iced tea with creatine, 5 8oz glasses of water, and im going to eat some more before going to sleep, and drink some more water too.

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

Canned food tends to be high in sodium, the foods you mentioned are not typically the ones we think of when we say "avoid canned foods", however Tuna is good, as are beans.

The food is one thing, jason, but are you eating it as it's posted, were those your 4 meals for the day? If so they look a little unbalanced - the oatmeal w/ milk is almost all carbs, no protein. And one pound of meat is excessive, really - no matter how yummy it may be!

I take it you're trying to bulk up?

Re: Daily amount of protein, fat, and carbs.

You got it right Gopher im trying to bulk up.

I ate them as listed, not really in large meals except for the dinner.

I've added 3 inches to my arms, and gained maybe 10 pounds over quite a period of working out, over this period I became more and more aware of how to properly train and that.

So im guessing I need to eat my meals more solidly and packed together? Balanced meals with carbs, protein, etc.. all together?
