    I always felt the percentages and what someone is taking in was overthought. You have a minimum required amount of protein you need to build muscle; that's fixed. You have your total net calories you need; that's fixed. I personally don't think it matters if the remainder is fat or carbs but I will say you can eat a lot more carbs then fat to get to your total caloric intake.

    40c 40p 20f was my usual go to when I used to track. I’d even play with it and go 40,30,30 and be happy with the outcome. Gotta be in tune with your body and adjust here and there to find what works best for you.

    These days it’s about 60%P 20%C 20%F.

    I don’t really crave carbs anymore. The hardest part in the beginning was learning how to find foods without them.

    yea, the carbs I think are the hardest for most but my belief is because the type of “food” it is...it’s attractive...but trust me...if you’re picking “The Original Flourless Low Glycemic Ezekiel 4:9” bread as pat of your carbs..you might give up carbs as there is no flavor or excitement LOL

    Now, unless I'm on a given diet...this is how I choose to eat on a regular basis and % might not be 100% correctly guessed but you'll get what I mean


    Protein - 80 %

    Carbs - 15 %

    Fat - 5 %
    How are you able to poop???? Are you getting any fiber at all?
    Rest in Peace Robot Lord. First round of Natty Boh is on me when I make it up there with you brother.
