First, is there a website that names a food and gives it an average nutritional value? Say, I wanted to know what was in an egg. Or any other food.
I don't really understand a question, but basically when i am planning a diet, i figure out my daily cals then pick a ratio of macros to use (for example isocaloric = 33/33/33). So 33% of cals from fat, 33 from protein, 33 from carbs. You can use any number of ratios and diets from low carb, to 40/40/40 p/c/f, 50/30/20 p/f/c etc.Originally posted by Michael D
Second, if I get on a bulking diet, how much fat and other "bad" things should I take in. Say I am eating 2k calories a day and I want to go to 3.5k. Do I eat the same amount of fat as before or do I adjust that? You know how it always says at the bottom of a nutritional value label, values are based on a 1500 calorie/day diet? If I were eating 3000 per day, would I double that?
Re: the label thing. The percents to the right of the grams/cals are useless, just check the grams/cals to keep track of how many you are taking in.
