    I noticed that I have less energie when I'm lifting but I didn't decrease the weight.

    I'm scared to loose muscle, will I if I keep that diet?
    I trained 4 days a week MOnday-tuesday thursday-friday.
    I read about those high carb for the 6th meal every 4 days. But I'm not sure I quit understand what I need to eat.

    Should I have these High carb days with the diet I'm doing?
    How can I calculate how much carb for my weight for that 6th meal every 4 days? What about Protein and Fat for these Days?

    I'm don't have very big muscle and after I got leaner (see my abs) I would like to diet to get bigger.
    Can someone tell me what will I have to change in my diet to get bigger? (I want to get bigger and stay lean at the same time).

    Thanks

    Hi Patbuck! For 180lbs you are not eating enough. At the very possible lowest you should be eating 1900 cals. You will lose LBM on this diet. I would start by increasing your carbs and fat. If you want to lose fat, stick with slow burning carbs for optimum results.

    Don't worry about refeeds or carb-ups until your diet is in order. And I would start by increasing your calories.

    Or Skim milk?
    Or one extra slice of 100% whole wheat bread?

    No go with slow burning carbs. Oatmeal, Brown Rice, Sweet Potato, Legumes, Grapefruit, Peaches, Apples, Berries.

    You may want to think about losing bread or at the very least switch to a whole grain bread instead.

    Read about Essential Fatty Acids at the top of this forum. Also in the Nutritional FAQ thread towards the bottom there are a bunch of links on fats. It would be a good idea to read all those articles. Learn the why's and how's!!

    Any green veggies are good for you. Check out those links I told you about. Inside there is a great shopping list with a huge list of foods thats good for ya. I would say no to the PopCorn and shredded wheat. There are better cereals for you than that like Fiber One or Uncle Sam!


    Sorry I almost edited your above post. I hit edit instead of post reply

    Thanks again I will update my shipping list.

    Sometime I replace my chicken with beef or Horse.
    I normaly buy extra lean ground beef or lean ground horse.

    But a I have been told not to have Beef more than once a week.
    What do you think?
    Do you think I can have it as well as chicken?
    For the Horse I have been told that it was very good and I can have every day. I guest that is correct since it's leaner than beef and it has some EFA.

    And you didn't answer my questino about the carbs, I guest that because I'm right? Having the carb early in the day is the best?

    Thanks for this great help

    I could never eat horse

    You can have red meat whenever you want. I usually eat it once a day either in Ground Sirloin or a nice steak.

    Try and limit your carbs closer to bedtime.

    BROWN RICE ONLY!!!!!! White Rice is wayyyyy too high on GI! Only stick with long grain brown rice. Basamatti brown rice kicks ass! It tastes better than regular brown rice.

    First of all, get rid of the instand Oats and get yourself Old Fashioned Oats or Steel Cut oats. The less processed the better. The instant is higher on the GI as well.

    You need more fat a bit too. How bout some fish oil capsules?
    I don't see 113 G Carbs there

    Go with 40%P/40%C/20%F and start off at 12lbsxBW. That would be my suggestion because you don't seem like you want a higher fat diet.

    This ratio 50/30/20 To still get lean?

    What about the ratio to stay lean but increase muscle?

    isn't it too much of Protein?
    I though that 1.5 gram of Protein per body weight was ok.

    At 50%P your are at 1.8 gram a day per body weight 337gr.
    isn't this too much?
    Why do I need to go that High?

    Not its not too high. The minimum is 1-1.5G. I eat close to 2G per pounds.

    Any ratio will work providing your in a caloric defecit. It just depends on the amount of carbs you want to eat. 40% or 30%. Also I mean 12 cals X per LB of BW.

    I have a hard time converting all this in Gram, I don't know how to do it?

    I have this figure here.

    Calories 3000
    40% carbs = 1200 calories = 300 grams carbs
    40% protein = 1200 calories = 300 grams of protein
    20% fat = 600 calories = 66 grams of fat

    40%P/40%Carb/20%Fat

    Calories 2700
    Protein per pound of bodyweight = 1.8 - 2.0 grams
    25% carbs = 675 calories = 169 grams carbs
    50-55% protein = 1350 - 1485 calories = 337 -371 grams of protein
    20- 25% fat = 540 - 675 calories = 60 - 75 grams of fat

    50%P/25%c/20%fat

    But I can't figure how the guy get to the Grams?

    Not sure where you came up with your numbers.

    180lbs X 12 = 2160 Cals

    40% P - 864 cals / 4 = 216G Protein
    40% C - 864 cals / 4 - 216G Carbs
    20% F - 432 cals / 9 - 48 G Fat

    50% P - 1080 cals / 4 = 270G Protein
    30% C - 648 cals / 4 = 162G Carbs
    20% F - 432 cals / 9 = 48G Fat

    Sorry that was for a 190lbs person.
    Glad you gave me the math.
    Now I will be able to rebuild my diet accordingly to my weight.
    Thanks a lot.
    Whe you divide by 4 (carb and pro) and 9 (fat) this is like an universal rules that 1gr Pro equal 4 calories?

    12 cals per pound is a general guidline

    4 cal per Gram Protein
    4 cal per Gram Carb
    9 cals per Gram Fat

    And the above is your Body weight and ratios. I already figured it for you.

    The problem is that I'm trying to understand the whole diet, I'm trying to find out How to be able to figure these number by myself.

    So your are saying 12 Cal per pound is a general guide line to get lean.

    Its just a guideline. You need to experiment with yourself to find out how many cals you get lean at.

    10-12 to cut
    13-14 to maintain
    15 + to bulk

    Everyone differs and it depends on their metabolism, amount of exercise etc, hard gainer etc. There are no answers, you need to experiment and find what works for you.

    Ok Thanks a lot, I really really appreciate that :P
    It's so great, I'm so happy.
    I'll rebuild my diet now.
    Thanks

    Ohh yes an other question :P
    How long should I stay on each of these cycle?

    10-12 to cut
    13-14 to maintain
    15 + to bulk

    I guest I can't stay on the cut for ever?
    and when you bulk do you stay lean or you get a bit of fat?

    Depending on how clean you eat while you bulk will depend on the amount of fat you gain.

    You can cut until your happy. Every 5-6 weeks you should tweak it, change foods around play with the calories etc.
