I have a question. Suppose I wanted to use the guidelines of nutrient %'s. Let's say I need to eat 1,500 a day without
exercise to lose weight. Of that....
15% of fat = 25g
40% carbs = 150g
45% Protein = 168g
Of course though I will be getting some days of exercise. And then I eat back
my calories so I can net 1,500 net and be sure I'm not undereating. So if I burn off 300 cals through a work out, I need to eat 300 more. Which brings my total intake to 1,800. My new grams keeping the same percentages are:
15% of fat = 30g
40% carbs = 180g
45% Protein = 202g
My question is... is this new amount of grams of each really
equivalent to what it would have been if I didn't exercise? And when eating more, naturally the intake of nutrients increases... do I stay with the 25g of fat and just increase my protein and carbs after a work out? Or increase everything?
I hope I wasn't confusing. lol
