    150g for protein every day no matter what, as I lift heavy 3x/week and sprint 1-2x/week.

    at least 100g carbs postworkout after exercise
    other days keep carbs below 50g

    fat varying depending on my appetite

    I think I am losing 1-2lbs per week, since it is hard as I am gaining muscle. My pants are definitely looser after a month, and I think this is pretty good considering I am eating at a "maintenance calorie" level for my 5'3" ~160lb frame of 2,000 calories.

      I eat around 2900-3000 on workout days, which usually includes around 350-375g of carbs. Rest/active recovery days vary a lot but its always less than workout days. Sometimes I'll have a decent amount of starch and make it up to around 200g of carbs, and somedays I'll go low carb and eat a lot of fat. I'm around 130-132lbs now and plan on staying put there and maxing out my strength.

        Off topic, but glad to see this. I am 5'4" and in my mind, I was thinking I could carry 150 - 160 if I were fit, which means I am closer to my goal than I thought. I was shooting for 125 which I was before baby number 4 but I was a manic at the gym and I can't remember what I ate but I dont think that much or that well, and I didnt know if it was realistic to think I could ever be that again, but I couldnt picture what 150 would look like either. Thanks for posting. It made me give out a sigh of relief, to know that I might be about half way rather than a third of the way Gives me a sense of renewed hope

            Im 5'5 starting weight 140 (trying not to weigh myself for 1 mo.!) I keep my macronutrients at 60/25/15% (fats/pro/carbs) although I should probably increase protein a bit since I work out a lot. This is working for me though, I can tell I'm losing weight and I feel really good.


            20g of carbs is really really low! I would not suggest this for longer than a few weeks!

                    Looks like I'm the tallest one here (5'6. LOL). I don't typically count macros, but I try to base each day's food on a decent-sized serving of fatty meat or pastured eggs. Everything else is kind of accoutrement. I lift heavy 2x/week, sprint 1x/week and train BJJ 3-5x/week. I'd say for sure that I rarely see 100g of carbs, and 25-30 is probably typical. Protein probably ranges from 50ish to a 200, depending on the menu, and the rest is fat.

                        500 g of fat would be 4500 cal!!! ( 500*9(calories/g))
                        I would try 200g of fat, 200 g pro, 100 g carbs ( or you could do 150 g each pro and carbs)

                        For the record, I'm female so I'm TALL

                        That would be 3000 cal- don't know if you want/ need to go that high. I was looking at the guy that does 3000 cal...oops

                          I'm modeling my stats around Staci of Nerdfitness: Meet Staci: Your New Powerlifting Super Hero | Nerd Fitness

                          She's 5'4" and 142lbs at the bottom. This is with a 3 plate deadlift. My own 1RM is around 280, so I think it is fair to say that I only have only 15-20lbs of pure fat left to lose that is hindering gym performance.
