The Perfect Health Diet Discussion
I just got this book in the mail yesterday and was able to skim the first half last night.
They recommend that your marcros are very? close 65% fat, 20% carbs, 15% protein.
I'm running a caloric deficit right now until I lose my desired amount of fat reserves. My macro averages have been approximately 1500 cal, 60g fat(540cal or 35%), 100g carbs(400cal or 25%), and 150g protein(600cal or 40%).
I have my maintenance caloric level guesstimated at 1900cal - so lets use this number for my longterm intake. Using this number I could keep my protein on the hign end of their recommendation - 150g putting me at 32% - and keep my carbs at 100g ~20% I like those two numbers and they land within in their 'plateau range' I think(the protein is high, but I think this is still within their acceptable range..... my problem is getting to ~105g of fat without increasing my protein any higher(or eventually getting protein lower if it is too high).
Filling out my macros to 1900cal with 105g of fat only puts my fat intake at 50% and to get there even (and here's my real question/dilemma) I'd have to up my oils, like coconut oil which they highly recommend. My instincts tell me to stay with real, whole foods instead of oils, etc.
What are your opinions on all this?
I gotta run to work, but wanted to get a discussion started on getting to the macros they recommend, if there is any first hand experiences here, educated opinions, etc, etc.
I hope all my math is correct.
Lets keep it positive and on track please.
There is a huge difference between talking about how to do something and getting it fucking done.
