    Daily Protein/Carb/Fat targets

    Primal Fuel
    Just wondering for those who count, what targets you aim for each day according to your weight or desired weight.

    Thanks

    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

    sweet, im 110kg or 242 pounds.

    average count at the moment is

    protein 200gm
    carbs 20gm
    fat 100gm

    pretty sure it needs some adjustment with more healthy carbs but not sure on how much fat i should be aiming for?????

    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!

    so obviously then i should be aiming as the book suggests for 50-100 for weight loss and not the extreme ketosis range

    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.
