    Lean body mass?

    Shop Now
    I just checked out my lean body mass using a calculator and it said mine was 101lbs. So if I eat around 1g protein per lb lbm = around 101g and fat should be around 49g. This means the rest should be carbs but that means eating about 98g carbs and I am trieng to stay low carb at 30-40g for weight loss. So what should I do as if I bring carbs down to this amount then protein is upped and fat by quite a lot.

    WOW, what is your height and current weight? How much do you think you have to loose?
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    You'd replace some of those carbs with fat.

    I estimated my lean body mass to be about the same as you. It turns out that's quite a bit of meat to eat each day.

    Yeah, I missed the source of the 49 g fats number too. That's like a 2 oz chunk of grass-fed butter. I'd typically slather that much on a steak dinner with a side of vegetables.

    As an example of (I think) healthy macronutrient ratios, I'm currently playing around with mine in an attempt to lean up quickly for vacation. I'm currently aiming for ~200 g fats on workout days and ~100 g on non-workout days.

    Because it is supposed to be 0.3 x body weight (166lb) no?
