    Macros!

    Shop Now
    What are some of your macros? Im 5'10" @ 146#, and I do 4 days a week of bodyweight strength training with always improved PRs. I just wanted to get an idea of peoples caloric intake and macros.
    Mine are on average:
    calories-3100
    fat-160g
    Protein-180g
    Carbs- 80g

    Some days my fat and protein can be as high as 220g. I eat 2# of meat per day, so depending on the cut, the macros vary by a wide range. Ill check my charts tomorrow and give more accurate macros. Im just curious to see peoples intakes, ESPECIALLY those of you that are successful with accomplishing your ideal BMI and athletic goals. But all input id loved. Peace and hair grease, my primal family.

    2000-2600 cal a day
    200g + protein
    50-150g carbs
    70-100g fat

    All depends.
    I tend to eat more on recovery/rest days than on training days (I often fast in these anyway)

    The ideal ratio will be dependent on all of your lifestyle factors and just a bit of your genetic predisposition. The PB ratios tend to be a good starting point though and work for the vast majority.

    So that would be.....

    .7-1g of protein/lb of lean mass. So you said 145lbs? Lets give you 120g of protein then. So if we prioritize protein...allow for a top limit on carbs and bottom limit on fat you get something like the following as a starting point in the sense of eating in an ancestral Primal manner.

    Protein- 120g (at least)
    Carbs - up to 150g
    Fat- As much as you like, but probably at least 100g.

    Everyone who gave me macro advice when I first started posting here.

    Is it more protein than fat for people who do rigorous exercise as opposed to people like me who just walk 2 miles on the treadmill at 2.8 - 3 mph 6 days/week?
