I am a female and weigh 215. I am 5'6 and cronometer has my daily protein intake set at 75G, with my Carbs being 40G and my Fat at 118. G - is this correct?? I am truly lost and am getting depressed
You should probably put this one in the keto group because that seems to be the current fad.
I lost 140lbs and never had success with keto and was postmenopausal when I did it and it was pretty darned simple losing about 2lbs per week.
Check out bright line eating. It was the thing that clicked for me. All it costs is a cheap book and a lot of FB groups.
@Ridley7838 Don't fret and don't get discouraged. You can do this! Learning what works for you and what your body needs is personal. So don't jump on any diet bandwagon but think sensibly and try to work with what you've got. I'm not even three months in and have changed my macros around a half dozen times. Tweaking them to adjust to what seems to be working and fine tuning it.
I'm focused on fat loss and muscle gain and I am 42 and male. I started at 277 two and half months ago. What I'm doing is I turned off exercise and set my activity to zero in settings. So I'm only eating what my body needs for basal metabolic functions.. There is some science now saying activity doesn't count calorie in out equations correctly. I've adjusted my macros to be 30% Protein, 25% Carbs, and 45% Fats. I eat three times a day 8am, noon, and 4pm, no snacking and fast averaging 15 hours a night. I focus on low carb, whole foods. My exercise is weekly swimming, 2 to 3x a week basic calisthenics about 30 mins, and 2 to 3 times a week Hatha yoga about 30min. In the two and half months I'm about 26 pounds down with more stamina better, flexibility, improved balance, excellent blood pressure, improved strength and fit into my old jeans comfortably now. I have a long way to go and this is not a diet it is a lifestyle. I'm having fun with all of it.
