Lean Body Mass
Hi! Hope that someone can help me understand this.
I'm exercising 4-5 times a week and at the gym the personal trainer told me I should eat 1 gr of protein per kg. So this means 61gr as I weight 61 kg.
I'm also trying to loose some body fat and after more than 1 month at the gym, even if I do more weight lifting and little cardio, I haven't loose any weight but put on muscles which is not bad.
I know I eat lots of carbs, mainly fruits. So the last few days I've eaten lots of protein and little fruit (no pasta or bread) and I feel very good and lean.
I'd like then to follow a low carb diet. I set it up on Crono under Ketodiet and it's written "gr of proteins per LEAN BODY MASS" and it allowes me 52 gr of protein per day. Is it different than my body weight? Why not 61gr as per my body weight as they told me at the gym?
Many thanks for any advice or suggestions!
