    Honestly, I think your macros look like a great start, and then you can adjust them as needed. Some animal fats are okay if they fit your macros, but majority should come from olive oil, nuts, natural peanut butter, eggs, etc. Ive had great results with similar macros, I weigh less then you so my fat was a little lower to start but thats it really

    As yourself three questions:
    1) Does it fit within my macros for that meal?
    2) Will it get me closer to achieving my goals?
    3) Is there an alternative that would work more effectively in helping me reach my goals?(there are many more healthier sources of fat with higher omega contents that will aid with cardiovascular and joint health)

    How you answer these should guide you.

    Did you switch it around because it wasn't working for you or just because you read something online? Personally, I prefer to keep carbs as high as possible for as long as possible while on a cut, only bringing them down when necessary. Sometimes getting down to really low bodyfat requires it, but this is going to depend on the individual.

    well i was taking in between 350 and 400 grams carbs a day mostly rice
    around 300 grams protein
    around 120 grams fat but fats varied somewhat
    And now? Also what are your goals? From your original post, I assumed you were cutting, but not with close to 4k calories.

    started a topic On a high protein, high fat, low carb cut

    On a high protein, high fat, low carb cut

    i have come across conflicting info on the net whilst doing my research, i have lowered slightly my calories per day, and switched from high carb low fat high protein to a high protein high fat low carb diet.
    i read a couple of places that i should not eat the skin of chicken, as it is saturated fats, but i have also read the opposite that say it is fine as it is natural... i would like to eat the skin for 2 reasons, its fricking tasty lol, and it helps me get enough calories, as having low carbs has made me realise i have to eat loads to get calories compared with carbs.
    so to skin or not to skin?
Working...
