I Want to build muscle mass and loose fat at the same time. In order to maintain my current weight, I need to consume 2500 calories. Do I need to increase my calories (200-400) in order to gain muscle mass, or Do i need to go on a calorie deficit. Thank you

Hi. I am a 42, 5"4" female weighing 123 pounds. I am trying to build muscle using P90X3 and have incorporated running in lieu of the cardio with the program. (running and cardio is essential for my job). I am following the protion fix meal plan, but feel that I am not getting the protein or carbs that I need as I feel tired often. (I work second shift.) What is a good plan for me to build the muscle while maintaining cardiovascular fitness? I am also trying to lean out, not lose weight per se, but look more cut and hike up the booty! Thanks!!!!

Hello, I'm 5'4 weighing 138lb with 23% body fat. My goal is to gain muscle in my legs and butt. I've been waist training for 6 weeks now so my waist is getting smaller but I'm unsure what to eat. I originally started eating 200g of protein each day and 40g of carbs on non-leg days and on leg days (twice a week) I'd up my carb intake to 160g. I'm seeing results in my stomach as I'm starting to appear alot learner but I'm also appearing leaner in my lower half which I don't want. My goal is to keep my waist small and get a bigger curvier butt. What do you suggest my protein, carb, and fat intake be along with workouts?

Some people say an average person needs to eat around 60 grams of protein a day but your calculator says 150, which is right? oh and my goal is simply to lose fat

doesnt matter if your goal is to lose weight although a higher protein intake will help you lose weight faster because of decreased appetite and more calories burned at digestion but you need to focus on overall calorie intake to lose weight. see this diet

Hey, i'm 19 6"0 and weight : 62kg (skinny as fuck) you said to eat 0.5 to 1g of protein but your calculator is telling me to eat 230g of protein is it normal?

Hi Adrian,
I find your website very helpful and informative. I am 5'1 207 lbs, yes I know I am overweight and I have been working at for the last couple of years off and on. I have been more serious the past 3 weeks. My question is though I have gotten so many different calorie counts to lose weight I am not sure what is my exact calorie count to lose weight. I have been working out 4 days a week for 20 mins. Can you give me the correct information as to how many calories, carbs, proteins, and fats I should intake to help me lose weight. I started today with the jumping jacks workout. Thanks

October 01, 2014

Adrian Bryant

forget about carbs, protein and fats and just focus on calories with this diet and it'll take some trial and error on your part to see what calorie amount (not the carbs, etc) that works best for you but generally 1200-to-2000 is a good start

I am 5'6 and 168 pound. I want to burn fat and drop weight. What is the best ratio, diet plan and workout plan to follow.

August 23, 2014

Adrian Bryant

that is determined by what works best for you but dropping weight is ALL about calories and not # of carbs, pro and fat so see this

Hi,

I was recently diagnosed with Gastroduodenal Crohn's Disease after 4ish months of chronic vomiting which meant that I couldn't even keep water down. This has led to me losing 50lbs over that period, which suits me just fine really because I was overweight before. I'm not 5"2.5 and 129lbs. I've slowly been eating more but because I'm trying to combat my illness through diet (which has been working great) rather than take damaging medication - I find it hard to maintain weight. I'd be fine with losing maybe 10 more pounds but want to do it gradually. I seem to have reached a plateau anyway but I'm concerned about my health once I start to lose again.

I'm on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (it's especially formulated for IBD) and after being confined to a wheelchair because of weakness, I've been feeling better. However, it does not allow grains, starch or carbs of any kind that do not come from approved vegetables, fruit and dairy products etc...which makes it challenging to reach a healthy calorie range. I also have issues digesting nuts, which are allowed but perhaps after so long of not eating, my stomach is extra sensitive.

Anyway, that's the background. I was wondering if you had any advice on what and how much to eat in order to maintain a healthy weight and how to increase my daily calorie intake without overloading my stomach as I get very full very quick. It roughly stands at 300-500 mostly from vegetables, fish and seafood.

I know that very low calorie intake means that when you start eating again, you put on weight but I'm not sure if that depends on what you eat or what the maintenance calorie threshold is. I'm also currently quite inactive because I'm still recovering.

Thank you.

July 31, 2014

Adrian Bryant

so are you currently tracking your calorie intake daily?

August 02, 2014

Jessica

Yes. I use Livestrong.

August 04, 2014

Adrian Bryant

so how many total caloreis are you eating daily? is it only 300-500 per day?

August 05, 2014

Jessica

Yes, that's correct. I've been working my way up from basically nothing for 4-5 months while I was sick.

August 06, 2014

Adrian Bryant

If possible you'll want to start off with 1500 calories which shouldn't cause any weight gain at all but I can't give you a magic number. It's best to just start off with 1500 and track that and basically see what happens and go from there making changes in your calorie total every 2-to-4 weeks.

If consuming more 500+ is a problem then the only thing I suggest you try to add to your diet is supplments like shakes or diet bars and also nuts that are high in fat add up in calories fast

Thanks man! Appreciate you!!

FSL

To begin with I wanted to say that your efforts on this site are much appreciated. Its organized, efficient and completely free.

My question has to do with counting calorie, pro, and fat intake. I wanted to make sure I got it right. Lets look at an example: Brown rice. After doing the above calculation for a 2500 calorie intake, split into 4 meals, the table read that I should intake 78g of carbs per meal.
So one serving size of brown rice (195g) has:
- 216 calories
- 45g of carbs

Which means I have to find another source of carbs because the ratio of calories/carbs is to large ..

Am I getting it right?

In this link ( www.nowloss.com ) It say that I need to eat 250g of carbs to have eaten 1000 calories, but in the case of brown rice, 250g of carbs from brown rice is 1389 calories, so again I need to change my carbs source (or add another with less calorie intake). I wanted to make sure I got the right idea of what counting calories means

Thanks in advance,

Sincerely, FSL

Adrian Bryant

Hey I'm 22 and my weight classes me as obese.
I have always played sport
So my body is used to being physically active
So I have to push it harder.
Also Have PCOS and insulin resistance
So I'm struggling to loose weight
I high intensity group personal train 6 days a week
Netball soccer season that's 2 extra day (sat-sun)
Plus Oztag (1night) and swimming 2-3 mornings After Training

My question is how can I eat enough
To have energy and motivation to kill it and get through my sport and sessions while minimising/ preventing the affects of hypoglycemia and
lose weight

What would my ratios be?
Sometimes. I feel I need "my weetbix" to get through a hard session.
