Today is my 50th birthday and I'm just getting started! This week I bumped my fat up a little bit ....if you consider 30g a little bit. 😂 At the end of my cut I was at 135g of fat per day. I dropped it to 125g for the first couple of weeks while I increased my protein after it being so low for a while. This last week I was shooting for 155g of fat to start locking in my Maximum Energy Threshold (MET). It seems that 145g - 155g is still not enough fuel to halt my fat loss. Finding out my MET gives me exact data that I can use to manipulate my energy intake and find a balance between managing body fat and satiety. The idea is to not be hangry or stressed over food too much. Body Composition for this week. Body Fat Mass is down 2.2 pounds Body Weight is pretty even Skeletal Muscle Mass is up 1.5 pounds Body Fat % is down 1.2% Average Daily Macros for the week Protein - 185g Fat - 145g Carbs - 6g
I'm a health and fitness coach. I've been following a carnivore lifestyle for over 4 years. I'm tired of the misinformation and dogma around nutrition and decided to start documenting my experience. I want to show that meat is the healthiest thing you can eat and carbs are not essential to building better physical ability, and quality of life.
