Hey Peeps,
Interested to hear what everyones macros are when trying to keep lean.

I my views at the moment are
For calories
Bodyweight x 12 Cutting
Bodyweight x 15 Maintenance
Bodyweight x 18 Mass

Will monitor and change depending on progress

Cutting = Bodyweight x1.5 protein
Maintenance= Bodyweight x1.2 protein
MASS= Bodyweight x1 protein

Cutting = Bodyweight x0.45 Fat
Maintenance= Bodyweight x0.35 Fat
MASS= Bodyweight x3 Fat

Carbs fill the rest

But I keep reading more and more that I should be consuming less protein and more carbs. Whats everyone's views?

Are you high protein or high carb?

I personally am quite flexible with protein and carbs. I aim for 1g per 1lb of body weight, but if I go over then no biggy I just take from carbs

I just eat a balanced diet and as my calories go up or down I reduce or increase each group to keep the balance. Seems to have been the best approach after years and years of trying everything else

Macros are overrated IMO. To keep lean, eat maintenance calories or lower. Simple as that.

Are you basing these numbers on lean body weight or overall?

This makes no sense to me. If I was to eat maintenance calories and it was all coming from carbs or fat id look like shit IMO
