Hello my wrestling season will start soon and was wondering how my diet should be. Approximate my carbs/fats/protein. Thanks

The American College of Sports Medicine has great suggestions (or guidlines) and they break it down to per kg body weight for each macro nutrient for various sports. Some questions you should ask your self is what weight class are you shooting for? how many days a week do u practice? how long typically do the sessions last? The amount of calories consumed should depend on energy expenditure, which has several factors and varies for every individual.
I don't know how much of a choice you have, but wrestling near your current weight would be ideal IMO....
That being said get about 1 gram per pound in protein... about 0.5 to 1 grams per pound of quality fats (Omega's, etc)then the rest are fibrous and complex carbs up to your total caloric intake (which for maintenance would be about 12x your bodyweight in calories)
I will have practice for two hours and 5 days a week. I weight 145 an still deciding what weight to go. Whatever weight I go I want to make sure I don't lose muscle massOriginally Posted by dalexander
If I go for a 1.5 pounds a week of fat by taking 5250 calories out each week will I still be able to keep muscle mass
What do you mean reduce my calories partiallyOriginally Posted by Marcinator
This way you're still meeting the 750 calorie defecit daily, and you will shed the fat, but you'll also be keeping most of the muscle.
