Lean Gains Macros
Whats up guys,
I've recently been trying to get a plan together to start Lean Gains....just a few quick questions.
On build days, it says carb high/ protein moderate/ fat low
On burn days, protein high/ fat moderate / carb low
Obviously this depends on how different people respond and I plan on playing with the macros as I go, but what is considered high/moderate/low? I powerlift and have been on a heavy bulking diet for three years, which is high cal high protein high carb all the time haha so I'm a bit confused.
Also, I counted my maintenance at 3000...so I made my build day 3600 and burn day a bit lower at 2200. Will this be ok or should I stay strict with the +20 -20? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Once I get it all figured out I will post my plan up for some more suggestions. Looking forward to starting a new diet that many have been having success with.

Everything sounds pretty good to me. What is your primary goal? If it is recomping then it looks like you have things set up pretty well to start. Of course you may have to adjust some as time goes on, but it looks like a very good starting point. The amount of carbs you take in depends a lot on how sensitive you are to them also. The more sensitive, the less carbs you take in. But you have the right idea to take in higher amounts on build days and less on burn days. I am recomping and stick pretty close to the +20%/-20% rule and have had pretty good success. I'm doing 3k build days and 1800 burn days, but my maintenance is lower at around 2300Recoverbro Elite"This is what we've been working on"

I think as long as you stay in a good recomp range you'll have some good success with dropping that BF down and maintaining or even adding onto your strength goals. Should be fun!!

I was just about to ask the exact same question. I have also just started LeanGains. Looking to drop some bodyfat. For the past 2 weeks I have just been getting used to the LeanGain eating schedule, without really watching my macros too closely. Now I would like to really get more precise about my macro intake. All the LeanGains site says about macros is what the OP said. No percentages.
What percentages are considered high, medium, low?
