    40/40/20 Diet question


    So ive been looking to see what diet works for me and i do like the 40/40/20 diet... I weigh 163 lbs so my macros are protien: 185 Carbs: 185 and Fats: 41 ... Since switchin to this diet i am stronger and dropped 2 lbs in 2 weeks ... My question is should i up more calories since i workout 6 days a week or just leave it as is and see how it works

    dude thats like 1800 cals. if youre tryin to lose weight, thats fine (little low). id probly lower carbs and increase fat myself

    if youre tryin to bulk, double the fats and carbs. then youll be sittin at around 3000cals and still plenty of protein

    if you want your calorie intake to be the same you are going to have to either drop carbs or protein if you want to up fats
