It’s good to be posting in the maintenance page after hitting some targets in terms of dropping weight (kg), bodyfat (%) and waist circumference (cm)!
My question to those who are already in maintenance mode is what guidelines you are following in terms of carb / protein / fat levels. When I was doing the Fast800 it was all quite straightforward:
• < 30g carbs
• >80g protein
• with the balance of the above being good fats and usually in the appx.40g range
This worked out to 15% carbs, 40% protein and 45% good fats. Now that I am going back up to my TDEE of 2000 but still wanting to stay relativelt low carb I am confused as to how to make it work. But if I replicate the % split above it would mean 75g carb, 200g protein and 100g fat. All of these seem too high, especially the carb and protein levels. But if I reduce the carbs to 50g then then I need to increase the protein and/or fat which already seem on the high side. And I can’t reduce the protein or fat levels without further increasing the carbs which are already high.
How is everyone else dealing with this?
Thanks in advance.
