View Full Version : Complex Carbohydrates VS. Protien

02-27-2005, 09:27 AM
As of now I'm really confused on how much protein to be eating and how much carbo hyudrate to be eating. I've heard from some people that carbohydrates are the way to go, but this forum seems to be really pushing protein. Any ideas? How much should I be eating too?

Depends on your goals...are you bulking or cutting? Regardless of a bulk or cut, I'd stick with 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. When bulking, I'd get at least 20% of my calories from fat, then fill the rest in with carbs. When it comes to a cut, I like to cycle my carbs through the week.

you need both, get 1g/lb as a guideline of protein
