Hi,
I just joined this forum because I've been looking for a place to find the basic information on nutrition for weight lifting.
I've been lifting weights and running for the past six years. I take the requisite protein shake after I lift and the morning after, but was hoping for some advice.
I am 180 lbs 5'11 and want to exchange what fat I have for lean muscle.
I just wanted to know the basics behind 'maintaining a positive nitrogen balance' or why you need more protein when you lift. Or something even as basic as, "what does it mean that fat has 9 calories to it", etc.
Finally I would like to know what percentages I should have of fat/protein/carbs. I exercise about an hour a day (45 mins. weight lifting & 15 mins running). I'm going to school so I sit a good deal, but I do walk a lot as well.
Thanks!

wait...let me just go get my silver platter.

How about read more and then come back if you have a particular question.

The information is out there - you need to make the effort to find and read it.

Thanks for the responses, as usual I was too stupid to look up the stickies, but I appreciate the links!
