Since I have been lifting, I never paid much, if any, attention to ratios or even to how many calories I eat a day. When I first started I knew I needed to bulk, so I just came up with a diet, watched and saw if I gained or not, and if I didn't, I just added more food. With the exception of making sure I eat 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound a day, I never paid any attention to calories or ratios or how many carbs or anything like that. It was always, "ok, I'm not gaining, I'll add a second can of tuna or 2 potatoes or a cup of milk or more nuts" etc. and that was how I did it. When I cut I just took out a food similar to how I added it when I bulked. I again never looked at calories or ratios. I just knew that if I wasn't gaining weight I needed more, and if I wasn't losing, I needed less. I just never paid attention to what the 'more' or 'less' was. Hopefully that made sense, lol.
Now I'm thinking I shouldn't be doing it like this, and that watching the ratios will be a smart move. So, I will. I just wanted to know what the normal ratios are of protein, carbs and fat when cutting and when bulking. When I say normal, I mean gaining the least amount of fat and most amount of muscle when you bulk, and losing the least amount of muscle and the most amount of fat when you cut.
Thanks in advance.
