The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    ok

    Protein and carbs have 4 calories per gram...

    Fat has 9 calories per gram...

    So you have

    Protein 300 grams / 1200 calories
    Carbs 400 grams / 1600 calories
    fat 32 grams / 288 calories

    So you are consuming a total of 3088 calories


    Then you need to work out your percentages....

    you do that by the following sum :

    proportion of calories divided by total calories x 100

    i.e

    PROTEIN = 1200 / 3088 * 100 = 38.86 %
    CARBS = 1600 / 3088 * 100 = 51.81 %
    FAT = 288 / 3088 * 100 = 9.32 %

    It adds up to 99.9 % (ok so I am 0.1 out because I didnlt round off properly !!)

    When you do this just make sure to convert grams into calories first as fat holds more calories per gram and it would not be an even calculation if you just did it in grams..

    Hope that helps..

    300 gram of protein = 300*4 (1200)
    400 gram of carb = 400*4 (1600)
    32 gram of fat = 32*9 (288)

    1200
    1600
    288
    -------
    3088 Cal total

    1200/total cal = 39%
    1600/total cal = 52%
    288/total cal = 9%

    For a breakdown of
    Pro = 39%
    Carb = 52%
    fat = 9%

    All of course equalling 100% total, or damn near when all figuring is done...

    Hope that helps...
