View Full Version : Help with low carb diet info

I am wondering, in a low carb diet what % of total calories come from protein, carbs, fats? Or what do I multiply my bodyweight by to get the grams? (still applying to a low carb diet, and I have no interest in taking part in any Keto diet)

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about doing a low carb diet if you are trying to add mass. I would stick with the rule of thumb of taking in between 1 to 1.5 grams of protien per pound of bodyweight. As far as the carbs go, as long as you are getting them from good food sources you shouldn't worry about them at this stage. The only time I recommend a low carb diet is if you are getting ready for a show. Good luck.
