    Proper cutting macros for women????

    I was just wondering if when a woman cuts, do you use the same type of macros that you would use for a guy (i.e. 50c/30p/20f)? or would it be wise to use a different approach to the macros?

    I know the macros approach for men isn't what everyone uses but its the generally accepted idea for what to do when you cut... I'm just wondering if woman's macro's are the same....

    Percentages do not allow for individual uniqueness, base your macro minimums off the following.


    1g protein/lb of lean body mass
    .45g of fat/lb of body weight
    Any combination of p/f/c for the rest of your caloric intake

    No, there are specific macro guidelines for minimum protein and fat that I gave you above. These are based on body mass to accommodate individual differences. There is no dietary requirement for carbohydrate so I left the remaining calories to your discretion.

    IIFYM is a philosophy of eating that allows people to enjoy a wide variety of foods while still cultivating body composition improvements.
