    Exclamation IIFYM - What about going over limits, sugars, sodium, fiber, etc... ?

    I simply need to know what the limits are for Sugars, Fibers, and if watching Sodium intake is important or not.


    My daily requirement is 2748.9 Calories to Bulk (10% Surplus) so let's just say 2750.

    Protein Required: 132-247.5g (528-990 Calories)
    Fats Required: 60-120g (540-1080 Calories)



    Carbs: (Assuming I hit the Minimum Fats/Protein)
    2749 - (528 Protein Calories + 540 Fat Calories) = 1681 Carb Calories remaining
    Divided by 4 (Calories per G of Carb) = 420.25G Carbs


    SO let's say I burn 600 Calories from lifting for about 60-70 minutes, so then I'd have to add 2749 + 600 = 3349 Calories. Technically speaking, I may go over that 420g Carbs because of burning Calories at the gym and I will be safe, right? I mean I've done this and still woke up .5-1lb lighter (And I monitor my weight everyday).


    Yesterday: 168.2 LBS
    Today: 167.7 LBS

    Yesterday I burnt 600 Calories at the gym

    Yesterdays Nutritional Intake:
    Calories: 3235
    Fats: 100g
    Cholesterol: 209mg
    Sodium: 3471mg
    Carbs: 396g
    Fiber: 56g
    Protein: 209g
    Sugars: 163g - This scares me... am I ok?

    So it seems my Calories, Fats, Cholesterol, Carbs, and Protein are all OK based on my needs but what about Sodium being 3471mg (That seems super high as I normally only consume 2000mg), Fiber being 56g, and Sugars being 163g!! Isn't that way high? I get my fats from Fish Oil, Raw Almond Butter, Steak, Avocado, Cheese, etc... and Sugars normally come from my Almond Chocolate Milk, Honey, Banana/Peach/Other Fruits, Snickers, etc.. Oh I recently started following IIFYM about 3+ weeks ago and have tried having a snicker bar at least 5x a week while I'm at work (To test to see if my Abs vanish and I swear I think I'm getting more cut lol).

    Consumed 8/3/2011:
    Almonds (dry Roasted Unsalted)
    Chocolate Almond Milk
    Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread, Low Sodium
    Lean Pro-matrix Protien Powder (chocolate)
    Natural Fish Oil Concentrate
    Old Fashioned Oatmeal
    Organic Raw Honey
    Peach
    Soft Spreadable Light Cream Cheese
    Nuggets - Milk Chocolate With Almonds
    Super Energy Booster - Raspberry
    Avocado
    Lean Pro-matrix Protien Powder (chocolate)
    Subway Club
    White Macadamia Nut Cookie
    Snickers
    Smoked Snack Stick
    Avocado Salsa Verde
    Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (kirkland)
    Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread, Low Sodium
    Green Beans, Trimmed & Cleaned
    Lean Pro-matrix Protien Powder (chocolate)
    Lime
    Lite Cheddar Cheese Slice
    Low Sodium Minestrone Soup
    Natural Fish Oil Concentrate
    No Sugar Added Pudding
    Organics Sweet Potatoes
    Vanilla Almond Milk (unsweetened)
    Very American Salad



    Lot of info but I did that to try minimizing questioning, and still making this readable...


    ....As usual, I am greatful for any help. Thanks

    Sodium is of no concern unless you already have preexisting hypertension.

    Other than that your sugar intake is also of no concern, neither is your fiber intake (except if you are having some #2 issues)...

    Sugar is a CHO.
    Sufficient fiber intake shouldn't be a problem, assuming your diet includes fibrous plant matter.
    Na intake is likely a non-issue, unless you're a hyperresponder.

    P.S. Judging from the content of the rest of your post, I fear that you didn't read the stickies or, if you did read them, didn't understand the content. Please try reading them again, starting with: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?p=436716771

    Why would you make a poll and not include a simple no as an option?

    That three word post you noted was an attempt to help and the sentiments of PWOGasMan are correct.

    Ah, nice.. yeah no Hypertension from what I know but my Father is a Diabetic... Wonder if that has anything to do with it... Tried doing a quick search on Hypertension and it's inherited from parents basically... I hope having high sugars (from Potato, fruits, etc) doesn't cause me to develop Hypertension

    You seem awfully angry. Plus, I think his post was relatively self-explanatory, there isn't a need to do it as long as you can use common sense and some moderation. The reason I don't track all that is because I eat a balanced diet with proper variety. The same reason I don't count micronutrients, eat well and you'll be fine. Quit stressing over the small things.

    First, I'd like to thank you WonderPug cause I've noticed you're always responding to my questions.

    Now, I've read the stickies a lot, can you explain what you meant by judging from the content of the rest of my post? Are you going to say something in the nature of "Stick to more whole foods"? Jw... Didn't have much protein sources around yesterday, but today I have Chicken/Steak to substitute the Shakes.

    ^ You concern about sugar separate from your total CHO intake, for example, implies that you have not read (or at least understood) the stickies.

    Additionally, the wide range of protein intake that you list also implies a degree of confusion.

    Alright so I'll stop worrying about that. Now for wide range of protein intake I listed, are you talking about the sources I get my protein from, or the 132g-247.5g (528-990 Calories) that I mentioned is my requirement?

    Sugars are honestly irrelevant.

    Consider this: Most people would consider eating sweet potatoes, babana, blueberries, etc...VERY "healthy".

    However, if you ate: 1 Large Banana (16g sugar), 100g of blueberries (10g sugar), 2 cups of 2% milk (20g sugar), and a large (~350g) sweet potato (30g sugar), that's already almost 80g of sugar from things most people would consider VERY "healthy".

    Now, even adding more healthy things like, oh, some plain greek yogurt, (1 cup = 9g sugar), 2 slices of whole wheat toast (6g sugar), 100g carrots (5g sugar), 3 cups of romaine lettuce (2g sugar)... even stopping there you are at about 100g from things most people think of as amazingly good for you.

    So you see.. it's really not worth tracking.

    Well, I can tell you that there are a lot of quality posters here.. They may be blunt and d¡ckheads, but they mean well. As for the original question, the only one I watch is fiber. I get plenty & I've been blessed to have the guts of gold! I can poop no matter how much fiber I get. My sugar intake varies on my meals. Some days it's lower, others it's really high. Same with sodium.

    I had a thread asking about sodium & was worried about taking in 5-6 grams but I've learned to balance the sodium with: Water, potassium & movement. There's no sense in "micromanaging" your diet. Eat whole foods, lift your ass off & get plenty of rest.

    Also good to note that if you avoid heavily processed foods, it becomes harder and harder to consume large amounts of sodium without adding salt to your food. Most of it comes from cured meats, fast foods, etc. Not that anything is WRONG with that if you can fit it in, but that's were most comes from... typically produce and whole foods are relatively low in salt.





    Right now I think I get about 60g of sugar and probably around 2g of sodium.. but I don't really TRY to change those numbers.
