I've just joined this site and just started lifting so i have a whole bunch of newbie questions - please be nice :-)
I'm a week or so into the NROLFW apart from eating loads of protein do i need to think about taking anything else? As well as trying to lose my stomach over hang i want to build muscle not just tone.
I'm quite confused about how much to eat of what type of food. I'm 5 ft 7 and around 147 lbs i know i need to have 1g of protein per lbs of my own bodyweight. Based on a calculation i'm told i should be aiming for 2300 cals when i'm lifting and around 300 less on the rest days but i don't know
A; if that is sufficient for my goals
B: how to work out my carbs, protein and fat intake. how does that divide between my number of cals?
After a week or so of following the NROLFW i'm feeling quite fatigued, could just sleep - maybe its to do with my period? but its making me think i'm not eating right.
I'm sure the answers are really simple but i'm trying to do this working out at home by myself and finding the numbers a bit mind blowing. Would be great if people could suggest specific numbers/formula
