Carb minimum and a protein question

Is there a minimum amount of carbs you need to maintain and build muscle or could you be fine with say 150 grams of carbs or less while fat intake goes up to reach calorie goal? Also, is there any situation in which you would need more protein than the recommended 0,7 grams per lbs of bodyweight...

Joys of starting a bulk

Started my bulk this week and have been reminded of one of the not so fun side effects, at least for me.... GAS. Hopefully my stomach will get used to the increased calories sooner rather than later. At least for now it's just air and no smell.

Are low carbs my best option?

I have been on a deficit for the past 2 weeks and have not lost a single pound. I do hit my daily fats and daily protein and I just fill the rest with carbs. Should I be eating more protein and lower the carbs or should I go on a deeper deficit?

Bit of an odd question on macro density of foods

So let's take zuchini for example. According to MFP, 300 grams of zuchini is only 51 calories because it's made up of 9 grams carbs, 1 g fat and 4 g protein. That means that the macro density is only 5% of the total weight. What is the other 286 g made up of? Obviously this is a stark contrast to...
