    Can 5% to 10% more protien make a huge difference?

    168lbs 5ft 8inches

    This is something I have noticed recently - I’m trying to see if anyone else has experienced this and if I should go ahead and make this a permanent macro change.

    I have been cutting at 1800-1900 calories and been eating atleast 170g protien. Some days I go over on protien and maybe hit 190g or more.

    After a few hours I just feel stronger and muscles feel harder and later that day or next day it feels as if I recovered better. Not every time - but most times if I’m paying attention.

    Could just 15g to 20g more protien make that big a difference? I can reduce my carb intake to offset?

    More of a curiosity question than anything as I advance in this BB journey and learn what my body responds to.

    If anything, protein just makes me feel fuller. Carbs are what give me more energy.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    That’s what I thought. For me spinach and carrots make me feel full. Protein helps me stay full longer and carbs just yum!
