    Question Its 0.7g of protein per lb of BW and 0.4g of fat per lbs of BW but should fat be more

    Hey Guys,

    Could not write more into the title. My question is it's .7 protein and .4 for fat and the rest to carbs. Should we increase fats and reduce carbs as fats are good for the body. Would this theoretically put the body in mini keotsis in which it utilities protein to repair and fat for energy ? As when people reduce carbs they are able to burn more fat as their body relies on the body glycogen stores and uses fat as energy? I am not a science major and talking broscience terminology to ask a question. I am asking this as carbs are used for energy most of all and that protein and fats can keep as feeling more satiated (don't know how to spell it it, meaning fuller). Like why .7 and .4g respectively and not more for each of these and reducing carbs?

    because they are minimums, nobody is saying that's the recommended "average" intake

    Figure out how many calories you need in a day for your goal.

    Eat 0.7 and 0.4 minimum. Whatever calories you have left, eat what you want.

    It's really that simple. Anything more than that leads to a mind boggling diet which is confusing and often difficult and depressing to follow.

    Both numbers are minimums, not suggestions. The most important number is total calories. Your macros can vary from day to day, just try to hit the protein and fat minimums (both should be fairly easy when bulking).

    Here's an interesting article on different bulking approaches:
