    For satiety or performance?

    For satiety, higher fat tends to be preferable IMO but I hate the lack of sustained energy I have when training lower carb, and plus, you tend to have larger portions with higher carb, so I've been converted to being in favor of that, even though my palette is more keen on fat and is not drawn to sweets.

    Option 2 has ~200 more calories than the other two...

    So if all you wanted was to lose fat, either Option 1 or 3... because it's a higher deficit.

    Yeah it takes a lot of trial and error to find what works for you. For me personally I would do option 1 and then time some complex carbs 2-3 hours before my workout on lifting days.

    One benefit with a lot of carb based foods out there can be stored for a long time, like rice, oats, beans, pasta, etc - it's a very cheap diet. Effects on the body with only protein and carbs at your disposal is another story though.

    Personally I’ve never tried a super low carb diet because my body just doesn’t function properly without carbs, but you must find what works for you. A very low fat diet Isn’t ideal either in my opinion. I have tried going very low with fats so that I could get lots of carbs but I feel much better with a more balanced approach. Muscles are fuller, energy is better (less ups and downs) and I feel better in general.

    That’s why I would stay somewhere in the middle with a set amount of protein, a good amount of fat (for me at least 1 gr/kg) and the rest filled with carbs or fat based on preference and on what I’m craving during the day. Once you eat enough protein and watch your calories I don’t think it makes a big difference. Do what you enjoy and what works for you.

    I prefer higher carb

    Carbs taste better imo

    Like

    Ex:

    Steam veggies/fresh vs sautéed, I’m happy either way

    Low fat dairy vs full fat, pretty happy either way

    Low carb muffins vs regular, I’m happy only 1 way

    Replace my rice or potatoes with cauliflower or my pizza crust, I’m not ok with it I won’t be satiated





    Also low carb I feel like utter ass, low fat I don’t notice

    IME... super high carb, high protein, moderate fat. Low nothing

    Calories are more important but you have to consider performance fuel and satiety, so also most of those carbs need fiber. And I eat way more protein than I need, technically, but it’s filling AF and probably increases overall TEF. To any significant degree? Idk, but my diet seems to work for me.

    Which ever allows you to consistently have a weekly calorie deficit. The best for most people is somewhere in the middle of the two
