A proper diet constructed with macros adding up everything to meet certain numbers every day has never worked for me. Granted I tried it once last cycle.
Me eating my diet of my normal foods and not trying to fit into a 3 number diet. It has always worked fine for me. When I started to try to only eat a certain number of calories protien carbs and fats like I did on my last cycle was the only time I’ve had diet issues. I thought that if I made my diet fit with what everyone says should be the numbers it would equal more gains it actually made me gain a ton of weight and become extremely bloated. I believe that it was definitely the carbs because my carb intake wouldn’t have been that high with my normal diet.
I learned from this that my diet can’t be determined by someone else i can’t take a set of numbers and try to change everything that has worked for me over the years.
I have been incredibly dedicated to trying to learn more about diet and macros and my first time around running a cycle with a diet set up like this failed miserably.
Me eating my 6 meals a day putting down meat veggies and rice ,beans, peanut butter, eggs. Me just eating like that instead of me trying to really over complicate things works best for me it has time and time again.
It doesn’t appear critical and negative in any way its a very straight forward question. Diet is the most important thing besides training for us to meet our goals.
I wasn’t successful with trying to count everything it didn’t work well for me at all but I will always work on trying to learn everything I can. Knowledge can only take you forward. Im always open to new ideas and learning.
