Miss Marissa gets fat

FAT as in the MACRONUTRIENT!

 

I've been feeling super fatigued the past few weeks and after discussing with my coach we decided I'm probably eating too much protein (sayyy whaaattt???) and not enough fat. So this challenge will be with me experimenting with my macros a bit to try to balance that out. I'm also going to try to not be so obsessive compulsive about tracking my meals in a spreadsheet because that leads to eating disorders.

 

I'm currently running Hatfield's 12 week peaking program (just started this week) and I'm pretty set on the workout front. They will be posted in the battle log and typically cross posted here for deadlift face glory.

 

1) GET FAT

Attempt to get more fat in my diet. I think I'm going to aim for the following macronutrients:

Rest days: P/F/C: 150/70/100-150   <--- lower end if the following day is also a rest day, higher if the following day is a workout day

Workout days: P/F/C: 150/70/250-300

 

The goal is to determine what is a good ratio for me. I will using some sort of phone app and x-post here for accountability.

 

2) GET BIG

I've started taking creatine. This is a thing that I need to make a regular habit. I feel good, lifts are good, clothes look good. Let's keep it up, shall we?

 

Take ~5g creatine daily.

 

3) But don't get too fat

I live like a mile away from work. There is no excuse for me to NOT walk at least once/ week to and home from work. Even though it is February and cold and snowy, it's tolerable. I get some sunshine, get to drink a nice cup of tea/coffee and get my mind right before heading in. 

 

Life Goals for this year will be COMPOUNDING as appropriate. With that being said.

 

1) Don't be a hoodrat

Look fabulous. Take selfies. Post here for everyone's pleasure.

 

2) Don't be a slob

So I moved in December.... there are still boxes that need unpacking. Goal is by the end of the challenge all boxes will be unpacked. I also have things to sell on Craigslist: 1 or 2 chairs, Mr. J old clothes, a TV and a motorcycle. An attempt should be made to donate or sell all of these items.

Did this almost daily for 6 straight years in Madison... with the benefit of a beard that made a nice wind break once it iced over.

HEYYYY!

:D

Yeah, I think a lot of us overeat on protein and undereat fat and carbs because there's so much "protein = strength" BS floating around. You and I both probably only need 100-120g a day, but it's TASTY! I've started consciously adding butter or oil to things because I know I need to keep my fat intake up (carbs is now easy, after lots of practice).

It usually takes me a year or so to unpack a move.

There was a discussion on another thread somewhere.  Where I go, they feed 2.2g/kg.  What I am reading on that thread is pointing to 1.8g/kg.

 

Love SS comments and advice.

 

[EDIT 1.0 g/lb vs 0.8 g/lb.  On MM Thread I should be speaking MM language not SS language.  :P]

I've been upping my fats too, interested on seeing how you feel for this experiment.  I may have to redo my nutrition too.

More protein doesn't really harm you, unless you're neglecting other macro- or micro-nutrients.

(Or you have a pre-existing condition for which protein should be limited.)

As a person who had the .GOV move him yearly... the unpacking is Christmas time and donation time.

 

Hopefully, I just moved into the place I will stay at until I retire into the golfing community or win the powerball.

Keto sounds fucking horrible. Nothing about keto sounds pleasing. At all. And it seems like there is only a select few people who it actually works for, like magical fucking fairies. Damn.

It's not too shabby! I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

HIIII!!!!!

That's a thing I should maybe start doing. Protein and carbs have always been easy for me, fat is always the struggle.

 

I will be interested to see how you do the macronutrient thing.

 

I can't keep up with more than 2 things at once, so protein and calories is all I'm tracking right now. Maybe next challenge I'll have to experiment :)

 

YAY Selfies!

Yeeeaaaaa tracking! We'll see how this goes.

Before I was getting typ around 3g/kg of protein, which is kind of excessive I think.

Coach says roughly 1.25 g/lb of LEAN body mass, which nearly equates to 1 g/lb of total body mass. I think I'm at the point now where protein is no longer a struggle and I need to find balance because MOAR protein =/= better.

3g/kg??? Lol that's typical??? Everything I've ever heard was 1g/lb. Jeezus...3g would equal about 250g a day for me. I struggle to consistently hit the 180-185.
