I've changed up my ratios starting this month. (SEE ORIGINAL POST FOR UPDATES) Although I made alot of strength gains with my diet over the past 4 months, I don't feel I've made any significant mass gains. I upped the calories by 500-600 total, bringing the total to about 3500-3600 per day.
I kept my protein content roughly the same which is about 180-200 grams per day, but by upping the calories my protein percentage then fell to about 20%. I feel the amount of protein I get per day to be in the high range and I'd rather not exceed this as high dosages of protein may be taxing to the digestive system (liver).
My new ratios will be:
65% - Carbs
20% - Protein (180g est.)
15% - Fat
Old ratios were:
50-55% - Carbs
25-30% - Protein (190g est.)
20-25% - Fat
To an omnivore bodybuilder, the carbohydrate percentage may seem a bit high and protein percentage may seem a bit low. After reading Avi Lehyani's
profile, I've decided to up the calories and match his c/f/p ratio and see what comes of it. These new percentages allow more of my fat and protein to come from my carbohydrate sources and allow me to supplement less powder protein and less oil, which is hopefully for the better. I always like to keep my protein percentage above my fat percentage as to ensure there is more protein (than fat) readily available for uptake.
