Hey everyone, I posted an introduction on the introductions page.
I am just after some nutritional tips for building muscle while keeping minimal body fat. I am really keen and focusing on cycling, but the extended cardio has left me a bit scrawny, so I am trying to put on muscle while still keeping a low body weight/fat.
I am currently 6"4' and about 163/164 pounds- tall and lanky
I am lifting weights 5 times a week, and cycling 30km 4 days a week and maybe 100km on the 5th day? I rest when I am sore/tired
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

Keep your fat intake between 6-10%, protein intake at 10% and get enough carbs to avoid catabolism, 70-80% coming from carbs.

You're probably using more fuel than you are putting in the tank. :wink:

I would suggest little more protein/fat, like around 15-20% for protein and 15-20% for fat with the rest being carbs which would be in the 55-65% range.

Do you know what your various ranges are now?
