Dewii Posted January 12, 2014 Share Posted January 12, 2014 Hi, I need help with my diet! One year ago I ate similar amount of calories (sometimes a little bit less), but I didn't eat enough protein - I ate a lots of fruit, vegetables, oatflakes, muesli, homemade "healthy" desserts, etc - mainly carbs, then pulses, sometimes tofu and nuts&seeds. I ate only around 40 g of protein per day, sometimes even less. I was thin and I started to do workout - muscles grew although my protein intake was low. Last few months I gained weight (10 kg), cause I started to eat more (I started to eat more protein and even carbs as well) and sometimes I ate too much - something out of it are muscles (I went to gym 4 times per week), but a lots of fat too. Now I want to lose weight and get ripped. I started to eat more protein (1,5 g per 1 kg - it's 81 g of protein for me) and cutted carbs (213 g). Do you think it's good for my goal? (Btw. I'm 5'6 tall and I weight 128 lbs, I want to lose only around 7 pounds jus to get more ripped and have less fat.)Can I gain weight (not muscles of course, but fat) from protein? I red about "protein" and "carb" type of people, I think I'm carb type (I really miss fruit - now I don't eat more than 3 pieces of fruit per day), cause I was really thin even if I ate mainly carbs. But I'm scared that I will lose my muscles when I will eat as one year ago. Any help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
