I also don't believe in that low carb shit, eat clean; veggies, fruit, grains and add in whatever meat and as long as it comes to my target calorie intake I don't care.
I agree totally. However, for me fat loss is first and foremost. Seeing my stomach trim up makes me very happy. I realize that with the weight program just beginning, the scale shows the results right now.
Low carb, medium carb, whatever. I target 1500 calories on non-workout days. You could hit your target with all fat, eat about 8 ounces of mayonnaise. You could do it with all carbs, drink, 3 quarts of cranberry juice per day. You get the point. Balancing what you take in to reach the desired goal is important.
I am going to start this next week and see how it works for me:
No weights with cardio: 175 protein/150 carbs/30g fat
Weights and cardio: 200g protein, 110g carbs, 30g fat
Weights: 220g protein, 90g carbs, 25g fat
