Calorie intake, empahsis on protien.

Kyle C. 3 years ago in Diet and Nutrition updated by andy 3 years ago 2

Right to the point, Im a big guy. 6'3 and was 338lbs when I decided to change my life to be healthier, and no be limited due to size. I learned about TDEE, and have always set it as sedentary to see my intake for off days.

Multiple calculators gave different results. So I started about  2600 cal TDEE and ate about 500-600 cal less a day. I lost some weight, down to 284 and was seeing the estimated weekly drop. Currently I have stalled although my weight training has improved and strength going up.


Question is,: How low of intake would be ok for someone needing to cut a lot without hurting metabolism? I see recommended protein intake is .8 to 1.2g protein per lb, but is that body weight  or lean body mass?

It all depends on the person. With your level of fatness, losing lean mass won't be much of an issue (fat is stored energy afterall). I recommend looking into my book, www.dropfactorbook.com for a blueprint on how to lose fat.
