I’ve done decently well at sticking to my maintenance macros this first week. My original goals were to keep the macros in the range:
- Protein: 165-175 g
- Fat: 160-170g (updated later to 145-155g)
- Carbs: 25g (max)
- Calories: 2120-2250
Here’s the daily average of my last 7 days.
Looks like I hit the top end of my calories range (gross, but net was way under due to over-exercising this past week). Protein was over by 10 grams a day (pretty close). Carbs were very close. Fat was still a bit lower than the range I set at the start but I had adjusted the fat number down to accommodate the nominal 20 g of carb.
These numbers are 32.5%, 4.4%, 63% of calories from Protein, Carbs, and Fat.
So what happened with weight? My goal was to stay in the 165-175 lbs range and I’ve done that so far. I had a pop up a couple of days ago when I deliberately loaded a bunch of salt to prepare for a long bike ride the next day.
Across 2 weeks my weight has gone up and down a few lbs but looks pretty stable.
I am committed to sticking to these macros for the rest of the month.
