  1. Hi Talia! I just checked out your blog, your training looks incredible! I have had a really difficult time with diet. I used to could all of my calories, weigh everything, etc. and it was very difficult to manage. To calculate my calories (which is really just a guideline) I took 1.5 g per pound of body weight for protein, 1 g for carbs, and .5 g for fat. Then I calculated the calories from there (Fat: 1 gram = 9 calories; Protein: 1 gram = 4 calories; Carbohydrates: 1 gram = 4 calories) I really try to focus the most on protein to make sure that I get in 30g per meal. I have read a lot on bodbuilding.com, and I based the marcos a lot off of clutch cut: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ashley-conrads-21-day-clutch-cut-nutrition.html, but I didn’t think there was enough protein in this diet, so I added .5 g more. I may end up cutting a bit off of the carbs/protein to even it out eventually. What type of diet are you doing? Do you count calories carefully?

  2. Thanks for the link–that’s helpful! I am counting calories and macros, but I’m like you, diet is where I struggle the most. I’m always second-guessing. Right now I’m doing .8 to 1 gram of protein per pound (I’m 150 lbs and just can’t eat more than that right now), and my plan is about .6 grams of fat per pound but I always go over. Peanut butter!! 🙂 And then as many carbs as I need to hit about 1800 calories on non-workout days and 2300 on training days. I use the Lose It! app to track and it’s pretty easy. My biggest struggle is trying to balance tracking without unhealthy obsession…
