what do your macro's look like?
I am just starting with counting my macro's. As the macro's vary so much, would you mind sharing what your macro's are in grams? Can you also state your weight, height, age? Also, how successful are you with your ratio? thx:up:

Mine are generally in the same range of about 14g or less carbs, 90g of fat and around 55g protein but often, it is less protein and more fat or visa versa. I am post meno and my stats are in my signature.

While it might be a little interesting to see what others' macros are, it really doesn't tell you what will work for you. It is entirely individual and anyone who has been doing n.k. for a while will have experimented and learned what they need to do. You would find vastly different #s between people and it doesn't mean one person is doing it 'better' or more correctly - it means that they have done the work to figure out what is appropriate for them.

The other thing to keep in mind is that it is not static. Things change and evolve and my macros will have to be adjusted accordingly.

Yes, it's VERY individual.

I'm 5'6", 40 years old (with some serious health issues) and have 150 lbs of lean body mass. I get a hydrostatic body analysis done thrice a year, to make sure I am on track with losing fat and minimizing loss of LBM as much as possible. It also helps me keep an eye on the viability of my ultimate goal.

My daily goals are to eat fewer than 20g total of carbohydrates, and around 120g of protein. I don't count fat or calories, and both vary by quite a lot.

I've eaten this way since January 3, 2013, and I've lost about 65 pounds of fat and just about 4.5 lbs of LBM.

thanks! I agree, it is highly individual, I was curious!
